Day two...the journey continues...


I am not sure how many of you are familiar with Mary Carol Garrity. She is the owner of Nell Hills and Garritys in Atchison Kansas and the new Nell Hills in Kansas City, MO. She has a syndicated column in many of your local papers and has penned some fantastic style books.

The reason for our trip to Kansas City area every year started out as an expedition to see what Mary Carol was all about. We had read in Midwest Living all about her and followed her column on a regular basis.





What we found in Atchison was a second home for us. We love the town and the people there. It has become a pilgrimage for us and you will see through these pictures why we love it so!


Enjoy and take it all in. We can not do it justice with a few photos we have but you will get the idea. There will be not words...just look and look deeply.






































Now those are just the pictures from her historic home in Atchison. I have more pictures tomorrow from her stores. They will not disappoint.

I have been a fan of Mary Carol Garrity for several years. I had the opportunity to meet with her last August and it was such a thrill.
I now am going to go back and look at all your pictures a second, third and fourth time. :)
