In May, Dan and I traveled to Carlsbad, California and explored the beach village.
Check out the beach-inspired advertising.
This has to be the cutest law office I've ever seen.
That day we had lunch at 83 degrees.
I enjoyed the color scheme and style of the restaurant.
An assortment of beer taps are strung along the ceiling
with an interesting light fixture.
We found an antique shop that had some neat things: this cutie-pie paper weight,
a burlap covered dress form displaying brooches,
this ornate little boy framed piece,
a basket made of safety pins, beads and pearls,
Scrabble and other letters mixed to make words,
and a rhinestone necklace for the jar.
It was refreshing for me to see new ideas from across the country. I experienced sticker shock as things are more expensive in California. They are probably worth it though as there is a nice twist to their ideas. These are treasures I brought home with me.
Have you been to Carlsbad, California? It is PARADISE there!
