I've got a little bit of a western theme going on this week.  Yesterday I took a little trip to the little town of San Juan Bautista.  It was so adorable and looked like Mayberry or a set from Universal Studios.  I went down on a little excursion to the mission  ( next post!) but before that I took a little walk in their pueblito.
This adorable little casita sung to my heart.  I just loved the rustic look and again the kind of "westerny" look.  I thought I was back in Amarillo visiting B's family when I saw this sweet house.
 I like messy gardens, probably because I have one at home that is a little bit more than messy.  But it looks so full of life and quaint, right out of a Shabby Chic book.
 I showed you this casa yesterday on FB.   The Anza House which is a small one story California Adobe, is a national landmark for its type of architecture.  I gravitated towards the turquoise an rustic colors, I could even feel an outfit being inspired by this photograph, kind of beachy too, right?.  Since I have been doing a lesson on the Mexican Era of California, coming to San Juan Bautista was a perfect little trip.  There are many great old buildings here and this little adobe casita was typical of that time. 
California never ceases to amaze me and it is probably why I love it so much.  Always a little gem tucked in here and there.
Have you taken any midweek field trips recently?
