Valley Junction

Last week a Friend and I went to Valley Junction in West Des Moines. We had a great time taking photos and finding lots of scrapbooing and fun little goodies! Here are a few pics of my daughter Jordan.

I especially love this photo of Jordan looking at all the beautiful artwork in this shop. The sign that says "Artisitc" is just so her.

I love these fun directional signs, too:

And check this out, this is part of a beautiful mural dedicated to those who served to protect out country. There are several other pieces like this one painted right on the side of a building.

Here are a few more fun pictures I captured while strolling through the valley.

The first store we went to was Heirlooms by Design, a cute little scrapbooking and stamping shop. Here are a few goodies I picked up while there.

We went on to browse through some of the antique shops where I found this little treasure. I can't wait to clean it up and play around with it.

Our last stop was Frackleberry's, a cute and colorful little place. This store was filled with so many fun things.

We purchased this adorable doll and kleenex for Jordan.

And I picked up this set of fun keys. These would look great as a decoration, but I have plans for these in some of my arts and crafts projects.

A very fun and inspiring day! Thanks for stopping by!
