I don't know what it is with me and blogging, but everyday I make myself a "to do" list, and every day I have "blog" on the list. Well, most days, everything gets done on the list, but "blog" seems to carry over to the next day and the next day and the next..... Anyone have any suggestions for me on how to make it a top priority? ;) Or at least, a higher priority?
On to the pictures. I know they are all Christmas related, but I love Christmas and never get tired of seeing pictures and the inspiration they bring me. Hopefully, you feel the same. Oh, and at the end, I'll give you the recipe for that fabulous dessert Cathi made for us.
Country Living is owned by Sandy Jurisich and her hubby. It's in a darling little building right on the main drag of Amador City in the heart of the California gold country.
This is Sandy. She spins her own wool.
There was so much eye candy.
This candle came home with me. (Battery operated for my obsessive hubby)
See how cute it looks on my old wooden spool?
She has everything from prim to vintage and in between.
Aren't these old cheese graters fabulous? Now I wish I had bought one.
Patty kept eyeing this Santa Claus outfit. I thought she was going to buy it and dress up for us at the party!
Isn't this a darling way to display your eating utensils at a place setting?
Isn't this a perfect lamp base for Sandy? I love the shade.
Remember these trees in the 50's?
These two little mini guys came home with me too.
This gives you an idea of how tiny they are right next to the star mini pillow.
And.....for me a trip to CA isn't complete without a visit to my favorite restaurant. I always get the same thing, French Onion Soup with a baguette. Oh so yummy! (I sure wish Panera would open an establishment in Bend!)
A few people emailed me for the recipe for Cathi's dessert. It's very low in calories, so feel free to eat as much as you want. (wink wink)
Hopefully I'll be back sooner rather than later. I've been working on lots of projects to show you.
