Flora and Fern and a "Married Metals" Bench

I mentioned awhile back that Springfield has had several fun new shopping venues open up, and the latest one I want to share with you is Flora and Fern, which is right next door to the new Harrison House Market. It's full of wonderful vintage displays, topiaries, orchids, large and small potted plants and trees, and unique accessories including jewelry.

A visit to Sandstone

Phone pics...I have a love/hate relationship with them. On one hand, I'm thrilled to have a way to capture images in my favorite shops spur of the moment, but on the other, mine are less than desirable straight off the photo roll. I took these images a couple of weeks ago when we were in Joplin. I'd never been to Sandstone Gardens, and it was a beautiful experience. The garden/green houses on each side of the main retail area were enough to make me want to come back. Oh, and the restaurant provided a wonderful lunch in French Country ambiance.

Vintage Inspiration #84 Garden Inspiration

My favorite kind of Vintage Inspiration is vintage Garden goods. I'm drawn to garden related items like a backyard bunny to fresh lettuce (or just potted petunias). Give me old gardening tools, some clay pots, and some vintage seed packets and I can be happy playing for hours. So when I found out that one of Robin's new shop areas was devoted to a garden theme, my heart went pitty pat! Here are a few photos of her new shop, "The Garden District", here in Springfield. Enjoy the photo inspiration, and if you can come by the Open House this weekend, you'll get to experience it first hand.

And here's some fun posts from last week:

Fabulous French Finds from Judy at French Laundry.
Can I just say, she has some of the most lovely things I've seen.

Amber from Junkaholics Unanimous 
shared her antique booth favorite finds.
these babies are adorable, not toooo creepy...

Our gal Courtney from French Country Cottage
 has THE most amazing set of vintage Italian furniture. 
you have to go by and visit to get the details.

Cindy from Blessings by Cindy created this adorable lamp shade
made with fabric rosettes, so sweet!

Becky from Buckets of Burlap, who always knows how to create
some vintage inspiration, shares a new on line shop.

And from Sheila at Swirly Girl Dreams and Decor
she must have been reading my mind! Love all her flowering junk!

Robin's Vintage Suitcase

Short of you being here in person, there is just no way to share how beautiful this shop really is. When you step inside the door you are transported to a place of unique style and elegance. You may remember last Fall I shared several posts of Robin's Fall and Christmas Open House, which at that time was being held temporarily in the carriage house on her wonderful turn of the century estate.

Robin is now opening her new year round shopping venue, which is just a block away from her property, Humbolt Place, here in Springfield. Three areas in one store,  The Vintage Suitcase most resembles her Carriage House venue; then a new area, The Garden District that has the flavor of an Old World Conservatory. (I'll share this part of the shop tomorrow)  The Vintage Veranda is an elegant French furnished party room that can be rented for parties, showers, and wedding rehearsal dinners. (photos coming this weekend)

These are just a few photos to invite you to the Grand Opening taking place this weekend. Hope you can come and be a part of the excitement. Join Robin for hors d'oeuvres, dessert, and a toast to the new shops!
