I love California Part 1

Ceekay, did you lose part of your mind in Cali???? a toilet seat?
I have never seen this, but they automatically put on a toilet seat protector!!
Now, that is way cool!

Our first stop, Brighton outlet! I had to control myself though...I still have a lot of shopping ahead of me!

These are the sidewalks in San Dimas....it is really like a cowboy town.




Love the split rail fences....

Stopping at some antique stores...Marty, Karen and me!



Lots of pink!

this one is for my hubby....he loves his antique caddys....


I loved the architecture of this old building.



Look at the tin ceiling and wide tin molding.






This fantastic birdhouse was in the Feed and Seed store...


Gloria...this is for you! I have never seen the miniture hat boxes and hats before....so I squealed when I saw this.

Then we went for a ride up in the Mountains...



Ok, I will stop here for now...the weather was GORGEOUS! Part 2 coming soon......if I don't pack up my bag and go back!

CeeKay , it seems you had a wonderful time on your visit. I cannot believe the toilet seat covers!! That is awesome. Wish we had those around here. I put about 20 layers if I go anywhere other than home.

CK, this is just too much, but actually Love Bunny and I were perusing Home Depot the other day and I saw a toilet that can flush 10 golf balls and decided that's the one I want, sugar! I swear they come a long way with toilet, but I want one that can flush anything, clean itself (yep, they DO have ones that guarantee cleaner pots!) and take out the smell, chick!! I love what I'm seeing though with paper automatically deposited on the seat. WOW
xoxo,
Connie

I love San Dinas one of my favorite places to antique shop...I think I feel a trip coming on girl...Hope you had a great weekend...I'm exhausted after company for 3 days ha ha!! still have to do all the laundry...thanks for coming by my Dear friend...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria
