Yesterday my hubby and I made a quick trip to Old Town Orange. We stopped for lunch at a new restaurant Haven and enjoyed mussels, flat bread and an icy cold beer. Then we shopped, we're searching for a farm/harvest table for our patio. The first shop we stopped into was The Victoria Co. All decked-out for autumn the shop was packed to the ceiling (literally) with scrumptious treasures. If you have never been to this shop you must stop by. It's very long and narrow and the merchandise she has is just wonderful. I picked up a birthday gift for a friend and that I could not resist - can't show a photo as she does peek at this blog occasionally. I always enjoy browsing through the Victoria Co. and all the other wonderful shops in this quant town straight out of the past.
One-of-a-kind pillows, vintage treasures and so much more!
She has vintage table cloths in every color scheme - they are so wonderful...
We did not find our table on this trip but we purchased a birthday gift for my nephew who I am visiting next week in MN. We'll keep hunting - that is half the fun!
Have a great week and don't forget to leave a comment on my post below for my 2nd anniversary blog-give away! Hugs,

Summer is coming to a close...the kids go back to school tomorrow. The photo below was the view from our ocean-front vacation home in Newport Beach. The kids had such a great time spending their days playing frisbee, smash-ball, skim boarding and biking into town for pizza. We enjoyed wonderful meals, fruity cocktails and bonfires on the beach. Walking along the board-walk in the evenings and peaking into some of the gorgeous homes inspired us to buy lottery tickets. My friends and I all had our homes picked out should we be the lucky ones. Lottery winners we were not but wonderful memories were made and plans for another trip next year were unanimous. In celebration of my blogs 2 year anniversary I am having a give-away, just a few of my favorite things that I want to share with all of you. I came upon blogging my accident as a searched for tea party information a few years ago. The first blog I was introduced to was The T-Cozy Susan had a wonderful tea house and shop that has since closed but her blog and etsy site remain an inspiration. In honor of my love to shop the Flea Markets the lucky one will receive this adorable bag made from vintage fabric - perfect for that shopping trip.
Also included will be this wonderful book Gardenhouse and these sweet oversize embroidered napkins.
a vintage cookie plate for sweets and for the Dreamer in all of us a little inspiration to keep us chasing after our Dreams no matter what they are!
