We went to Placerville yesterday. I think it's my favorite town to walk around at. They have such a charming old town and friendly people.
The bell in the center of town.
I went into the Hardware store, which was established in 1852, and it's not just a hardware store - it has home goods and so many interesting things.
We stopped and ate lunch at one of their lovely restaurants.
I've always admired Thomas Kinkade's paintings, and went inside the original gallery where he first showed his artwork.
I've wanted one of his paintings for such a long time, so husband bought me one. I was thrilled. It is a beautiful painting of a white cottage with snow, and I will treasure it always.
It was a fun day, and Placerville will always hold a special place in my heart.
