Investopedia explains "Pop-Up Retail":

The term "pop-up" refers to the short-term duration of the stores, which "pop up" one day and are gone the next.


Thank you to Brooks Antiques for hosting us for our Pop-up shop! We set up in the parking lot and had a blast! 

Pop-up shops are popping up all over cities across the country--in store fronts, trucks, and trailers.
With internet shopping and advertising challenges, this has been a really convenient way of getting exposure for small businesses.

Check out a few pop-up shops we've seen!


This Saturday!

A Memorable Evening

Posted on: Monday, November 26, 2012

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... 

...and the sunset was ordered special!


Read and Feed

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!

Perfection. Do. Not. Disturb!

Bottom Right: These knobs area great DIY


Don’t mind if I do!

A super cool chair for you to sit down and rest after coming down from all those stairs.


So many elements in this room (below):
-great lighting

It works perfectly. Beautiful while inviting. 

And this magazine ends with beautiful food—chocolate. A chocolate buttermilk layer cake!


Thanks Giving!

For our Thanksgiving week question, we asked:

Fresh green beans or the green bean casserole with the crispy onion rings???

Lisa- Casserole, I know you're not supposed to say that!
Brooke- Always fresh.
Molly- Fresh, oh but the more I think about, fresh.
Nancy- Fresh, with bacon and thai chiles.
Ginger- Personally, fresh, but I make the casserole for the family.
Coral- Fresh, I've never had the casserole.
Judy- Fresh.
Nate- Fresh.
Stephanie- Can I have both??

(via MediterrAsian)

Well, there you have it, fresh takes it.  

Which ever you and yours have, have a wonderful day! 
We, are thankful for you!
