Hello to all of my friends…old and new!
There were so many amazing highlights to our trip to Louisiana a couple of weeks ago.
The company, of course, was the best part.
The food was amazing.
The hospitality was grand.
And the shopping was fantastic!
Becky and her precious (yes, I said precious) husband took me to Canton, Texas, to a huge flea market. Let me tell you that this place was huge… and they kept telling me it was small for August. I will also tell you that it was HOT like no other hot I have ever felt!
The best part of our trip to Canton was that they also took me to the most beautiful shop that I believe I have ever been in. This place was amazing from the moment my foot stepped in the door.
The fragrances were amazing….the sights were beautiful…the people were friendly.
Inspiration was everywhere.
I tried to soak in every little detail because I knew I would not be back for at least a year. (LaurieAnna, I will be back though)
We asked permission to take a few photographs because I wanted to share the beauty with all of you who have never had the opportunity to go. The pictures I took will not do this place justice.
Take a look at just a little of what I saw…
This beautiful lavender greeted us at the door and I put my nose as close to it as I could without looking like a very strange out of town person.
Didn’t I tell you that it was gorgeous beyond measure?
I really want to just take my family and move in.
I also really want LaurieAnna and her talented husband to come to middle Tennessee and open up a shop.
What you need to do now is head over to LaurieAnna's Vintage Home blog and check out her beautiful new farmhouse and take a look around her online shoppe. Really, you have to go over there. And, if you are ever in Canton, Texas, you really must go to her shoppe and see what I saw.
It is truly an experience.
Oh yeah, let me show you one of the things that I brought back to Tennessee with me…
I am totally loving the look and the convenience of this bottle drying rack. Becky had one similar to this one and I loved it, so I had to bring one home with me.
The little chalkboard slate came from her shoppe also. Such fun!
Okay, head on over to LaurieAnna's when you have a few minutes to soak in some major beauty.
