Stepping inside a magical place...♥


Now this picture perfectly describes me... I very much wish I was her at the moment, with that quilted blanket, those lovely looking books scattered on my bed, and with a dog just like that to love! And that blanket over her lap grabs my attention too. Now to find myself some blankets like those... :) Isn't this a wonderful photograph? Photos are so great aren't they?


Today I went to the Mission District to check out this Vintage/Antique store I found online. It sounded so wonderful that I just had to go see for myself today! The little shop is called Gypsy Honeymoon....and let me tell you...I fell in love with the place! So many fascinating treasures, old photographs , lace , old keys and chandeliers, and beautiful jewelry! Most of the things I wanted were a little pricey, I loved this Locket necklace I found and an owl brooch. But I did leave the place with a wonderful old book called 'Many Inventions' by Rudyard Kipling published in 1893, it smells so old and nice, the cover is amazing, a beautiful red color with an interesting illustration of a creature, I also got an old looking key, with the letters R & E imprinted on it. To what it unlocks, i do not know...it could be anything! but who knows where the keyhole for it lies... Well I want to go back to the shop again soon! The lady was so nice to me :) I felt so welcomed there and the beautiful music playing there made it more enjoyable as I looked around. I will be going back soon again! I also asked if I could take some photos with the Holga and she said I could , so hopefully the photos come out since it was indoors, because last time my indoor photos came out dark :( But be on the lookout for them once I post them!
