9 Year Anniversary Getaway and Mountian Finds

Since I wasn't feeling well on our actual anniversary (4 Sept.) we waited to do a getaway till I felt better. So this weekend we went up to Crestline and stayed at one of the best places we've found! It's a little place called North Shore Inn! We got upgraded (military discount) to a room with a fireplace and it was so fun! There was sparkling cider waiting in our room when we arrived too! We also shopped around the mountains the next day too! We started in Crestline, then went to Lake Arrowhead then onto Big Bear! It was great to get to drive around and stopping at shops we saw! Here's some of my finds!
The organic tea, tea cup, vintage jewelery, lace runners, and salt & pepper shakers were all from Crestline shops. The red handled sissors, fat quarter (butterfly made from flowers print) and the iron on pattern came from a shop nearing Lake Arrowhead. Lastly the beautiful tea pot and beads were found in Big Bear! And overall lots of window shopping was done! LOL
We also stopped by the Mill Creek Manor Tea Room to check it out, it was closed but we got to see inside and it is one place I'll be planning a trip to! That tea room is SO CUTE! Can't wait till we get a chance to go there!

Happy anniversary! I'm glad you're feeling better. I especially love your tea cup and saucer. Thane handle on the tea pot is very cool, and I love the touches of blue in it!

Oh it looked like you all had alot of fun. I celebrated my 9 yr with Matthew on the boat and on a FRG Feild trip to the puyallup fair...Just to end my night with Kaylah getting Heat sickness and puking on me, LOL!. Love your Vintage finds. I've been on Etsy looking at Vintage Tea cups for my MIL. But then I'm an Etsy addict so I'm always "window" shoping on that site, LOL. CONGRATS BTW!
