Shop Vignettes

When we are away I like staying connected to the shops by way of images the WK family sends me via texts or e-mails. It is a fun way to see what new product has arrived as well as check any displays that have been refreshed. I might not be there in-person but the shops are never far from my heart. Here are some shots sent to me this Hawthorne visit.



 

 

Pink & Green Plaid Window Refresh

Well, we wanted to make absolute sure we got the most out of our pink & green plaid windows. I think we did! A final refresh for upcoming Mother’s Day in May the inspiration. For Summer, we move into beach-y blues. But for now, enjoying these preppy versions every moment we can. My test, when the Lyft driver pulls up to drop me off in the morning and I get out of the car, Bailey in tow, and my eyes go right to the windows. These still make me smile. Happy Wednesday everyone!



 

 

Refreshed Plaid Windows

The pink & green plaid windows are here to stay for awhile as I am liking them so darn much. Valentine’s Day came and went in a snowy haze in my mind, and also reality, blur. In went an ode to many of my favorite things above, and to birds and flowers below. These will stay up until Mother’s Day windows take over, but I think those will have a preppy spin to them, as well. Fun to play with all this vibrant color on these chilly days…



 

 

Valentine Gifts Galore at WK

Yesterday was one of our first ‘real’ full days of the shops being open the whole day in more than a week. The snow did a number on retail for Valentine’s Day to be sure. That said, we are brimming with all sorts of sweet treats for everyone on your list. Our Open House was cancelled on Saturday so bubbly & cider will be poured tomorrow in honor of the day. Our card baskets are bursting with lovely heart filled options. We will be wrap, wrap, wrapping away as I like to say. Hope to see you in the next few days! X, T

Sometimes all you need is one magnificent bloom.



 

 

A Day of Display at the Market Shop

Last month, I received a lovely e-mail from a gentleman who had a family antique table he was looking to sell. Above said table! He was introduced to me by his Aunt, a blog reader from back East. The table could not be more perfect in the shop, feeling instantly like it had been there forever. The arrival of it spurred a full day of display making room, and once it arrived, filling it with all sorts of WK goodies. Valentine’s Day was also on our minds, so the front table received a little refresh. As well as all sorts of other displays that were looking a little ragged from the crazy busy holiday season. By the end of the day, everything was feeling fresh and looking sparkly again.



 

 

Pink & Green Windows

Our windows got a big refresh at the end of last week. Still wanting to stick with the plaid we used for the Holidays, the red became vibrant pink. Pink & green has always been a preppy favorite of mine, and these have that in spades. Heather painstakingly painted the vintage brown wooden chairs we have had forever to fit right in to each vignette. The chairs pull the whole color story together. Then works by Hugo Guinness and Jeanne McKay Hartmann were hung that got the windows started. Then it becomes many walks around the shop to see what catches our eye. A sort of moving puzzle. Green gourd lamps and lots of Livia Cetti paper geraniums and we were off and running. Oh, and I almost forgot, pink heart shaped balloons!



 

 

A Valentine Table

And just like that, any remaining Holiday goods go away and Valentine appears. Today the windows get a re-do. The plaid red & green becomes pink & green. My preppy is showing again! Things are looking quite pink and red around here. Always fun, a few non-stop display days to give everything a refresh. Rainy outside but sunny inside. Happy Thursday everyone!



 

 

Ted’s Tip No. 183

Massing one ‘like’ object with others instantly creates a stylish collection. Grouped together they can also create a piece/work of art.



 

 

Ted’s Tip No. 182

Add a platter to your front entry hall table or living room side table. Then mix in things from the season. It will be a visual delight for guests as well as for you.
