Poor Mother Nature is getting such a bad rap today with that beautiful dumping of white stuff! I thought this display of Spring delights at Kowalski's would make you feel a little better.

Scenes from a quilt shop!

There's nothing I like better than a quilt shop that looks charming before you even come up the sidewalk, and that's how it was when I visited Thimble Cottage in Rapid City SD. One fun thing after another to look at! I had to laugh at how we found it. We were sitting at a corner waiting for the light to change ... discussing if we should stop for gas at the station in the next block. I turned my head to the right and shouted "Drop me off here!" Even without seeing the sign, I knew it was a quilt shop!

When you walk in the door your eye goes immediately from the floor to the third floor ceiling because of an open entry. Somehow, they decorate it all ... they must have huge ladders!

The quilt shop is the home to Pearl Louise Designs so there are lots and lots of finished samples around the store. I'm a sucker for seasonal things so I bought this group!

So many of the displays included charming additions. They just make you smile to see them.

Lots of rooms and they each held something different. They even had a kitchen with a breakfast bar!

So much to look at and take in. I left a little bit poorer. But that's ok cuz it was fun!! And of course ... if you visit the quilt shop, you have to plan some time to visit the boys on the hill!
