Good afternoon on this beautiful sunny Monday, April 16th, 2012

It has been so long since I have updated my blog..... hope some of you are still here!
I am happy to say that we are still creating our beautiful lines of vintage textile garments and of course, our cottage furnishings.
The precious little shop "The Attic", in Coronado, has been very good to us. I am there several days a week with my goods and of course a fabulous unique selection of vintage as well as new jewelry. Each of us girls bring something new to the shop everyday. The intimacy of the shop is so soothing and inviting, I would love to see you there and share some time with you.
I have been invited again to participate in the Victorian show, May 18th through the 20th.  If you have never attended this wonderful event, you definitely should, I know all of you would enjoy the beautiful home of Michelle Smoley.  Michelle opens up her home to showcase all that is Victorian and delicious!
The boutique hours are: Friday and Saturday 9 to 6.  Sunday 9 to 4.
The address is: 2303 Mesa Dr., Oceanside, 92054
            Hope to see you there!  Shirleanne.

Exciting new ventures...

We are so happy to share with everyone...there is a brand new shop in Ocean Beach, Vintage Revivals. It is right there on Newport,where I have so many friends. Rebecca Russell and her husband Dan opened up in style this week and I have the cutest little "Cottage " room in is much like what I have always done,with sweet vintage furnishings and of course, my delicious vintage linen jackets.

O.k....if that is not enough!!!! My very dear friends at the Attic in Coronado ( you know them)  Nancy, Jane and Kandi...well, they have so generously given  me an opportunity to join them inthe sweetest little shop in town. We will feature our garments.vintage jewelry and romantic furnishings there. As things are scheduled at this time, I will be in the shop (that's the one on Tenth) on Mondays and Thursdays. I would be thrilled to have you come by and of course you will want to visit the Orange Ave. location as well, both stores are adorable. I will try to post some photos soon . Hope to see you soon...Love to ya....

Another beautiful event in the Cottage in the Garden

We were blessed with the wonderful feelings of a very light summer for the two days, and the sweet smell of my roses. Each time there are vendors in the garden I experience  a deeper connection with each of the girls that participate there, and my life is richer for that. Sherry and Laurel showed incredible garden furnishings and a nice selection of vintage art... my old friend Dee Cook was here too. We shared many stories of our old days at The Corner Store and she sold grand pieces of architectural salvage. Jude came too... and of course I love all of her rose themed treasures.
