Best friends, good food, and the sweet ocean air; that is what awaits me each time I visit Fort Bragg, here in California. And this past weekend was no exception.
|The original poodle~|
|"Tippy" and I have been doing this same pose,|
on this same Mendocino bridge, since we were in our early 20's~
|A picture perfect town!|
|Me and Sydney Jayne!|
|Fort Bragg, CA!|
|A typical Fort Bragg front garden~|
|Rhododendrons in bloom!|
See the deer?
|How bout now?|
I swear I saw more deer this weekend,
than I ever have in my life!
|New Border Collie pups!|
Too cute Tunnel Hill Border Collies!
These pups are so popular,
I think there is only one left out of this litter!
These are the best of the best that Fort Bragg has to offer:
*My favorite consignment shop ~ Humane Society's Ark Thrift Store! Sooooo many treasures!!!! And a separate book section! Score!!!
|My exquisite new pink and iridescent vase!|
|A lovely vintage wall vase...|
|with matching iridescent tones!!|
|They both go perfectly with my atomic pink lamp!|
|A charming beaded coin purse...|
|straight from Hong Kong!!|
A pristine condition treasure!
|Golden brass tissue box cover!|
I've been searching for one for forever!!!
|An un-opened Victoria Holt AND a lovely vintage|
edition MM Kaye??!! Could it get any better??
|Look at this flawless example of pulp fiction artwork!|
I heart the Ark!
*My favorite in-town store ~ It's a tie! Between Bella Mia and Tangents!
Walking into Bella Mia bath and body is like walking into a haven of perfect scents and relaxation. The sweetest of ladies was behind the counter, and helped us with all our needs! It was so pleasant and lovely, we didn't want to leave! I would've bought every item they had for sale, if I wasn't trying to stay on budget. Boo!
|Beautiful orchids at the front counter!|
|and deliciously scented, HANDMADE bath products!|
Bella Mia has it all!
(I would swear the Fiori perfume I got was hand-blended for me!
O my! It is WONDERFUL!!!)
|Presents for the boys back home~|
Sooo gross, but they loved them!
|Following in my grandma's footsteps,|
I like to collect magnets!
These ones made me laugh heartily!!!
|Doesn't every gal need this??|
|The prettiest ballerinas ever!|
A present from Nonie!!
|Nonie on her vintage sectional|
with an adorable pooch by her side!
I can't wait for our next visit!!!
