I can’t wait to let this little girl fly through the mail, to invite everyone to #merryandbright . Read more about it (and see the full design) on the blog! Link in profile. #aliceadair #shoplife #christmas #countdown #holidayopenhouse (at Alice Adair & Co.)

So… this happened. #cantreallydraw #butidoodledacat #proudofit #postitnoteworkofart #whathappenswhenimputonhold

It’s hard to imagine that three weeks from today, the shop will be overflowing with treasures I’ve been holding (hoarding?!) back for our annual Merry & Bright holiday event. Mark your calendars! You won’t want to miss it. #aliceadair #shoplife #vintage #antiques #merryandbright #holidayopenhouse (at Alice Adair & Co.)

It was so hard not to share the site being live the minute I did the final tweak and review last night! But it’s finished and I’m so excited that my cheeks hurt from this permanent grin I’ve worn all morning!

Late night texts with the grit to my glam sister-from-another-mister are the best. #friends #family #creatives #gritandglamforlife

Today is brought to you by the letter B: bright blue skies, brisk breezes, and a beautiful fall day to come out and browse all the new things at Alice Adair & Co. and the neighboring shops — The Grove Gift Shoppe and The Revival Restoration Co.! We are all open until 2pm. #aliceadair #shoplife #shoplocal #dover #ohio #gorgeousfallday #oldletter #sesamestreettaughtmewell

It seems I’m in a contest to see how many things I can wear around my neck. #aliceadair #baublecollector #opticianlense #initial #key #lock #watchrepairtag #motherofpearl #jewelry #vintage

My granddad used to say you shouldn’t listen to Christmas music until after Thanksgiving… whoops. #sorrygranddad #aliceadair #shoplife #holidayopemhouse #32daysaway #notlikeimcountingoranything #workinglate #adventuresinshopkeeping

humansofnewyork:

“There have been very good parts and very bad parts, but in the end, I love life. Every night before I sleep, I ask God for three more years, so that I can make it an even one hundred. Then I recite a blessing that my mother gave me when I left her in Poland. It was the last time I saw her. The blessing is much more powerful in Hebrew, but it says: ‘Wherever you go, may people always recognize that you have a beautiful heart.’”

(Jerusalem)

WHEREVER YOU GO, MAY PEOPLE ALWAYS RECOGNIZE THAT YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL HEART.

This. Forever and always.
