I arrived in Fresno late Thursday night to greet my sweet friend Tammy and her husband, Monte! I got to ride in their sUhWeEt new pickup –an 84 Chevy longbed and man, did that take me back! My Dad had a blue one…same year model I think! Smelled EXACTLY the same! What a ride!
Being with Tammy and fam was like home away from home…though we did manage log several hours of meetings/work. We also got to play on Friday…Tammy took me on a surprise journey to ANTHROPOLOGIE!!!! I have been wanting to go to one of these stores for a long time and she took me for my birthday and got me a present!!! I also got this Farmers Egg crate…which I LOVE
I thought it would be perfect to stock boiled eggs in (shells on) till I'm ready to use. Everybody around here loves boiled eggs (with salt + pepper of course). It's MY FAVORITE COLOR too.
I also got these...for just $1.95 EACH OMG!!! (still have 'em online…check the link) They are so adorable. In Thyme, Chili, Curry, Basil and Oregano. Look so adorable in my kitchen window.
(btw the phone pic of Tammy and me is in front of Anthropologie in Fresno…eeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!!)
It was very fun! We also had sewing lessons as I enabled Tammy to stop and buy a sewing machine and we played with it a lot!
I made Tammy this cute purse which so reminds me of her…
Had so much fun with the kiddies…
(excuse the phone pic)
But at last I was glad to get back home. I missed mine so much.
Yesterday, I had to finish my taxes!!! Among working on orders and getting back into the swing of things. I did have to make a creative tangent and do something to fuel me on. Call it procrastinating a bit…but nonetheless, I had to 🙂
I tidied the house back up and moved around some pictures…I do that every once in a while. I like to rearrange the furniture too…yes, I'm one of those. Anyway, I've had this project (the frame) in motion for a few weeks…I wanted to frame a number five…you know, representative of our household # and sort of a lift on the House of 3 idea…only different. Just for a cool, personal home dec thing. I'll share more on this later.
So…California was great and seeing Tammy and her family was awesome! But there's just no place like home…good ole' southern sunset from the back.
