This was my favorite of all the shops. They had such cute stuff--from clothes to home goods to lighting and various other knickknack-type souvenirs.
Here's a basket holding colorful Dash and Albert rugs.
Loved these pendants.
How fun would these pillows be in a little boy's room?
These pillows were hand dyed by a couple of ladies now living in China (one of them used to work in this shop.)
Cool driftwood framed mirrors.
I mentioned that the island had an abundance of flowers everywhere. I snapped this picture of a unique-looking Black-eyed Susan. Have you ever seen this variety before?
In another shop, there were a bunch of driftwood signs...they gave me some ideas of what to do with my piece of driftwood:)
I loved these little hooks...so practical.
Here is another pendant that caught my eye. This was made out of real wood. Cool, isn't it?
I wanted to take this whale platter home with me but was too afraid to look at the price tag. I have a thing for whales but not hefty price tags;)
Some glass fishnet floats at an antique store on the island. A collection of these (and colored) floats as a centerpiece on a dining room table would look gorgeous. Can't you see it--all lying in a huge wooden dough bowl?
The antique store had these colorful goblets there as well. They reminded me of a post Camille did last week about the July issue of House Beautiful.
Can't you see those goblets right at home here in this cabinet?
And to finish up the tour--I couldn't resist taking a shot of this classic riding down the street. Sigh...one day I will own a classic car or truck.
So there ya have it--my New England mini-vacay. If you've never been up North, you should totally take a trip some time. Just driving through Connecticut was so inspiring. One day (probably when we're retired) I want to just drive around visiting antique shops and eating seafood up there. Ahh...that'd be the life!
