I was flying back home on Sunday when I grabbed the latest copy of Country Living magazine.
I adore this publication, but I need to renew my subscription - hence the airport purchase.
Inside there are plenty of great articles and idea notebooks, with features on closet makeovers, vintage luggage, antiques, and even sea salt (my latest fixation).
Then what before my eyes should appear in the March 2010 issue on page 69 but a fabulous feature on my hometown !
“Five Reasons to Visit Petaluma”
When I saw my sweet little hometown featured in a major national magazine, I got a little giddy.
Ooooh, a three page spread ! I live right nearby these places !
Petaluma is the southern most town in Sonoma County, just 35 minutes north of San Francisco. Our town shares its eastern border with world famous Sonoma, and is known all around for its numerous antique shops in the downtown area.
Twice a year, we have an amazing Antique Fair where the streets are closed off, and almost 200 vendors come from across the West to sell their vintage, salvage and antique goods.
The big feature in the March 2010 issue of Country Living is on this very Antique Fair ! How marvelous !
The Petaluma Antique Fair is where I spied this piece . . .
. . . . which inspired my latest cabinet makeover (pictured below).
