Shopping at Southern Exposure

I can't resist the gift shop at Southern Exposure. I just can't. Don't need a thing -- doesn't matter!


On my first visit I ended up with some pretty silk hydrangeas and small painted bushel-style baskets that went together like a dream. And, I admired that cotton wreath. Maybe later...


The lavender was lovely. I fear my Garden Warrior did a number on my own lavender last year. I may have a cleaner garden look but I lost a lot of blooms. So this dried lavender display was a gentle reminder to get new plants this year!


And if I had the right setting, I'd hang up a bicycle in a minute!


I'm a sucker for bird cages. I have a few so I passed these up. Reluctantly!


And these lamps I also showed in my previous post have such a warm feeling!


Of course, who could not admire this mannequin -- and her Scarlett O'Hara-sized waist. (Maybe in this contemporary period, I should refer to Lily James' Cinderella waist and all its recent press!)


Everywhere you look, the view dazzles! Yes, one takes a little extra time here!


What didn't I buy? (Yet.) Well, these sunshine-on-a-stick garden pieces have been in my mind for the past week or so.


And after all, I'm headed back there at least twice more this spring! Stay tuned!

That bike is so cool! Well, everything is really. What a gem of a store. I love places like that! I can see why it's hard to leave that store without buying anything!

Jeanie, I would love to shop here with you, I see so many pretties that would have to come home with me. I love the wreath and I always like to bring home a little lavender! Looks like the kind of shop I could spend a morning just taking it all in.
Hope have a great week........

I took a peek back at your post regarding the class you took there...what a lovely experience to have dinner in that vintage setting, and then take a class. Your mossy baskets were lovely!!
