chi-town2: sprout home

I'm sure many of you are familiar with Sprout Home, which we first heard about from designsponge a while ago- we've visited the website several times and oogled at their fine selection of goodies- so when we had the opportunity to actually go to chicago- we had to make it a priority- Sprout Home is kinda out of the way from where we started out- (we started in Wicker Park) and the walk was kind of long- but very nice and there's tons of little shops along the way- (however, don't go on a monday, like we did, cuz so many cute shops we wanted to check out were closed...sad) but once we found it- it was well worth the trek- So much lovely-ness there and integrated with a wonderful selection of live plants. A few faux-wood things we found were: this great little box by Deep Boxes- you open it up and it has a forest print and a small mirror bottom with words screened on it, and this beautiful little twig notepad- they also carry a good selection of eggpress cards, that Em posted about before- I ended up buying a cool little planter/pot from ASA designs, that i will post on happymundane-
anyways- if you get a chance to go in person- SproutHome is definitely a must see. (and shop!)
