Last week I enjoyed a special shopping day with a good friend. I call it a "Kathysue day". A day that is good for the mind, body and spirit! The weather could not have been more beautiful. The warmth of the sun as we talked and visited felt glorious. The sharing and laughter were such good medicine for both the body and the spirit. It was a perfect day!
This was Kathysue's first visit to San Anselmo so we began our visit at the Laurel House at the Marin Art and Garden Center. It is a lovely location and the selection on consignment at this shop is always changing. The quality of their pieces is consistently lovely. It seems I never come away empty handed!
So many pretty things!
Oh the china!
Oh the crystal!
I loved this little ink well. It was bronze and marble from France!
When I told Kathysue I was taking her to a toy store I know she couldn't have imagined a store as much fun as Susan's Store Room! It is located on San Anselmo Ave. in San Anselmo California. It is filled with all sorts of unusual toys for young and old alike. I promise you - you have never seen anything like it! Kathysue found a beautiful 3-D book for her granddaughter and I purchased my valentines there, but if I were feeling rich I could have bought so much more!
Isn't he gorgeous!
This was my big purchase of the day! It is made by Noritake, is blue and gold and has a hand painted pastoral scene on it . It was $42.00 and I thought it it would go well with my china. I purchased this at the Laurel House.
This is my china pattern. I thought my new purchase would go well with it. It is made by Noritake also and the pattern is Foxboro.
A few valentines I purchased at Susan's Store Room. I hope to use them as some sort of centerpiece for a Valentine get together I am planning.... Perhaps they will show up on a table scape Tuesday!
What a wonderful day! Thank you Kathysue for making it so enjoyable!
