Just outside of San Fransisco there is a lovely little town called San Anselmo. My husband wanted to stop here because he had seen an episode of Diner's, Drive-in's and Dives where they featured a terrific little diner called Bubba's. So we had lunch at Bubba's Diner, where I proceeded to stuff my face with lobster ravioli. (Yes, you heard me right. that's one of the reasons they were on the show!) Any way, as we drove in I caught a glimpse of wjat looked like the most wonderful little shop. I knew after lunch I was going to have to go check it. So while my DH was finishing off his lunch (and the rest of my ravioli) I grabbed my camera and headed off down the sidewalk.
What a feast for the eyes! I have been wanting for some time to remove most of the color in my house. I just adore the neutrals!!! There are some naysayers who believe beige and white are boring or "safe". Just look at this (non) color scheme!!! It's so full of wonderful texture and depth.
I absolutely fell in love with this pillow but (sigh) it was a little (a lot) out of my budget.
There were some fabulous ideas here. Like this little cloche that I'm sure was a cheese tray in a previous life!
The chandeliers were lovely.
I especially liked this one. I don't know where I saw it, but someone along my trip had taken sheet music and wrapped it around the candle stems. Great idea!!!
This little box was so pretty. I might have to borrow the idea and make one for myself!!! Well that's the french nest! Next time I'll post some of the GORGEOUS pictures of the Northern California coast.
