Two is better than one!

I had a deadline last week … a baby shower for my daughter-in-law over the weekend. Nothing better than a deadline to get me shopping for furniture to update the living room. So it was Potter Barn or Pier I, since I had 10% off coupons for both stores. I know I can always find something at Pier I and I was right. I got a floor lamp to match the table lamp I bought several months ago. I love how the gold in the shade vibrates off the taupe depending on what time of day it is. lamp

I also found two end tables at Pottery Barn that I put together to make a coffee table.

Check out these two:

Roost in Spokane

I was downtown last week to check out the vegan bakery Boots on (approximately) Main & Division and was pleasantly surprised. While waiting in line for my vegan chocolate cupcakes for Valentine’s Day I felt like I’d been picked up and plunked down in Portlandia! I love Portlandia … it makes me miss Portland even more though. I turned to the woman behind me and said as much. Her reply? “You are in Portlandia.” She said she was a transplant here due to her husband’s job move.

And since I was right across the street, I popped over to Roost to check out their inventory. Pleasantly surprised was I, when I found a darling little, pink ceramic flower pot, a bird cage top, shabby black bucket, pink bud vase and a couple of nests. We’ll be using lots of nests etc. for Lola’s Girls birds in upcoming shows. Here’s a quick photo of my treasures. Oh and the candy dish on the left is one I bought there a couple weeks ago and filled with Pottery Barn’s artichokes.

I just had lunch at Chaps on Highway 195 … met Celeste Shaw, the owner and ahhh curator of the place. The food there is always beyond the best and today I learned a bit about the owner. She’s addicted to “stuff.” I can relate. She used to be a critical care nurse. Instead of taking care of people, now she’s caring for vintage architectural and vintage “stuff.” I’m going to pitch someone a story about her.


Shaw is very talented at the curating and repurposing aspects. She owns a store in Spokane called Pink; tagline is “vintage salvage goods.” I think I’ve been there … it’s located at 154 South Madison in Spokane.



Here’s the link to her site:



Psst…. she also has a big barn and plans to have a barn sale this spring. Stay tuned.

Apple Super heroes!

My addendum to the last post? That I went to the Apple store a couple of weeks ago and told them my sad tale … no expecting anything mind you. After hearing my story, they decided to replace my ipad with a new one!!! I was stunned. I hadn’t expected anything much less a new ipad! Here’s the photo of the old ipad:

See the corner? Its bent back and didnt help the audio functions!

Next is a photo of Apple iPad guy #2 smiling for the camera.

Apple guy #2.

I couldn’t resist. Suffice it to say that I’m a happer camper! And a lifelong Apple devotee as well.
