Combined with our love of junking, paired with the spirit of the road trip, we travel around the West Coast in our Airstream trailer. We scour flea markets, thrift stores, estate & yard sales to bring back lovelies to our vintage shop located in the quaint town of San Luis Obispo, California.
You know that feeling when you are having a really special time with really special people and you wish it could last a really long time? That's exactly what was in store for us this particular eve in October. Friends that share a lot of common interests sent out an invitation to their ranch in the hills of Cayucos. Everything about their surroundings and living area was fantastic! I was able to take a handful of photos, though not too many so I could enjoy the evening and not miss out. With their permission, here is a peek into an amazing adventure of theirs.
One of the outdoor areas--a collection of bowling ball art.
An amazing cactus garden throughout the ranch. The large round table was repurposed from a lid to an old farm water tank.
The chicken coop was made from salvage and because of all the coyote in the area, a custom wired run was made for them.
This was soo clever--anticipating school aged kids, typewriters and paper were set out for their entertainment.
There are two airstreams on the property and a canned ham set up for company.....
The walls inside were patched in perfectly--the left wall was patched with license plates and vintage postcards!
An outdoor shower with a million dollar view...
...and this interior is darling--look at that oven!!
As you can see, this could be a resort. They could have served us PB & J's and it would have been great...although homemade lasagna and fix-ins and pie was what was whipped up...
We do A LOT of reading at The Rose. Shakespeare? Hemingway? L'Amour? Nope, we are talking Vogue, House Beautiful, Anthology, Folk...the list is endless! Beautifully styled and artfully laid out, these pages can put us in so many landscapes and environments. While flipping through a mountain of magazines, we pulled a few photos that made us swoon--thought you may too!
