Shopping, and some cute stuff.

I stopped in to see the shop where I used to have my booth "Seashells and Lavender".
There's a new owner.
The place looks amazing!
Booths have been revamped, and filled with items that are a little more on trend with today's decorating styles.

The previous owner had built up a good business over the years, and the new owner has added her own style to it.
The women have been able to merge their talents into a great place for people in the area to shop, as well as attracting tourists that come from out of town to shop, as well.

The new owner put together this cute tool belt.
She painted it white, and added the brushes, strap, pussy willows, and faux roses.
I love the shabby chic element she's added with the strap, and painting it white.

This angel was another find.
I like that  it's metal.
The wings match another set of wings that I have in the living room.

I was happy to find this sweet child's apron to add to the other vintage aprons that I collect.
My granddaughter's will be able to use it when they come up to visit.
If you are ever in the Houghton Lake area, you might like to stop at Morning Glory Mercantile on M-55. You will be pleasantly surprised.
I will be away for a few days; taking care of the kiddos.
Have a great weekend!


  1. Hi, It's nice when a nice shop gets a bit of a lift and make over! I'm sure the vendors and clients will be pleased with the results! I love the angle, so unique! Sweet apron too! Have a wonderful weekend with the kids! Blessings, Cindy

  2. Debbie...I have 2 of those Angels. One is in soft brown and the other one is silver. The shop pictures are bad that it is so far away from me.

  3. What a fun place to shop, Debbie! The vintage apron is so sweet. Have fun with the kiddos this weekend!

  4. Debbie,
