Goodness gracious, it is already March 11th and I’ve not posted at all this month. So let me make it up with a rather lengthy post here, if you will, to share with you just a smidge of loveliness over at Magpie Antiques and All Things Inspiring. I shared about Magpie HERE, so the information about the shop is somewhere in that post.
Several folks have asked how my friend, Janet (the owner of Magpie), came up with the name “Magpie” for her new store. After jotting down hundreds of ideas on a page, she decided upon “Magpie” because, after all, Magpie's collect things (oddities) for their nest. And not only are Magpies collectors of curious finds, they also like to chatter. Does this sound a little like us girls? Well, you bet it does!
This weeks photos are snippets of items to “feather our nest” with. From antique to primitive, from garden style to cottage style, there is a little of something for all. Belinda D. has her own lovely niche with gorgeous furniture painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Her adorable room is located off of the kitchen.
So let us mingle and chatter here for a moment at Magpie….
If you have a chance to stop by sometime, there are also some great places to shop along Main Street as well. Just around the corner to Magpie is Divine Decor which offers beautiful items for your home. And if all of the shopping musters up an appetite, there are great restaurants sprinkled along Main Street as well. If your honey likes BBQ, leave him there and you go shopping! *smile* There is a gun shop (on Main) with a shooting range..not that us girls would take a fancy to that (or would you?), but maybe the husband could while away some time there plinking at paper silhouette targets. I know that most of our guys don’t like to walk around pretty stores so we have to find things they would like to do, too.
Sending hugs to my blogging friends! Till next time, take time to get your nails dirty in some dirt! The weather here in California is ggggorgeous! Time to fill some empty flower pots!
