Things thoughtfully collected.
Things that have character.
Things that have relationships with other things.
Things that we surround ourselves with ~ they all tell a story.
A story of the past, a story of travels, a story of our lives and how we like to live.
I’m reminded of a quote by the first lady of interior design, Elsie de Wolfe, “I opened the doors and windows of America, and let in the air and sunshine."
This is what came to mind when my friend Barb Mangini recently opened the doors to billy’s bungalow.
A shop full of fresh air and sunshine where she offers many wonderful things!
Barb’s collections come from her travels, her life in a historic house on Boston's north shore, and currently her small bungalow on the beach.
Her online Etsy shop is aptly named after her sweet boy Billy.
I love that!
Barb says, “This little shop is a place to pass along the things we've loved to new collectors and friends.” Many of my favorites I’ve included in this post would be just perfect for a picnic or setting a summer table!
A thoughtful collection and a thoughtful owner ~
Barb includes a little muslin bag filled with French Lavender in every order.
She also includes FREE shipping!
For more fresh air & sunshine I invite you to visit My Dog-Eared Pages, a delightful blog penned by Barb Mangini. She discusses art, fashion, interiors, and design and writes wonderful stories about the fascinating people she has come to know.
I know you’ll love getting to know Billy too!
