A very beautiful little old shop! Part of its charm is its older style! Love the hanging basket flowers in the street too!

Joy said...

The hanging basket is some size, their flowers obviously thrive. Great sign.

This is such a sweet sign...that is, if a sign can be said to be sweet. It does look vintage with muted colors. It is very appealing to me. Guess my age it telling tales on me.

This sign has a nice retro feel that still looks great today. Classical.

Mmmm. My grandparents owned a flower shop in a small town and I just loved to visit it because of the aroma inside.
