High Point, here we come!

Pam and I have wanted to attend the market at High Point for about 5 years, now.  That's how long we've been in business.  We are finally going, and we will be there for four full days.  That sounds like a long time, but take a look at this map:

When we go to Dallas market, we easily spend 2 full days in one building!  I honestly don't know how we'll do it.  We don't want to miss anything, but I don't think we'll last long in a dead run, either!!!   Cute shoes are losing out to comfortable shoes, for sure.  

Watch our facebook page for updates during the week----that is if we aren't running too fast to post something.   We do have some of your phone numbers in case we feel the need to send you a photo of something you might not be able to live without!  You can still text us your want list, too.  

The shop is closed next week, April 23-27.  

Check in the following week to hear about our adventure in High Point!!!

Birds: real and otherwise

 If you've followed our blog for the last couple of years, you know our dove family.  They originally built their home above the front door---but moved to our unused planter outside the upstairs door.  It seems they've given up on the decorating and building, and have simply just used what was there!  It happens to the best of us!

 A new collection of birds can be found in in our display from "Wishnest".  The tiny artwork is a hand sculpted pewter cast of birds and nests.  The artist, Alise Sheehan, has created these as a" reminder to be thankful and conscious of our blessings, dreams, and wishes and also of the importance of our connection to nature."  A Wishnest set would be a thoughtful housewarming or graduation gift.

 These elegant white porcelain ceramic birds would be a nice addition to stained shelving.  They look great with all decor, and really brighten up those dark areas that other objects tend to get lost in.

 There are several styles of pillows available in the shop featuring birds.  You can choose a dressier embroidered pillow or a casual block-print. 

 We just received the beautiful solid glass birds.  They could serve as paperweights or just a pretty addition of color to your cocktail table.

 Peacock feathers are hot right now.  Their bright colors are found in almost every type of decor and in the newest fabrics.  These screenprinted pillows are rectangle in shape---harder to find than you might expect!

 This metal wall hanging has a real "nature" feel to it!  

In addition to the single white bird statues, we have these pretty white planters that are designed to look like a nest with two birds sitting on the side.  

If you need to add a touch of nature to your home, look through our selection of bird decor, you're bound to find just the right addition.

Advertising for a home decor shop

OK, feedback is appreciated.  Here's the latest photo we are using for advertising.  The Joplin Globe will run this on Easter Sunday, and we are crossing our fingers people will notice.  What are your first thoughts when you see this photo?  Does it entice you to drop by the shop, and if not, what is it that drives you to go shopping?  Inquiring minds want to know!

 Not shown are the more personal items we keep for frequent shoppers and gift-givers:  bath and body fragrances, candles, jewelry and scarves, and purses.  Yep, we've even got those in here.

Drop by and take a look, we have been getting additional items each week.  If you need/want something unique your first stop should be MLI!
