Sisters Garden & Bloom in Kalona, Iowa

Did I ever mention that I live next to one of the coolest shops in Iowa?! Sisters Garden & Bloom is just down the street from me, and I can never leave empty handed! They have two big farm houses filled to the brim with goodies, as well as a huge lot full of architectural finds. Today I was on a hunt for light fixtures for the new studio (pictures of that coming soon!). 

This shed is "to die for." Don't you just LOVE all the vintage pieces mixed together!  

All of the old windows....yes, I'm drooling!!! I wish I had this on my property!

The stairs are so clever and unexpected. I especially like the very top one, "Take the next step."

They also carry plenty of local items, like honey from The Kalona Honey Company. One of the great things about this little town is that there are tons products that are handmade right here.  It's something that makes Kalona such a unique place!

And last, but not least, I had to throw in a pic of these two hams!!!  

If you are ever out in the Iowa City area, it is definitely worth the time to drive 15 miles south on Highway 1 and check out what Kalona has to offer!
