Inspiration + a Gift

Inspiration........comes in many many forms, let's explore a few

We are beyond excited to welcome the talented Kristy Woodson Harvey to the shop for a Southern Soiree celebrating the release of her third book, Slightly South of Simple.     
 As she travels on her book tour, we are very very lucky, Kristy is only visiting 2 spots in Illinois, WOO HOO! 

Many know Kristy as the co-uthor of the renown interior blog,  Design Chic.

These days, I have limited time to read, sadly. So my go to is typically non-fiction. The reviews for Kristys first two books were resoundingly positive with glowing reviews. So, yes, I have begun this novel..and cannot put it down!

This will be fun, please come and help us receive Kristy!


Ok, Ok, Ill do it!
I have been a hold out, with the constant refrain, I am too busy to add one more social media to my schedule.
 As many of my favorite bloggers kept disappearing from the blog scene, I knew where they were.
Then I received a letter from an Angel,
I have noticed you are not on Instagram, I love your shop, and we can help each other. More about this woman later.

Well, here I am. And l o v i n g every bit of this, Utterly hooked! I can follow and engage with some of my favorites around the world of Design, Landscaping, Antiques, Travel......and they respond!

Here are a few of my favorites .........

Cheers from England

"Are you crazy!"   (mad as a hatter)
"You cannot go away now, this is busy season!"
"What were you thinking?!?!" 
I was not seeking permission, really,  I had already booked a flight at the cusp of our busy season,.......I am going to call it my personal Self Care tour.  
Before madness reigns when landscape season begins and collides with my interiors business.

Sometimes an escape is all one needs in the end……ahem, literally. Stepping off, pulling back, changing scenery can not only lift one's spirits, but calm the mind and stir creativity, by leaps.
This Clematis was in full, glory. Spring in England is stunning
Visiting with my friend, Fleur, to see the garden in spring. On our garden tour this is one of our stops, the full extent of her garden, then a tour inside the cottage, with tea & coffee. Fleur is also a fine artist, her paintings are on full display. This is a treat as she mentioned a looming retirement with a move to the city & sadly an end to this favorite
Sylvia and I are busy planning our two tours this year;

 Gardens and Antiquing Sept. 13th - 22nd

         London Design & Antiquing 
                Oct.4th - 11th

I am excited for this maiden tour, loving every activity planned.

Do consider the madness excuse when you too need a get-away....so important for the soul.                                
NOW, sigh......coming home to a back log.....well worth it!
