Cottage Gatherings & Urban Nest

I still have several more posts of the show to go, that's what I get for taking over 300 pics and filling up 2 memory cards, but before I continue the posts I wanted to feature a shop we saw today. We had to go to La Grange Texas for business and stopped by Haley's shop, Cottage Gatherings. , is located at 201 W Travis St. La Grange, 979-966-0555. You probably have seen her shop at the Campbell Building in Warrenton Texas during Antiques Week and if you have adventured any to La Grange you may have see this shop. Yes, Deb this is the place to get Yellow Box shoes, but you already knew that, there were tons of them on the sidewalk (no not free, darn it, on sale I think). Anyways, I just loved the display area outside her shop. Here's what it looked like:

Cool bike!

Loved the pedestals that were outside, especially the one below with the chippy white and pink paint.

This was a cool idea to cover bookshelves with old book pages or sheet music.

Then, as we left her store I saw a sign that caught my eye and what a nice surprise to discover she has another shop just around the corner, Urban Nest, located at 136 W Colorado St. Here's the inside of this beautiful shop:

I absolutely love awnings and this was really cool one.

I immediately recognized this sign. I've seen it many times at my friend's house and now it has a new home.

Another cool bike.

On our way home we stopped at another place. I just loved the way all the suitcases were stacked up.

Tomorrow I have a special post to reveal what the Junk Sistas Unite button on my side bar means. If you can't wait, check out Amy's post.


  1. You guessed it! That's where I always get my Warrenton souvenir, my yellow boxes! I think she is one of the most beautiful women I have ever laid eyes on and her sense of style is over the top unique. Love it!

  2. Love the sign! And the bike..... What button?

  3. Theresa, those two bicycles are fabulous! In my favourite colours too!

  4. Love what you're doing for Bella! Hugs.

  11. Oh man. oh man. You need to find a publisher, compile your never-ending list of excellent places and SELL IT TO EVERYONE. You'd make a load and we'd all be in Texas shopping!
