Friday again! Hope your week was a calm one. The older I get, the faster time flies and this past week really flew. Joining Amy at Love Made My Home for Five On Friday again this week...
Love this newly opened shop in McKinney called Home.ol.o.gy, which already has their shop decorated for Christmas.
Love is not the right word...I think smitten works better. Just take a look.
ONE: The flat metal reindeer on the wreaths outside the store's door had me at hello. Smitten! Luckily for me, the shop was closed when I walked by last night on my way to an evening paint class or I would be dead broke today.
The entryway is appealing all by itself. I wish I had gotten a better picture of the whole entry, but it was late and getting dark and my class was about to start.
TWO: Have you ever seen a sweeter sign? Smitten! I didn't mind being told the store was closed in this way. I loved the contrast between the dark wood doorway, the black and white tiled floor, and the straight up and down sign.
The contrast with the fancy chandelier and the dark wood was very, very appealing.
FOUR: When I looked to see the store hours on the window, I fell for all the Christmas decor inside. The sparkly reindeer and the large white candle holders in this window made me want to come back real soon.
The class I was headed to was a painting class for Amy Howard's paint and finishes.
The large candle holder painted an off white probably was my inspiration for choosing a white-ish paint called Linen for my sample board (a wooden tile) in last night's class.
I painted the wooden tile linen with a little dark wax to age it. I think I will be attacking everything in the house with my new brush and linen paint!
FIVE: I peeked in every window of the shop before I hurried to my class. I tried to get the best photos I could. Everything was so pretty and I wanted to remember it all. Amy Howard has a taupe color similar to the shade on this large candle holder below. I might just have to paint some things with that color too. Smitten once again!
Thanks for dropping by!
