Have You Ever Seen Flowers This Pretty?

Hello everyone!
Sorry I've been a bit MIA but all in good fun! One of hubby's business partners got married in Santa Barbara last weekend and it was so lovely! Anyway, we spent some time in Los Olivos, Solvang and even made it down to visit our friends in Laguna Beach! My goodness the flowers that grow this time of year on the coast are breath taking! Like this morning glory winding it's way up a regular old sign post!
 I really enjoyed wine tasting at Saarloos and Sons in Los Olivos - their tasting room was so cool! Hubby knows Kirk Saarloos (one of the owners) from when we lived up in the Seattle area. He used to play major league baseball and would give us tickets on occasion : )

 This gorgeous chandelier hung right outside the front door under the eve of their cute California Bungalow!
Can you imagine taking the time to hand paint these silhouettes all over the wall? Oh my gosh that must've taken forever!

 This Shasta Trailer was the highlight for me as far as sight seeing goes in my home State of California! Would you believe me if I told you they sell cupcakes out it? I'm serious! Enjoy Cupcakes is making it's way around the valley! You have to check out their website! it's so cute!

Well I know none of this was pin topper related but I was so excited to share with all of you a little bit of what I experienced while being back in California! Back to work Monday sculpting more Halloween pins for the shop!

Morning Glories are my absolute favorite flower - mine didn't come up this year - perhaps because of the lack of rain : (.
