is a labor of love for 20-year Wyoming resident Pfahler. She offers a carefully curated selection of goods that delivers the delicate balance of design where put-together never crosses over into stuffy or over done. There are items for daily living – from plants and artisan-made pots to breadboards and other house ware goods – plus jewelry and gift items like candles and collectables. She also offers custom painting for furniture that needs a facelift, and the store is usually full of inspiration from finished pieces, many offered for sale.
