Ready for a field trip?

Today Emily and I were ready for a visit to The Plum Tree in downtown McDonough, Georgia. Oh. my. goodness....Cindy has it looking so amazing! I had to take the camera because I KNEW it was going to be wonderful and it WAS!

Take a look around and tell me if you don't agree ~ click on any photo to enlarge and examine things closely. And she'll ship small things if you see something you can't live without!


























What did I find? A wonderful old Physics notebook with handwritten notes (I promise to share a few scans with you!) a small French book, another baby dress to alter and the new issue of Romantic Homes....oh, and a Warm Home Heritage Candle....my fav! It smells likes cookies are baking all the time!
Wishing you a wonderful Saturday sweet friends,
xxoo, Dawn

This is the type of shop I just love discovering. Lately, I've been almost obsessed with wanting to go out and discover some new ones around here but have to restrain myself.

Thanks for the yummy pictures!

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

How I wished we had wonderful shops like this. I'm sure it makes my hubby happy and relieved we don't. I would leave my credit card smoldering from all the little treasures I'd purchased.

Sweet Wishes,
Sara

Dawn,
Could this shop be more perfect for you? It is lovely, and each treasure and display makes me think of your beautiful creations. It seems to me that you have a very blessed life. Surrounded by nature's beauty and others who celebrate your kindred spirit.

I love it! Do you have to ask permission to take pictures of a pretty shop?

Have a great Sunday!
Elizabeth

Elizabeth G. said...

Dawn,

Another question...Where do you get the high quality looking eggs for the nests you make? I'm working on Spring projects and the ones at the craft store (Roberts) are cheapy-looking plastic. Ugh.

Blessings,
Elizabeth

Oh Dawn, this is a real treat for me as Cindy carries some of my pieces, so I was wondering where my little treasures were living. If only I were closer I would be shopping there for sure. Thanks so much for sharing. Have a wonderful Sunday..Kathi

What a wonderful shop! I would love to have that bird lamp. Do you happen to know how much she wanted for it? How is Emily feeling? Have a great week.
