San Francisco Trip

Mr. B and I finally got away for a brief vacation. We traveled up north to the Bay area to visit my brother, and site see in the city.
We really enjoyed our "new" car (the outback that we bought last year) especially for this trip. It made the road time quite easy. Heated seats, roomy and the back up camera came in handy for parallel parking on the busy streets.

We walked the whole Embarcadero to Fisherman's Wharf. We were really excited to check out in detail this WWII Submarine. The USS Pampanito.

I saw this "Rosie the Riveter" cut out and I couldn't resist. I have always loved that poster, and what it represented back then. Us DIY-er women can do anything!

I Loved these! We were walking towards a gourmet doughnut shop (more on that soon) and we walked through a very Hispanic influenced part of the city, it was so cool. They had great big murals on the sides of buildings, and tons of fab looking little restaurants in small spaces. We could have spent a day there.
These sugar skulls were set out for Dia de los Muertos, and you could decorate your own inside. Sadly they were closed that day or I would have totally gone home with one of my own.

Here I am enjoying the best doughnut I have ever had. We were in "Dynamo Donuts" in SF. The one I was holding in this picture was a Molasses Guinness Pear. OMG!

Yeah this pretty much sums it up.

Mr. B's favorite was the Bacon Maple Apple. Check out this shop if you have time and are in San Fran, its worth it.

The next morning after we came home from our trip, I headed out to my knitting class, and on the way home I went to check out the Pottery Barn for ideas. I often DIY their decor items for the holidays. Well this time I fell in love with bedding
I picked up this beautiful Duvet and Euro case from the "Alisa" line. It was on Sale!!

It's thick linen style cotton with beautiful floral embroidery.

I just love the French Knots. They have such a great texture, and the embroiderer in me appreciates the hand work to achieve them.

I really love how a change of a little bedding can transform the whole room. The colors are great in this set, they just go with everything.
