It was a beautiful spring day yesterday and a lovely morning to drive to Glendora, California to attend an open house at Country Village Antiques Shop. Glendora is a pretty town with a small town atmosphere situated just at base of the foothills. Glendora Avenue is the main street leading to the "village" as it is referred to and the "village" consist of about three or four blocks of small shops and a number of sidewalk cafes. It is also home to Country Village Antiques which has been in the same location now for 20 years. It is one of the few of the last havens in the Los Angeles area that still carry quality Americana country antiques. And I needed to be inspired so off I went.

It was their spring open house so the shop was filled with a wonderful array of furniture and smalls. It was not a disappointment as I quickly did see a small table so perfect for out door dining. In a nice old green paint ~ just too perfect!! I have been looking for awhile for a small table for additional sitting to fill a small area just outside my screen porch. I think I found it!

Not only was it fun seeing some great country pieces but it was also fun to chat with old friends. To spend a little time catching up on the happenings in their lives etc. and renewing friendships. Then it was time to say goodbye and be on my way.

If you are in the area and want to visit the address is 163 N. Glendora Avenue, Glendora, Ca. or you can view their web site at
