love this shade of green
For the record
we used to have a blue Fiat Sport Spider convertible
and it was a fun car...
I rarely drove it as I needed to sit on top of two pillows
to see over the steering wheel and to stretch to reach the pedals...
Italians are obviously tall or at least a good bit taller than me!
it was a persnickety car
a lot of money went to the mechanic to keep it running!
Fix It Again Tony!
Seattle buys continued...
Brown and white striped linen trousers
wider legs cool for summer
Jones of NY
purchased at Macy's
I have seen a lot of stripes appearing in the fashion mags and in stores.
I like the stripes as they are vertical, they given the illusion of height
I can just imagine if they were horizontal...
I do not need to look wider than I already am!
I remembered that I have a perfect partner in my jewelry chest back home
Debra K woven brown and burnished sterling necklace.
I want to wear these soon
I plan to team them up with a simple white tank and a sweater or a white shirt worn as a jacket
these crystals might work too
what do you think?
Exploring the shops near Pike Place Market we found ourselves in Sur la Table
their selection of cooking gadgets and gear was overwhelming
decisions are difficult when too many choices are available.
I was tempted to buy the pasta roller for my Kitchen Aid
but they were out of stock.
I found some basic napkins
I can always use more
as we use only cloth
avoiding the toss away paper ones in an attempt to be more mindful
and they were on sale...
So that about sums up the shopping
I hope that I have not bored you to bits!
Dining downtown was varied and never once did we need a reservation
which as spontaneous tourists we really appreciated
I managed to eat only half of every serving
as I found the portions large.
I have been very inspired by some of the unusual salads
and plan to recreate them here in The Humble Bungalow.
When we got thirsty we rehydrated
the first Starbucks in Pike Place had a line up out the door
cameras were snapping madly capturing the images
of smiling tourists
in front of the sign
there is a Starbucks on every corner in Seattle!
Please stay tuned there's one more....
