ChiPPy-SHaBBy SHoPPing ~ CaLiFoRniA's GOLD COUNTRY!*!*!


I LoVe Being *~OUT WEST~*
Having lived about a third of my life there...
It's been about 3 years now since we've been back to California...
I didn't realize how much I've have missed those 
**Cool Dreamy Nites** 
with the AwEsoMe Ocean Air drifting inland...
Green Lush California is now in it's 5th year of
drought...   

 
 SUTTER CREEK, California is such a lovely little town...
Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, 
with larger Cities like Sacramento & San Francisco
 somewhat near by... 
~*My FaVoRite Shop is THE ANTIQUE GARDENER*~



 Aimee ~ Owner of THE ANTIQUE GARDENER
"Gets What LoVe of A NATURAL TIME-WORN PaTiNa Is"
Aimee's Shop abounded with 
Rusty... Crusty... ChiPPy ViNtaGe Finds!!!
BeSt Vignette/Displays as well...



Outdoor Patio Displays



Lots of ALL the things I LoVe!!!
FaB Lighting... Galvanized Containers... Architectural SaLvaGe...



 **Frog-Husband**
On-the-Porch, by the entrance of
THE ANTIQUE GARDENER
Sutter Creek, California



 Tomorrow's Heirloom's
in Sutter Creek, California
Is like a "little Anthropologie"
My ShoPPing Bag was quite full as I exited THIS STORE!!!
~Sweet Frog Husband~
knows my weakness for "Birdies" ~ and bought me this
over-the-top fab BiRd NeCkLaCe!*!*!



 Having once owned a Bake Shop in Boulder City, Nevada,
 I ALWAYS LoVe a Good Slice of P*I*E...
*BUFFALO CHIPS*
in Sutter Creek, California 
Had Eye-Catching Homemade Pies 
 that tasted as good as they looked!!!
The addition of "Vanilla Bean Ice Cream"
 from McConnell's in Santa Barbara, California,
 was the perfect "go-with" ~ **Y*U*M**




 READY-FOR-LUNCH!*!*!
Soooooo Glad we stopped in this itty-bitty town of Amador City, CA
AMaZiNg Architecture ~ Especially Inside & On the Back Patio
 The IMPERIAL HOTEL Dates from around the late 1800's...


 We opted to sit outside on the patio of the 
IMPERIAL HOTEL
~**GOOD FOOD**~
 and very pleasant waitress...
I can only imagine the ambiance at night with the string lights on
 against the wood and stone surrounds...


 Our lunch table was just below this fabulous 
naturally time-worn flower painting...
It was almost like we were in a "grotto setting" with the tall 
stone wall behind us...



 A few ChiPPy-WHiTe Sightings
on-the-trip...



I always get so inspired from traveling!!!


NOW
IT'S FULL SPEED AHEAD
