so Habitually Chic!

While visiting family in Pittsburgh for the holidays, I had the pleasure of meeting Heather from Habitually Chic. Here we are in front of our favorite store, Toadflax. She doesn't think the picture turned out well, but I think she's beautiful, don't you?We intended to spend the afternoon shopping on Walnut Street in Shadyside but rainy weather forced us inside for drinks. She was with one of her best friends since childhood and we had a really fun time. Toadflax carries an assortment of gift items as well as being a really beautiful flower shop. Both of us agreed, if we opened up our own stores, it would be precisely like Toadflax! The side window had this charming collection of owls, I especially love the one that lights up below -don't you? What a great nightlight!

You both look quite lovely! And so does Toadflax. I could get lost in there for a day or two. :^)

What fun! And you look awfully good too...even if you were under-the-weather! Here's hoping for a little snow in Washington.

Thanks everyone! It was a fun afternoon -even with all the rain! Willow, the only bad thing about the shop is that it is TINY!!!

We lived in Mt. Lebo for 5 years and I did fundraising for Winchester Thurston. At lunch I would always walk around in Shadyside. Toadflax was one of my very favorites!

The pic on your main page brought me to this post. I'd forgotten about Toadflax - likely my brain's effort to erase much of the Pittsburgh years.
