Shopping with Leigh & Me

Happy, happy Sunday, all !  Welcome to just a little shopping with Leigh & Me.

We don’t always go to dressing rooms…we have gone to small hill country towns…festivals…downtown…and today we go shopping on Joy Street!

Gotta love it…right?

Joyeux Home Decor is a lovely French Country Style home shop that I have wanted to spend more time in for awhile.

This trendy little barn in the middle of our city is a great place for gifts and home decorating ideas.

Of course, greeted with words like joy and inspiration, make me feel like I am home!

This glorious artwork featuring birds was my favorite and I keep thinking about it ever since our visit.

I did get some great ideas I have already decided how to implement.

Are you like me?  After Christmas, I am always thinking of ways to improve my home decor because it seems so “sad” when the decorations get packed away.

My design aesthetic is so similar…many of you know that I love French Country, a little bit farmhouse chic design.

I like the way they have taken it here and modernized the looks.

Leigh Ann was excited to find Reese Witherspoon’s book Whiskey in a Teacup, a Southern cookbook/life lessons book.

The women I know who bought it for gifts never gave it away.  I have it on my reading list now.

We both loved the kitchen area from individual berry cup pottery to beautiful coffee mugs.

And….we made purchases from the local Nectar D Fleur Honey Brand….the owners wife works in the store so they carry some of the items.

You can see the Mr. B and I have dived into the German Style Mustard and it is absolutely the best we have ever tasted.

I will be ordering more…or stopping by Joyeux to pick more up….it is sooooo good!

We were there to look over everything, and soon it was time to close the book on Joyeux…but I never close the book on JOY!

Afterwards, Leigh Ann was ready to check out the deals at Rack Room Shoes.

As a regular wearer of the Sperry brand, she fell hard for these Leopard Sperry Womens Slip On Sneaker.

There were many cute selections for casual fun.  We also liked this KEDS Women’s Jump Kick Slip On Floral shoe.

Of course, my eye went right to this KEDS Kickback in rust…great color! It also comes in a lovely olive color.

Who says casual has to be boring??

I liked these olive sneakers…Sketchers Street Catch the Light.

Finally, Leigh Ann liked the tie-dye designs by Bobs.  Rack Room seems to be sold out online, but I found them at DSW, Sketchers Bobs tie dye sneakers.

Kimono Cookies and Comfort Shoes

I have received so many requests for information on these shoes that I am wearing in the top picture…so here are the links again in case you missed them (and yes, I love them and wear often)

Comfortiva Taupe Sneakers

Comfortiva Navy & Black Sneakers

This was a fun outing…but all of our outings are fun and always include a little treat here or there.  On this one, we tried the new frittatas at Corner Bakery and their delicious pumpkin muffins.

Let me know if you have questions…thanks for being here and I will see you on JOY STREET!
