Boutique with a Twist

While shopping in the Cedros Design District in Solana Beach, we came across a boutique that was a little different.

There were beautiful succulent arrangements:

And then there was this:

Mosaic surfboard shower, anyone?

Here’s the rest of it. The space was so small I couldn’t back up to shoot all of it. I did want to show the beautiful detail too.

There were also colorful bistro sets. . . .

I almost felt like I was in Provence. The light and climate are very similar to Southern California. That’s probably why I like it so much.

Hope your weekend went well!

    Very original. A great outdoor shower. But I like the succulent arrangement as well.

    Love the surfboard shower – one of the most original and attractive ideas I have seen lately!

    LOL…you have to love California!

    • I know, right?? Where else would you see a shower like this?

      • TBM says:

        Sure beats the shower we had at Laguna when I was a kid. Just a shower head and a string to turn it on. My mom was obsessive about not getting sand in her car after beach days. Obsessive! But hey, I got to go to the beach a few times a week every summer for my first 13 years. Not a bad childhood! And I also went to Disneyland a lot. A neighbor worked there and would give us free coupons.

      • Oh, I am envious now. Living in the Midwest, going to Disneyland was something I could only dream about. When I got to go at the age of 10 it was the best day of my childhood. Hands down.

        Last night we were out to dinner with friends and saw a young girl get into a very nice Mercedes with sand all over her legs. Wet sand. Had to cringe.

    That succulent arrangement almost looks good enough to eat!

  5. I love that shower too. The store should let you “try it before you buy it.’ Ha!

    Great array of shots, Carole. I love it when you share these tours of the quaint and unusual. I do mosaics when I need to claw a little order back into my artsy – not the product, but the process. Don’t think I’d ever tackle a surfboard shower, but it is COOL!
