I hope you all had a grand Easter weekend. I sure did. The fun started on Friday with a play date with friend Caroline. We decided to visit The Curious Nest, a gem of a shop located just north of Univesity Village in Seattle.
Here’s owner Andrea working on some of her enchanting jewelry while tending shop, and being so warm and welcoming to all of her customers. Her handsome French husband, Laurent, was in France buying more French antiques!
Besides French antiques, The Curious Nest has a treasure trove of vintage found objects and local art.
An incredible collection of antique French mourning art. The largest portrait has been named Charlotte.
My favorite pieces are Andrea’s heavenly jewelry creations. This necklace just makes me swoon!
Caroline and I forced ourselves to say goodbye, and left with a few new souvenirs. It was on to U Village for lunch and some chatting. And literally – window shopping/ogling.
Anthropologie’s displays are always fetching.
A close-up and window shot of these great garlands of cork. I’m feeling more love and less fear with my camera. I’ll save the pictures of Ravenna Garden’s colorfun/colorful displays for tomorrow.
