We LOVE The Urban Barn!


Oh the wonder of it all… Wednesday was a trip south to The Urban Barn in Escondido, CA.


IF I had a girly Foo Foo Studio I would sooooooooo have to have the sofa in the first photo. And this chair!!!!!!!!!! Isn’t it 2DIE4? Sold… So sad. But, I so want to find another one & have Darlah make one for me.


Oh the PINK WONDER of it all.

I sooooooooo LOVED this!

I think I need to bring out my van so I can load it up. BUT, THEN I WOULD HAVE TO DRIVE IN THE MADNESS OF THIS PLACE! OMG!!!! I don’t think I have big girl panties big enough for THAT job!!!! The traffic & road rage out here is scarrrrrrrrrrry!!!! OK! back to the treasures… OH NO!!!! More shells & Manni’s!

Now, I am NOT a molded baby doll (although I’m all over the German Doll heads & frozen Charlottes') person. BUT, these guys I DID LIKE!

Do you have something with an old mirror that is really cloudy & your thinking… I don’t know about this piece but, LOOK at how FABULOUS this turned out!

Loved this display case of Debbie’s (she is the one that made my starfish Sandy gave me for my birthday gift) & as you can see… Sandy & I did a good job covering it up for this photo op (thanks to Deb Hodge)! And look below for the wonder held within this beauty! Reminds me of the book done by my friend Charlotte Perz that I am still pouting that I didn’t get one. But, holding out for a little tutorial as I NEED this.


Speaking of Deb HodgeI ADORE THAT GIRL! I buy a LOT of my clothes from her. She is freaking amazing when it comes to linen… Well, she is teaching another great class at The Urban Barn & it is CUTE! Look below. And here’s the link on The Urban Barns Blog to sign up.

Boo Class by Deb Hodge

The images are printed on linen & it is simply a yummy color.

And the last thing that I LOST my mind over… AND NO!!!! My BIG BOTTOM will not fit in these size 4 jeans! And it may loose it’s charm in my size but, I’m gonna give these a try.

Darlaha said these are adorable in vintage men’s jean (like 501’s), baggy with a belt…

Hello Charlene,
I just joined your blog and it looks like you are enjoying your life! I do have a personal question and there's no hurry getting back to me- I've become hooked on my ancestry and in search of possible connections I came across you. Is your maiden name Wirth by chance? If so I will be elated and if not, I will continue to follow your love of all things vintage!

Warm Regards,
Denise Thrasher

Yup, I knew you'd love California's little piece of Round Top. The Urban Barn is a truly amazing place with so much eye candy and inspiration. What a wonderful jammed packed day with my favorite gal pal.
