The palm lined streets and older architecture reminds me of days gone by when the Rat Pack still swaggered and Marilyn was pouting on every cover. I absolutely adore towns with rich history and character. Towns I heard about growing up and seen on the one television station I was able to get as a child. This is one of those towns where I can remember seeing postcards of the amazing pools and palms and telling my mother "I want to go there someday."
I am so excited about getting this opportunity to actually live in a town I spent so much time gazing at the colortech images of. I am sure I will be snapping lots of pictures to share with you but in the meantime here are some I found on my favorite place to shop, Etsy:
