The boys and I have been taking the Metro Local to school. It’s a short bus ride. Thank god, because 3.0 has decided it’s the most desirable place to take a poo. Thank god again, because 3.0 is still wearing diapers (and he has my permission to do so until he’s good and ready for the big time). Anyway, after I drop them at preschool, I enjoy a long, thought-provoking walk/skip home. Along the way, I pass some of my favorite Venice and Mar Vista houses, gardens, colors and landmarks that make our neighborhood such a great place to live. Ahhhhh, I do love LA…

PS, The above shot is the storefront of the new Surfing Cowboys location. It’s coming soon!

I finally made it over to the new General Store; the second of two California locations.  The first in San Francisco, and now, a beautiful bright Venice space that artfully displays new and vintage treasures by local artists and craftspeople. It has a little something for everyone.  If you don’t happen to be near one of the two locations you can always do some shoppin’ virtual style: Shop General Store.  Check it out.
