With my out of town guest in tow (my mom, who introduced to me to antiques) I veer off the beaten path from the Plaza area in Old Town Orange (OTO) so I can introduce her to a hidden gem just down the street, Higgins Design & Interiors.
Delighted by a beautiful Garden of Eden-like entry, we make our way to the front door where the owner, Mr. Gordon Higgins, greets us. He welcomes us in and makes us feel right at home as we browse from room to room looking at all the great furniture, much of it antique.
This is on more of a personal note, but I wanted to share with you that last Friday night, my son took his first Belt Test at our local PaKua Studio in the Plaza. I was unable to be there and my sister-in-law took these pics for me (thanks BJ). I’m sharing them because, as a mom, I feel so proud looking at my 6-year old boy be so proud of himself for passing his first belt test and becoming a Yellow Belt. If you have little ones (or even older ones, or even yourself!) that are looking for a structured sport, to have fun and to really learn something that’s much more than just physical, you might check out PaKua. I’ve written them up before in more detail and you can click HERE for that post. Enjoy the photos of this proud mama!
For those of you who were able to catch the local cable program Around Towne, here’s a recap of the places I mentioned on my last segment Around Towne with Kelly. This particular segment was about a few of my favorite spots in Old Towne Orange that have been around for a while.
If you like the sound of Seven Jeans and Jimmy Choo, then you’re going to love what I’m about to say…Seven and Jimmy could be yours for $8. Every Thursday from 8am – 3:30pm, Casa Teresa hosts a re-sale clothing booth at Chapman University. They sell gently used clothing, shoes, accessories and more. You’ll be surprise at what you can find and nothing is priced over $8. Their booth is located ON CAMPUS just across from Wilson Field.
