San Diego/Fallbrook Trip





 

When I went to San Diego last week for my test I stayed at a boutique hotel
Called the Bristol. 
I really loved the hotel it was right in the heart of downtown and only 
two blocks from the place where I took the test but 
even better, Two blocks in the other direction is Horton Plaza
and the Gas Lamp district. 
Since I was only there for one night and was a little preoccupied
I did not get to see too much, but it is a happening place. 
I will go back when I can enjoy it.
When I left San Diego I stopped by Oceanside and picked up my daughter Mandi
and we headed out to Fallbrook for an overnight stay with my 
Aunt Toni who lives in a beautiful home that she has
been decorating.........
hopefully we can take some pictures next time to share with you.
She has some really great stuff!
She took us to some really wonderful places like the Myrtle Creek Nursery which is 
located at 2940 Reche Rd in Fallbrook. Phone #760-728-5340.
Mandi and Toni are posing for me in front of one of the many 
cute areas they have displayed so perfectly. 
Here are some more pictures of what they have there including  some 
items from their adorable gift shop.

 
Here is a close up of this cute circus wagon.
 
In the gift shop I found these leaning up against a wall. 
What a great back round. Feel free to use  this picture if you would like to.
 


  
 
  

  
Can you believe  these are geraniums? I happen to love geraniums but did not
know they could look like this! I plan to go back and get some for pots on our front porch.
That is all for today. Hope you enjoy these pictures and that you will stop 
by Myrtle Creek if you are in the area!

Well, I have lived long enough! I'm on Somebody's blog! I was just hoping for a little honorable mention...didn't expect a pic! We did have too much fun and we only saw half of the sights and sounds in San Diego county! Barn sales...Garden Center Cafe, Serendipity, the Farmer's Wife and a little flowered hat, and now to CELEBRATE your passing the test and beginning your brand new career!! Hoo-Ray!! Come back and visit anytime! Love, Aunt T.

Kim I love to shop at nurseries. This one looks like a lot of fun with the circus wagon and all. But I'm going nuts over those doors. The pic of Toni and Mandi is so darn cute!
