What a treat! Whenever I am driving in the countryside I am so grateful that we live in such a pretty part of the country, driving through farmlands with views of snow covered mountains when one turns a corner. So lucky that we have such beauty so close to the city. It was super sunny yesterday too! All the antique shops are in old bungalows, storefronts, train depots or mills and everything was decorated with bunting and hanging flower baskets. So cheery to put one in the mood to shop!
In my favorite shop I found a fascinating Art Deco curio cabinet that I thought might work in a narrow spot between a light switch and a vent. It has glass shelves above and it has interior lights. I thought we could store stemware above and stack china in the doors below.
I couldn't get the doors to open, but I was able to pull open the drawer and found this label inside. My favorite baby name right now and the piece was made in Tacoma.
Eventually I made my way over to the Mill.
The second item was a white wicker planter. I feel like the original front porch is looking a little forlorn and barren. I know seating is out of our price range right now, but one little plant by the front door will go a long way in looking welcoming. I'm thinking maybe white geraniums since it gets a lot of sun.
