ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Visits C*A*L*I*F*O*R*N*I*A'S GoLd Country!*!*!

Sacramento...  Auburn... Nevada City... Sutter Creek... 

Frog Husband and I spent the last 5 days in sunny California ~ Bottle Show in Historic AUBURN, then onto quaint towns - like SUTTER CREEK - "My FaVoRiTe Pick"...  



 I was pleasantly surprised to see a complete remodel of the Sacramento California Airport...  Look at those hanging birdcages!*!*!




 More "eye-candy" at the airport...




Word is that there is an ANTIQUE FLEA MARKET 
2nd Sunday of the month in this area...
Sacramento antique faire





I netted this sweet "Anthro" BiRdie Wrap Sweater at 
FRENCH CUFF CONSIGNMENT, in the hip "MidTown" District of Sacramento...


 Auburn had a quaint old historic downtown...  
Lots of "Good Eateries"...



 Scenic winding roadway on our way to Sutter Creek...




 My FaVoRite Town...
Wait till you SEE pics of
THE ANTIQUE GARDNER STORE!*!*!
Maria of DREAMY WHITES also did a post on Aimee's Store last spring...




I'll be posting lots more pics of my visit 
~ when I can fit it in...
Just got back ~ My week is sooooo busy...

**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Booth**

  1. Welcome back! Can't wait to see more photos. You were close to my home town. They've really improved the Sacramento airport in the last couple of years.

  3. If I found an Anthro shirt in a consigment store I would be happy but I have found a butter dish!

  6. You were in my neighborhood! Well not really but very close. Whenever I talk about going downtown on my blog or to the city it is Sacramento...most often midtown. I could easily live there. But I live on the outskirts in the burbs along the country roads where farms still exist. I'm on the hwy 99 and hwy 50 side. But I know all the places you visited. I knew about and visited The Antique Gardener way before I knew Maria of Dreamy Whites. We often camp nearby at the Old Indian Grinding Rock State Historic Park. Glad you had such a wonderful time here!
