A Piece of Heaven!

We all know the feeling. One step in and you're breathless! That's the feeling I had when I visited a special shop in Camarillo, CA.A couple of weeks ago, Jennifer Grey from The Old Painted Cottage, took me shopping at some of her favorite hot spots. Yes, lucky me! My favorite shop was Posie's Boutique where Jennifer and I shopped for hours! The store is absolutely filled with shabby cottage treasures magnificently placed in the most alluring vignettes! Beds and linens. Wardrobes and mirrors.Vintage and new.Papers and textiles, pinks and whites, crafts and crystals, aromas and music. . . Posie's has it all! I bought a few items at Posie's. Jennifer had more self-restraint and bought nothing! The gift bag alone was worth the trip! You can't go wrong with pink and white stripes and brown polka dots! The sweet little flag was FREE!

Jennifer, thank you for sharing with me your time and hidden treasure spots!
