Here in Julian California you find the most charming people, making the best pies, memories & bringing in the christmas holiday very special!
Super sweet Main Street full of homemade pie shops and adorable christmas shops 
Super vintage goodies all around made for great one of a kind shopping
Adorable rustic goods
Great small business clothing makes it fun to pick up rare one of a kinds...
One of my very favorite goodies in this life is farmstead!!!! Look behind me...A vintage flannel company that you pick a color of a flannel and they find it for you all the while using a vintage washing Technique infusing lavender making them soft,worn ,heavenly scented vintage flannels!!!!! My favorite!
So funny but we both were wearing them on Saturday!!

Ekkkkk!Then we spotted them! 
Oh hunny slap your daddy! I scored! This adorable store had my flannels!!!!! My baby chick & I grabbed and tossed to Daddyo! He paid ...It was sooooo fun! 
Some of my loot! Smells amazing! I have to admit I own 43 vintage flannels from them! They are my very favorite company ever! Owned by two great sweetheart guys who hunt for adorable vintage flannels then send you a picture of a few and you pick your special flannel!
Oh my the smell is just amazing! Plus Vintage flannels for camping in my sweet vintage trailers! What could be better! Especially when you can get pink flannel good golly:)
Now back to the Super charming town full of yummy pie shops! Cider and home cooking goods! Made bringing in this home-y time of year so special for me! 
Now you must have pie!!! This is a baked apple pie the whole apple baked inside!!! We stopped at 5 shops sharing different kinds of pies all the way! But as I've shared before my very favorite pie Is pumpkin apple pie put together! Of course that one came home with us:)
Oh my what a festive day!!! I absolutely love supporting my favorite small business' instead of hitting the big stores! Can't wait to see all your holidays...
Hope you all enjoyed your holiday with your families close ! God bless you!

Home made soap! It's cheatin' time!

Howdy kittens! I am so excited for this quick lil post and a Vintage Housewife cheat!
I know I've posted on how much fun it is to make homemade laundry soap! And how my fun camping class was just a hoot' & loved it... The smell, how it worked& the price! well I've gotta lil Vintage housewife find to share with y'all !!!!!
A few months back I found this box of Zote! Yup a box of Zote!!!! All flakey and grated for ya! Hello can I get a Yes Sista!!!!!! Yup all that elbow grease we've had to use grading is gone in one lil rip of a box!  Of course I had to give a test run and I have to say in a pinch id use it again!
Now I defiantly didn't like how large the flakes were but I crushed them a bit with my spoon before adding them to the mix.... I adore the fells napa scent more but that's personal...but on the flip side I adore the white Zote has a brightner! So to me it's a win win situation! Gals!!! Less work!!!!

I bought my box for $ 2.48 at Walmart! Super good deal for less work and I still feel good about doing it for my family! 
That's a great Vintage housewife find! The right kinda Cheat for sure!!!!
Thx for swingin by
