Recently I’ve been aching for a change of scenery and to just get away for a short period of time. Sometimes I feel like I am way too attached to technology (cough cough, my iPhone) that I don’t seem to appreciate what is around me.
It’s crazy how a short one hour drive brings you to a whole different world where everything from the culture to surroundings can be quite different.
So off we drove to Idyllwild. All I could think of upon seeing these horses was: “The Huns are coming!” 😛 Why, I do not know.
As you know I am a huge vintage fan, the cabin was filled with little trinkets and decor from decades ago!
Doesn’t that just look like it’s been pulled out of a scene from the 80’s? Most definitely. There’s just something really comforting about things that remind you of your childhood. I would say reminiscing is one of my fortes. 😉
Of course, my favorite part of the kitchen was this teal green stove and oven, that looked too cute too be real! Could it be a real life doll oven?! Or noooo.
As cute as this all was, I could not wait to go to town and explore the shops and sights! So off we went… First stop, gelato!
I loved all the shops made of wooden panels, and the hustle and bustle of the town. Let me tell you, I really fell in love with this…. Ready for it? PURPLE building! It was just so fun-looking. It really was freezing though, which was apparent by looking around at all the people bundled in their finest winter attire. Did someone say North Face? Beanies? Knit scarves? Check, check, and check. What better way to warm your hands and heart than….. A good ol’ latte.
What I love best about mom-and-pops coffee shops is the vast array of people they bring in, especially this being a tourist town. I definitely spent a while sipping my perfectly brewed latte and people-watching.
It was great to be in a different world for a day. 🙂
Until next time,
Hello my loves,
I’m so excited to share today’s post with you all! With summer rolling around and nothing but time on your hands (time, who has that these days?), I just know you are looking for a fun diy to inspire those creative juices in you! I had the privilege of being joined by one of my friends to be in this post and photos together. We had seen multiple types of flower crowns that seem to be all the rage right now, and who would blame anyone when they are just insanely cute?! Well, we decided that we should make some ourselves!
My friend is so great at putting things like this together without needing any instructions. We started out with lots and lots of flowers. I suppose you could almost say there was a little garden growing inside where we were creating.
The vines from the eucalyptus were what served as our “crown,” if you would like to call it that. We used crafting wire to fixate the flowers into place. I couldn’t be happier with the final product! Once placing the crown on your head, you can also push some extra flowers in to cover all the places that seem a bit empty or to be missing some flowers.
I suppose if you’re not living in the big city, you don’t have an excuse to prance around town wearing these brightly colored accessories. Nevertheless, we flaunted these masterpieces of ours as we went around town exploring. Don’t you worry, we did get a few questioning stares and looks.
I mean, how else would I have found a magical windy park in a scorching hot city? Or better yet, a tree that is covered in eyes? “Big Brother is Watching You.” 😉
Of course, I don’t believe there is such a thing as having too much fun, so fun is what was had.
As always, I had a wonderful day and I hope you enjoyed coming along on this adventure with me!
Until next time…
