Let's go shop at 'Grumbles House'!

I had what I considered a 'free day' last week 
so I drove over to Dunnellon to shop at Grumbles House.

 

(it looks like I 'photoshopped' the cloud in! lol)
It's always fun to go in the Spring when they have pretty plants out in front and back.

 

 Everything is so healthy and lush!

 

Let's walk down the sidewalk and see what's new.

 

And turn into one of the little paths to look at the plants.

 

OK...OK...let's go inside now!

 

Just one peek inside the door because I can't wait to get back outside.

 

It was a beautiful day to wander around outside.

 

And I always like to look up!

 

And into the upper windows!

 

But of course I have to admit to buying a few small items. They have new items and also a nice variety of handmade things and antiques. It's just fun to LOOK! I actually spent less than $10 total.

 

Isn't this the cutest little owl teapot you've ever seen? I got a small bar of soap and a doll size tea cup. 


It was a beautiful day! And just as I opened the car door to leave, I turned for one last photo.

 

I'm joining Talk of the Town HERE and

Don't you love quaint shops like this?

Ohhh the owl teapot and the darling little cup - just perfect. I spotted a few things in that shop that I'd like to have too - so many pretty things for just a quick peek inside. And the plants are wonderful - I love a wander through the plants in spring - so many fun ideas. What a grand place for a free day. Such a pretty day. Happy wondering my friend. I'm trying to catch up on blog reading.
