Adventures in Shopping

Isn't it wonderful!? Elizabeth and I spent the day looking at new furniture, and finally found the perfect piece for her nursery, at an antique store, naturally. The doors are tied shut in this photo, but it has all of it's original hardware and lots of nifty nooks and crannies inside the desk; which, when opened with supports, she plans to use for a changing table. Just wait till we're finished with it, it's going to be wonderful.

She found it at Main Street Antiques, in Betty Sue's booth, of course.

Next door (to Main Street Antiques), we visited a new-ish boutique that had been closed the last time we were in Turlock, but was open this day, and we were so very pleased that they were. Vintage Rose Interiors, it's called. Don't you love the little treasures that I found there?
These fabulous clock drawer pulls are destined for my guest room, I think {maybe}. I would hate to think that I have to go out and buy a new piece of furniture to go with new drawer pulls. :}

Love this little tag, handmade by the store's owner.

Everyone knows that I have a thing for Bees {my name is Debra after all}. Is there one among you whom I have not told that the Bible definition of Debra is; the Bee, the seeker? This little pendant is only about 1/2" wide. The back side has the words, "just be".

Vintage Rose Interiors is just getting their website and blog up and running, but I'm including the links anyway. Always like to support small business! {November 7, 2009 update: Sadly Vintage Rose Interiors has closed. I understand they are working on a new equally exciting artist cooperative venture. Here's hoping!}

After our shopping adventures, which you will have to agree were pretty terrific, we stopped for a quick snack at The Bistro 234. We dined on the patio on this gorgeous Spring day, largely because we were dragging a three year old boy around, and outdoors seemed like a pretty good idea {it was}, and he deserved a lemonade break. We treated ourselves to their scrumptious lemonade and bruschetta, and had the bestest topper our day could have had. Gotta tell you, the little guy was terrific. It wouldn't have been as much fun without him.

Instead of a thirty minute drive to Turlock, it felt as if we had ventured to Monterey. It was positively lovely. Next time, you should go with us!
