Saturday Fun Day.........ReFind Home and Garden

What a fun is feeling a little like Fall here in GA, I guess because we haven't seen the sun all week thanks to Fay on the coast, but none the less it is nice and cool and no one seems to want to come to the pool today, so I got up and headed out on an adventure. Last weekend at Lakewood I met a delightful lady named Pat Mallory, who has the cutest store in Powder Springs, GA, so I decided to check it out. Feast you eyes on ReFind Home and Garden. Little did I know what a treat I was in for. At first glance you think cute little store, but when you get inside this is what you see.......... powder springs 010

The whole store has a very frenchie feel and she has the most amazing taste......all these wonderful little antique 'one of a kinds' mixed in with old unexpected things. She has a collection of mannequins that she displays things on........this one she bought from Theresa Smith last weekend and draped this vintage lace on, it is gorgeous.

This little area we will call a tribute to Theresa Smith, this wonderful table she got from Theresa last weekend, as well as some of the other things, and look Theresa she has your magazine article opened right there beside it. She has real good taste, huh. I don't know if you can see that darling little baby doll in the cloche on the table, but, she had to come home with me, and the best part is she is missing an arm, and is wearing a beautiful crocheted suit, I will take a better picture of her later.

Look at this mannequin with a darling crown on top that one of her customers made, there are several all around the shop and they are stunning. And the shawl around this mannequin looks so Magnolia Pearl.

Pat Mallory is a classy lady who has amazing style. I have known her for quiet some while and she takes very good care of her clients and customers. We met when she helped me tweak the decor of my master bedroom and did an incredible job, at very reasonable prices. Her store is well worth the trip from where-ever you may be.

Pat is a fabulous person and Refind is one of my favorite shops! It should also be noted that Pat very graciously opens her shop up to a creative craft class once a month lead by a wonderful artist names Gerri Leslie of Hopelessly Romantic Art Studio. We have a great time creating while listening to french music and swapping ideas.
