The Soulful Sparrow

Well, as I said in my last post, I just got back from visiting my daughter in Chicago.  While I was there we went to a farmers market in Elgin and had the best chocolate almond croissant from Katic breads.  You have got to try these if you are ever over that way!   We needed to walk off some of that goodness so we explored downtown Elgin.  We stopped at a great store called the Soulful Sparrow.  I absolutely fell in love with this place.  This was an old house that owners Judy Walsberg and Mary Pierce transformed into a wonderfully eclectic gift store.  They were nice enough to let me photograph it so I could show it here.
 They had great displays,

 Fantastic Halloween Stuff,

 Nice clothes,

And a few ideas I might have to borrow.

Make sure to check out the Soulful Sparrow if you are ever in the Chicago area.

I haven't posted anything for a long time because I spent three weeks in Chicago with these beautiful ladies; my daughter and granddaughters.  They just transferred to Chicago this summer, barely got moved in, and my son-in-law had to leave for training for a month.  It was great to just hang out, shop (a lot!), eat great food and explore new places with my daughter.  Of course there was some junking, and revamping going on too.
