I am back from a whirlwind trip to Sunny San Diego!
I was born and raised in California
but this was my first visit to
the gorgeous sun drenched San Diego...
What an absolutely beautiful city!
So many wonderful places to walk, shop and dine
surrounded by gorgeous architecture & just a few steps from the beach.
The downtown section is so charming
I loved the historic buildings and old character.
It reminded me so much of San Francisco which I love to visit as well
(but with better weather!)
We enjoyed delicious food in Little Italy
and just up the street from the restaurant
I saw chunky, chippy, peely remnants
out in front of a shop and had to investigate...
It was an architectural salvage shop...
well... you know I had to go in.
Loved this door...
The old different colored glass panes
and chunky wood details~
There were so many neat remnants of old homes,
tons of old fireplace surrounds and chunky corbels.
The details on these pieces in this bin were amazing.
I found a truckload of things I would love to have brought home
but the prices weren't too friendly.
We popped over to Coronado for a bit in the morning...
what a gorgeous area!
The architecture was wonderful- an old area with lots of charm.
Of course the palm trees, sandy beaches and beautiful blue skies
and perfect weather weren't so bad either!
The Cheap Sally Dance party at the Stingaree
and a peek at the
Gordon Ramsay line at Kmart!!
Happy Monday Everyone!
