Where were you this weekend?


Well, the truth is, I was really home in Las Vegas all weekend.
It was a nice, eventful weekend, but not exactly where my mind was.




So for now, "live" in the Pacific Northwest with me and enjoy the journey!

Finding a little Fall

Seattle, Washington

Well, I guess my last post was a little premature since it's supposed to hit the triple digits again this weekend. Oh how I long for fall! Since I had a little time this morning I thought I'd post a quick photo of one of our favorite places to visit, Seattle, Washington.
I think right now, this is where my heart is.

It's starting to get cooler



Finally, a beautiful day for spending outdoors. It was only in the 80's today and it felt wonderful! A perfect day for some tennis and reading in the garden.


This is a vintage metal shell back chair I found in Oregon. This chair reminds me of summer vacations traveling to the south with my parents. I remember some of the little country motels having chairs like this outside each room.



Blackberry Cobbler


Finally, I couldn't resist finishing up the day with a little Blackberry Cobbler. Yum!
Thanks for visiting!

Some creative time





This weekend I found myself getting out an old project I started last Christmas and never finished! It was relaxing to do a little stitching by hand...maybe that's what takes me so long? We'll see if I can finish it in time for the holidays this year. Other than that I was in a "sewing mood" and finished some colorful surgical caps for my friends at work. "Thanks girls for being my beautiful models."

Hope everyone had a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!
