sea door

on a recent sea glass hunt, I discovered a lovely sea door leading to a secret beach home.

the hues were muted and blended with perfection

i could only imagine what the home with the perfect door was like....

Meet me at the beach!

We've just unpacked a bonanza of Hawaiiana!

Before hitting the beach you might like a new pair of classic vintage sunglasses...

or perhaps an Aloha shirt, perfect as a beach cover up...

something for your little grass shack...

a surfboard!

we've even got a bike to take it all with you!

for all things beachy ~ come see Whimsy on 7th!

see you at the beach!

Summerland Mercantile Garden Sale

My friend and I headed to a lovely vintage and hand-crafts sale

in a garden hosted by Summerland Mercantile.

Check out the gorgeous birdbath in their veggie garden and the kewpie doll

guarding the growing plants!

Everything was displayed beautifully and we had a great time browsing the treasures and kicking back in the garden enjoying fruit salad and fresh muffins.
I can't wait for the next one! I will keep you posted.

my mother's day

a hike across the lovely bluffs to the beach was the way I spent my morning,

accompanied by my husband and daughter

(who surprised me coming home from college) and her boyfriend.

Cayla and Tony headed down the trail on the way to the bluffs.

The day ended perfect, as well--when my husband drove the kids back to LA, and I
enjoyed a nice dinner out with my son! A lovely Mother's Day, indeed.

Mother's Day at Whimsy Antiques

I made lots of mini bouquets to give to our Whimsy customers on Mother's Day.

Here was our first customer, and we were in awe how her clothing matched the bouquet we randomly gave her!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!!
