I Went to Barbara's House!

Well, okay.  Not her house but her store, Treasures from the Heart.  Barbara lives in Eugene, OR about a 6 hour drive for me.  I stop to see her on my way to visit my daughter in Lincoln City, OR.  We had such a wonderful time visiting and drinking tea.  I also had a great time shopping!

Here is one of my favorite places in her lovely store.
Her valentine display is delightful!  And what the heck was I thinking not buying that darling cart with the scrolly wheels?
Her tea time display is beautiful.
This is one of my favorite corners.  I always find something tucked away here that I can't live without!  This time it was two old books.
Another favorite spot. Love this space!  There are two very cool old ledgers right behind the adding machine tucked between the wooden mirror and the clock that were very tempting.
A suitcase of treasures!
And here, by far, is the heart and soul of the shop.
She is such a delight!  I just love her!
Barbara, thank you so much for the visit and the fellowship!  And for patiently teaching me how to make your lace flowers.  Very fun!
 I came home with old books, two clocks, sewing notions, baby shoe bookends, a glass cake cover, a necklace, some of Barb's handmade little booklets to keep on hand as thank you gifts along with some of her altered bottles, and the list goes on.
And I can't believe I'm seriously thinking about that cart!
I may be calling you soon Barb.  :)

Hi Karen,
Guess what? I'm going to see her tomorrow! I live in Lebanon so it is just about an hour drive to her shop! This will be the second time I've been there. But I'm bringing my daughter this time and this will be her first. I can't wait! She has some wonderful things in her shop and she is very sweet!
Love the pictures you took!
Have a great day!
