The Planted Earth Shop~ Orem, Utah

We found this delightfully unexpected inspiration along the road on our travels around the Southwest. Definitely off the beaten track. We obtained the local antiques advertising publication, took our chances, and struck gold!

Planted Earth has everything I love in a vintage shop under one roof. Garden antiques greet you on the front porch, with beautiful plantings flowering in the door yard beyond.

Here are a few samples of the garden wares. . . .

I came this close to hauling this gorgeous mailbox home.

More delights when you enter the pretty front door. . . .

My very first impression was of all the fabulous vintage lighting hanging all over the place.

Lovely shell boxes.

Cut glass lamps.

A bit of silver and ironstone.

This one came home with me. I wonder if I would have been able to resist it some other time of year?

Baskets galore!

Sweet vintage linen. . . .

Chippy white cupboards and shelves. . . .

Darling baby things. . . .

Check out this fabulous vintage lamp shade! (This is actually a hanging fixture.)

Gorgeous antique lace. . . .

and satin. . . .

Lots of glamour. . . .

And tons of bling!!!

So much fun! I practically floated out the door! 
I hope you're finding inspiration somewhere too. . . .

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hasta la vista!

  8. I would not have been able to resist the mailbox! You have to go back and get it. lol

  9. Wow. I wouldn't have known where to start and would probably have still been there two weeks later! I definitely would have needed U-haul to get me home. I hope you came out with a good few things? Joan

  10. What a fun place to have discovered. I would not have been able to leave without taking home with me that sweet white small cabinet and a few linens :)

    Have a beautiful week.


  11. Oh, my! Looks like a place one could spend most of a day in.

  12. What a wonderful place - those wonderful baskets and linens! Hope I come across somewhere like that when I'm in the US later this year.

  13. What a beautiful shop! And in Orem! I just got back from Lehi, but no time to browse cute shops, with new baby and 3 other little boys in tow. Thanks for the tour!

  14. Truly inspirational, Jacqueline! I love the linens and the white shelf. *sigh* What a lovely shop... I hope it's close enough for you to enjoy when you like.

  15. Lots of things to look at there.

    Thanks so much sharing this place. It would be so much fun to visit.
    sending hugs...

  17. It's so fun to go shopping with you. You find the best places! I would have been in hog heaven in there. I love that crazy light fixture, and the garden stuff... so great. And, yes... i think that little ironstone bowl would have gone home with you any time of the year!


  18. Isn't it wonderful finding little out of the way shops while traveling. I think that is one of the reasons I do so enjoy it.



  19. Ohhhh this store looks amazing. I bet you have so much fun looking through all the treasures. Love that white chandelier. Very pretty.

  20. What a treasure trove, I certainly could get lost in there,some such pretty things. Those shell boxes are so unusual.Your purchase I think matches your other brown transfer ware x
