After soaking in the sun at South Haven for 5 days, we made a quick stop in Holland on the way back to Detroit. This town has some of the cutest shops around including the oh-so-sweet Karla's Place. You know a shop is going to be lovely when you see this motto behind their checkout.
In Karla's words... "I can't describe myself as a mountain climbing, bungee-jumpin' kind of gal, but I would describe myself as adventuresome. I have found the biggest adventure is to live the life of my dreams. I encourage others to consider, 'If failure wasn't an option, what would I do?' It's amazing what you can learn about yourself when doing what you really, really, really want to do. Creating Karla's Place has been a great experience allowing me to learn each day, show my creativity, listen to others' stories, and encourage others to be fearless. It's not what you 'do' or the title that defines you, but what you are 'doing' in your community and in your own life that makes for an exceptional life."
No doubt that Karla is a artsy girly-girl with a vintage flair. Her display style is dynamite & her collection of goodies (many of them handmade) are hard to resist. I picked up a recycled t-shirt flower head band that I've already worn a handful of times :-)
