Last Friday we hit the road and drove down to St. Louis. Jane drove myself, my Mom, and our friend Liz.....we stopped at antique shops along the way (a four hour trip turned into eight!). Our final destination was Red Lead Paperworks, which as you may know is just my idea of heaven!!!
Above and below are pictures from their website. I think you can get an idea from this picture of their store just how much inspiration there is! Whenever we go to Red Lead we spend the entire time the store is open just walking around and around soaking it all in. Chris and Sharon are always such gracious gals and let us bug them all day.
We were able to stay in a Hilton Hotel thanks to Jane's husband's business trip points. It was totally luxurious! We all had a great time, relaxing, shopping, and laughing!
The only problem was that I did not take my camera out of my purse. I was too busy "being in the moment." We struck vintage ephemera gold at all of the antique shops we stopped in.
I included my favorite finds in this post.
This teen book is hysterical with lots of ideas about fashion and boys, boys, boys.
We felt very lucky to have three days to just do what we wanted and go where we wanted to go. It was fab!
