What Girls do Best!

Now that I am back into the swing of things and thank you for the sweet "get well wishes"...I had a wonderful day in Old Town Riverside where the famous Mission Inn Hotel is with friends shopping, chit chatting and eating! What girls do best! Thought I would share with you some of the pictures I took in a really nice store. I bought some pretty glass cloches that I will take pictures of tomorrow and post them. I have always wanted some!
A successful girls day out on the town! Hugs,
Maryjane

What beautiful treasures. Don't you just love cloches? I buy everyone I can find if it is a decent price -- who knows, some day I may even use them in the garden!

What a wonderful store, HEAVEN!
I love cloches too, but can't seem to find them here anywhere.
Ah well, maybe someday, who knows!!

Dear Maryjane,
I'm so glad you're feeling better and how better to recuperate than to have a field trip filled with 'eye candy'. So Beautiful! Have a Lovely Day~

Oh, my goodness, Maryjane that place is incredible!! Glad you are back to rights so that you could enjoy it. :) I'm a big fan of tomato soup as well. Made with milk, steaming hot with oyster crackers floating on top and a slice of cheddar cheese on the bottom of the bowl. Mmmmm. Yum.
The strawberry mold looks so retro-delicious. I may have to make one sometime soon.
Have a happy conference weekend. :)

MJL,
Glad you are feeling better. And of course you HAD to buy something when you are in a store like that! What pretty things. Lets see what you bought.
Jello, tomato soup and crackers, that is a very good sick menu. I would add burnt toast.

Small world! I live in Riverside. I love to shop down town. I could spend hours (and I have) in the three story antique mall and the beautiful boutiques. And I love to eat at Simple Simon's Bakery and Bistro. YUM! Glad you are feeling better:)

I just found your blog and I can see I'll be reading for days! What a delightful eye-catching blog. I love the picture of your grandmother Alberta - I don't supposed you've blogged about her and there is a bigger picture somewhere? What a very neat picture - thanks for sharing.
