Out & About

Scenes from a Weekend

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

We had out of town family visiting for the weekend, so naturally it was filled with a little sightseeing.  With the fine weather, we headed to Kenwood and few favorite stops.

Gorgeous sunshine and great company made for a relaxing day out and about !

Home Goodies at Burlington Coat Factory ?!

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

I’ve always known Burlington Coat Factory was a great place for cheap clothing for kids.  Today I found myself exploring the home goods department and was rather delighted to see this discount store had a few accessories and some furniture that were quite stylish, and inexpensive compared to their designer twins !

I spied these moroccan end tables for $50 at BCF, and found them a few places online like right here for $200 !

Do you love the Filigree Urn by Z Gallerie ?  I adore it, but it is almost $100 dollars.  A similar version at BCF is $30 bucks and also comes in blue, green and white.

That $12 dollar smaller one came home with me.  :-)

Antiquing, New Friends, and Great Finds!

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

Well, top of the mornin’ to ya folks, hope your weekend was fabulous !  Mine was exceptionally great, especially since I had the opportunity to go to the Antique Faire here in town, the one I mentioned here that was written up in Country Living a few short months ago. 

The weather was perfect and so was the company – check out these lovely ladies who drove from all over the Bay Area to pay a visit to our Antique Faire !

group of 7 Emily and Jillian; moi; Marie, Pauline from Struggling to Be Stylish; Claudia from Viva Frugality, and Kim from Yep They’re All Mine.

The group split up to hunt for treasures but met up later for a fantastic lunch.  Here’s a glimpse at some of the cool antiques I spotted.
