This picture is of Gary Mills who is a Niles resident and owns this wonderful vintage truck. He has it all decorated to drive in the Mission San Jose 4th of July parade. He had a blast driving it around on Sunday during the Plaza Concert. He said "hop on board" and I did! Make sure you look at the post below this one to see more pictures.

First Niles Plaza Concert and Red White and Blue

If you missed the concert you missed a really fun day. We are hoping to have more through out the summer so keep checking this blog for event news.
The first set of pictures are along Niles Blvd. and the house is back on 2nd Street. Don't you love it?
The last pictures are of the concert and Michael McNevin who is a Niles resident, a musician and all around good guy. He's also the guy who put the summer concerts together and is finding the musicians to entertain us. There were lots of people there enjoying the day including some of MY FRIENDS AND I customers who received our email about the event.

It's so pretty to use alone or to mix and match with other pretty dishes. If your planning a tea or just love white, you need to come in and see the we have on display right now. With the Shabby Chic look so popular the pretty pieces we have won't last long.
