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!
