Myrtle, Maude, and Mabel’s in Covington, Indiana is nothing if not inspiring!

With such a diverse selection of things that lean toward the vintage shabby chic sort of style, this Fountain County shop is a feast for the eyes.

This is one of those pretty shops. The kind of shop that inspires me to be more creative in my home decorating  (or, um, creative period!).

Boasting a selection of fresh herbs and carrying items that range from garden decor to wall art, everything is arranged just so.

Truth be told, even little Indiana couldn’t resist this one. That shelf (shown below) is now hanging on a wall in my kitchen and waiting for the perfect (small) potted plant to grace its surface. It’s out there in an Indiana town somewhere. I just have to find it!

Myrtle, Maude, and  Mabel’s is not an Indiana antique shop. Well, not exactly. Think of it as re-purposed  or embellished items that are occasionally vintage.

You know, giving ordinary items new life with a fun new spin–and sometimes even a new purpose.

There’s a lot of cleverness here that frequently made me think “Martha Stewart”: a tin-backed bulletin board, a fabric-covered pin board surrounded by a vintage frame, and random things like patterned letters and old keys that just look neat.

In other words, I can’t believe I stepped in and out with only one purchase!
