A couple weeks ago my friends Gia, Ann-Marie and I hopped in the car and headed up north...(north of the river that is), to Parkville, MO to find a wonderful store called Florilegium.
It was a wonderful autumn day and I am glad I can share it with you!
|Hey Gia! Wait for us! |
(Gia drives us out of her maze of a neighborhood)
Come with us as we leave Overland Park, Kansas and drive north of the Missouri River, up to Parkville, Missouri and Florilegium.

If you like sewing arts, weaving, knitting, beading, crocheting, mixed-media, embroidery, or just looking at pretty things, this place is a must-see! I can't express in words the way a crafter feels when going into a place like Florilegium. It's magical! Everywhere you look you see something different and something you are certain you can work into one of your projects! I'll let you see what I mean...

|There it is!! Florilegium!|
|Is that a dust mop? No it's a dog who is sleeping on the counter!|
The Shop Girl welcomes us with a smile!
|Gorgeous antiques and interesting doo-dads are everywhere!|
|Button button, who's got the button?|
|A wall of gorgeous ribbon!|
|Hand embroidered ribbons behind a glass case are just stunning!|
