short study of certain flowers (part 3)

Last time we were at the Farmers' Market Mr. C bought me the loveliest tulips. I can't wait to see what fresh treasures we find today.

rain or shine

The sun is out again here, but clouds are looming over the mountains.

These are some photos from a rainy day walk last weekend. Hope your having a perfect Saturday, rain or shine.

Uhg. Arg. Grrrr.

frustration in a black and white world
Some days are so absolutely frustrating.

I wish I felt more inspired—I would show you some photos taken over the weekend. This week had just got me down. At any rate, I hope you enjoy this photo of agonizing frustration by tay bon.

The Illusionist

Yesterday was our day off so we went to see The Illusionist downtown. It's a new animated feature by the creator of The Triplets of Bellville and it was lovely. If it shows up in a theater near you, run and see it. I don't think it will play on the big screen for long.

Speaking of birthday celebrations, we partied at Skating Plus for my dear friend Ms. Millers happy day.

It's been far too long since I've donned my favorite rollies. I had almost forgotten just how much I love cruising around on four wheels. Oooh, it was so much fun.

I think Ms. M smiled nearly all the night.

The older we get, the more my friends and I seem to celebrate being young at heart. I love growing up.

Valentine Baby

Saturday we went to hight tea at the Montecito Biltmore for my mom's birthday.

It's becoming somewhat of a tradition to celebrate there (you might remember last year's post). Rather than birthday cake, we have divine little sandwiches, kir royals and, of course, tea.

I had the peach & ginger loose leaf. And for desert...

... a 3 tiered tray of the most beautiful sweet treats.

It seems fitting to celebrate the birth of a Valentine Baby with such an elegant affair. We always get dressed up in our fancies and valet park. It's such a luxury, but one that I know my mother really and truly enjoys.

His & Hers

I came home today to a handmade Valentine from my sweetheart...

... and he came home to one from me.

Mr. C and I have been dreadfully ill for these days leading up to the St. Valentine Holiday. We really we're too bad off to plan anything super special. But I love that rather than running out to buy each other last minute gifts, we both took time out of our days to hand craft true-love Valentines. I sure love that man.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone. And happy birthday Mom.
