Gathered #2

Last week I started a new blog post concept; well, it's just new for me. Many bloggers have a weekly post like this, and I really enjoyed taking a few minutes to share with all of you some of my weekly finds across Blogland and Pinterest. These are just a few of the pics and posts that caught my attention; Gathered here for you.

I ran into these elegant, but casual Thankful Plates from Crate and Barrel.
They have a whole line of glasses, napkins, etc.
I'm wondering if it would be possible to make these yourself,
or for that matter write any message or word using some sort of permanent gold marker.
It would have to be waterproof and non toxic, but oh so pretty!

Having a little Fall with lunch...

Even though we all haven't dived into Fall with our home decor yet,
(OK, some of us have dipped our toes into it)
retail has to be a step ahead of the season.

So when my mom, sis, and her sis-in-law headed out to lunch last week
we wanted to try out the new tea room at The Vintage Veranda.

And of course shopping the store, The Vintage Suitcase, where Robin's touches of Fall are seen everywhere.

Robin creates the most beautiful floral arrangements and wreathes...
even the wildlife want to get in on the display!

Gorgeous Autumnal tones throughout the store.

Even a hint of Halloween

Just in case you need a "hand" with some creepy decor...

Don't you just love this great black and white Buffalo Check?

And just look at this yummy lunch. A quarter of the quiche pie, with a cup of delicious cream of roasted pepper soup. Oh so Delicious!

Be watching for more information on the upcoming Fall Open House, which will be September 14-16, with a new outdoor dining area in back.

If you're anywhere near Springfield, in SW Missouri you'll want to come visit. It's definitely a "destination spot"!

A Visit to Robin's Vintage Suitcase

As one of my local sponsors, Robin's Vintage Suitcase, I'll be sharing photos of what's new in the store and giving updates on what's happening. Summer is in full swing with lots of bright colors in wreaths and accessories. The garden room is brimming over with outdoor finds for your summer porches and garden spots, and since vintage garden items are a favorite of mine it's always the first place I head.

Robin carries a wonderful mix of antiques, vintage, and one-of-a-kind finds. Also the latest in accessories from market. I'm so ready for sunflowers!!

This wonderful vintage French sofa 
is dressed in a heavy linen type burlap.

Robin's creativity is showcased at every turn,
 as in this fun lampshade tied with bits of this and that.

lot's of dishes and silver

There's a great selection of wonderful vintage furniture pieces, too.

Robin also creates beautiful wreaths and flower arrangements.

Fun pillows and accessories

Robin's party room, will soon become a Tea Room. The Vintage Veranda is in the planing process and is scheduled to open July 9. Stay tuned for more news on this. It's a gorgeous space with a tried and true caterer and chef at the helm. Personally, I can't wait!! Springfield is short on spots for a girl's lunch.

I found this great frenchy "cafe" pillow for my daughter in St. Louis, as I'll be heading up for a visit next week. More on what's happening next week...I have an adventure in the works!

more photos from Robin's Vintage Suitcase,
and a 3 Year Anniversary Give Away teaser coming soon,
