San Diego~Matilda's Mouse

I had a wonderful time in San Diego, visiting my Aunt, Uncle, and cousins and then my girlfriends. I wanted to tell you about my favorite place to visit, Matilda's Mouse Antiques. They are only open one weekend a month and I was so fortunate to be down there when they were open!

My dear friend, Sue as sweet enough to drive me up there (I was staying with her a couple of days).

And this is Gale, who I met via blogging at Theresa's blog Garden Antiques Vintage. Gale is a talented designer and dealer at Matilda's Mouse. It was such fun meeting her in person~She is a delight and a joy - and wait till you see her room!! Gale recently started blogging-pop over to her blog for a visit and welcome her to blogland!

This is Marla, the owner of Matilda's Mouse and she is holding her sweet dog, Matilda--yep--the store is named after her! How cute is THAT?! Marla is so sweet and charming and her love for all things vintage is contagious! Oh yeah, Matilda has a blog, too! Check it out here!
Okay, so here's Gale's room. It was fabulous! Everywhere you look is a feast for the eyes! I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves....
remember to click on pic for a closer view!

See that darling little green and white bone dish nestled behind the urn? I bought that as a sweet remembrance of my new friend, Gale.
I took so many pictures of the rest of the store that I'll have to do another post, so stay tuned!
