{Inspiration} Nature's Harvest


Have I got a feast for your eyes today! Recently I found a nursery near where my son goes to pre-school called Nature's Harvest. It looked so inviting from the outside, as you can see in these pictures, so I finally made a trip inside and it was literally like falling down the rabbit hole. This building, which isn't very big at all, was a feast for the eyes and the imagination. I just stood there taking in each section, moving to the next, filling up my creative well with each step. Come on inside!!

They had just decorated for Halloween and I was in heaven. Is that a contradiction in terms?!! Oh well....just LOOK at this decor:)This was probably my favorite thing in the whole store. Look at this ingenious place setting! How perfect for a sweet and sinister gathering!!

Hope you found it inspiring as well. Have a great weekend!

This is my first visit to your blog, and what a great one it was! Halloween is my favourite holiday, so I would have been breathing into a paper bag at the sight of all of that :) Absolutely fabulous and inspiring!

That is so fantastic! Thanks! I love finding treasures right off a normal path. Sometimes we travel far to find inspiration and sometimes it is very close. When close is matched with unexpected, I think that is the best.

I finally got my etsy store up...and your surprise will be on its way soon!

Nature's Harvest is just too cool! I would love to spend some time there, but I live in the southwest. Fall is the one season I miss since we moved from the east coast. You gave me a an enjoyable trip down the rabbit hole! Thank you!!
