Our Spring Event, Seven States in Seven Days was so much fun! We worked late into the night bringing in all of our treasures and when we opened the doors the next morning, a line of anxious loyal customers awaited! Things went quickly . . . but I wanted to share some photos taken the morning of. (Thanks Kim for the great photos!)
Strings of lights connected glass window frames to our tall ceilings, creating an exterior garden atmosphere. We brought in real potted plants and fresh cut wildflowers to bring life to our garden finds.
Our spring event was last week - and everyday we continue to bring in new things. Today I took some photos of the store and our current inventory.

It is hard to see it's charm in this photo of this very old see-saw from Springfield, MO. Mom and I spent some time "resting" on it as we rocked back and forth. It didn't take long before we both agreed that it had to make the trip back to with us. Now looking for the perfect home as garden art or ready to be loved again by playing children.
