They are not primarily a boutique, they are actually a framing shop (that’s been in business since 1973!!) that offers numerous services:

  • Museum quality framing
  • Shadowbox picture frames
  • Frame Restoration
  • Memorabilia Framing
  • Military Display Cases
  • Frame Repair
  • Glass Repair
  • Mounting
  • Custom ideas/work

They wanted to add to their current services by featuring local fine artists in their shop which has now expanded to jewelry artists, stationary designers, ceramic arts, and home decor. If you’re ever in the area, or want to go exploring, head down and check out this lovely shop nestled in fabulous Pacific Beach!

Also, I’ve updated the stockist tab!! It’s pretty :)
Okay, now I’m out. Have a lovely day everyone!

OH and follow Gallery at Lands End on


Lady Gaga: ARTPOP

Was AMAZING. I was a little more preoccupied with getting her my gift than I wanted to be…or should have been, but regardless, I still had a TON of fun with fabulous souls. She is such a stellar performer and you really get lost in the whole time that you share with her. I mean, I am ALWAYS thinking about things I need to do, but not once while I was there…and actually, all day…did I think about any of responsibilities. Even the next day I felt like I was still floating in that delicious, artsy, inspired, touched, state of blissfulness (mind you, I was also DEAD-SOBER, that’s how powerful her performances are for me). Anyways, if you ever have the chance to experience this woman live, do it. Grab a freaking glowstick, and DO IT.

Here’s the rest of our time in pictures :)

First up, obligatory shoe shopping. I ended up sticking with combat boots…although the beige sparkly ones were VERY tempting.
