While we prepare the shop with wallpapers I start producing and buying for the shop. Notice throw pillows directly inspired from my time spent at Ralph Lauren. Blue and white is a given when you live on the coast!
The first room starts to take shape - and about time - the shop must open now for the summer season.

Lesson: Sign your lease, move in, and open within one month!


  1. Le yum! I'm such a fan of the blue/white, but I can't seem to find a place for it in my house. As you know, I have that craftsman bungalow in WNY, and I'd have to do quite a bit of color change to make that palate work. No matter - I still love it! Have you thought about selling things in a store from your blog Nancy??

  2. Artie sent me over to see your blog, and I am so glad he did! I have just scrolled through all of these beautiful pictures, and I am definitely adding you to my favorites! laurie

  3. ditto here. Artie sent me and your blue and white sends me! Love the shop! I want to order online! I love that lamp and the long vessel on top of the bookcase. Great blog. The cedar birdhouses are so nice!

  4. What an absolute delight to discover your blog and that I'm on your "blog roll" list of recommended blogs. You're off to a great start... I can't wait to see what else you have in store for us over the coming years! Congratulations on taking this first step!!!
    Best Wishes,
