library book sale, roses, chandelier – and a gift wrap lesson from @yolksilverlake

darlings

we’re Exhausted (in a very good way).

we drove…….*looksvaguelyintothemiddledistance*…….well, a long way, anyway

and there were lovely things to see, as one might expect.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

a carousel (or as the Americans call them – a Merry-Go-Round) and one of those whirly-fans.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

an Italian baroqueness of a chandelier – we adore a chandelier – at Victori Ana (read it quickly, it took us a few moments) in Montrose (no website! if you want to visit here’s the RL address:

2311 Honolulu Ave, Montrose, CA

an exceedingly Pretty “home accents” shop with french soaps, scented candles and decorative place settings – we’re going to try and persuade george to come with us in November – they take a week – and three members of staff – to Decorate For The Holidays – we received a personal invite (you’re so clever, yes, the chandelier-gazing did it, darlings). OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

we popped in to the friends-of-littlerock-library book sale (ok, we drove 100 miles seduced by the concept of driving on pearblossom highway – not a pear or a blossom for miles until we saw these gorgeous blowsy roses in a jam jar). OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAan Amusing Amount of Georgette Heyer for sale (somebody clearly just went cold turkey in littlerock – or received an e-reading-digital-device for their Birthday).

talking of home accents shops (which we were a few moments ago – the caption with the chandelier if you missed it) – we’ve Always been Impressed by how Nicely they wrap everything at Yolk in silver lake.

so we decided to ask for a Demo.

yes, we filmed it.

come on.

you Knew we would.

impressive, right?

and the whole alternative nail polish shades?

Very Big in Los Angeles right now.

*ironiclooktocamera*

that *might* well be the first time we’ve ever mentioned Nail Polish here.

fancy that.

    Now one does love a library sale… but Georgette Heyer in that heat!?!
    The Regency Bucks must have been perspiring most awfully.

  2. The library book sales in Sierra Madre are full of treasures… I picked up a beautiful hard bound copy from the fifties of Brillat-Savarin’s Physiology of Taste, so beautiful I ended up giving it to a foodie friend! Although I could have used the wrapping lesson as I am known for handing people presents in plain brown paper bags.

do say something - do :-)
