show us your noodle and shoes and nido edition

sometimes i have great ideas (at least to me) and i start them and then forget to continue them. ie..."show us your noodle and lou". remember that!? well, today i am reviving the idea....and i have a whole juicy photo cd FULL of fabulousness from my dear pal that i will show you in the next edition. yep. a bit of a cliffhanger...

but today i want to celebrate 2 sweet shops. real, live, "brick and mortar" shops. shops run by beautiful, creative and inspiring gals. the first being my sweet pal catherine at her darling shop...

red shoes

332 south ashley, ann arbor, MI

catherine is a master of color and fun finds. you will fall right in love with her funky fabulous style. stop by and shop for unique jewelry, art (including catherine's!), linens, home goods, candles, furniture, vintage treats...AND MORE. can't get to ann arbor? (you really should try!!) you can shop with her online too! yahoooOOO...just go right HERE. or HERE is the shop's contact info. i am soooo lucky to have some noodle and lou treats hanging out at the shop. here are a couple peeks for ya...

wooden lulettes hanging out next to julie's darling vases (and p.s. the lulettes are still available i think;))

can you spot the noodle and lou peeking out behind catherine's adorable domed worlds?

thanks catherine for being wonderful YOU! hooray for red shoes!!

now for the sweet phiona at...

209 college street • suite 2e
burlington, vermont

if you live near burlington, you must stop into nido! a gorgeous little shop filled with yummy fabrics and yarns. i don't think you can help but feel completely inspired when you walk through the doors! they offer a great assortment of classes...i want to take them all! visit nido's website HERE.

i was so fortunate to have a few treats in phiona's shop over christmas...

hooray for wonderful phiona!!! thank you friend for everything:)

and happy monday to all of you guys! it's been tough around here lately...bad news about job prospects and yuck stuff like that. trying to stay positive. i'm a little bit in slow motion with all of it. be patient with me. hoping things will be back to 'normal' soon.
