Cape May Coffee Shop

While we were in Cape May, there was this great little coffee shop which I was totally smitten. If I were to open my own, it would be a lot like this one. It was an artist's paradise. I loved the way it was set up inside. Outside, it had an adorable garden, complete with all sorts of neat decorations that made it begged to be sketched. There was a little sparrow that was guarding his nest and he was chirping to be sketched.

There was a pair of children's galoshes that were designed as ladybugs that were reused as planters. There was a birdhouse made out of boards that used an old flagpole holder as a perch. As you can see in the first photo, there was a fireplace mantle with a chiminea in front to be used as a fireplace.

Another unique decoration was a mailbox shoved into a tree to be used for the birds, but it made me think of the Wizard of Oz.
