We recently gained a new store in town.
I've seen bloggers from across the country mention Hobby Lobby Arts & Crafts
over the past years but I'd never visited one.
A few days ago I was looking for some summer greenery for the dining room
and had heard this store had a great selection of faux florals etc.
My two vintage iron containers needed something green and airy which wouldn't
require direct light or constant watering, but would add a touch of color. . . . so
faux was the way to go for a little summer oomph!
I found two small ferns in tiny pots which I've transferred to larger white china pots
I already had. I bought one spray of the trailing greenery which
is quite pretty - cut it up and divided it between the two pots. I quite like the cool
feel of this look with the two inverted antique Victorian flower baskets. . . . . . but
I may move them around later as they do take up a lot of space and will need to
be moved when we eat here.
Hobby Lobby is quite a place - especially if you're into crafting and signs!
They do have a huge amount of merchandise and I only skimmed the surface,
but I did notice signs. . . . . . . . . . more signs than I've ever seen. . . .
and several caught my eye.
This simple quote I would love to look at often - I may have to go back for this one.
Being a world traveler, off to often new and unexpected places,
I agree that coming home is more than special.
I love this short quote on bold painted wood.
I thought of my blog friend Donna which I saw this pillow - her blog titled GATHER is one
of my favorites. Donna, you need this!
. . . . . and there were a few lovely framed prints that caught my eye - such as this
one of the dilapidated farmhouse and barn. If I had somewhere to hang it I would
definitely have brought this home. Perhaps can make a space for it, just thinking!
