Last week my friend and I headed to Santa Cruz for a girl's overnight trip of site seeing, eating and shopping.
I had one thing on my mind, and that was to visit Wisteria!
I was so afraid it wasn't there anymore, but to my surprise, it is better than I remembered.
Of course, the gardens and nursery are wonderful, but the little cottage is a delight.
Every room is filled to the max with gifts, collectibles, antiques and everything in between.
Like this bee pottery that caught my eye.
The dining room has a cow theme going on.
As you can see, every surface and every inch of space is merchandized.
The living room with its stone fireplace is my favorite room though.
There is so much to see, that it overwhelms.
I could spend hours in the cottage.
Amazing pottery, amazing wooden candlesticks and amazing art!
As if the cottage isn't enough, in the back of the nursery there is a series of rooms, all attached to a wraparound porch that are packed with merchandise.
Each room has its own theme and color.
This is the turquoise room.

I'll never forget the first time I visited Wisteria back in the day.
I was blown away!
Funny thing is, I still am!
