Tallulah-Palooza Friday

 "May I help you?"
 "Oh really?!"
"I cannot with you, human!"

Fun Fall Flower

My favorite rose bush is still producing the odd flower, even though it's the week before Thanksgiving (how did THAT happen? Where did 2017 go?). It is gorgeous and smells heavenly.

The fall roses are actually often nicer--there are fewer of them, but they are relatively untouched by pests...

Fun Fall Outing, 2017 Edition

 Mini road trip!
 Out to the north (and a bit east) part of San Diego agricultural!
 Destination: Gems of Pala, where you can pan through a bucket o' rocky material in search of, well, gems! The Stewart Lithia mine from which this material comes is known for tourmaline, but there is LOTS of quartz and some lepidolite (shiny purple). 

 B.'s haul...
 And mine...lepidolite in lower left corner. Many of these rocks were kept just because they are pretty or interesting! Foziewisp overload!
And we were hot and thirsty so we stopped for a beer and some potato chips, the lunch of champions.

A VERY VERY fun time was had by all (including Tallulah Mae, who rode along in the back).

The Hits Just Keep Coming... camera doesn't capture red very well--I've seen others' photos that are REALLY impressive!

Flea Sunday

My booth at the San Diego Vintage Flea Market on Sunday...first--and LAST--time selling at a vintage flea market. SO. MUCH. WORK!

"Come buy me," she was saying...but no one did.

A grey grey day yielded this magnificence...

Dog Star

This handsome fellow--he is Komondor, a Hungarian herding dog breed--was the crowd favorite at the vintage flea market on Sunday. He was quite mellow and allowed himself to be in many selfies.

 So many dogs there, of all shapes and sizes. There was a little blue-eyed pitbull puppy that was OUR fave--too much cuteness!

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

Outtakes from the Halloween photo shoot...Tallulah Mae has NEVER been terribly cooperative when you put something on her, but now that she is a grumpy elder dog, it's almost impossible!

First pot of tea and digestives of the season--yay!

Happy Hoot-howl-een!

Um, or "Happy Halloween" from me and Tallulah Mae, the reluctant model.
She rejected this one--too showy...

Halloweenie Fun

Remember this? The fab red vintage tractor has gone away, alas, but this super-cool mini-car has appeared. And the creepy pumpkin-head man is now joined by two clowns. How I love this!

Hope Springs Eternal: Artichoke Edition

A teeny-tiny artichoke plant, which must be grown in a pot because of the effing gophers: remember this? And this?

Fingers crossed!

Getting Our Halloween On

It's that time of year again! I love our collection but am thinking it might be time to weed out some of the collection...we're running out of room!
