The one with the great inventory

Saffron and Genevieve will turn THREE in 2 weeks! I think it's come a long way and is always evolving, as am I. I will be hosting a party to celebrate on Saturday, September 6. I am very excited about the tomato tasting I will have. Heirloom tomatoes with a delicious tomato topping bar, as well as local wines to complement. If I am lucky (and I think I am), Jeffery from Vinocruz will come and pour and talk about the wines. I have not decided on the tomato grower yet, let me know if you have a favorite, as mine at home are not even close to ripe. (coffee table SOLD)
Of course there will be a big sale. I am off to Texas again at the end of September and plan on bringing back a 16' truck full of great finds. There are a few things here that I really don't want to part with, but I know I will need the room, and it's time for change. (ships table SOLD)
Wing chair SOLD
I mentioned my trunk problem a while back.
This very cute cot/bed with a new cushion needs a home. Hmmm, now that I think about it, I might have a spot at my house.

The one where I talk about other blogs

I've been busy lately reading other blogs, rather than writing on mine. It's addictive and there are so many amazingly creative and super nice people out there in blogland. On Friday I got a wonderful write up on the home by sunset blog by the great Sarah Gaffney from Sunset Magazine. She is working hard on the 2008 Monterey Bay Idea House. When it's complete you must visit, I saw it in progress and it is very cool already, lots of ideas.
Also on Friday the fabulous Claudia Strasser from The Paris Apartment gave Saff and Gen a little props and a thanks for suggesting places to visit in our fair state. I don't know where she found the best pictures of my favorite places, but I can't wait to hear how she liked her trip.
If you are looking for great ideas, beautiful pictures, fun stories or whatever might be posted that day, look to your right and click on some of the sites I like to visit.
*Update on 8-26. A couple of people have just let me know that my blog does not allow comments. I am so bummed that I missed out for so long! I thought I had it set for me to moderate, because of the spam I was getting, but took it away completely. Please, write away! I would love your feedback!
