Actors have a list of plays.
Painters have Exhibits.
I have Shoppes & Flea Markets that I dream of visiting. They are my creative mecca.
This weekend I got a taste of 3.
Here is the first:
A complete surprise!
While at Holiday House (our Junior Leagues annual shopping bazaar) Jeanetta and I stumbled on to Magnolia Pearls amazing booth.
But besides the delicious clothing, the Magnolia Pearl booth was magical and inventive and really seemed to be an extension of what I have seen of Robin’s home in the magazines.
I have admired her tea-stained Hill Country Texas style for a while now and it was really cool to see her creations and aesthetic up close and in person…
Jeanetta and I got lots of ideas – including a tree made from newspapers and a paper garland cut out of packing paper… I may just have to make a version of the tree for myself sometime soon. (We also noticed while we were there that Robin has a book out with Country Living which we didn’t know…)
While the Magnolia Pearl look might not be completely me – there are parts of it that I find very original and inspiring – like this outfit for instance. I just love, love that wrap. And of course I am a sucker for anything tea-stained.
I really admire Robin because she had a vision, a complete look and aesthetic all her own, and all these years she has stayed true to it, built a business around it, expanded it and found her niche. All of which I find incredibly inspiring.
For More Cute Shop Stops Stayed tuned…tomorrow I will show off another adorable -yet completely-different shoppe that I was finally able to visit this weekend!
