Appealing Color

...and the Delights of Booth #245.

I have my routine "shoppe" stops and one of which is the Knitting Mill on the Northshore of Chattanooga. I wandered in many years ago thinking that I was going to find some yarn for a project but to my disappointment and delight, I found this wonderfully quaint antique shop! The floors creak and the building stays a bit on the cool side, like most converted factories do but the walk through the booths occupies just enough "me time" to soothe the soul. Not too long to feel selfish but just long enough to feel refreshed. I have found a beautiful assortment of items, many which have made thoughtful gifts and with the combination of old and new there is something for everyone.

The store is made up of a myriad of booths, each featuring a theme or particular interest of the owner. Each has it's own flavor and I am like a kid in a candy shop. However, one booth keeps me mesmerized for quite some time and I am convinced it is because of the way the owner of booth #245 shows her love of color by her beautiful displays.

It takes a bit of time and a thoughtful nature to arrange each item
artfully by color.

She draws me in to take a closer look every time.

The whites are clustered in a corner with a combination of milk-glass and traditional china. All
very delicate looking...

The turquoise seems to be ready to move into a bright & fun kitchen with kitschy items that would bring joy to household chores...

The sage is a naturalistic look that seems almost
timeless with an easy transition into any style of home...

The pink is playful and girly, no doubt, suitable for teas and brunches with the ladies...

The lime and cobalt seem to have stepped right back into vogue with the electricity of the hues. The past could move easily into the present, feeling right at home in the room of a teen girl....

The cranberry hue is deeply saturated with an almost regal persona, even the casual demitasse cups seem to have an air about them...

If you find yourself wanting to indulge for the afternoon, why not stop into the
and wander around, you are sure to find a colorful treasure around every corner.
