Cloverleaf.....my lucky day!


When I headed to Ardmore, Oklahoma this afternoon, I had no idea what a treat I was in for. I was going to Cloverleaf which, I'd read about in Country Living a couple of years ago. Upon arrival I was delighted by the street appeal! Bright pink bikes outlined the entire property.
Parking the truck, I nearly hyper ventilated!
This place is like no other.
Every few feet had me ooo & ahhing.
It's like an amusement park for grown girls!
Pure fun at every turn! Everywhere there is pink
Pink, pink and pink! Apparently owner Heidi Chapman's favorite color. Check out her ride!...
and her vintage travel trailer.
Outside there was layer, upon layer of treasure.
I didn't know where to start.
Inside, there was more magic! One fabulous vignette after another!
So many of my favorite things gathered in one place.
Old Gringo Cowboy Boots, faux bois,
old tire planters painted fun colors,
big fish bowls full of assorted collections,
locker baskets,
and a chippy cabinet full of cubbies.
A great mix of old and new. This cleaver collection of crazy cool stuff made me wonder about the owner.... and what a fun person she must be! Much to my surprise, five minutes later I was visiting with her.
Meet Heidi Chapman! What a treat! She even shared her dessert with me......
The whole place was way over the top ( just the way I like it) and I had a blast!

DEAR ROXANNE,
I LIVE IN OKLAHOMA AND I HAVE NOT HAD THE PLEASURE TO GO TO THIS DELICIOUS PLACE. IT IS ABOUT A 3 HOUR DRIVE FROM MY HOUSE.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THE PICTURES...I WISH THEY WOULD ENLARGE SO I COULD SEE EVERYTHING CLOSE UP BUT HEY...NO COMPLAINTS...I AM DROOLING ALL OVER MY DESK...I THINK I HAD BETTER ARRIVE THERE EARLY AM AND WILL PROBABLY STILL BE THERE AT CLOSING. DID YOU ASK HER TO SIGN YOUR COUNTRY LIVING ARTICLE ON HER...WHEN I GO I THINK I WILL ASK HER IF SHE WILL. THAT WOULD BE AWESOME TO HAVE.
WONDERFUL POST

Shopping vicariously through you is so much fun! There's a wonderful little place here in Dallas called Junkadoodle, not anywhere near the size of your fun find, but definitely a treasure trove of bliss!

Stacey said...

Girl, I can't believe you came to Oklahoma without calling first! There are several of us who could have met you there. :) Isn't it a fun store? Makes my car veer off of the interstate sometimes too.

We have actually been in Galveston for the past several days. Driving through and gazing at that Texas sky made me think of your paintings!

Hey Roxanne! That place looks like sooo much fun! I'm still living in Shawnee, OK right now & I pass through Ardmore every time I go home and I had never heard of it before! What a great find! I'll have to try & get mom & Helen there one day soon!
