Lisa and Nikki's Friday Finds!

Hi Friends:

What has inspired and delighted us this week? Here they are - the sights, sounds, tastes and one-of-a-kinds we loved!

Bring a little nature inside with this pinecone garland window decor. All it takes is a few varieties of pinecones, some twine and burlap bows!
A chance meeting with designer Rachel Ashwell, founder of Shabby Chic at her store in SoHo, New York City. I have been a follower of her time-worn style and ideas on practical living for more than 20 years! 
Don't you want to crawl into this bed in her store?
A wall of yarn at Purl Soho in New York City. If you knit, crochet or enjoy any type of needle work, follow their craft blog, the Purl bee, where they publish great ideas and you can shop for project supplies.
Erika Conaway in the Broadway musical A Chorus Line currently touring across America. Winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this show is a must see! Catch it in a city near you.
I may be late to the party, but I have arrived and am totally hooked on Downton Abbey  airing on PBS! If you're like me and have some catching up to do, you can find Season 1 and 2 on Hulu. Besides having an irresistible story line, this Masterpiece Classic series offers vintage and antique lovers an opportunity to revel in the lifestyle of an aristocratic British family in the early 1900's.  Violet Crawley played by Maggie Smith is a favorite character. Take a look at some of her best one-liners!
