this shop. I plan on going back to this little shop and taking some better pictures of their window display, because it was beautiful, and I only had my iPhone, and you guys just have to see it!
Atomic Garden. I really love this shop because it supports local artists as well as carrying quality handmade things. The shop is co owned by Adrienne Armstrong and a friend of hers. Adrienne is the wife of the singer Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day. There was a very nice article written about her and the shop here. I love how she actually spends time in the shop. I happened to be be in there last Christmas season, and she was there working on displays with an employee.
As I put up the tree yesterday, there was a bit of melancholy as I took ornaments out that were Nicole's. She will be in Europe again, and not here for Christmas. Makes us all a bit sad not to have her here.
We do plan on making the most of this holiday season though, and hope that Nicole and Pierre have a wonderful holiday over there.
I'm working on some little hats for the shop, hopefully I can show you very soon!
