Searching for breakfast....Venice Beach.....

Now that my darling daughter has returned to college
I have begun  fall breakfast searches
 with my husband Jeff

I have so enjoy the breakfast search.....
 as an easy an economical way to explore
the vast amount of new places
 that surround us here
 in Southern California
and with Ellis away at college
and my boys busy with their high school lives....

 and after almost 20 years of child rearing

the weekends have so opened up for Jeff and I .....
I feel like there is a whole world out there
 to explore!

This week Venice Beach
 was our target for exploration
and a meal.....

I have to say
much of Venice
isn't my cup of tea....
but oh
 was it worth the drive!!!

we found
the most amazing and overstuffed store
I have ever been to!

Everywhere and I mean 
there is a
 visual feast

perfect vignettes 
eye candy e.v.e.v.r.y.w.h.e.r.e.

I met Susan the owner 
who  told me she has been there 18 years
which speaks to how and why each and every inch 
is full of treasure
and visual delight

If you find yourself
is surely worth a stop
for a least some
 breathtaking window shopping
(the prices certainly aren't for the faint of heart).

1335 abbott kinney boulevard
(the store isn't named outside
I guess a store this great doesn't need signage).

After our fantastic
we got brunch at 

The interior and 'decor'
couldn't have been and more opposite 
from bountiful
 is true minimalism
the food is center stage visually
plated in bold textured ceramic dishes
the brunch menu 
is healthy Californian
my favorite.
I enjoyed a rice bowl full of 'shaved vegetables'

is just down a couple of blocks from
at 1009 abbot kinney

wishing you love and joy
as you style your life

thanks so for stopping by


  1. I love all the pretty light fixtures. :)

  2. Beautiful post! Love all of them. Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  3. Bountiful looks like a place I could spend hours in! There are so many lovely treasures in your photos. It's probably a good thing that I don't live close by... I'd want to spend way too much time and money there!
