Above is a photo of Me,Brenda and Mel after shopping at Incourage. It is a wonderful shop that has only happy and beautiful gifts with a positive spin. I spent a good chunk of cash as did the other girls. This shop has hidden treasures everywhere and great music, color and happy clerks to serve you. Everyone smiles in this great atmosphere.
I will be doing a book signing there next Novemeber for my new book. This is the kind of place I would love to meet "Mary Lou" people. It has all of the things I love in a shop.

The pink tree in the background catches your eye from outside the shop and every ornament looks fabulous on this color! What fun to get out photos taken here.

Above is the shop owner (positive, friendly, remembers customers, helps and is wonderful) and next to her is her girl Friday who is also a great person to ask for help or just to talk to!

I thought this beaded bird was wonderful in every way and so creative!

Here is the nice UPS man who looks like Santa with all kinds of new things for shelves in the store. I heard that every holiday is done to perfection and creativity in this wonderful shop! This guy was cute and positive too!

Whoever heard of a red tree? It is stunning in person and they said if you use it for Christmas you can leave it up and cover it with hearts for Valentines day! COOL!

I fell in love with this wonderful angel. I thought about getting it for my birthday in Feb. (a big one) but how to get it home?????

While you are shopping they give you a beautiful bottle of cool water...what a treat.

Aren't these trees cool? We bought all kinds of goodies to put into the cornacopias we made for our family trees. This place had great prices and all kinds of stuff!

Anything red looks fabulous on lime green and thought many ornaments were sold, there were still plenty for me to buy and I plucked alot off of here to put on my own great tree at home.

The shop from the outside....this shop is next door to Starbucks...can you imagine my excitement? I hope you will come visit there when I come next Novmeber. This shop is worth the drive...I am not kidding! It was the first place I asked Brenda to drive us to see.

The owner made this great brancg to hang all of the things off of. I loved the look of cherries on branches....I hope to do this when I win the lotto all over my house..........

More ideas of things to buy....this place is a great size with all kinds of things everywhere....

I bought a similar pillow (mauve velvet) that said "To the Moon and Back" which I used to say to my children about how much I loved them....I may keep it or give it to one of the girls....
I sincerely hope you go to visit this shop sometime in the won't be sorry. It is truly wonderful in so many ways.

Lime Green and Hot Pink, two of my favourite colour combinations together as walls for a shop.

That is some brave ladie to choose that for her colour theme!

What great inspiration for creativity. I've got to go back to San Antonio and visit that shop.
