Nell Hill's

Yesterday I visited Nell Hill's and Garrity's in Atchison, Kansas. The original stores of Mary Carol Garrity. Nell Hill's is named after her Grandmother. It's already dressed up for Christmas. She used a fairly natural and neutral palette for Christmas this year. My photos aren't the best, but give you an idea of this fabulous shop.
I love wall galleries of pictures. So, does Mary Carol, evidently.
Really great "cow" bells on this wreath.

Upstairs she used a lot of old window frames for her decor.
It will help to click on the photos for more detail.

She used big pine cones with paint and glitter.
I loved this perspective above my head.
Each room downstairs has a different color palette. This was blue/gold/copper.

They have such a fabulous selection of "greens" for your Fall and Christmas decorating. Mary Carol loves pedestals, boxes, trays, stools and books to prop up all your pretty things. I'll show you more photos tomorrow of Garrity's which is decked out for Fall. When I return home next week I'll show you how I incorporated my purchases into my own home. I could've done so much more damage. Actually Hunky Husband helped!


  1. These photos really put me in the Christmas mood - I especially like the blue and gold room!

  2. I put a Christmas cd in my car yesterday! I'm ready for the cold weather and all of the holiday fun!
    Looks like you are having a great trip!

  3. This is my kind of store for sure!

  4. Lovely post today! I don't know which I lked more, the beautiful window frames hung from the ceiling, the boughs over the bed, or the picture wall. All simply gorgeous!
