Vintage Eye Candy

Hey my friends!
We took a weekend trip to Dallas for our kids to spend some Christmas money :)

My favorite part of the trip is stopping in Canton at First Monday Trade Days.
Mainly, to shop at  Laurie Anna's Vintage Home.
Take a look at her shoppe.

My whole family loves to visit, to see all the "old stuff" she has.

Not only is her shoppe gorgeous and full of vintage beauty,
she is an angel herself.

You know how you meet someone, and right off the bat you
wish you could spend REAL time with them.
That's how I feel when I visit.

Laurie Anna has a gift for timeless design and creative style.
Her shoppe is overflowing with eye candy and incredible ideas for using
vintage pieces as home decor.

Of course, I could not leave without a few goodies,
which I will share with you later...

If you ever get the opportunity to shop with her,
you will leave with such inspiration.
And by the words of another shopper heard that day:
"I just want to move, so I can decorate another house!"

It is an unbelievable experience, and she makes you feel right at home :)
However, for those of you far away, shop online HERE.
Thanks, Laurie Anna, for such a fun day :) 

I am joining Kathleen for White Wednesday,
go check out all the other beautiful whites!

I hope you are having a great week!

Oh how I would love to spend a couple of hours shopping in that store. Everythink looks so pretty.

I have got to find a store like that near me! Thanks so much for the link, I'll be sure to visit.

It's Just Me said...

Hi Becky,

I LOVE Laurie Anna's site. I would have such a hard time selling the beauties she has. Her style is amazing. You're a lucky girl to be able to shop at her shop in person instead of via internet like I have too : ( ... Thank you so much for sharing your trip with us ~

Amy Kinser said...

I would love to be able to go to her shop. what lovely things everywhere. My dad lives close to Dallas, so maybe someday I will make it that way. Thanks for sharing the gorgeous photos. Can't wait to see what you brought home and what you are going to do with it.

Cathy Cobblestone said...

You are so lucky to get to shop there!!!! And she had such nice things to say about you today too - and I'm certain and I know you deserved every single compliment. Beautiful picture of your family she had! Have a very blessed new year!

Michelle @Shellsshabbyshack said...

What a fun shop! I love her style! It would be hard to make it out of that store empty handed. Can't wait to see what you found!

Laura Sennot said...

I live in the Dallas area and go to Canton but have never heard of this store. Where is it in Canton?

michelle said...

I could spend all day on there just looking and looking and buying!! :)

Terry said...

I have been all over your blog, though it hard to read in the burlap areas, your blog is so cool and your decorating is outstanding and unique. I am a new follower! Terry

Thanks for joining my giveaway. I'm following you back. I'm so jealous...we were in Flower Mound over Thanksgiving and I couldn't make it to Laurie Anna's shop. I will live vicariously through your beautiful photos.
Have a wonderful week!

Dear Becky, what a
TREAT to hear from
you! I'm just now
crawling out from the
flu and getting back
to my e-mail and blogs.
I enjoyed wandering the
halls of your blog; your
pics are so lovely,
as are your thoughts.
I jotted down the bible
verse about JOY and
I cried a wee bit with
you about your sweet mom.
My mom is also "Grammy,"
and I cannot imagine my
live without her, even
though we live very far
apart. I'm going to take
a peek at Laurie Anna's
shop, now. {I must be
on the mend; I want to
shop again!} Sending you
belated new year greetings!
xx Suzanne

I just LOVE Shops like this... and I've often found the Proprietors are just as delightful to visit as their Shop. Thanks for sharing all this fab eye candy! Sounds like your kids weren't the only ones spending their Christmas money??? *wink* Dawn... The Bohemian
