Second Day...

Vintage & Vogue the owner was so sweet. She gave me permission to take photos and share them with you
It was so full of wonderful goodness. Stacey bought a few goodies

Love these boxes
And the hearts!!!

We drove 45 min. just to have lunch at Half Moon Bay

Lacis....Ribbons Galore. I bought more Wool Roving and a few felting needles

Flying Mahi Mahi taco's at Half Moon Bay. We came back to Campbell, went to Vintage and Vogue
that I found out about through Cindy..My Romantic Home.
Los Gatos, it was Sunday, quite a few shops were closed
Just a little note...Yesterday I HAD to work...I ended up talking all evening, It hurt sooo bad to even say..."huh"...Today is my day off, I don't plan to talk at all.

First Day...San Fransisco and Berkeley

Thought you might get a kick out of this...what color of toilet would you like?? lol
This is CB2
Yummm. I ate the french macaroon before I got a picture of it. Oh dear, is that why I'm sick? lol
I love this display of brown eggs. Yep..$4 for 6...ouch. We drive out into the country here in Oregon and get a dozen brown eggs for $2.00. Below, this is a picture from Berkeley looking over at SF and Ferry Building.

We went to the Ferry Building with all of its fabulous shops, Cheese, Bread, French Macaroons, flowers, mushrooms and truffles.The Farmers Market was outdoors.
Then off to CB2....wonderful store...just like their cataloge, then Bell'occhio
We drove around and got some pictures, even though the day was cloudy.
Next we went across the Bay Bridge to Berkeley...stopping at Urban Ore, Lacis, Tale of the Yak, Ellington and French....then to 4th St. We spent so much time there...delights of discovery...Castle in the Air was a highlight. Dinner in Albany at Mangia Mangia

I'm back...

I got home yesterday afternoon, went to bed and I'm still there...I admit...I kept myself drugged up so we could go, go, and go...It was wonderful (not the drugs,lol, the "going"). The day before we came home my throat was getting its a full blown sore throat. I just wanted to let you all know that everything went well. I need to get Stacey's pictures put in my computer. We saw everything that was on our list, and then some. When I feel better I will post pictures!

AAAAAA~~CHOO sniffle sniffle

Joy, is having a "getting acquainted" party...Do you live close enough to visit???
You've met my kitties before....can you believe this...I didn't know he had crawled in the suitcase. He was so sound asleep...I left him...came back later...and sure enough...still sleeping!
Guess he wants to go with me.

Thank you for your "well" wishes...I've gone from the stuffy head to the sneezing drippy nose. My sore throat is much better...I got some over the counter meds. so I'm ready to travel! LOL. We have our maps ready and a loooong list of shops to visit. Soldering goodies are packed whoohoo for a crafting weekend!! I'll have lots to share when I get back, I'm sure!

I thought I would get this one last post in before I leave. I've come down with a horrible head I'm just resting and drinking tea...there is nothing worse then flying with a head cold. I guess it is suppose to sprinkle the whole time we are down in SF. Its not suppose to! We live in Oregon where we get enough rain! We'll ta-ta for now. .. another thing..
.Thank you, for all your sweet comments about the things I have been making!!

I had to try a was so much fun. If you haven't tried it, you need to. Check out Michelles' new flower.
I added lace to the spoon.
Here's for the exciting news...My BFF sent me a ticket to come see her in San Jose for a weekend of crafting...lots of soldering is the plan...we're going into SF and Berkeley, Los Gatos.
Stacey is coming along too, she needs a break from her job. When she returns, she is going to start up a "Homeowners Association" for the management co. she works for. It is going to be a huge huge undertaking.
The three of us have so much fun together. I can't wait...We're leaving next Fri. I will be taking a break from the computer. Have a great Sunday..

I did everything RIGHT. So I call...she very kindly me the numbers on the back of the new little boxes...WaaLaaa.....IT WORKED. So then...I wanted to Tape something...yes..we still have a recordable VCR...It wouldn't I called (no messing around this time) he said..."you'll have to get a splitter and run one cable from here to there and split the other and run it from there to here and ..... We'll off to Radio Shack in the morning...he said "Make sure it is a GOOD quality splitter. So...I really don't think I missed much...did I??? What if they showed the person that will end up being the American Idol??!!! Whew, I'm tired now...bye
