A Red Letter Day

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 collectionbut 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.


  1. What a gorgeous shop - I'd be penniless after a visit there, so many amazing things !

  2. Wow. Wonderful shop. That blue and white striped duvet would make beautiful placemats for your table.....
