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.

more Garden Walk moments

Oh my....Rita was right there with her camera and as you can see...sweet VANE . That is better than ice cream!!!

Point Loma Garden Walk

We could not have ordered a more perfect day with sunshine and the beautiful ocean to soothe us. The gardens were so lovely and we saw so many friends. I was especially happy to have my niece Vanessa here to be with me and together with many well wishers for my precious Jerry.  He is just fine and getting a break from all my creative is so very good to have had so much support and concern..thank you all.
