Faces at King Richard’s Antiques

In Whittier, a town here in sunny Southern California, there resides the state’s largest antique store, King Richard’s Antique Center. If you haven’t yet been, I highly recommend… pack a lunch, take a friend or venture out solo as I generally do, and plan on wandering about for hours while you’re transported back to a […]

SueBee has a little retail shop!

I’ve been making handcrafts, photo note cards, framed art, and refurbishing furniture for quite a few years. My oldest daughter, Angelika, and I were selling it on the internet via our Artisan Unique website. We determined selling online is far too time consuming, though, so we transitioned. I decided to go solo and test the retail […]

Stepping Back in Time

I took a small detour on my way to the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in San Marino the other day, sidetracking myself along part of the old Route 66. I’m fascinated by vintage things, historical spots, places that were and take every chance to seek out whenever possible. The pictures in this gallery, of […]

Patch Job

Kat and I visited downtown Los Angeles weekend before last. We got off the northbound 5 freeway at 7th Street, and headed across town via surface streets. We entered an industrial area with graffiti lined walls and fascinating old buildings. Noticing a photo shoot in progress, I pulled over and looked back. My eye was immediately captured by the patch work on the […]

Retro Crystal Cove

What could be better than a gorgeous Southern California beach…. until you toss in a few historic beach cottages, an on-the-sand restaurant, cocktail bar, museum, and gift shop! It’s all discretely tucked away at Crystal Cove State Park, along Pacific Coast Highway (better known as PCH) south of Corona del Mar, north of Laguna Beach. I’d […]

Eat Here! Philippe’s

French Dip sandwiches at Philippe’s are the best. I’ve been going to Philippe’s in downtown Los Angeles since I was a little kid, and it hasn’t changed (thankfully, it hasn’t changed!). My memories were refreshed this past weekend when I walked over from Olvera Street for lunch. Yup, it’s just as I remembered… wood shavings […]

Talking Heads of Another Era

Cable TV and I parted company quite some time ago, but prior to tossing in the cable box, I’d seen enough of the talking heads on TV for the expression to stick in my head. For those not familiar with the term talking heads, it refers to the so-called experts who blab on and on, […]

Once Upon a Time

When you walk into an antique store, you walk back in time…you experience history through tangible objects. It’s fascinating seeing knick-knacks, toys, clothing, decor, and art from various eras, all in one place…it’s like several history lessons all in one shopping trip! Despite being from the Millennial generation, I’ve always had a passion for old […]

Blast to the Past

Randomly stopped by Old Town Orange with a friend to snap a few shots with the Nikon. I love the Vintage atmosphere of the town! We started off with a traditional hamburger and fries lunch at a 50’s style diner called Watson’s Drug Store, then explored the numerous antique shops and boutiques. Such a fun […]

Quirky Buildings

Trying to imagine the architect’s sense of humor when designing some of the odd buildings throughout our area makes me laugh. I visualize his or her facial expression while showing off the drafts to their customers. Is the customer smiling, choking, rolling on the floor laughing? Is it a joke? Promotion gag? Marketing ploy? How […]

Old Towne Orange, a walk back in time

Haven’t been to SoCal’s Old Towne Orange? If you love retro atmosphere and throw-back, you simply must go! Where else can a person experience flocks of wild parrots circling overhead, making a crazy loud racket, a cute young lady in a pink linen dress, pillbox hat, and toting a tiny birdcage as her purse walking past, motorcycles buzzing by heading […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
