San Francisco was fun, but it's good to be home. I found these flowers on my walk home from the metro today. What a nice welcome back!

Well, friends, today I am off to Sonoma Valley to take in the scenery and drink wine of course. Our trip to San Francisco is wonderful so far. I can't get over how cold it is here though. On several occasions I have been wishing I brought my scarf. At the baseball game last night (Go Giants!) I have the pleasurable experience of being warmed by a hot cup of sweet cocoa.

Pictures and stories will follow soon.

my friend Meg

A belated birthday present for my friend Meg:

A wristlet in black fabric with embroidered white flowers and leaves. No, I didn't embroider the fabric, it came like that. I bought a few yards of the fabric over a year ago and have made some wonderful things with it. The lining is a soft coral color, the same as the pin. Thanks to Heather for the great tutorial for the yo-yo pin. I had a lot of fun making this wrapping paper.

I hope Meg likes her birthday present.

Yippee. There are few things I like more than coming home from work to packages filled with goodies. First, the shoes:

Oh I love these shoes. I splurged a little but it's been so long since I've bought shoes I allowed this little indulgence. The pictures don't really do them justice. They are shades of green and oh so cute and I can't wait to tromp around in them in San Francisco.

I also received these gorgeous folk art dessert plates from Anthropologie. I have been looking for decorative plates to adorn a certain wall ever since we moved into our apartment a year ago. I wasn't sure really what I was looking for but when I saw these and the half off sale price I didn't blink an eye. Here's a close up of the blue one:

Way too many interests

I'm back. I've been creating. I have pictures/stories to tell. More to come.
