The Cherry Drops - Let's Bug Out

      I love the vintage style and black and white.   By Vern Shank and The Cherry Drops. 

I Love the Smell of Leather

I love the smell of vintage leather. I don't care if it is old leather or new leather. The things you can do with leather are amazing. Everything from saddles to boots to boho purses to leather straps and whips and restraints.........Oh dear I really have to stop reading 50 Shades of Gray.  Oh my, sorry about that.

Big Sur & Your Woody

Who Doesn't Love An Old Woodie?  Remember driving down the winding coast of California?  Those winding roads leading down to Big Sur, your surfboard all waxed up and ready to go catch a few waves. Loving that feeling of flying on the crystal blue water. Walking through the Redwoods in Big Sur State Park. Driving over the Bixby bridge. Pacific Coast Highway is just so beautiful. Sounds like a road trip to me. 

Enjoy the pics.  

Here is a few fun photos of old wooden station wagons. I love that nostalgic feeling they bring back. When life seemed a little simpler. 

Bixby Bridge in Big Sur

Catching the right wave.

The Amazing Redwoods. 
The amazing coast line.
Latte anyone?

Spring time on the coast.

Yes the windy roads are thrilling.

Fleas In Paris......Oh My.

Flea Markets in Paris are the best. But the ones in England aren't bad either. Just bring your wallet.
A few tips to follow: if you are looking for specific items for you home, write it down and take any measurements you need with you. Always carry a "loop" or magnifying glass to read the markings on small items. If you are looking for a discount....be polite to the stall attendant. They work hard and long hours. I have done it myself so I can sympathize.  Do not insult them or you can kiss the discount goodbye. Carry a large bag with your own wrapping.  Also bring a pad, pencil, tape measure and bottle of water. Then enjoy the "hunt".

Flea Markets in Spring Time. what more could a girl ask for?

Gilded frames anyone?

Even Madonna can have fun.

Not only antiques but the farmers market is the best.

A little wine wouldn't hurt.

Who doesn't love a French purse?
