Here is an example of some of the shots from the photoshoot Ellie Mae had.
aren't they pretty? 


Meanwhile, in the more mundane department...I'm still trying to find a countertop that I like...why is it so hard

A guy at a swap meet told me that here in the state of California they have outlawed the glues, so the new laminate counter tops are crappy to begin with.

I got a sample of this pattern ...but I think it has more of a 70's nope, that won't work.

Hmmm..I may have to hunt in Arizona, since I go there often.
Maybe some old store has a secret stash of vintage formica.

(well, a girl can dream, right?) the flooring department,
nothing happening there either. 
I saw this trailer for sale on Ebay..and look at that floor!

 If that's original, it's in amazing shape!
I really want to find this exact style...the colors are perfect.

This is also cute..but maybe too busy?

Fun Finds!

 I met Bunny for a new (to me anyway) 
Flea Market in Orange. 
It's a smaller one, but full of goodies and free to get in!
We might be vendors there in May, if I have anything left to sell

I scored a vintage metal chair that I have been hunting for, it's just the perfect amount of old and new. 
It's been repainted about 100 times, and there is a bit of rust, so in other words, 
it's perfect! Comfy too. 

I also got a little set of canisters..
I love them but I found a set I like better, so up for sale they go!

(Click here if you want them)
Here's the set I got down in Palm Desert. 
They match my stuff better. 
I couldn't resist the Fresh Egg sign either.

Still need a countertop and a backsplash. There is a new line of retro laminate out that I am waiting on a sample of. 
It seems like there is always something left to do.

Like CAMP for instance!

Phoebe is ready..

 I'm ready for summer and some hot weather.
The beach is calling!

1st Photo Shoot

It's off to the beach for us... 
on the most
gorgeous day you could ask for!

(yes, as a matter of fact,
everyone in California 
DOES look like this ^)

it's pretty nice here! 
I wish we were camping. :0)

The Archive crew got to work 
dolling up the trailer...

the photographer & models 
starting shooting...

so it was time to let 
them do their thing...

while we enjoyed
 the view and the sunshine...

and new friends.

We wished we had brought 
a cooler and a BBQ...
we'll be better prepared next time!

We wrapped it up at sunset. 
 It was the end of a gorgeous day.
I can't wait to see the photos
Stephanie the pro took.
Her work is amazing.
