Rockabilly Adventure

In a previous post, A Lazy Summer's Day, Sally and I decided we would take an adventure to Southern California to go to the Urban Barn's Grand Opening.  We both had read about it online and knew this was something we would love to check out and we were not disappointed.

This vintage trailer greeted us.  I was in love.  When my husband and I were first married we had a trailer just like this one that we got from my parents so we could go camping with them.  I wish I had it back.
  Look how cute it was decorated on the inside.

The bed was all decked out in white bedclothes with burlap pillows and some prissy netting.

The kitchen was perfect for a vignette of lemons and rusty vintage accessories.

A closer look at the vintage flatware.

The lemonade looked wonderful especially because it was over 100 degrees that day.

Sally wanted to stay awhile.  How cute is that chandelier and those shabby corbels?  I might be tempted to camp if I had my old trailer fixed up like this.

This rockabilly outfit just set the mood.  She was already sold.
We saw it in its new shop later on that day.

 I did purchase this slip, those are the original colors.
This is my version of a rockabilly outfit I made to use in my guest room.
A momento of my Rock-a-billy Adventure.

Another cute slip at Urban Barn.

These vintage slips are very fashionable.

I purchased one of these aqua umbrellas and also the book, "The Well-Dressed Home" by Annette Tatum.
It is inspiring to read how your fashion design inspires your decorating style.

.  On the right is Urban Barn Owner, Linda.  Thank you Linda for working so hard on your Grand Opening.  It was so much fun.  She is such a nice person and I will definitely be going back for a visit.  On the left is Erika, one of the owners from The Tattered House in Sacramento California that I love to visit when going through that area. Whether going through Northern or Southern California, there are amazing places to shop.

There were vendors outside as well as inside the shop.  This is a tea kettle that came home with me.  That plant is very hardy.  It will have to be to live at my house. lol

This love seat found a new home at Sally's house.

I was going to wait to show you this typewriter but I couldn't resist giving you a sneak peek. I have several typewriters but this one has a pink key on the right and some pink writing on the margin.  Even though I don't use much pink in my home's decor anymore, I knew it could fit in anyway.  There are just some things you can't leave behind.

I thought this Paris map would be so cute with the typewriter.  What do you think?

Great cover on this umbrella.

Urns are so versatile and can easily be changed with the seasons.

Feminine beauties were everywhere.

I think I will let you browse and take it all in.

Congratulations for a successful grand opening. The Urban Barn  is amazing. I not only found so many fun items while shopping, I also found new friends. Thank you Linda for making me feel so welcomed. I love the purchases I made and look forward to coming back to shop.

Happy Adventures
