Wonderful Wednesday

I had made a date to meetup with Bonnie P. since I hadn't seen her for awhile now. She didn't get to art meetup last month and she flying out for her daughter's graduation next art meetup so we decided do some shopping and lunch.

I have never been to Anthropologies (I know, how could I have waited this long?) so we agreed to meet there and have some fun.

OOOOh what beautiful vignettes they have to display their goods. I had sooo much fun snapping pictures and window shopping.













We also hit Barnes & Nobles for our new Somerset Life Magazine with a great article on La Maison Rustique and lovely eye candy. Can't wait to snuggle in and read the magazine and take it all in.

We hit Paper, Paper? Lovely papers and you know those gag gifts like Husband Remote Control, funny altoid tins, etc. They had those so it was fun reading and laughing over those things.

So we parted ways and I was so happy to have time with Bonnie and hear all about her busy life. Thanks for the fun day Bonnie!

I continued down the Highway and remembered that Mel and Gloria had talked about a place in Solano Beach called Bon Bons so I decided to take a short cut (ha) off the freeway and stop in for a quick look.

I was not disappointed. Beautiful vintage furniture and "comment vous dites" (how you say) kitschy things. Check out some of the pictures. Lots of religious statues, shells, iron and more.










I only have a little time so I told them "I'll be back". Check it out if you're in town. Then you can go on down into the Cedros area...more beautiful eye candy.

Have an artful day!

Love Anthropologie! Is BonBon's on Highway 101 or Pacific Coast Hwy or what ever they call it, going north from Loma Sante Fe? Looks very worthy of a trip.

Whachabuy?
