Garden Center Beauties





We visited my favorite garden center last week. I got this shot of a beautiful Begonia plant.
 

Another beautiful Begonia.


Love this tree with the hanging baskets.


Everyone has some kind of vintage planter that they can do this.


Inside the garden center is a boutique and I love this magnificent Paris
banner that they had hanging inside.
 

Stunning display of glassware.


This beauty is for sale.
 

Inside were hanging more than a dozen beautiful chandeliers.


I liked this little chandelier.
 

We bought this plant and brought it home and planted it.
It is supposed to attract butterflies.

Summer Dressing 2015


I went shopping for summer threads with my daughter
and I am going to share a little of our trip with you.
First that is up, is my favorite outfit that we found.
This was at Nordstrom.
 

Something for lounging on hot summer nights and a lightweight cardigan
if you walk out by the pool and there is a chill. Also at Nordstrom.


This is a lightweight lavender trench coat. My daughter found this
at the Paparazzi boutique in San Francisco. 
 

A new take on a denim jacket. I have never seen anything like this. At Nordstrom.


This is the outfit my daughter wore to go shopping at
Nordstrom. Not bad for "then" fashion?



I bought these earrings at the
Paparazzi boutique in San Francisco.
Just so you know the sizes were so
small this is the only thing that fit me.
 

This tee at Nordstrom. I thought I'd give you a smile.
When I was a teen there was this certain age that
I gave up fries for guys.
 

Finally, this is me having lunch at Nordstrom's lunch room
in my new Nordstrom hat and my Johnny Was top from
on-line and my Ralph Lauren sunglasses. I have the one
size fits everyone earrings on. I am back to eating fries.

More From The Vinage Marketplace Summer 2015



These are a few more photos from the Vintage Marketplace
June 5,6 and 7 of 2015. They are mainly of things my
friend and I were thinking of purchasing. This all white
shabby chic prints called to me. I like them for my all
white shabby master. I don't have any more room on
my walls so I had to walk away.

These vintage chairs were re-upholstered by Rita Reade and were in
her booth for $30 a piece and my friend was interested in them.


This is an oil on wood. I don't know if it is a Christie Repasy work of not.
 

Vintage dolls getting ready for the summer spirit.


Charming wall art.
 

I almost bought this t-shirt. Surprising some of the booths had new clothes.
 

Beautiful.


Have a cup of coffee before or after your visit next door at the Rainbow Oaks café.
Reasonable prices. Down to earth good food.

Vintage Marketplace Summer 2015



Today I am posting my favorite images that I took at the Vintage Marketplace in
Fallbrook, California this weekend.


There were so many chandeliers that I thought I would only post them
but it turned out that there were so many beautiful things to photograph
that I got lost in the moments and posted those, too.

Inside Christie Repasy's beautiful booth
 

Beautiful handmade jewelry from Grace Abounding.
 

So many beautiful flower arrangements.


Chandelier #2.


These are a rare sight in Southern California.

That's it for today. I didn't buy anything altho I was very tempted.
Maybe next time. I leave you with the shot of this vintage window
pane and more beautiful flowers. Vintage Marketplace is going on
tomorrow and Sunday if you want to visit. Take the 15 to Rainbow
Valley Blvd. Exit and go about 5 minutes down the road and you
will see a turnoff for the Marketplace.

San Francisco



Taking off from LAX to San Francisco on Virgin
America with the tower in the background.
I would fly Virgin again.

My daughter and I traveled to San Francisco and Redding, California for a week. This little
Beach Grill started an amazing adventure for us. Our waiter made our day. He
steered us to some wonderful sites and shops.


We started our adventure here on a typical
San Francisco street.


We walked about and found this fantastic little boutique called,
Paparazzi. This was our most memorable time in San Francisco.
This is the front window of the shop that is filled with beautiful
clothing and jewelry. If you visit, you have to stop here. It's
the North Beach location on Grant Street. More later on what we
bought.
 
This was the chandelier hanging in the shop. I can't resist a gorgeous chandelier.
 
Beautiful one of a kind pieces of jewelry.


This is the sign on the front window.


This is the famous coffee house where many authors have written
best sellers. I had espresso. Delicious.


This is the book store made famous in the hippie sixties.


How could we miss walking to Pier 39 where I got this shot of a passenger ferry racing to get a
better view of Alcatraz prison.


This is the back of the Fog Harbor restaurant at Pier 39. We had a pick me up here which
included crème brulee.

I couldn't resist taking this photo.
 

On our way out of San Francisco I walked into this Art Gallery (near the CVS) with a dozen beautiful
chandeliers located near Pier 39.


We drove to Redding, California where we stayed in this beautiful hotel (Win-River) with
this lovely creek running in front of it.
 


My top is by Lucky brand from Nordstrom and my sunglasses by Ralph Lauren
My earrings I bought at Paparazzi.
This is the reason for our trip. We went to see my brother, Doug.
Here we are underneath the palms at the hotel.

This is my beautiful daughter, Jenny. A joy
to travel with. We had a great time.

This is the view of the Bay Bridge as we drove to the airport to return home.
I didn't get a shot of the Golden Gate Bridge. I was too far away.
