The beautiful picturesque seashore community of Stony Creek, Ct.
has it’s quiet charm in the Winter. To me the Winter is the best time to get away and relax.
Well unfortunately I don’t own a cottage at the beach but I can still
come down here in the winter and enjoy it.
Just a couple of days before New Years Evi and Ebbie had
planned on coming down to visit Paula but Evi having had back problems wasn’t sure
she’d be able to keep to her plans.
Early in the morning I got the good news from Paula that
Evi was on her way.
Woo Hoo and guess what we did????
Shopped of course.
We first stopped off at Deanna’s at Gather but I spent more time talking then taking pictures.
That doesn’t sound like me? haha
I usually do both pretty well….even my clicking away doesn’t get in the way of my talking :)
I did manage to find the cutest family of sheep.
Yes another flock!
I promise I’ll show some pictures of Deanna’s shop soon.
Like I said before, we were in Stony Creek and our real visit was to go to
One of the most beautiful shops in the area.
Michelle has a knack for display and an amazing sense of style.
As soon as we stepped into the shop we were greeted by this incredibly gorgeous mannequin
and Michelle who was busy
rearranging the store. I still bent her ear a little….sorry Michelle!
You know….. shop talk!
We discussed what we thought did well for Christmas and what
we were surprised didn’t. You just never know? but we both agreed
we had a good season over all.
The space has such an open feel and the natural lighting even on a cloudy
day is still cheerful and bright.
The shop has the most amazing clothes but I didn’t have enough time to
look so I’ll need to bring George and torture him while I try things on.
No really he never complains and actually likes shopping with me.
By the counter they had their table of 50% Christmas items.
Ebbie shopping for a Valentines gift for Evi……
The table with it’s blue-green paint really caught my eye.
Original paint I was told.
Shoppers sure have an array of jewelry to pick from. Maybe you could leave a hint
with your significant other that you’ve found the perfect gift for Valentines Day here.
Or this incredible meshed bag.
The shop is forever changing but whatever season it is, it always reflects
with beauty, nature, creativity and a touch of antiquity.
If you’re in the area take the time to stop
into Taken for Granite.
I know you’ll find just the perfect gift for someone special
or for yourself.
Hope you enjoyed the tour.
