Nothing gives you as much pleasure as building and decorating your house yourself. There are stores like the one you mentioned where you find all you need to make your house a comfortable home, where you feel a strong sense of belonging. Rather than depending on the one-size-fits-all mentality which is prevalent among many men and women in our generation, we have to learn to be creative and make our own decision regarding the aesthetics of our houses.

Gather is just down the road from my home and I have bought everything from funky cute pajamas to beautiful journals to the best smelling linen spray you can imagine from the shop. I always take my out of town visitors to Melissa's place. It's an amazing store and the location if so charming. ~ Lynn @thevintagenest
