The shop carries lots of modern fabrics by designers such as Heather Bailey, Joel Dewberry, and Anna Maria Horner as well as modern-style patterns, notions, buttons, and ribbons.
The back of the shop is a yarn lover's delight with tons of pretties. I'm not a knitter, so I just admired the scenery!
In my continuing quest to stay organized, I am a sucker for pretty notebooks, and this shop had plenty of them. They also sold cute bags in matching motfis.
I was delighted by their selection of papers—unusual ones that I hadn't seen before at my local Archiver's store. I found the most adorable cat paper and another Japanese-style one with cherry blossoms.
They had some really fun new rubber stamps, including this cute line by Ruby Violet. A couple packages came home with me, though I just realized they aren't the ones pictured here.
This vivid green color leading to the second floor is also popular with customers seeking to bring the spirit of the outdoors inside. I think it would be a great shade for a sunroom or conservatory. I'm not lucky enough to have one of those but perhaps someday...
Melon and citrine seemed to be the colors du jour. Every corner of the shop seemed to have some sort of accent in those colors—or shades of them.
Here they are again (only the green is slightly darker) on this charming wall shelf.
I love the green and melon combo in this inviting vignette.
Doesn't this cozy corner look inviting? I was tempted to sit down and relax.
For years, I loved going to Curious Sofa when I was in KC. It was one of my favorite shops and then it closed its storefront a couple years ago. As I was walking through a local antique mall, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the owner had opened a new booth there.
In the same antique mall, I came upon these cute vintage pie birds. Does anyone else just love these things? My mother-in-law got me hooked on them about 13 years ago. These didn't go home with me but they were fun to see.
Last but not least, I must share a couple fun owl finds from my trip. This wooly owl is perched on an old rusty bedspring. I found the blue-and-tan wool fat quarter in the same antiques shop as the owl.
At another shop, I found these cute owl ear buds and a trio of owl pouches. The larger one is designed for an iPad or electronic reader—neither of which I have or really need at this point in my life, though my techie husband keeps trying to get me to buy an iPad. I'm sure I can find another use for the larger pouch.
