"CC and Me"

     I received a call on Friday morning, "Hey Rita I would like to take you to a really nice spot in Avila Beach for lunch tomorrow." And boy what a fabulous day Cecy had planned for me... Just to give you a glimpse...

Entering WoodStone Marketplace at Avila Village

My friend CC

 Delicious chicken pasta salad

Turkey-Cranberry Sandwich

 Vintage plates
[I found some like these earlier last year]

Pair of vintage lamps

I love transforming these beauties with some white paint!

     It truly was a magical day with a special friend who also loves thrifting, as well as, discovering some new beautiful spots to relax, eat and shop on California's Central Coast. Thanks for dropping by and I hope you'll return to see the lamps after I re purpose them. 

     Until next time happy collecting, thrifting and discovering new places in your neck of the woods!

  1. Sounds like great fun! Looking forward to see the lamps when you have added your touch- have a great week - Colette x

  2. It was everything I didn't imagine and more...especially the thought. I'm working on the lamps now and I hope to find some nice lampshades from Pottery Barn. Thanks Colette and as's great hearing from you.:)

    Hugs Rita
