San Francisco


On Friday, I flew up to San Francisco for a girls get-away. I decided to leave my camera at home so I could be "off the clock" and enjoy the time more freely. But I did snap a few shots with my cell phone. We started with a visit to the Ferry Building where I bought a petite cake pan from Miette. Now my cakes can look like theirs but probably won't taste like them. ;)


Our Saturday morning was spent strolling through Chinatown. I could have spent an entire day here, shopping all the trading stores filled with wooden kitchen utensils, unique soaps, brightly colored paper goods, etc., etc. I've been to Chinatown before, but it had been a few years, and it seemed almost new. Ever feel like that with a place you've visited before?


And of course, no visit would be complete without shopping the Alameda Flea Market. It was fun searching for treasures and getting the chance to meet up with fellow Country Living Contributing Editor, Cathe Holden. I noticed reclaimed wood pieces everywhere and thought this anchor light was really fun and clever.


I did purchase a few things that would fit in my carry on, too bad these olive harvest buckets wouldn't fit. Up next, I'll show you what I bought. Be prepared for small items. :)
