BFF Linda and I just went to visit Embellish, designer Kathy McCabe's scrumptious new shop. Remember, Kindred Spirit's, we visited Kathy's other establishment a short while back.It was raining cats and dogs the day we went, so I regret to inform you I did not get a shot of the storefront. I have not yet figured out how to hold an umbrella and snap a photo, but trust me when I tell you it has the most delightful black awning beckoning one and all to sample its charm. Words escape me to adequately describe Embellish. It is equal parts gift, floral and home decor shop.
Upon entering the shop there are the sweetest treasures...darling baby (or grandbaby) clothes, jewelry and little happies perfect for the special sweetie pies in your life.

I'm told there are plans for custom floral designs with a fridge stocked full of fresh flowers. Love it!

And love this dutch door peeking out into the side courtyard.

Twin beds absolutely dripping in Kathy's signature bedding.

I thought I'd died and gone to guestroom heaven!

Look at the darling ottoman sitting between the beds. Too cute!

Hi Lisa, :)
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and your kindness. You gave me an award right off the bat. Thank you! You are wonderful to think of me to pass it too and I really appreciate it so much. It's the precious Pink ladybug right? I will display it proudly and add your name to it my friend.

I wanted to let you know I did add your button along with a few other buttons and discovered they were slowing down my blog from opening in a timely manner.
You are on my blogroll of favorites and I am a faithful follower as well. Please know you are always welcomed to do the same at mine.

This shop is just exquisite. I would absolutely adore shopping here and feel like a queen. It's so elegant yet welcoming. Very nice.
Thank you for sharing the experience with us. The photos are beautiful.

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend.
~Warmly, Melissa :)

PS Your music is the best I have heard in the blogworld. So soothing.

You are so sweet and your blog definitely reflects your kindness. I am so glad I discovered your blog. Thank you so much again and I will post on my next post. Just let me know if the lady bug is the one. :) I want to link back to you. Also, I have put your button on my blog as well. :) Have a great weekend!!
