Found at Taken For Granite


Taken For Granite is always one of our favorite shops to visit.
The owner, Michele always finds the most interesting vintage items and mixes them with beautiful gifts and home decor.
 Everywhere you look, there is something to find delight in .




Michele is so talented at display
 and creating inspirational vignettes.
Situated so close to the Sound and especially this time of year...
 ...the store has a very light and airy, beachy theme.




Beautiful and unique clothes, purses and jewelry...
soaps, toiletries and even sweet baby items...
...one of a kind gifts...
...vintage treasures...














OK...I was really taken with this inspirational idea.
You know how I love vintage colored bottles!











dreamy...















Paula found this fun piano themed ribbon...













I know this post was really long...
...but there was so much to share with you!
And, there is so much more!


Taken for Granite

Paula and I found something here we couldn't resist...
but...
I have to save something for the next post!


Quick trip...
On my way to Florida to drive with Dad back north.
I will try to post more from the road ...


So far, so good?
