Back To That Little Town on the River...............
It was the day after Thanksgiving and our guests wanted to go shopping and their wish was to avoid the malls. Not wanting to be selfish and knowing exactly where I would like to take them, I made the suggestion and their response was positive!! So after a leisurely breakfast fireside, we were off to Geneva, Illinois, to one of my favorite shops ever, SCENTIMENTAL GARDENS and a new shop called 610 HOME. The gentleman who told me about this new shop is quite the creative soul himself and knows good from bad!! So his endorsement alone held great merit! He promised me I would love it! So, off we headed to that little mill town on the Fox River. We pulled up, parked and I just knew we were in for a great time!!!
As they say, the outside usually tells the story of what may be inside.........it looked like it was going to be a treat. I held the door for my friends and all the while tried to keep my calm......................WOW! If my friends were going to shop fast, I knew I was going to be in trouble. It was fabulous!
Vintage sofas had been recovered in linen fabrics of all textures and colors. Pillows of all shapes and sizes were scattered throughout, along with holiday candles and accessories perfect for the season.
Extra large bird posters were everywhere......................and the images so endearing. These fine feathered
friends would definitely make a statement over a commode, a table or an over sized wall looking for the attention they deserve! The lighting.......check out the macrame fixture overhead.
it was a feast for the senses and the intrigue, beyond belief. The "mix" was always a part of
The Equestrian would find themselves very "at home" here.
Lots of horse figures, carvings and silver trophies.
More acquisitions of good taste and more wonderful bird decor.................statements you will love to have in your home. Vintage plates, domes galore (and can we have too many? ????? well, yes probably), marble carved busts and lighting for just about every taste and style.
AND MORE ACCESSORIES!
