Good morning! I did it....I mangaged to prepare a post for today. Yay! Above are photos of the shop I mentioned to you yesterday. I hope these images give you a feel about what visitors experience at Keepsakes. The outside appearance is very deceiving with it's somewhat rustic exterior. Once you step in the door, it's a very different story. Eye candy galore! A mix of shabby chic with rustic European accents gives Keepsakes a homey and welcoming vibe. Not only does the owner run the shop completely by herself, she also finds time to paint murals on nearly every floor surface including the outside and inside of this charming shop. Her favorite mural is the "yellow brick road" (above) which graciously leads customers to a door leading to the public restroom. As you leave Keepsakes you are directed to choose a "blessing" (a teeny rolled up piece of paper with well-wishes for your day) from a basket that sits on the counter. To top it all off, they have a small bistro offering coffee, tea, chocolate, and other delectable treats!
