Hi~ I don"t know about all of you, but I tend to get stuck in the same places sometimes. I live in the Pasadena area of Southern California and I don't venture out of the immediate surrounding cities too often. I do go see my family in Orange County, but honestly thats about it. I really don't know why because there are so many great places to go that are only minutes away.Well, last Friday I went on a "day trip" with a few friends to Hollywood/Los Angeles. For all of you who know these areas, this is almost laughable. Here are some photos of the "journey".
Our first stop of the day was at Rolling Greens Nursery in Hollywood. It was so beautiful. Don't these flowers look real??? Gorgeous. Unfortunately, we didn't bring our real cameras so all the photos were taken on our iPhones.
Hard to see in this photo , but this wreath had the most beautiful, vibrant ornaments on it. This nursery is located at an old tire shop. Ok, how gorgeous is the sky???? Can't get any better than that.
More fake "Faux" flowers.....
The nursery did have real flowers too, but the majority of things there were housewares and gifty items. It was so beautiful. I was in heaven.
Pretty soap display on the silver platter
This was a wall display.... Can you tell what is hanging here????
Tons of different colored tea bags.This was truly amazing . Who thinks of these things????
Love this just because.
Here are some of the fabulous Christmas items. I really had to control myself. I think I only ended up with 4 ornaments. Not to shabby.
I loved this tree and I think this picture turned out kind of cool with the sunlight coming through the window.
Me and the clock. I WANT THIS CLOCK:) Too bad it was a bit too pricey. Oh well, I enjoyed admiring it.
After we left Rolling Greens we headed to grab something to eat at Joans on Third. The atmosphere of this restaurant was so fantastic. We sat outside and enjoyed the most beautiful day and had lots of laughs. After lunch we headed to a bakery that we had seen on our way to the restaurant. It was called Magnolia Bakery. The picture above is for the bakery. These are Mason Jars filled with different sprinkles. I cant believe we didn't take more pictures because we wanted to buy all their decorations. We were drooling over everything there. It was all done is pastels and it was so....charming. BTW~ They have the most yummy Banana Pudding.
This saying was at Rolling Greens and I love the meaning of this. It can represent creativity, love, friendship, business etc.
I want to thank my friends for making me venture out of the area. I had the best day and can't wait to go back. We saw so many others places to go back and check out.
Welcome to all my new subscribers and thanks to everyone for the nice comments.
Hope you all find some relaxation during this week before Christmas.
