After a relatively uneventful plane trip I arrived in LA at about noon and Ki had the day planned out.
We were headed to the Beach!!!
Above we are enjoying this collection of cocktail shakers at a local Santa Monica Restaurant.
The Pacific Ocean, It's been a long time since I've seen you.
We decided to step out of our comfort zone and ride the Ferris Wheel to get a better view.
Isn't it beautiful
What a great place to take in the view, and the weather was beautiful.
Perfect for this gal who is so ready to ditch the high temps.
Of course there was some shopping to do and we are both drawn to the great use of vintage items in modern store displays.
Ki is more interested in how they built their display, than the merchandise.
Below is the check out are of Anthropologie in Santa Monica. I love how they cut the ends off of various tables and used them. I'm thinking "headboard idea"
And these are wine crate ends strung together at a local restaurant and hanging in the bar area ceiling.
Perfect repurpose and I loved the labels and brand names on the crate boards.
That ended day 1 of my trip. Ki has plans for Saturday and Sunday is the Rose Bowl Flea. Stay tuned.
