~ napa valley vintage home

This is the third post from our recent trip to Napa!  Upon arrival, I could hardly wait to get to Vintage Home, one of my favorite places to shop! The store is so inspiring with every display beautifully done and Ira Yeager paintings everywhere! 
(Along with a million other things I want in my house!)
Check it out...
















The Ira Yeager paintings are magnificent and I just stood and stared and oooohed and aaaahed... Now, I will tell you that I have been known to ooooh and aaaah while shopping. I get a little excited about seeing lots of charming things all put together in a beautiful space. However, these were genuine ooooh's and aaaah's... I'm telling you I could have stayed there all day! 
(The paintings were hard to get good shots of since they are hung so high... my flash created a glare in several of the images, but I can't stand not to share them despite the poor photo quality!)













If you've been following this blog for a while, you will know which painting is my favorite. It will be an easy guess...
The Cow!! I really, really love this cow. And, can you see what's around his neck? I didn't even figure this out until I was home and drooling over my photos... Those little white blossoms? The orange citrus fruit? They are TANGERINES! FRENCH TANGERINES! Don't you think it was meant to be? I know! Me too! 


Surely you can see why I'm obsessed with Vintage Home and everything in it... Visit Vintage Home online HERE. It's the next best thing to actually visiting the store in St. Helena... I have images from the Vintage Home website in my current banner. I am seriously gaga over this charming store!

NO WONDER you love it.....me too! I have an idea, lets plan an annual bloggers convention in Napa, that way we can call it a "business trip" but indulge every one of our senses and hit all these amazing places!! I don't think I would have to twist YOUR arm!
What a spectacular store...one I could spend A LOT of time in for sure....such beautiful things! Thanks for sharing.

I think you need the painting with the cow and tangerines. It would look amazing in your home.

I love your blog -- you feature some of the most beautiful homes and gardens. They are wonderfully unique and personal.

Wow, this was really a treat! I would love to see Vintage Home. I have been to St. Helena when my son was in school at Sonoma State. I must have missed this jewel.

I agree with Tina that we should have a blogger convention there. Wouldn't that be fun.

You have such a beautiful blog. Thank you for visiting Illumination where I focus on design and great lighting.

All the best, Cindy

Hi found you at enchanted home, I can see why she featured you, your blog is so beautiful and this store is incredible. I could do some real damage in a store like that.
I am going to Napa Valley in March and will be sure to visit this wonderful store.
Am a new follower.
