Eye Candy at the Empty Nest- Warrenton, VA

Capturing a day with youngest daughter Sara, 
we set out to explore an area we are pretty unfamiliar
 with in Northern Virginia- Warrenton.

I  have been following the blog- The Empty Nest
 with Janet Metzger for awhile and we decided to go check it out.
The Empty Nest.

 This store has so much eye candy -
 you are first captured by the window display.

 Janet has delightful painted furniture pieces, and carries Annie Sloan chalk paint.

She teaches classes in her store.  Think you would learn from an expert here.

She graciously allowed me to take photos, (even with just my phone),
 took time to chat and greet,
 and welcomed us with fine hospitality.

Her collection of vintage tablecloths and linens was fantastic --
 (think I remember when she talked about her grand garner in her blog....)

And even though this visit was a purchase of some small things-
 a square metal pail for flowers and some washi tape,
 I will be back for inspiration at a shop with heart.
Follow Janet at The Empty Nest on FB.

And for the rest of our adventure-
we had lunch at Renee's Gourmet to Go-

smiled at the distant hills and said -
 think we have to come back here to  Main Street, Warrenton, Va.

A fine outing on a beautiful summer day.
Thanks for the time "to be" and make memories, Dear Daughter.
Next post- our time in Culpeper, VA.
