Small Town Girls Go To The Big City!

January is the perfect time to go to the Seattle Gift Show.
Get out of town, eat out, shop, dream, plan...

Last weekend, Jon, Kristen, Gabby, and I went to Seattle and did just that.

Kristen and I checked out the new design trends and began to plan the Spring Open House. We are excited to start working on light and bright designs for spring and summer along with lots of plants and flowers for outdoor living.

There are so many wonderfully fun shopping districts to check out! Here is Watson Kennedy, located in a courtyard close to Pike Place Market - love the black and white awnings.

There's also a great antique store in the area that can take hours to explore - watch out for the stuffed rattlesnake. I have a thing for old script, so this little framed ditty caught my eye.

We hit the Ballard District in time for the Sunday Farmer's Market and strolled through some great shops like Lucca, Cupcake Royale, and Damselfly. Check out this elaborate Valentine theme shop window!

Back at our Bellevue hotel, Gabrielle was crazy for the indoor pool.

Of course time went too fast and we had to leave more to explore another time. How 'bout you? Do you have a favorite store to recommend?
