The Antique Garden: A Cozy Little Shop In A Cozy College Town

 

Whenever we’ve gone to Norman, OK to visit my sons who attend(ed) The University of Oklahoma we always stop by our favorite little shop for a peek.  It’s filled with some of the most original pieces, hip upholstery and, well, just lots of goodies to gawk at.  Yes, it’s one of those shops I’d like to curl up in with a cup of tea.  And that tells you it’s wonderful!

The entry “porch” is filled with fun accessories like this birdcage and iron.

Inside you’ll always find fun, chic upholstered pieces.

They always have lots of interesting finishes on their furnishings.

Love this old, distressed piece in these fun, interesting mix of colors.

If you’re ever in Norman you have to stop by this quaint little shop in at Boyd and Buchanan, Oklahoma’s Historical Campus Corner.  You will love it.  Or, that’s just not possible, you can visit there website here.

As for us, as much as we love that little shop, we had even more exciting things going on that day.  Forgive my bragging rights here:  My second son, Daniel, graduated OU!  Woo Hoo!!

Happy Day and Happy Decorating!!!!
