Well I've had a few blogging free days, but I wasn't totally laying around. I finally got that magazine read and now there's more shops on my list of places to go.
I've also been reveling in some news, you can read about it here and here. I wouldn't have mentioned it but I am lucky to have such good friends who just did it of their own free will! Thank you thank you Elizabeth and Monica. Thanks to everyone who has commented or sent me emails of congratulations. I feel so fortunate to have had such opportunities in the first place.
Last weekend Elizabeth and I went to Buttons and Bows in San Anselmo. We read about it in Country Living this month and had to check it out. Lousy photos, sorry. That's my mantra these days, apologies for crappy photos. There were lots of lovely vintage buttons to be had. Lets hope Elizabeth blogs about it.. she got a ton!
I've also been helping (and I use that term loosely) my friend Holly with her soon-to-be (if-it-doesn't-kill-us) blog. She's not thinking I'm much of a help now I'm sure since I sucked away hours of her life she'll never get back. And spent those hours on tech stuff. Double whammy. How lame am I not to realize how different blogger now is, and how different her Mac is going to see things compared to my PC? I have my fingers crossed that my old-skool PKM template is going to continue to serve me well because otherwise, well, I'm a goner. I'll let you know when it's up and running.
In the meantime, Frankie is home. Yahoo. I have to appreciate her at home while I can, although I'm sure she'd appreciate a little less appreciation! No surprise there I guess.
Been tagged for my 7 weird things.. so better get on that. I'm trying to whittle my numbers down. Until then..
