Is it really January 10th already? ACK! I've really neglected my poor little blog, although I'm sure I've heard a collective sigh of relief at my not moaning and groaning about the weather! This will be a weather free post today. I promise. I am currently getting ready for my trip to San Francisco. Yes, tomorrow in the wee hours of the A.M. we fly out from Little Rhody and breeze into the west coast. Can't wait. Although truthfully I almost cancelled the trip countless times. Because despite my initial excitement, I am a homebody at heart, and we've never left Miss Olivia before. Well, she is 6, and in the excellent care of my MIL, aka Nanny. Besides, I've posted notes all over the house in my efforts to micro-manage in my absence, so she'll know enough to feed and clothe the poor child. She's surely going to hate me for that. Although, I'm sure she'll realize I've done it more for myself, to allay my anxiety more so than to suggest her ineptitude at child care. So, we will be there from Friday to Tuesday, not long, and Saturday is a friends wedding in Sacramento, which is the reason for going. We've planned a few things:
Must go visit this shop
and eat Here
And of course go to Chinatown and Napa. I'm not sure if it's possible to fit this all in, but we will certainly try.
Also, just a quick update on the latest Shop offerings:
this is the same tote, but reverse:
Got this awesome fabric at IKEA:
I've been on a linen tote bender lately. Alas, I've neglected to make myself a fabulous bag for my trip, can you beleive it??? Maybe, I can squeeze one more project in today...I leave you with a shot of Olivia doing her usual, daily, off the wall routine. (She was home on vacation and harrassing the Cat to no end, so Violet kept running from her as soon as she saw Liv coming, so Liv thought she would outsmart the Cat and stroll around the house incognito, so as to sneak up on her, of course I thought the plan was hairbrained, but what did i know, apparently her plan worked)
