Favorites From The Vintage Marketplace

The Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks is coming up September 5,6 and 7th.
These are some of my favorite shots I've taken from the Marketplace.
Enjoy. Try to make it. It is held four times a year in Fallbrook, California.
It is down the freeway about 5 miles from Temecula, California.
 
There is always a good selection on vintage chandeliers.

display people are top notch.

Irish Eats And Drinks



Mr. COS and I spend our time eating out at favorites like Muldoon's Irish Pub in Newport
Beach, California.

The food and drink is delicious and fresh. 

It has lots of old world charm.

  Ghost images appear in the glass at evening hour.

We had the corned beef and cabbage. It was excellent and only on the dinner menu.
We ate lunch here a few days later and it wasn't nearly as good but still better
than any chain restaurant like Chili's or Mimi's.
