{Pausing on the London recapping for a little LA moment}

I still can’t quite wrap my head around how many cool things happen on a daily basis in LA, and how incredibly easy it can be to not know about a lot of them.

Visiting the Melrose Trading Post is one of the better things to do in the city on a Sunday – it’s how I spent my first Sunday afternoon after I had moved here!

I can only describe it as an amalgamation of organized, colorful, vintage and eclectic chaos. Yes, all of those adjectives are very necessary and this is why.

It’s always full to the brim with vendors and their goodies. Each time I’ve been I’m amazed at the variety and often unusualness of some of the items. The jewelry selection is always where I beeline but on this particular visit I picked up a restored wooden frame that I’m going to attempt to fashion into this.

Key word: attempt…

and it may or may not still be leaning up against my wall…so I’m clearly off to a pretty good start.
