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.
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).
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). an 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.
you Knew we would.
and the whole alternative nail polish shades?
Very Big in Los Angeles right now.
that *might* well be the first time we’ve ever mentioned Nail Polish here.
