Gentle Readers and Dear Friends - well, here I am back at the salt mines on a wet, windy Monday Morning!! The weekend was just beautiful - bright and breezy - dampish with fog, but nice all the same. It has been on the cool side, but that's they way it is most of the time and I love it!!
I am breaking up the weekend into two posts - Friday we spent running to the east Bay with a visit to IKEA in Emeryville. This gigantic Swedish store is just stuffed to the rafters with home stuff. We haven't visited in the longest time - We got there about 20 mins before they opened and got a great parking spot. We really were not shopping for anything in particular but we did find some new Summer linen's for the bed.....
They were very inexpensive and brighten up the room - even the Lolly approves! From IKEA we drove over to Alameda to Needle in a Haystack. The NiaH Report I will save until tomorrow - so check back then.
After making one more stop on the way back into the city at an Antique Collective (Mall) we decided to stop for a quick lunch at Jack in the Box. The only reason I mention this is that they have a really delicious new summer shake - Blackberry....
If you get the chance try it you'll like it!!
Last week I was going to post about a RAK I received but you remember the issues with Blog/Google so that never happened. But, now we are back and working I can post... I received from sweet Coni, Aunt Chrissy, Stewey and little Bosco a wonderful Easter Treat...
Not only treats for Me and Rico , but the who-hounds got lovely treats. Thanks you so much for making our Easter so super special!!!!!
Another treat the hounds got was from Gabriella a co-worker of Rico's- she made some doggie cookies that the who hounds love....
They are peanut buttery delicious and the hounds really go for them!!
On Saturday we ran around to some sales and Thrift Shops - Here is a snap of the few bits I picked up...
I got two really nice older frames - four travel books and a gorgeous black and white transfer ware mug c. 1880 - you might not be able to see but there are cows on the mug - just super!!
I think that about wraps it up for today. Check back tomorrow for Part II - A trip to NiaH. Thanks so much for stopping by.
