girls weekend

i just got back from a much needed girl’s weekend with my friend beth. i feel inspired, excited and super tired. ;) i have SO much to share with all of you this week, i feel like it’ll be nothing more than a SF weekend recap all week but i know you’ll want to hear all about it.

highlights : the view of the ferry building from the hotel terrace in the embarcadero was amazing (see above). the farmers market on saturday. the salvage yard where i scored the cutest old bookcase with a vintage window door for $30 (beth, you need a truck next time!!) and the piles of pink chippy wood trim. the beet salad & caramelized onion/garlic pizza pie we had for lunch in north beach. the 1811 linen parchments i scored at the most amazing shop in a north beach back street for $1 each. i know!! the best seafood resturant ever. the alameda flea market.

the only sad moment? realizing i didn’t spend nearly enough time talking with other girl friends we saw at the flea and realizing i didn’t see one at all. guh.

thank goodness it was just what i needed.
happy monday!

alameda

my amazing friend dina came up for for a girls weekend while my man was out of town and the littles were safely tucked away at team grandma’s houses. we got inky & painty in the garage on sunday, we started planning & experimenting with some things for later this fall/winter and then sunday morning we headed out to the alameda flea market as dina had never been.

oh that sweet face. this was taken at the beginning of our treasure hunting, after this it was alot of sour sad faces because everything D wanted was big & she couldn’t drag it home on the plane later that afternoon. i kept offering to “store” it for her {ie : use it as it lived with me} but it didn’t fly. next time she’s driving up.

i LOVED this huge tree stump island. seriously cool.

ran into cute shelly!

drooled over this gorgeous french beaded flower wall medallion. it was enormous, as in 2.5 high enormous and so beautiful.

 

these upholstered chairs were gorgeous. the dealer had a few different designs and i saw a few other dealers had similar reupholstered chairs with vintage inspired fabrics.

this booth had the most amazing furniture. all repurposed with stripped wood. every single piece was already sold, but this one was calling to me. perfect for the family room as an entertainment hutch to put the tv on. i love the battered and worn.

the same booth also had an old “gone with the wind” marquee set but i only wanted the wind part. how awesome would this be in a men’s bathroom as a hip restaurant? can you imagine the rmearks the guys would have when coming back to the table? priceless.

happy monday!
