Sunday in the City.

This Sunday afternoon I was so happy and relieved to back home in San Francisco, in my humble little abode, well...I just never left it. I curled up in my comfiest clothes, lit a fire and sat down to get some work done. Then I realized...what's for Sunday in the City? So I gathered up some of my very favorite belongings...treasures around my apartment that mean a lot to me, or perhaps creatively symbolize what defines me, what's important to me, or words I live by.

Look at the Birdie.


Simple Beliefs.


Mornings Start with Good Coffee.


Dare to Make Mistakes.


Believe in Dogs.


Take Time for Tea.


Find Diamonds in the Rough.


Toast to Paris.


A Little Uncertainty is Good.

I'm a new reader. I can't believe I never followed the links before when I saw your name.

This is wonderful. Wonderful ideas and images.

I love the juxtaposition of objects, and the text that goes along with them.

I am always a sucker for a good image with an enlightening title.
