Saturday I spent a lovely day with a couple of girlfriends in North San Diego county. First we went to La Maison Rustique,
someplace we've been wanting to go for a good while. Previously located in Temecula in an old barn, they've relocated to an "urban barn" in Escondido. While I'm sure that the barn was charming, and Temecula would be bursting with wildflowers this Spring (we've actually had quite a lot of rain here in SD this year), getting ourselves to Escondido is a lot more do-able, and the urban barn was not disappointing. Filled with beautiful shabby, rustic girliness, staged with lovely vignettes...even a small vintage mobile home decorated in shabby girly style, complete with chandelier! Leaving with lots of inspiration, jewelry and a vintage birdcage, we then we went to Architectural Relics, a cool shop with a French garden aesthetic, and had lunch al fresco at "Delight of France". All in all, a lovely mini-getaway!
