When We’re Not Reading… We’re Happy in the Heights!

A short car ride to a friend’s house and the kiddo and I find we have all of the Heights at our fingertips… or our toes, rather, as we don’t walk with our hands.  My favorite part of the drive is passing those town homes pictured above – they remind me of Full House.

January 2013 046I love the Heights.  There’s always something new to discover, and today we stumbled across Sparrow and the Nest, a little art boutique off Studewood.

Undaunted by a two year old waltzing in amongst their treasures, the people (Andrew and Stephanie) are really nice and took the kiddo to the back and let her play with markers while my best friend browsed the shop. I came away with a priceless masterpiece from my offspring, while the bestie picked out a gorgeous bookmark. We were on our way to get coffee at Antidote, so we didn’t stay long.

As their website says, Sparrow and the Nest is really best experienced in person, there’s so much to see that I just couldn’t capture on camera.  Lots of tiny origami in frames and on pins, teensy handcrafted things you won’t find anywhere else, and all of it so beautiful.  Cool pieces of furniture, paintings, quilts… the shop is as good as visiting an art museum, better actually because you can take the stuff home if you’ve got the cash.

I’m not the best photographer, but I took some pictures to share anyway.
