Hello Sweet Ladies......
Our family tries to go to Late Night ever year. We love the excitement that KU does to get all the fans all excited for the season. The night was sooooo fun. While the kids all stand in line my honey Phil takes me down town shopping. I have 4 favorite stores. Now I have 5......I will tell you about the 5th one tomorrow. So my first stop is always the Winfield House. We drove up to the backside where we always park. It was EMPTY! Oh NO! I was so sad. Phil said there is a sign so he went to read it. They had moved. Now I couldn't imagine how another shop could be as neat as the one they had always been in for years. Oh my.........was I wrong.
Now first before I tell you about the store. We have to park a little ways from the store. Everyone and their brother was in Lawrence this weekend! I get out and start to walk and my Phil is just a little ways behind me. I notice three young men coming our way. My honey said, "Hi Guys, Can't wait to see you tonight. They are right by me and I look up to Marcus Morris, Elijah Johnson, Tyshawn Taylor who are three of the KU basketball players. Now I thought our girls are going to freak! They pray for the KU guys and they will ask if we got pictures. It was a fun time for my Phil. The young men spent some time talking to him........not me........I head straight for the store. This is what I saw..............
This is one of my favorite stores!!!!! The people are so
friendly. My Phil and the owners always talk about hunting.......good thing..........keeps him busy........and I can walk around and dream. I don't buy that much..........but I just love their style........and how they put the store together! BEAUTIFUL to the eye! They have a new designer....... Christine Brady........she will come and help those of you who live up in the area.... decorate your HOME. She is really a sweetie! You can tell her I said so!
The address is 647 Mass. St. Lawrence KS 66044

Look them up.......you won't be disappointed.
This is what you would see....... if you walked through the front door.
I make a beeline to the dishes!!!!!!! I just love the bowls!
The dishes are my favorite spot!!!!!!!!!! I have always loved the bowls by Signature. Well really everything they make. There are three sizes in the colors Cranberry Red, Green, Mustard and Creamy White. I am not sure if that is what the colors are called, but that is what I would call them. As you can see they have everything. Dinner Plates, Salad Plates, Cups, Pitchers, Salt and Pepper Sakers, Canisters, Teapots.......everything! They are my favorite!!!!!! I only have the bowls..........would love some other pieces some day! I use mine a lot for the holidays!!!!
Our Momma Jo, (my Phil's Momma) would have loved these plates. She is with Jesus.....but whenever we see a cardinal........we think of her! The red plate is the large Signature plate. See the beautiful design?
Ooooo another bed! Look at this.......... beautiful..........love the layering! They do it perfectly!
Thought these were cute blocks! See the little birdie with the hat?
I bought a little bundle of these little berry balls. I thought they were adorable. Not sure what I will do with them.......but at least I will have them! I will show you when I do find something!
Look at those RED QUILTS..........they have matching sheets and pillow shams. Oh my.......... if I had lots of money!
Thought the Let It Snow was so cute up on the top! And you can see all the beddings. Plain one color quilts to match..........BEAUTIMUS!!!!!!! I know that is not a word......but I like it! Probably isn't spelled right either. Oh well.
Another BED! RED!!!!!!!! My kind of color! Isn't that so pretty? Snowflake pillow!
Pretty? I really like trees!
They have a lot more room at their new place and had bedroom sets through out the store.......LOVELY! Cute ideas on how to decorate I think. They even had couch and chairs.......tables all through out the store. So pretty!
As some of you know I have a Winter Snowman Party for my Grandchildren every year during the CHRISTmas break. I bought the iceskating plate. They will love it..........I always cover the plates with goodies and then they have to guess what is underneath! My Momma always played that game with my siblings and myself. Memories.......love em!
This said, "I will Honor CHRISTmas in my heart.....and try to Keep it all the Year!I want to Honor Jesus Allllllllll Year long also!
Sooooooo I hope you liked my first post about our trip. It was so restful for our family! I don't know that we needed it.......but it was a gift..........from our Heavenly Father and we loved it!
