Fremont Sunday Market

Today I went to Fremont's Sunday Market-vintage and new. It's always fun to go and look for goodies and inspiration. The weather hasn't been great this week but I took a chance and the sun came out just as I arrived. This morning I've been looking at other bloggers who are in Roundtop Texas at a large antique show-The Present Past- and was very jealous. Fremont isn't quite the same but I did find a cute yellow chair.

Spa Day

On Wednesday Jill and I had a very nice spa day at Bee Hive Day Spa located in downtown Snohomish. Our relaxing spa experience began when we were greeted in the charming lobby which is decorated very cute and offered a yummy cup of tea. My friend Tanya, the owner, treated me to a Beehive Signature facial. It was wonderful and relaxing, but best of all my skin looks great and younger... The products she uses are all high quality organic ingredients and they smell terrific. I purchased an almond exfoliate by Eminence and I can't wait to try it.
Jill took the sole challenge with an Ionic Foot Detox Bath-Body Cleanse. This treatmet pulls out and neutralizes toxins from within your body creating clearer healthier skin and optumum overall health. The next day Jill felt great and decided to sign up for more treatments.

Artful blogging

One thing I've learned during my brief blogging experience is that taking pictures is an art and a skill.

I thought today I would practice taking artful pictures of some of my collections.....
