VIF: Raised in Cotton

We've just returned from a fun 4 days in Kansas City--lots of eating and lots of shopping--and I came back with a mess of photos, new shoes and tops and a pair of capris, and a whole head full of inspiration. Ryan was sweet enough to venture off the highway on the way home today so I could visit Raised in Cotton, a shop I've read about in magazines and on Carol's blog, and it was quite a treat.

I bought a few lovely things, but I'm kind of wishing I'd also bought these sweet Nest blocks and the beauty shop sign...

Our visit left me imagining all sorts of possibilities for the treasures I bought there at the shop and at a few other places in KC, and the nice lady working there gave me some info for other interesting shops and events nearby that I'll have to make time for on another trip. I hope that tomorrow between sleeping in (it's supposed to be rainy in the morning--prime lazy conditions) and doing mounds and mounds of laundry I'll feel some "vintage inspiration" and find homes for all my new treasures...

I covet the "rest" blocks and that grey/red house is darling.

Thanks for sharing!

Oh I'd love to go to Carol's store. There are so many places in and around KC. We just don't get that direction since we usually head to ST.Louis instead. Sounds like you had a great time. Have a great weekend!
hugs,
Debra
