Olive Annie's

This is Olive Annie's. It is an adorable shop located in the historic Coronado district of downtown Phoenix. The owner, (or "the finder" as she calls herself) Lani Griffin, spent 9 months renovating this quaint, adorably teeny, bungalow.



She is one crafty queen. Look at how simple, but cute, this candle holder is: a simple mason jar and burlap webbing. Add a bit of sand and presto! Instant adoration.
Sigh~ Love.



What great displays! Her treasure trinkets and jewels are beyond loverly.



Such a yummy sweater.



This vest is so me. The handbag was quite chic too.




Would you like to try a few things on?





This is where the sale department is located. I know you are smiling!





You can leave your wish list on the wall.

What a cute shop and wonderful displays! I think that a big part of marketing is display. This shop has that down pat.

Now that is a shop that would make me slam on my brakes and do a 360 in the middle of the road.

I could spend a day just ohh'n and ahhh'n.

Happy Saturday

Hi! I found you on Vintage Windows blog, you had left a comment ahead of me. When I saw your name I knew I had to pop over! I absolutely love love Laura Ingalls Wilder. I got the Little House Series when I was in 4th grade and I have read the every year since (my copies are about to fall apart they are so well loved!) But anyway, I love your blog! I have a degree in interior design and have never done anything with it, life takes funny turns sometimes! But I love looking at all your posts!

Thanks for your visit. Unfortunately the Titans lost. snif snif!! It was a great year for the team. WOW the cardinals did awesome. They weren't expected to make the playoffs much less stomp the panthers like they did. Go Cards!!

Hi Laura! Thanks for visiting my blog. How I wish that Olive Annie's was located nearer to me. I just love these little gems. I'm having a giveaway to celebrate my one month anniversary in blogdom. I hope you'll stop by to enter.
