Hopping to Grasshopper

There's a place, about 40 minutes from here that I've always wanted to visit, called Grasshopper Imports. It's been there for years, and it's on the way to my brother's, but I've never stopped. My neighbour and friend Krista (Wren's Mom) told me I just had to go, so on Thursday we made a play date and headed off
They have all kinds of textiles and decor from around the world, but we were there for the garden pots and statues.
 They have a whole yardful - at least an acre (or more) in size. Pots and statues of every imaginable type. It was so hard to choose.
In the the end, I got this silly little garden snail. I found a nice little pink lavender bush to fill him with.
You may not know it, but I have a think for chickens, so this lovely little hen came home too. And what better to fill it with than Hens and Chicks?
And I definitely couldn't leave without a cat! So this sweet little Siamese joined us.

The day was hot, and I got a little bit sunburnt, but it was well worth the trip!

I don't think I could have resisted the little kitty either.

Oooh, great purchases! The hen is my favorite. I love the painting in the side of the building, too.

That looks like a great place. Love everything you got. Like Nancy, I really like the painted side of the building.
