This town, nestled in the Sonoma County wine country is a real gem. Not only is this the chicken capital of the U.S. but also the arm wrestling capital. Both of these things I only found on visiting. My husband and I stop in Petaluma whenever possible for the laid back restaurants, the wonderful vintage and antique shops and the kind people. This town is farmtown meets urban and being just outside San Francisco is our favorite local vacation destination.

At right I've posted a few of my amazing treasures. The locket was hiding in a display case in my favorite antique store. This store is curating with individual dealers creating enticing vignettes all well organized and so beautifully done. The butter pat, along with a second butter dish, were found in the most charming second hand store new to Petaluma. This store and the owner were so wonderful I think I'll be making the drive again just to go to this shop. The ring was found at an estate sale along the road. You can see other shell rings in my shop. I have a bit of a soft spot for these pieces of the ocean.
