Short 'n Sweet Road Trip

Posted on: Friday, September 28, 2012

The mister and I have been threatening to get the cobwebs off the trailer and hit the road and finally...we burned rubber! John had the inside clean and sparkly, he chose the linens (not bad!), and had the new target cutting board (US!) on board.


Our destination was Hwy 49--gold country. Along this highway are a lot of little towns, each hosting its own little flavor, some wine, some arts, some antiques and some gold panning. All worth a lil stop.


As far as camping, there are so many highways that cross 49 and go up into the trees, lakes and rivers... that's where we go. The roads are ah-mazing! 


This trip was filled with fruit stands, a sale here and there, coffee, and mostly naps and reading. Perfect!

So the saying goes, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."'s as simple as that. We love Free People--the most current styles are of the 70's. We love feelings of love, freedom and peace.

We feel that we have that same inspiration here at The Rose. We who work here are mostly children of the 70's (some may have been teenagers of the 70's)--maybe this is why it feels so comfortable within the pages of their catalogs.

Our imitations, were a blast to re-create. Our photographer, Jenn Young, was in town for a few and we grabbed our models Kelsea, Hayden, Eva and our own Ruby to bring these looks to life.

"We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard of just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep on watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it." - John Lennon
