We have arrived at Part Two.
And we have arrived in style.
I fell in love with this little car, which reminded
me of my very first car....
a Volkswagen Beetle...
Our son, who loves vintage cars
(and owns a vintage car...American make),
informed me that this is a Citroen 2CV...
the French version of the Bug...made from
1948 - 1990.
All I can say "wish it was mine"
I would drive it VERY carefully.
Gals, have a glass of wine,
get comfortable and enjoy more of
And after a few bottles, you might want to start saving them
to make an interesting chandelier.
You got to start somewhere.
You have to have some set of doors for these
In my next life I want this in big.....
unfortunately, I get VERY seasick.
These would fit nicely in our home when I 'm in
my red phase.
Again an interesting use of shells.
Love all the different shapes. They had many more.
Now this bin would be perfect for gardening things,
tools, pots, bulbs, etc., but since I am not that tall,
I would need a ladder.
They had antique ones too.
What I actually did take home was a vintage
olive gathering bucket.
I could see this mirror on a dresser with a collection of
perfume bottles on it.
Crazy, funky...just wonderfully weird.
Men's best friend was not forgotten.
Oh yes, I could do this....
Oh soooo elegant.
This is sheer luxury!!!!!
And if you want and need storage,
this would hold tons of goodies.
How do they come up with these settings?
The people at Lillian August are truly talented
to take these everyday items and make them look
so inviting, intriguing and special.
Do you remember how charming these looked
filled with herbs right at the entrance?
They are huge.
Wonder what they were actually used for.
Lots more charming storage.
These cotton ribbons are wonderful.
I purchased some and also tiny clips.
So, take time to appreciate all that is beautiful.....and.....

it will remain with you
all the days of your life"

I hope you enjoyed part two of our outing.
Next we are going to another of my absolute
new favorite places,
Until next time....
