Can you believe that it is the last Sunday in August this year already?
I say it every month, but where in the world did the month go?
It has been a busy summer month over here and last week was a busy week of travel and work in Northern California.
It involved the beach, the flower market, the wine country & the Sunset Idea House.
1. French Charm in Capitola
A night in a Parisian hotel or maybe a favorite Inn in Capitola.
The Inn at Depot Hill is a favorite bed and breakfast by the sea
and this time, a night in the Paris room was just what I needed to relax
before a busy week of work.
You might remember the blue and white Delft Room at the Inn-
which is a favorite of mine as well.
#2. Flower Market Blooms
After leaving from the beach, we traveled up the coastal highway to San Francisco,
and made a quick stop at the SF Flower Mart to load up on flowers for a couple of upcoming photo shoots.
I took a quick video on my phone when I arrived before I went a little crazy. ;)
#3. Wine Country Living
After loading up at the Flower Mart
and a quick stop for a few photos near Sausalito,
it was on to the wine country.
We stayed in always gorgeous Calistoga
which is at the top of the wine country and the road traveling up there
is filled with beauty the entire way.
I worked on several photography projects while in Calistoga
and then it was back down to the bay to Berkeley
for a tour of the Sunset Idea House with Lamps Plus.
You will be seeing more of this amazing house that is perched on the side of a hill
along with more about this...
In other random weekend news:
I brought home more greens and fresh clippings from fields
than flowers at the market.
And I have to admit I wondered if I was feeling okay.
The cottage is getting a yard makeover- with a very simple patio area
in a part of the yard never shared in blogland before.
And in other (semi) exciting news, we found the original old water line for the
cottage kitchen and bathroom while leveling the patio area.
Kind of a fun discovery.
Coming your way,
more about the Sunset Idea House
along with a simple summer table setting
a fun autumn tour with HomeGoods
and much more.
Happy weekend everyone.
