What’s not to love about a shop in a setting like this?
As you pull up to Sisters’ Garden and Bloom in Kalona, IA, the little clothes on the line greet you. Hi little clothes.
I told you about a spring visit to Sisters earlier.
But it’s truly one of those places that’s never the same twice, so you have to go back, often.
Each time I go, I discover a new treasure and marvel at the creativity
of Barb, the owner. It was her fall open house weekend, and it was great to see how beautiful everything looked. The yard was filled with teeming displays of pottery, pumpkins and outdoor art.
He looks like he knows I’ll be burning the gravy.
I recovered from that addiction recently.
Pottery arranged by color is my favorite — shopping the outside displays was like being at a beautiful flea market.
The bride and groom clones were a clever way to show off this fantastic Mad-Menesque dining room set.
“SOLD”…of course. OK, big savings for me there.
The displays and price tags themselves are works of art.
It’s real, it’s Iowa, folks.
Again, I saved $$!
These would be great in collages etc.
at Sisters that I love. It’s just fun to know someone besides you loves something so random,
and found the perfect display spot for it.
wander around the yard, as if that incentive was needed.
If you can’t go in person, visit Barb’s shop here.
Some of the enchanting music that plays at the shop will greet you at the website too.
ps You might see something you need to get yourself for Christmas.
I’m doing that now to get myself in the mood for buying for others.
