A couple of weekends ago, we drove up to Temecula and wandered around the shops in Old Town. Temecula is kind of a mix of Old West and wine country. The merchandise pretty much ran the gamut. . . .
Valentine’s Day holdovers.
A funky outdoor pottery shop with fountains, birdbaths and items like this:
I have no idea what this stuff is, but I assume it has to do with horses.
A nod to the surrounding wine country. I’m not sure if it’s actual wine or colored water coming out of the bottle.
There’s a hot air balloon festival in Temecula every summer and I’m hoping to make it this year. We used to see balloons flying over our house when I lived in San Diego before and I never got tired of them. Has anyone been up in a hot air balloon? I’d love to do it sometime.
A frou-frou boutique with a romantic bedroom. . .
I’m guessing you’ve never seen a lampshade made from a crinoline?
I stopped in my tracks when I saw this gorgeous import:
It’s a Jaguar, but I don’t know the year. The vintage pickup across the street was pretty cool too.
Can we say pristine? I can’t imagine parallel parking this on a busy street.
Finally, some more flowering pear blossoms. I shot this in the shade and am liking the blue tones. . . .
Great weekend, everyone! We’re going away next week, but I’ll post a photo or two.
