Saturday at Matilda’s

This weekend, my sweetie suggested we venture out to Matilda’s in Valley Center. The weather was perfect. Not hot, not cold, just right. They were having their Mother’s Day (a bit early) festivities, and the place was decked out for the occasion. Matilda (the elderly terrier) was in full regalia on the front counter. We even saw her being carried out for a bathroom break, which was pretty cute considering she wears pearls and a gingham skirt complete with black crinoline.
I love this place, but how can you not love a huge barn full of antiques and vintage goodies? And of course, it is Gwyneth’s ancestral home. This is where we found her, hanging in the gold birdcage out front, up for adoption, last kitty to go. Gwynnie is the kitty in the back.)
Here’s Miss Matilda, below, having a slurp of water…just up from her post-breakfast nap. Pampered? Well, I think so! The place is named after her!
Well, hello there!


  1. looks like the perfect shopping location to the name
    so cute to have kittens in a birdcage!!

  2. How do you keep from buying everything you see?

    1. Oh, trust me, I don't do that well. I came home with a grey kitten that one time! Ha! But, this time I only got this old work shed type brush, and old paint brush, a little book, and an iron rack. $34 for a WHOLE LOTTA fun!

  3. hello again, behind the chickens?
    the shabby side of my neighbors house with her spare bedroom window directly across from my kitchen sink - with her light on..I can see down her hallway and she sees me in my "not so Victoria Secret" looking sleepwear.
    I could wave to her..but..I'm not that neighborly. Maybe if she ever painted her house.

  4. Fun fun fun! Oh, Matilda...I'm so glad she's still with us in her polka dotted skirt.
