gifts from solvang

tuesday i'll be turning 25. kind of a big deal. i think i'm suffering from a quarter life crisis. but i digress. my sister, mom and i drove up the coast to solvang (because apparently i am a creature of habit) to celebrate. there was a bike race going on so there were 4,500+ bicyclists running children and elderly people over. or maybe it wasn't that dramatic, but still... it was packed.

there were a few things i wanted to do while in solvang... visit the organic farm stand, thrift shop, and eat. i think i did all 3 justice. i came home with so many pretties. lots of quilting fabric, a tiny wire basket, an extra long wire basket, a creamer for my mom, and glass knobs... because i decided that i needed to start another collection.

off topic, i've really been wanting to make a quilt from start to finish. especially now that my scrap fabric stash is growing. i just can't decide on the design!

so anyways, do tell what you guys have been up to this weekend, i want to know! sorry, did that sound too pushy?


  1. how pretty!!!!! u got some nice stuff =) I'm curious to see what u'll make

  2. Such pretty pictures! I had a total melt down at 25 as well. Funny because 30 was no big deal but 25 really hit me- don't worry, the second half of the twenties are better than the first :)

  3. Wew, I love these photos. The drawer handles are divine as well!
    25 is a good year. Happy early birthday!

  4. Oh, such beautiful finds!! Thanks for giving us a peek :) We are all about seeds and planting and planning here - weekends, weekdays, everyday ;)
