come window shop with me!

The girlie and I stopped by one of my favorite shops the other day. The kind of place it feels good to support.  Owned by a mother and daughter team....eclectic.....thoughtfully put together.

We can pretend we're meandering through together, k?
"Oh, look at that cute sign," I'd say.
And you'd say, "Megan, come over here and see this.  It looks just like you."
"Aww, that's just adorable."
I think virtually shopping in other people's towns through their blogs is fun! Like this time with Shannan and whenever Meg visits her fav antique place during Craft Weekends. The art of display fascinates and inspires me. I think the gals that own this shop do an awesome job of putting things together artfully. (If you're in West Michigan, visit Everlasting Blooms.  Here's their blog.)

There's a greenhouse portion at the back and Lucy adores their big fairy garden.  We oohed and ahhed over the tiny red mushrooms under the teensy glass bell jars.

I love a mix of vintage plus new plus plants.
