errands on a saturday.

September 26th | older posts


it was a gorgeous day in morro bay today.  about 65 and sunny and perfect. the boys and i ran some errands

and thankfully things went much, much smoother than yesterday!


there is a darling bead shop called ‘beads by the bay’ where i get stuff when i’m in a crunch.  it’s also great for

inspiration. in the back they have a huge garden and she let the boys feed the fish.


i was about to take a close-up pic of this flower when a butterfly landed right on it.  what a show-off.


i found this tool box for $5 at one my favorite thrift stores

and we ate mexican food at ‘mi casa’ across from this painted wall.

next on my to-do list?  maybe a little snooze, then dinner with friends tonight.

happy saturday!!

    Are those plants “Hens & Chicks”? I love those!! Sounds like a beautiful day. I’m trying hard not to envy your 65F weather, we’re hitting frost and fleece season here. It’s much earlier than usual…

    Morro bay is fun…especially in the fall with less tourists! We like to go & treat ourselves to some fish n’ chips and/or clam chowder after looking around at the shops. My absolute favorite store there is the Garden Gallery….talk about inspiration!!

  7. Your photos are unbelieveable! Iam so thankful to have a creative outlet I’m my life also. There is just something about creating with your hands that is so satisfying. I make cards and, like your jewelry, I know that each one will make someone happy!

    Great pictures!
    Any chance you will ever do anything with an owl on it?
    I am still so stuck on owls!

    The toolbox reminds me of one my dad had when I was a kid :) Are those mexican roses or hens & chicks? I have some hens & chicks in a pot on my patio. I love them. So glad you had a better day!

  11. Was a great day wasn’t it? I spent the day trail running, kayaking on the estuary and hiking across the sand spit with friends. There is no place on earth like Morro Bay.
