porch {so inspiring}

November 2nd | decorating



oh, i love this store.

this is a go-without-kids-and-take-your-time shop.

you have to soak it up.




i love lanterns and candlelight.

i want to hang a bunch of lanterns in our workshop.




there is so much natural light in the store

and texture

and lots of nature.




little salt cellars with tiny spoons

and beautiful glass cups.




aren’t those large ‘all you need is love’ signs fun?

so simple but a big statement.




if you’re driving by santa barbara on the 101, it’sĀ  worth a stop!

check out their facebook page here.

    Oooh Lisa, I love love love stores like this one. Here where I live we don’t have a lot of them, in fact hmmm any?? Pookies!! As for fall inspiration, it is late Spring here and we’re heading for a hot, dry summer.. this inspires me to craft because I won’t be able to garden in the middle of the day! Ummm autumn inspiration – Put piles of autumn leaves in a few corners in your house.. they look fabulous and dry out beautifully! I have some here in my studio from last autumn. Hugs..

    Wonderful photos! You always find such neat places and you do such a good job capturing the moment and sharing it with us. Thanks!

  11. i love those LOVE signs, too! i was going to put that quote on a necklace but chose something else instead. i want to make some signs like that though! šŸ˜‰ that shop looks divine!!

    Question for you: I love the pictures you take in shops and I’ve wanted to do the same where we live. BUT, I feel awkard (especially in small shops) taking out my camera! Do you ask if you can take pictures of everything or just go for it??

    I hope everything turns out great with David and I love your green shoes.

    It’s such a beautiful shop. The lighting and “goodies” are so pretty.

    We haven’t decorated indoors yet, but we did place some heirloom pumpkins & corn w/husks on the front steps. It’s so welcoming when we drive up.

    God Bless!
