The other day mom and I shopped the Cannery Row Antique Mall
where her enthusiasm for vintage things was reignited! So today, we set
out to revisit another of my old favorite, Hall Tree Antiques in Salinas!
Where the first thing I spied was this Martha-like apothecary jar
and a basket of old cookie cutters! While I'm first a copper cookie
cutter girl... That turkey cutter made in Sweden had my name on it!
Then, just around the corner...
I had a very Yellowware moment!
After Hall Tree, mom and I made our way to Cannery Row for waves and postcards!
My first job after we moved to Monterey from Junction City was on Cannery Row!
Mom always refers to Cannery Row as where Janet worked!
Today was another beautiful day to be on the Monterey Peninsula!
Stupid me... As I looked out over the bay I
actually thought, if I lived here I would never leave!
I know... What a dummy!
After some deep thinking on Cannery Row, mom and I drove
over to my favorite spot for squirrel feeding in Pacific Grove...
We stopped at Whole Foods for some almonds...
Because these little ground squirrels will come
right up to you and take them from your hands!
They're nothing like the tree squirrels back
home, which prefer to rob the bird feeders!
I grabbed the organic almonds... After all, these are California squirrels!
No squirrels on this beach...
Just lots of birds!
So we moved down the coast a little further...
Of course, my little buddy had plenty of competition!
Nevertheless, I made sure a few made their way down to him!
Those cheeks filled up quickly!
But he still wanted more!
I do have a nut or two left for you...
Come and get it!
Mom and I enjoyed our time together... No brownies required!
I bought 100 post cards...
