Okay ~ now that I've got your attention (NOT my Citroen, darn it),
I'm sharing a simple, sweet and serendipitous day spent with my
good friend, Shell. She was trying to help me blow off
some *blues* I've been feeling lately. Great
company, good food & retail therapy . . .
what could possibly be better!?
First stop, Shell's favorite European-style bakery in
Everett . . . L'Artisan
(okay I lost their card, and I'm hoping that's correct)!
Life is short . . . look at dessert first!!!
I was THRILLED with my quiche, followed by peach tarte!!!
Speaking of *peach*, here is Todd of Bountiful Home in Edmonds.
Business has been BOOMING at BH, and Todd was hard at
work when we popped in to visit. He was receiving
new shipments of merchandise for the
coming holiday season --retailers
have to be waaay ahead
of the game, and
While driving up to the curb, we saw Todd's sign for "Mums,
Pansies & Kale" . . . Shell and I turned to each other
and said "Oh My" at the same time!!!
(Great minds think alike.)
Todd decided it was
a good sign
This is but a brief teaser of what's in-store at Bountiful Home.
There's gonna be major changes soon--be sure
to drop by and take a look in the next
few weeks . . . will be lovely!!!!
The rest of the day, we spent on much-needed "retail therapy".
We were far too busy to stop and take pictures--certainly
you understand. Rest assured, the *session* was
totally beneficial in every way!!
Here's a photo of one of the kindest, funniest and most interesting
friends in the world . . . . . Shell of Bungalow Bling.
She is one of those very special people you can
always feel comfortable around, even
when you haven't seen her for a
long time. She's as unique
as she is talented,
I'm so lucky to
call her my FRIEND!!!
We can be as different as night and
day . . . and it doesn't matter
one bit! We always find wonderful
and highly entertaining common ground.
THANK YOU, dear Shell,
for caring and sharing
in a beautiful day spent
