There is a store near me called Gibson's. They have great outdoor items, such as patio table and chairs, fountains, statutes and lighting.

Like this cute little cat that looks like the bird has tied up in yarn.

They also sell faux flowers that look so real it's hard to tell even up close.

They have beautiful decor for inside as well. Look at these pretty mermaids.

I love the Fall flowers and decor they have now.

They have indoor furniture as well. I love the hutch they have done up in the golds, oranges and reds.

They have the such wonderful paper products too. Some you would never know were paper. I love this pattern though I don't think I would use the white plate with this.

They have place settings set up all through out the store. This table had an Italian look to it.

They set each table up with a different theme and use their lovely paper goods. This one was for Fall with the colors and flowers.

It's hard to tell but this table is all in parrots.

This little section caught my eye with the pretty pink roses and bird items.
But I had strength and didn't buy any of these things...even though I really wanted to.

But when I saw these little guys I knew I had to get them. They would be darling with my Fall decor. Which of course I will show you once I put everything out.

Gibson's decorates so pretty at Christmas. I promise to take better pictures when I go back then.

Don't forget you still have time to sign up for my Fall/Autumn giveaway. If you have not yet done so please click here http://cottageinthemaking.blogspot.com/2008/09/autumnfall-giveaway.html and do so. It's open until 9/22/08.

Joanne, I have to go there! Where is this store? Maybe we could have lunch and go together. We never did meet at Debra's Cottage. Let me know if you want to do this. I'm free most days except for Thursdays.
