A friend and SG reader emailed me last week and told me that my yellow mirror is in the November issue of Real Living in the “Your Thoughts” section. Yippee! I wont be able to see it for awhile since it takes a bit longer to get here from Australia. So Australian peeps, let me know how it looks!
Also, check out Viv’s blog today. She announced on ish and chi that her home is featured in Real Living!! I am so excited for her. She is a lovely person with a lovely home:)

I am excited to introduce you to a new installment here on Simply Grove. I have had quite a few local SG readers request tips and suggestions on shops, design and cool finds here in Boise. Well I welcome you to Les Bois Tuesday. Every Tuesday I will be introducing and or re- introducing you to somewhere fabulous in my city, Boise Idaho. Some may underestimate Boise’s cool factor but I assure you that we are expanding and growing into a city full of hip and lovely finds. Really?? Idaho?? Yes, Idaho. And come on, we have Boise State football!!

Our first stop is Paisley Roberts. Eeeekkk, I LOVE this store. You want gift wrap and stationary heaven? Here it is! They have walls lined with gorgeous paper and carousels full of colorful ribbon. They carry Angela Adams, Lotta Jansdotter, Kolo, Three Designing Women, Cavallini & Co., Tea Forte, Curly Girl Design, and Egg Press—just to name a few.


The owner of this adorable shop Liz Roberts shared with me that their gift selection including Angela Adams stationary sets and their variety of candles are hit sellers. Also their Imprintable invitations are really popular. You can choose from Snow and Graham, Cross my Heart, Bella Ink, Inviting Company, Peculiar Pair, Egg Press, and more.

Their front display window is so chic! I love the dress made from paper.



The ribbon carousel is my favorite feature in the store.
Mix and Match stationary.


If you are in the downtown Boise area make sure that you stop by Paisley Roberts on 9th St. You are going to want to buy the whole store, trust me.

If you still don’t believe me that Boise is cool then let Design* Sponge tell you.

I wanted to give my sofa a fall makeover but not spend alot of money. I found some plaid shirts that hubby and I grew tired of and made a few pillows out of the fabric. I also found some ultra cheep vintage fabric from a consignment shop and made a few more pillows. There is another floral fabric that I found at a local fabric store that I will add soon. But for now I like my plaid party on the sofa. Oh and how about that lamp find!!
