Who's In for Window Shopping?

Hello beautiful bloggers!
I hope you are all feeling cozy and warm. It has been cold here in IL but without snow yet. I been busy cuddling and snuggling with my mumsy's hugs to keep her little hot-house-flower warm.
After some few shopping today, we stopped at my most favorite little store here in small town of Lincoln Illinois to get some goodies where mumsy used to work. My visit here is incomplete without sparing a moment at Beans and Such

Everything in the store is so beautiful, I just can't keep it to myself!!! Ihave got to show it to all my bloggy friends!!
It is not only the decorations entice me to keep coming back. The smell of their gourmet flavored coffee is heavenly!

Imagine wondering around the store while smelling those fresh coffee beans!
...and of the goodies too!
The store if filled with my interests from Elegant ...

...to the timeless vintage...

 ...to fun and colorful decors!

Mumsy has a town of this sparkly mini houses!

The items are for sale but inspirations are free!

Beans & Such opened in 1990 by Mary and David Lanterman, a mother and son team. Such sweet people!!
Mary  was very kind and allowed me go gaga to take pictures of her store so I could share it with you!
I used my smart phone becauseI didn't have my good camera with me.
If you just happen to go by small town of Lincoln IL, maybe you could pay Mary and David a visit at their shop for some shopping or grab a cup to taste their gourmet coffee or just to say hi :)
Maybe you could say hi to mumsy if you happen to see her around the shop!
I hope you enjoyed window shopping with me today.
Till the next post!
