A dear friend of mine just launched a darling vintage on-line shop called Summerland Mercantile, named after the area she resides in near Santa Barbara California. Her good eye is apparent with the charming and useful items she has found from the local area, and on her numerous travels abroad in order to share them with us. But not before putting her magic into each piece.
Today, I received my purchases all charmingly wrapped in crinkled green tissue and tied with blue striped bakers twine and a sprig of vintage forget-me-nots. The lovely hand-painted vase and aqua bottle-brush tree are are even better in person.
