At the vintage shop and I just couldn't help myself. Like I need another chair. Like the shop needs another chair. But I had to get it because it's so damned cute. Now to decide what to do with it? Stay tuned for the after photos.
Christmas Eve morning When I arrived at the shop I found that some unknown person had left these two cute stuffed animals completely unattended, new, with tags still on them, sitting on the corner. Almost everyone was stopping to stare at them with that questioning look. I thought for sure that someone's dog, while being walked, would walk off with the toys. But when I left the store at 3 o'clock, they were miraculously still there. Funny! Anyhoo.......I hope you all had a lovely Christmas Eve and a fantastic Christmas Day! I have done absolutely nothing but eat, drink (lots of champagne) and lay on the couch watching Sherlock Holmes. Dreamy.........
So I was at Costco this morning. I know, I know, what was I thinking?? The weekend before Christmas? But I was wandering the aisles and found a new cookbook. The Pok Pok cookbook by Andy Ricker. Hooray for Pok Pok! Hooray for Portland! What a great gift!
This teeny little kitchen turned out so cute and cheerful! Took everything back to studs and started over. The only thing that came with this kitchen was the stove. I have to find the before pictures because it is such a dramatic change!
Arnica and I went to the marketplace this morning to restock for the weekend. Look at all the fun new pillows from tourmaline home that we have! So freaking beautiful! Great colors! Come by the marketplace at 1005 SE Grand Ave. I think you'll like it!
I love Flora Grubb. Arnica and I stopped by her amazing shop on the way to the airport after completing our Fermob furniture training. As usual the displays were a knockout. I particularly love the orange display, as you can imagine. Now we're at the airport drinking, again, with a little food on the side while waiting for our flight. More tomorrow.
Arnica and I are hard at work in Healdsburg California at the Fermon retailer training. Notice we're drinking first. Then we're looking at furniture. Then we're learning about furniture. And we're drinking more and eating. A good time was had by all.
