Thursday Travels

Travels, near and far, are necessary to keep creative juices flowing. Inspirational places and new perspectives help me feel like I'm still part of a larger world.

West Monroe, Louisiana was the destination of this trip and the adorable bed and breakfast, Hamilton House, was our home for one night. This tiny town is home to numerous antique stores and other small, charming boutiques and local businesses.

Brooklyn, Co. Boutique

 A favorite boutique, Brooklyn Co., stocks must-have closet staples along with unique, handmade jewelry designed by the two local owners. When we enter, they curiously peek through two large curtains separating the whimsically decorated store in the front of the space from the workshop in the back. These two hip gals are warm, inviting, and to my dismay have not unpacked the new, Fall merchandise they just returned from buying. I guess I have another good reason to make West Monroe a future destination!
