Leola's , I could live there !

Yesterday my partners in crime sis Pam and buddy Billie had a girls' day out shopping. First we went to a craft fair in Nixa , Mo. Then on up to Springfield to get in a little Christmas shopping , the traffic and the crowds up there on a Saturday were awful. So then we headed back through Ozark to go to one of our favorite stores of all time "Leola's Vintage Home and Garden".
The first time I walked in the doors at this shop I told Pam "I could live in this place. " It has so many things that I like. The owner Jan from Summer Sundays is the nicest and most fun person. This is her.The store is full of Christmas decor right now, mixed with wonderful antiques and vintage stuff,
Lots of Pink and green and

Look at the music sheets tied with twine to the lighted branches, and the umbrellas hanging from the ceiling all over the place.

Love these candle sticks !

Lots of vintage Christmas...

I found this old book on a top shelf with knives stuck in it, as if marking the good spots .

Old bottles festooned with vintage Christmas labels...

And this wonderful PINK feather tree !

Lots of eye candy...

I thought this was cute ...

Oops ! Not so cute this way. LOL : )

There are so many wonderful vignettes , too many to photograph them all .

You'll just have to stop by there yourself to see.
It's in a little strip mall behind Lambert's right off of highway 65 in Ozark.
Tell Jan I sent ya !
You will LOVE it !


  1. Lots of wonderful goodies, but I LOVE that gorgeous PINK feather tree! *sigh* That would look PERFECT on my buffet! I've been looking for a tree for it, and I think that would be it!
