This is the lovely shop I discovered on Saturday evening
while having a glass of wine at the Oktoberfest. Of course
hubby, and most other people on the green where live music
was in full swing, were quaffing large glasses of beer -
I'm just not a beer drinker - so he managed to
find me an overpriced plastic cup of a not too
bad chilled Sauvignon Blanc.
What a great guy I have!
The shops were open late so when we rounded a corner and
spied this inviting doorway, we decided to look around.
I love it when I enter a shop and someone calls out
"Welcome" and really seems to mean it, as owner Shawna
(left above)did. I love it even more when the merchandise
is gorgeous, and when I ask if I may take photos for my
blog, the answer is, "yes of course".
So, take a look at the shop dressed for Autumn,
and the pretty items that caught my eye.
Shawna, and her assistant Angelica, also design
beautiful informal floral arrangements, the kind
I love. I must go back and get some pics of their
work with flowers another time.
I was thrilled to see my long time blog friend
Vicki Archer's book on display - I know many of you follow
Vicki's fabulous blog.
I love this shop, so full of color - that's something
with me being such a 'neutral' decorator in my cottage.
On my wish list here would be the original painting
(local artist) of the irises, one of those beautiful
birdhouses, the floral inspired trumeau style mirror,
and some of those gorgeous blue planters.
I also love the menswear fabric pumpkins for fall decorating.
So, what would you like to take home from Oxford Green?
