PETALUMA, CA


Seriously, doesn't that picture alone give you butterflies? It does me! Not only does my planned weekend to the beach with the girls excite me, but my drive home does too. There is a darling antique/consignment shop just entering Petaluma from Bodega Bay on the left side of the road that has me dreaming the whole ride there. Take a look at "The Find".














It is one of the cutest stores EVER with the cutest little owner, Janet. And there really is a "find" every time you turn a corner in the store! If my craft shed was built in my backyard, this lovely red dresser would definitely be in there.

Once in the town of Petaluma I love walking up and down Petaluma Blvd. and Kentucky to shop Summer Cottage - a collaboration of antique dealers, a store called Stink - fashion forward apparel....think designer jeans, a darling little store called Splendid Little Shop (where I purchase a darling little item for the baby shower I'm planning for Saturday), and window shop at Sienna Antiques (I'll post pictures from that store later). I think it is safe to say "I heart Petaluma."

I lived in Petaluma when I first moved to Cali. And my husband and I lived in a little basement apartment within walking distance of downtown after we were married. Needless to say, I found myself window shopping almost every day. It was a great way to pass the time, especially when my husband was gone for days at a time. I always thought of Petaluma's downtown as "MY downtown". Thanks for the stroll down memory lane :)

My very best friend lives in Petaluma! Looks like I will have to pay her a trip when we head out that way, and do a little antique scouting!

I live in Sacramento and we drive to Sea Ranch annually. Right through Petaluma, will have to check it out sometime.
