The Girl Can't Help It

The light was so pretty in here this afternoon that I took the opportunity to photograph a few more of our Spring tableaux. I just can't resist good light. And so...

(above) She's called 'Recital' and she's by special order only. Sorry, folks, we only have one of her at the moment and I just can't bear to give up my window display. When I pull up to the shop in the morning and get out of my car, I feel inspired just looking at her. Something in her eyes is so winning--vulnerable and searching, yet determined.

(above) These handpainted Moroccan glasses from France are meant for drinking tea. The boho chic hipster in us really grooves on an idea like that, but if you're not feeling that fancy, each glass takes a tealight perfectly. Its tiny flame will light up the sweet handpainted flowers with a warm glow.

(above) One or two of our mossy green lions could stand sentinel at your gate. What a romantic idea. Your very own sentinel!

(above) These lucky cast iron birdies peck at our new chocolate covered sunflower seeds by The Cocoa Room. By the way, it's been a few strong women and far between who have made it out of here without sampling some. I meant what I said in the last blog about a box of these and my day off.

(above) Farmhouse meets chic.

(above) A starfish looks so refreshing to the eye right now, doesn't it? Not only for summertime, marine-inspired accents add a touch of relief for the sun-starved psyche any time of year.

(above) We get more questions about our bendy candles than almost anything else. Every day, people want to know "what we do" to get them that way, or if they can buy them that way. The truth is, hot air rises and does the job for us, as most of our candelabra tend to be up near the ceiling. We like the funky effect and leave them that way. They make our customers smile.

(above) I always seem to find a way to spy on this Art Nouveau lady through my lens. She's just such an interesting subject, don't you think?

(above) A grouping of night owls is watched over by a femme fatale.

(above) Our Raja Market Scale is full-on flea market chic...except it's brand new. In bold cobalt blue, this would be a formidable (pronounced the French way) accent in your kitchen, bathroom, or craft room.
(above) There's something so charming about unpolished silver. You'd never ever have to polish our silverplated coffee spoons.

(above) I am a huge sucker for a retro-style tea towel. I mean, I once decorated my entire kitchen around a really amazing one I found at my favorite shop. [sigh] If you can relate, you might like our pink Swirly Bird towels, or maybe our Rooster Blue or Yellow ones. With crocheted or pom-pom trim, how can a vintage-loving gal resist?

Thanks for indulging my sunlight-inspired photo promenade.
