September Ending

Well tomorrow is the last day of September... This is our little Maxie and his great granddaddy, my dad Lenny. As I said before September and October are usually great beach months... Though this year the last few days have been unusually hot!!! The last few days we have gone down for an evening walk and the two of them stopped to count the sun setting:) (something my dad would do with me when I was a little girl)
I just love love this moment between the 2 of them.... soooo sweet

I sold at the Ventura Flea Market on Sunday, I meant to bring my camera but forget:( I guess it did not really matter because I was crazy busy selling!!! I was with my 2 friends, Karine and Lenola we had a blast!!! I was hoping to take pictures for my online store but sold everything... I am not complaining at all:)  Now I have to go shop some more:) Bigger news for me was I got asked to sell at the Little French Market Flea Market in Tarzana the endof October... Which is super exciting for me!!!! I will keep all posted.....

Cheers for now

Sweet Pink

I think Pink Milk Glass is beautiful!!! Though it is hard to find ever once in a while you will come across a piece. My dear friend Karine seems to find it better than me, which really works out well for me since she only collects the white milk glass and she gives me all the pink she finds!!! Lucky me:) Oh and by the way I love love pink everything... The large pink bowl I found downtown Ventura and probably paid too much for it but I loved the uniqueness of it and it was in perfect condition no clips or cracks!!! The roses are from my David Austin rose bushes, what I love about them is that the roses look like a Peony, another favorite flower
of mine.

Things have finally settled down with my son just getting out of the hospital. I am FINALLY finishing my online store. It is taking forever but I had to get my credit card system tied into the one I have now and blah blah blah... it is just taking forever, but it will be up and running this week they (credit card company) promised me...

it is a beautiful day...finally a blue sky and the sun is nice and warm, I think my little Maxie and I will go explore the beach today and see what wonderful treasures we can find:)

Cheers for now

Sweet Sweet Peas

One of my most favorite flower is the Sweet Pea, the colors, the scent .... are just so perfect!!! These will be the last of the season, I had found an old seed pack and just threw them out and was very pleased when I saw them blooming... and surprised since we have had a very cool summer.  My sweet little grandson Maxie was so thrilled when we found the flowers.. He has helped grow some very large zucchinis and his pumpkin's are coming along very nicely!! When the pumkins were still very small we scratched his name on them and as the pumkin grows so does  his name, he is actually very amazed by this:)

My little blue knobby glass pitcher is perfect for a few of the Sweet Pea's, they brighten up a room. And of coarse I have my sweet little birds... Which by the way if you didn't know it I love love little birds and SPARKLES!!! I found this huge jar of German glass glitter and I am parting with some of it. I found these darling salt and pepper shakers and I thought what could be more perfect for my glitter!!!

The 17th of September is just a few days away and I am working hard to get my online shop up and running!!!

Cheers for now

A week later he has been released from the hospital no worse for the wear:) He is doing well, it just has put me back a few days... But not to worry by September 17th I will be up and running.....

A Peek at Whats To Come....

Here are a few more sweet items that will be available on my website.. Which by the way is only 2 days away from going on line!!!! Just in case you were wondering:)
The wonderful iron plant holders I found at an estate sale on Coronado, which is just a short ride over a very high bridge from San Diego. Its so amazing when you come into this sweet town, its like you go back in time. There are wonderful California Craftman homes, old Victorians and a beautiful hotel named Hotel del Coronado. Lots of shops... One of my favorites is The Attic, so many sweet sweet things to choose from.. The owners are so nice they make shopping very fun....
I think every garden could use a little friend here or there. I love love this sweet little duck and the sleepy dove... just a few more of the items that will be on my website....
Thanks for stopping by....

More Goodies


Labor Day marks the "official end of summer" though here in
my lovely little corner of the world
begins 2 months of warm sunny beach days. The tourist
have all gone home and our sleepy little beach town gets a little less crowded.
Life seems to slow down a little bit more.......

Here are some of the items that will be on my website, which by the
way is only 3 days away from going online!!!!!!
I am carrying many different items, something for everyone..

The card line I carry is from Papaya Art, their cards are so sweet and
they have a little sparkle!!! Then there are my little birds,
I love love these darling little birds!! They are  vintage and many of them
are  made in Germany, then there are the little rose placecard
holders, again one of my many

The jewelry I have on displayed is all handcrafted by a local artist... I have
lots and lots of silver flatware that is a bit of this and a bit of that, I don't
think that everything has to match:) 

These are just a few of the "Goodies" stay tuned for more.......
