I have been M.I.A for a short while. We made a quick trip back home to Ventura County to visit Family. It's good for us both to breath in some Ocean Air in order to break up the ho humness of our every day life.
While we are there we thrift until we can thrift no more!
I hope you'll forgive me but I forgot to take any photos, I was too busy living in the moment. But I did manage to share these from other sites, to help give you a mental picture.
We stopped in at my all time favorite antiques store, this photo does not do it justice.
At this store you're greeted by a pretty white chippy wicker chair, with a fluffy floral pillow, and you enter in through an old screen door. The front windows are full of "eye deliciousness" white benches, baskets, a red painted frame with a chalk board inside, lots and lots to look at and be inspired by. I always am on my visits.
The city is filled with gorgeous Historic Homes, here are a couple I have seen on many occasion.
There are charming cottages every where you go. Not to mention the Sea, the beautiful Shining Sea. Before we left we picked up our favorite lunch and stopped off at the Beach and ate outside on the sand, and walked along after, picking up pretty sand pebbles. One shaped like a heart. So...that's where I've been, and I am home now, with lots of treasures to sort through and luggage to put away. It's nice to get away, even for a few days. See you all very soon, xoxo tami
