We are on Fall Break! Yah hoo, I can't tell you how excited we are. We are on a year-round school schedule. It's hard to start school at the end of July, but it pays off when we have a 2 1/2 week fall, Christmas and spring break. I took the kids to see my sister in Iowa. She is very ill and I knew that my teenagers would be bored within a heartbeat so I decided to add an excursion on to our trip. My son has drumline camp this week, so I made our reservations for last weekend. I was trying to work out so many details and I overlooked an important competition date for him. He was so disappointed. We talked about it as a family and decided to work around his competition. I lost our three one-way tickets into Missouri and had to rework everything, but it all worked out in the end. We flew into Kansas City. I had a few spots on my list. Curious Sofa, Nell Hills and Urban Arts and Crafts.
Curious Sofa's Halloween decor was amazing!

We have been wanted to change our sofas in both the living room and family room and I wished I could fit a few of these in my suitcases.

Somehow, I don't think my husband would think this one is as cute as I do!

I have a thing for tin ceilings. I remember my sweet Mama pointing one out to me over twenty years ago before they were in. She loved them too.

Taylor found a few things for her bedroom. We are revamping it for her birthday. It will be black and white damask, chandeliers and hot pink.
Nell Hill's was amazing. Last time we were here, three years ago, we visited the original store in Atchison, Kansas. Loved this new store too.
I think my husband would approve of this sofa. Unfortunately, it wouldn't fit in my suitcase either!

I "Love" this pillow and had to bring it home with me.
We also stopped in at Urban Arts and Crafts. I found a few little trinkets. As we were leaving Nell Hill's and driving over to Urban Arts and Crafts I noticed this beautiful home. I mentioned it to the employee and she said it is the home of the owner of the shopping center and suggested that we drive through Briarcliff to see the beautiful homes. By this time, my son had about had it. Both the kids were exceptionally good on our little get away.

Thank you for the mention and the great pics too. Your friends can also buy those little paper chandeliers on our online store. Happy Fall!

What a dreamy place! Too bad the sofas couldn't fit in your luggage, tee,hee!
