Pop-Up

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!

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.

IMG_0267
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!

...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!

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!

Brooke- Always fresh.
Molly- Fresh, oh but the more I think about it....no, 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??
