Grass Valley California

my sister Connie, me, my grandma and my sister Lori

I haven't taken the time to blog about California yet. Scott and I went at the end of April to celebrate my Grandma's 90th Birthday. She is such a cutie. We had a great time celebrating with my family. My mom's family are a rowdy bunch. They can party with the best of them that is for sure! I think my grandma was pleased. It was fun watching her interact with friends that knew my Grandpa who passed away 26 years ago.

Scott and I took a lot of time together just to be alone. It was nice, we need to do that more often. We walked around the town of Grass Valley, went antiquing. Found some great spoons for rings and found the cutest little shop called Junk in the Trunk. The shops owner Bonnie is the nicest lady who is so talented. She has an eye for vintage and has such a fun way of packaging things. She wraps the item in a pattern instead of tissue and then her bags are paper popcorn bags. Everything in her store was like that. Just, unique, clever and so much fun!

Bonnie is going to start selling my bracelets in her shop as well as spoon rings. I am excited, as I consider it an honor that she approves of my jewelery to be sold in her darling shop!

It was hard to come home, we left the kids on their own for the first time and they did great. We just needed a few more days alone together. Scott take note of this!

Hope you have a great day!
