Whew. The fingers ain't what they used to be. Anyhows. Thought I'd share some pictures I took of downtown Riverside shops, a few nights ago.
I love the way these photos came out. All that pink. Simply delightful. Can't help digging it because I'm such a girly girl.
I realize that some may look at this and think that it's too busy in this room but I look about and wish that my house looked just as busy. I think about what a room like this must look, through the eyes of small child.
I wish I knew a stroller sized baby to push around. He or she would tilt their chubby neck and gaze up in awe.
Which reminds me. Recently we were discussing our first trips into It's a Small World at Disneyland in Anaheim. Mine took place at the age of 6. I thought that all those Small World kids were real and spooky. Do six year olds still think this?
Can't have too many parasols. Especially pink ones.
Not sure what those hot pink chopsticks are but I certainly like the effect.
A corner to dream in .
An Eiffel Tower shaped wine rack. Boy I would love to have this even though I don't have an inch to spare for it. Nor do I ever have enough wine around the house at one time to fill this baby up. However, I'm sure I could figure out another use for it. It's pretty tall actually. If I had one of those newer homes with a high ceiling,
I'd wrap it in Christmas lights first of all and then maybe stuff it with pretty roses. Or use it to display ornaments instead of a Christmas tree. Okay, now I REALLY want it. Sigh. No can do.
This window belongs to my beloved store Tiggy Winkles. I flat out want every single thing in this window. No ifs ands or buts. The silver Christmas trees. The repro Santo. The bottle brush tress...speaking of bottle brush trees.
One of my Lollishop friends, Priscilla, is offering these wonderful hand dyed bottle brush trees:
in her Sweet Rememberance Lollishop. Aren't they cute? To get a few of your own click HERE.
I'd love to have a six foot tall blue one.
I especially want this antique, hand embellished with gold, glass fence. I actually ran in the store and asked if it was for sale years ago when I first saw it. Nope. No such luck. Each Christmas it shows up in the holiday window display and I press my nose to the glass to worship and want.
I love this window scene. If you look closely, you'll notice that the Christmas tree on the left is upside down.
I'm eyeballin that glass thingy on the left.
Love this costumed character. She (he?) reminds me of a 1920's boudoir doll.
Here's a close up. A tad blurry but what a wonderful, fun character! Swingin from a beribboned hoop no less.
Oh I think this threesome is sooo cute.
Check out this grand golden angel. She reminds me of something but I can't recall what exactly. A movie perhaps?
A dream more likely.
Wow. Didn't realize how many pictures I really had! I'll be adding comments later and a second post with my remaining photos!
