The Shop Around The Corner

Happy December!


I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving. Here’s a peek at mine just in case you missed it My Thanksgiving and now here we are at the beginning of the last month of the year. Wow…

I guess you could say it has sort of been a tradition of mine to go window shopping after the Thanksgiving holiday.


When I lived in SoCal I’d often visit and peruse the shops at Fashion Island Newport Beach, South Coast Plaza, and other little fun boutiques I discovered along the way. Sometimes I’d drive up to Lake Arrowhead and experience the cooler wintry like weather. The shops would be so festive and fabulously decorated. Window shopping has always been a great spirit lifter for me as you can tell by the above photo which btw was taken back in 2013 at Neiman Marcus. two rooms filled with MacKenzie Childs Home decor! talk about eye candy No doubt I will always have that city gal in me  just a little and be on the look~out for those shops that inspire with their beauty.   Simply Cottage and The Laurel are two recent shops I’ve posted about.


Today I’d like to share a couple of other shops that might help inspire your own inner creative self. No worries you won’t be spending a thing. We are only getting spirit lifted.


Come and take a peek with me. Katrina Kathleen’s  read more about Katrina Kathleens   Home Decor is located in Coos Bay.







Here you will see an abundance of decor items, along with a wonderful collection of women’s accessories, including jewelry, handbags, and clothing.


Another fun shop is called Truffles yes as in yummy this shop is conveniently located within walking distance from Katrinas.




Whether you need to find that perfect gift item, or just enjoy a little window shopping like me You won’t be disappointed. Downsizing, and living a simplified life in a sweet little cottage by the sea doesn’t mean I’m crazy I still don’t enjoy the luxury of eye candy.  Quite the contrary I have found it’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon with friends & get caught up in the spirit of the season. So what are ya waiting for! Go grab that friend don’t forget the peppermint mocha & experience the magic of this special time of year.

Because sadly my friend it will be over before we know it.

Wishing you ALL the blessings of the Season.

 And naturally the best eye candy window is really just around the corner of my sweet cottage. Click below for some real magic.
