Kim and I went shopping over the weekend to get some home prouducts and to purchase some vintage clothes . So with our coffees in hand we walked up and down Abbot Kinney blvd. and found this amazing little cottage. Tumbleweed & Dandelion. So we went in and we loved every details of this amazing place ! I love the signs and thought the cottage decor was a perfect mix of shabby chic with beachy chic. I enjoyed the bedroom where we found some amazing fabrics that I will be using for some pillows and throws for my Etsy shop. I loved the distress Venice beach signs they had everywhere and some really cool girls asked us to take there pictures. The white distressed chest was aged to perfection. And the linens were thick and priced well. I loved the stack of pillows on the bed and thought , I could live here ! Onward to the outside where the decor was as amazing as the inside ! Well if you make it to Venice Beach make sure you stop by and see this beachy chic cottage. Kim and I will be doing a lot more shopping here. Next post more shops from Venice Beach !
The Vintage Market place in Rainbow California was an amazing experience. I enjoyed every minute of this wonderful event. The theme was boho beach and I was impresses by all the amazing booths all in one place. I loved all the beautiful vintage displays but one of my favorites was Seahouse design by Lynda Lairmone from Irvine( 1st four photos). I loved her colors of gray and turquoise with her shells. I had to buy one of her market bags and she give me a great price !
Thanks Lynda !
I wore a 1960’s dress and basket bag with my boho shoes and shell necklace. I was surprise I sold all my vintage basket bags and hats, and all my white frames the 1st day so I had to go home and bring back my rack of clothes.
I work the show for John & Fab of Vintage Vendetta from Lake Elsinore, where I have my boutique space and I loved every minute of meeting and greeting the customers and I made some new like-minded friends.
Another one of my favorites booths was Mora’s Antiques also from Lake Elsinore.
Her display of jewelry was outstanding. Most of her jewelry is antique.
I had to take a picture of this pretty lady by my booth who came back the second day to buy one of my vintage earrings. Her outfit was vintage perfection.
Wow, I am inspired !!

I took these photos in Old Town Lake Elsinore, I love the old white wood buildings with the overgrown grass. I used simple props , vintage suitcases, a chalkboard and red roses. It was about 1pm and the natural light was perfect. I didn’t have to lighten , just contrast for a perfect picture. I am going to make postcards out of these and send them out.
