Rose Bowl Swap Meet!
Vintage Catalina Poster
I'm a bit homesick these days. Yes, I was raised in New Mexico and live in Colorado, but I consider Los Angeles my home. People think I'm absolutely crazy to miss being there - they cite traffic, smog, too many people - but I loved it. Above are some of my favorite places. Yes, the Rose Bowl Swap Meet is one of them! Nothing like that here and I love digging up a good flea market find.
If I had my way I would have a tiny house on Catalina and live there. But of course buying a garage on the island costs about a million right now, so it's doubtful-:)
Also, I love Descanso Gardens. We would go there every season and there was always something to see. It's a beautiful garden, but not as formal as the Huntington which is maybe why I liked it so much. And I miss Lilac Season. True , lilacs grow here and have a longer blooming season, but it was sort of an early spring ritual to visit the gardens and see all of their lilacs.
I think I might be homesick because it's been sunny. I'd love to go for a visit but not in the cards this year.
