While in Sonoma several weeks ago I stopped in a wonderful little shop, The French Nest.
It's located just off the square in downtown Sonoma.
It was such a surprise to discover that my friend Mary Jane works there on occasion and happened to be there that day!
It belongs to one of her girlfriends who she helps out once in a while.
Believe me when I tell you that she is totally in her element there!
We had so much fun shopping and catching up while my boys were next door wine tasting.
I took photos of several vignettes while she helped customers.
One of my favorite things was this mounted deer head.
I absolutely love how she either gilded or painted the antlers gold!
How clever to use an old railing to hold scarves!
I thought the use of old paint brushes and cans to display jewelry was interesting.
I want to thank those of you who have left comments and emails about my brother.
I am happy to tell you that he is recovering beautifully and truly has been given a new life!
Miracles do happen, he is living proof!
