Well I have been chipping away at my 19 remaining vacation days. They are the kind that you use or lose if they are not taken by the end of the year. So since Veteran's Day on Friday was a bank holiday I took the Thursday before it and also Monday off.
Thursday I went to Cambridge with some friends. More about that later.
Monday I decided to go to Concord. My friend Beth works at one of my all time favorite shops in Concord, Nesting on Main so I headed there. She works Mondays and Tuesdays, the days I never get to go there so since I had Monday off I thought I would visit her. Of course, she had the day off. Figures!
Anway, I had a lovely time all by myself just browsing around the shop and talking to Melissa, one of the partners at Nesting. She let me take photos to my heart's content!
The ladies at Nesting have such taste and a knack for display and merchandising. The shop is such a visual delight. Isn't this box cool?
A lovely display of religious items. A very popular theme nowadays.
Stunning glassware. Ooh, that would look lovely in a holiday tablescape! They look nice and heavy too!
I thought this lampshade was so sweet! It had such a warm glow. Such a great item for Fall.
I have to say this display was my favorite. So shiny and just gorgeous. Love it all!
Grain sack tea towel. You know I bought one. Anything that says cafe and chocolat is a favorite of mine. I think I will hang mine near the tea cups over the new black chest in the kitchen.
A pretty Fall display.
And in close up.
If you are in the Concord area, you must visit Nesting on Main. Word has it their displays for Christmas are going to be spectacular! They close down the three days before Thanksgiving, just to decorate!
