To Cali And Back

 We returned from a trip to California on Saturday evening.  I like everything about my Scion XB except the rock hard seats - OUCH!  This is Mt. Shasta, taken through a dirty windshield at 65 MPH.  Thank you little smart phone!
 Yes, I tortured The Husband with a little junking.  There was no shortage of antique shops but most were full-on retail so not much buying but always fun to look!

 The pink salt and pepper shakers, the green and white enamel pan and the yellow Fiesta pitcher will be staying with me.  The pitcher was a gift from the MIL's house.  She said she had no emotional attachment to it.  I said that is a good thing because I was falling in love with it. The rest is in search of it's forever homes.
 We spent the night in Weed CA both ways.  No, this is not one of our vises (we have plenty of others!) but we thought it was pretty funny and clever that the town was capitalizing on their name the way they were.  We contributed to their economy by picking up plenty of souvenirs. The town was actually named after a man called Abner Weed.
On our last night we stopped at The Mt. Shasta Brewery.  Yes, that IS one of our vises!  I asked the waitress if it was okay to take some pictures and she offered to take a picture of us in front of the bar.  I love the little guy photo-bombing us on the left side of the picture.
Two little love birds sitting in a tree, K.I.S.S.I.N.G!

I love that photo of the two of you.

Lots of fun finds, but my favorite this week is what I think are bed springs. They look all wonky and could be so much fun to play with.

What a cute picture of the two of you...or should I say, the three of you. It always amazes me that Mt. Shasta has that much snow so late in the summer. You sure found some fun goodies; don't blame you for wanting to keep a few of them.
