Small Town Living at Its Best

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life.

Pink Saturday

On my list of things I want to do in my life - I had listed a visit to Curious Sofa in Prairie Village, Kansas. I had seen it in "Romantic Homes", and Better Homes and Gardens Holiday books. They are featured this fall in Better Homes and Garden's Halloween issue. Last weekend, I took my DIL and #1GD to see it and came away MORE than impressed! I highly recommend it - it is chock FULL of great stuff. I had to have a little package of my own, you know a few black crows and a rat. Oh yeah! and a copy of the special issure of Halloween Better Homes and Gardens magazine. They told me while I was there, that they will be featured in the Christmas one too!

This beautiful wreath certainly catches your eye when you walk in the door.

When you first walk in the door, there was this awesome ceramic planter full of "hands"! So awesome!

The entire ceiling of this business has such appeal! There are many different types of tin squares.

How about a curtain of sparkley, pokey things? Ha!

Look at the Chandi's, aren't they gorgeous?

These lanterns have old brown bottles in them, what a great idea!

And to think that 2 years ago, we sold 2 dozen sets of deer antlers on an auction, sure wish I'd kept one or two...........

Piano, anyone?

I just love this display of crystal and candles!

DIL and #1GD, check out the bargains!

We're checking out the Men's room - look at that sink! The chair on the right side of the photo was sittin up against a desk. Yes, a desk and chair in the men's room!

Sorry if you think this is tacky - but I love the fringe on the sink in the girls room!

This amazing display reminded me of my pile of projects I need to complete!

These are so totally awesome, and how easy !

I just about had a heart attack! An old chair springs - with candles in insulators. I just did a blog about my insulators a couple of months ago, and now they are worth HOW MUCH? hmmmmm

Mom are you loooking? I want at least one of these!

These two were such help, and willing to let me take photos, "as long as you promise to send in a lot of business!" I'm trying, I'm trying!

It took me 1/2 hour to realize these gorgeous lace panels had BATS on them!

This is where I got the idea for my web's on my windows. I'll show you mine next week!

Greta is one of my favorite shopping partners, and look at her stylin! I'm using this as my pink post this week - it's got a little of both - Halloween AND my Pink #1GD! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! Sandi
