Upscale Resale

This week I did one of my random stops at Upscale Resale which has become a favorite haunt of mine. (More to show you on why in a later post.)  I could not pass up this precious bowl.  The shape and the colors...OMG would you not have to take it home?  Then I made about 10 more stops and arrived home six hours later.  Grabbed my packages...you already know where this is going don't you?  Yep, the one bag that slipped from my hands was the delicate little bowl wrapped in only one layer of tissue paper.  You're hoping I was cutting acoss the lawn and this story is going to have a happy ending.  Sorry!  I was on the brick walk and was I every sorry.  I should have taken a picture of the 12  sad looking pieces lying inside the tissue but, honestly, I was not thinking about blogging about this at the time.  All I could think of was how to make this end on a more positive note. 
The fact that it only cost $5 did not do it.  But a little glue did.
  Will it hold water?  Get serious!  But to the casual glance it looks perfect.

Morning Coffee

Today I sweetened my morning coffee with a divine raspberry and white chocolate scone on the rear patio of the Gelateria.




I enjoyed the solitude and observed a few things.




What did I do to deserve such a long time out?

The sign in the window....just curious.



I've seen you around.  What's your name?
It seems I wasn't really alone after all.
