Yesterday, in my pursuit of blue plates, I went to one of my favorite local shops - B on Main.
I have NEVER entered B on Main without leaving with a brown bag in my hand.
I saw plenty of things to buy, but I held my purchases to a minimum since I am still looking for blue plates.
I love to stroll through the store and look at all the themes.
The beach theme is always a favorite of mine to look at, but I rarely buy any beach items.
Most of my 'beach' decor is shells which I pick up free on our morning walks.
I love the rustic wood bench, but I have 4 benches already.
I ALWAYS leave the shop with at least one number or letter item.
Yesterday was literally a RED LETTER day because I bought a red O for my Expedit.
I love the rusty letters,
I think I might go back a buy the 11 - I was born in November.
The numbered hand will fit into either my hand and my number collection, but it was more than I wanted to spend.
I have one of these number napkin rings in yellow and thought about buying another, but I couldn't remember which numbers I still need for my collection.
When I got home I realized that I need a 1.
I love the blue and white striped duvet cover, but it was the wrong size.
I am thinking about calling to see if they can special order it for me.
I special ordered a duvet and pillows from them years ago.
The yellow polka dot quilt on my bed is fading and I like the idea of replacing it with stripes.
I couldn't decide which of the primary color stripe towels I should buy.
I settled on the thick stripes.
Now that I look at the photo I think I need to go back and buy the thin stripes.
I bought the larger of the little chalk boards.
I'm not sure what I will do with it, but tonight I have set aside time to actually do some art projects.
I couldn't pass up the little black wooden tags.
Again, not sure how I will use them, but I am sure I can find a use.
I just have to stop at the hardware store for some heavy magnets today so I can copy this idea.
The display was a cake plate with utensil magnets.
I have the forks sitting in a bucket in my workspace just waiting for a creative idea.
So, I need to get busy, make the magnets, create some cards and
stop thinking about blue plates.
