Shopping with Claudia!

Claudia and I thought we had died and gone to heaven when we walked into this shop
Madison Manor in quaint Old Town, Temecula, CA! Filled with beauty. Lots of eye candy everywhere and sparkling chandeliers! This sweet dress~form made us G A S P !

Good thing I carry "smelling salts"! ; )

Isn't this gorgeous or what?!
Yes, these pink rhinestone clocks ($125.00 each!) were calling my name!
Just like the one I had as a young girl!
A fun filled day with sweet Claudia of Mockinghill Cottage!
Click on post title to visit Claudia!
Have a wonderful day!

Hi MaryJane, isn't it wonderful to meet another blogger? Looks like you had a great day. Love those chandliers can't wait to see them hanging. I love the idea of one over the sink.

Hi dear,

Stopped by for a short peek at what is going on. That shop is FABULOUS.

It is much more fun to shop with girlfriends than anyone. My high school best pals are a bad influence on me.

I would have needed smelling salts, too. LOVE those clocks! I regret selling my pink rhinestone ones.

Oh this shop spoke to my heart. Since I am not from California but, plan to visit (more often if I get my RV) where exactly is Temcula? This was amazing. Thanks for sharing! Charlene
