A Happy Surprise

  1. ashlina says:

    oooh so lovely! looks like a fun place to spend a friday 🙂

  2. Jeannine @ Small and Chic says:

    I NEVER imagined I'd see a trellis fabric in a Very Bradley! Wow. They've really modernized a few of their lines, too. I'm impressed.

    Or maybe the south is really rubbing off on me.

    I had the same first impression of VB, but it has grown on me over the years. They've gotten a littler more girly and trendy with the patterns, and I really really really really want one of the duffle bags. Haven't been in a store yet – I get my stuff from the little local shop, but I'd love to see inside a store. It looks amazing.

  4. Dobbygirl says:

    Fabulous! I thought the same thing (old lady) and then once the Java Blue pattern was introduced a few years ago, things have turned around and I hopped on board. I've cooled off a bit too, but I still appreciate! Thank you for the photos, great store!!!

  5. Kelly Green says:

    wow – no wonder you stopped! Love it all – great spying too, well done! KG

    I've never been inside their shops, though I too have just sort of come around to the Vera Bradely look, or back around. (That and Pierre Deux bags were huge when I was in middle school.) Preppy chic now, but quite farty for a while there. Or are we just getting farty? Yikes.

    I love the whole mix of colorful botanicals with the Chaing Mai Dragon. I'm really digging that bright green French check on the walls! Just reminded me of a post I started and filed away…

    lol on the weird angles, I know exactly how you feel!! 🙂

    Haven't even heard of the brand, but that's probably since I'm waaay up North…

    Am relaunchind the blog tomorrow, so you have to stop by and let me know what you think!!

    have a fabulous Saturday!!

    Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you will not have a leg to stand on. ....................................................

    That is a lot going on but I love it. Vera Bradley does have some great patterns!


    I can never get enough of that Chiang Mai print and especially in that blue!

  11. Love Where You LIve says:

    I love going out and stumbling on a "surprise." And, boy, are you good with the iphone or what!!

  12. Rachel says:

    This store looks so cool!! I love the Chaing Mai dragon on the walls – and that huge overscaled check is fun too.

    I've only ever seen Vera Bradley things carried at boutiques around here, so thanks for sharing pics from the store!

    I would love one of those big weekend bags, I find "Vera's" prints so cheery! Love your photos.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
