I loved seeing all the cute little animals hanging out in the shops in paris and amsterdam! I know the last picture is not that great but I just couldn't leave that cute little guy out he was just looking at me so sweetly and posed like that for 3 or 4 shots! The shop photos are a little blurry but these kitties were so sweet and friendly whenever I would try to take a photo they move to come say hello! And the title of the post? Michael's cleverness....

Well, the sketchbook deadline has been extended until Tuesday so I have spent a marathon day today (over 12 hours!) working on it. I'm still not quite sure I'm going to be able to finish it up but I am in serious need of a break. I thought I would share a few recent flea market finds with you! It was a rainy day and the deals were out of this world!! Be back soon with some sketches (maybe)! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I probably won't be putting any new posts until next weekend. You see I signed up for the Sketchbook Project. When, you ask? Oh let's see... in October!! I have been putting it off as I have been having the hardest time actually starting. My theme is: down your street. I have given this a lot of thought and come up with many ideas but none that i was incredibly pleased with. Well, now has come the time to put idea to paper, crunch time. I have until Saturday, Jan. 15th to fill up all forty pages. Yep, that's six days. So, as you can guess every spare minute I have I will be working on this. If it starts to come along okay I might post some pictures of my progress. I'll definitely give a peak when I'm done and the whole book will be digitized for online viewing as part of the project so i'll pass along that information too. So, until Saturday. Wish me luck. I need it.

I am so excited that I finally got to make it out to General Store! The store was laid out beautifully and had a warm and inviting feel to it. They had many beautiful items selected to drool over but I was smitten with all the cool lamps they had. I even got to say hello to a cute doggie that was quietly going to and fro in the shop. She reminded me so much of Sadie!! After I left the shop I came across a cute little coffee shop right next door. I was lured in by the look of the place and soon I found myself sipping a coffee and trying to keep myself from buying one of their delicious cookies, which they told me they serve with a shot of milk! The rest of the photos I took while wandering around Golden Gate Park.

Yesterday afternoon we took Sadie on a walk in San Francisco. It was cold, windy, and rainy but also incredibly beautiful. With a fresh rain everything was incredibly vibrant and green. We came across this cool installation in the Presidio created for the American Robin by Philippe Becker Design. The phrases describe robin behavior and the letters are filled with straw which provides nesting material for the robins. The creaking of the tall trees above and the birds singing happily all around created a very magical environment.
