King Street Inspiration


There are many towns in the Washington, DC environs that we love to explore.  Bethany mentioned our trip to Georgetown this week, but I also had a lovely day yesterday in Old Town Alexandria, VA.  King Street is chock full of great boutiques, antique shops, eateries and charm.  This image just about says it all:



There are always so many beautiful vignettes at J. Brown & Co.  








 Anna Weatherly's line of fine china just blows me away. It is sublime (and so is the $575 per plate price point)!  The charger is only $150...gorgeous, and totally makes the setting.

It was a perfect day that ended with a stop at Haute Fabrics in Arlington where I picked up a few remnants to recover a bench.  

Bethany and I are off on a road trip this weekend to a dog show for Seamus (cross your fingers he gets MAJOR points towards his Championship) and next week I am off to the Eastern Shore for our much anticipated beach vacation.  Have a great weekend and enjoy the last days of August!

  2. The construction on 95 has kept me out of Old Town all summer and I am jonesing for a walk about and a relaxing lunch. I used to live on South Fairfax street and its funny to see how it has changed.

  4. Such a lovely spot! I sent my husband and kids on to the toy and ice cream stores, and I enjoyed poking around in some of the gorgeous decor stores!

  5. Hi Nancy, After being out of the loop for a while I have loved catching up this morning on what you and Bethany have been doing this summer - you ladies have been busy and I love your work! I was always a fan of Old Town Alexandria when I lived in DC - hope to get back soon.
    xo,

  10. I can see and feel the appeal of King's Street Nancy, and those plates, yup, like art, which if I ever have them would end up on a wall instead of on a table! Anyway, good luck to Seamus, he's just so darn good looking I'm sure he'll catch a prize or two down there!
