I attended a Garden Party...You Should Too!

A lovely Sunday afternoon, some friends, a glass of ice tea and SHOPPING!!! What could be better?

Sandra of Under the Sun With Me had posted on her blog about a monthly garden sale the third weekend of each month. So I decided it would be nice to go check it out and get to see Sandra again and chat.

What a lovely venue. Shirley and her husband Jerry own this little cottage with a gated garden/yard calling their venture, The Cottage in the Garden. Shirley and Sandra decorate her house, yard and little backyard shed with lovely art and vintage findings.

A patio table under the tree provides a place of shade and a place to drink tea and talk and laugh.

Of course, I did a little shopping, how could I not? I purchased two beautifully framed pictures of victorian hard to describe. I will save for another post. You can check out the pictures below to see just a bit of what I saw.

The Cottage in the Garden is at 4596 Louisiana St. and opens each Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the 3rd weekend in the month. Check out Sandra's blog for details in that timeframe. I'll try to post something for the next one as a reminder.

I wish I took better pictures, these don't do it justice but you get the idea. So next month when you're looking for something to do in San Diego....a Garden Party might just be the ticket.

Yes, having a ball with the kiddies! They are so precious. Can't wait to see you all and do the paper dollies! Looking forward to some more creative art coming out of the meet up! hugs.
