Coming out of Seclusion

Yes, it's been a while! A combination of life and laziness took over the past couple of months and I just did not set aside time to post updates. But with a new season arriving (I love fall!) the shop is gearing up for some new inventory. Here is a sneak peak of some upcoming fall merchandise:

LA Heat

Yep, summer is officially here and the 100 degree weather is confirming this. Some things we did this weekend to try and beat the heat were watching a movie in a nice and cool movie theater and leaving our spot in between mountains and heading to Downtown Los Angeles for the very first LA Flea Market. Although it was still warm, there was at least a nice breeze which you don't find when you are living in a valley.

The flea market was definitely less overwhelming than the Pasadena Rose Bowl flea market. There were some great vendors as well as an array of food trucks! I'm excited about some of the finds for the store. Check out these lovely shoes coming soon to the shop.

Full campgrounds, insect bites, and unexpected rain. The natural wonders that surrounded me during my weekend camping trip in the Sequoia National Forest surpassed these small setbacks.

As expected, the Sequoia trees left me in awe. I originally feared bears visiting our campsite at night, but luckily we had none. Instead, we had a friendly passing with a blonde bear eating grass in Crescent Meadow. Speaking of meadows, Sequoia National Forest is full of them. I can understand why Hale Tharp, a miner during the Gold Rush, built a home within a Sequoia log near Crescent Meadow. Below is a photo of his humble abode hailed as "Tharp's Log."

Lastly, I have to say the most memorable experience of the weekend for me was seeing a shooting star. When you are up in the Sierra Nevadas, you feel so much closer to the stars. It's absolutely beautiful.

The Passing of Time

How did July get here so fast? We are already halfway through 2010. It's a little frightening how quickly time passes. Celebrating another birthday really came sooner than I thought and I can't help but ponder on how close I am getting to the next decade of my life!

Speaking of birthdays, today is Frida Kahlo's! She would have been 103!

Weekend of Celebrations

It's been a jam-packed weekend, starting with yours truly's birthday celebrations on the 2nd and 3rd and a day with friends and fireworks on the 4th. I am finally getting a chance to just catch up today, but much needed preparation for the Sequoia get away next week is underway.

One nice surprise I had over the weekend was one of my listings being featured on a fellow Etsian's treasury.

Here is the dress that was featured:


Check it out at Elisaloves Treasury, dedicated to stars and stripes! In honor of the 4th of July!
