Welcome to all the many new and returning friends. Glad you have come for a visit.
Yesterday I went to Healdsburg, California. Healdsburg has a traditional downtown square edged by stores and businesses. In the middle of wine country it has evolved into a very trendy place. Wonderful shops, bookstores and cafes. The little fabric store is stocked with exquisite fabric some rarely seen in chain stores. The Swiss eyelet trim was so fine it looked handmade. I spent at least an hour if not more slowly looking at every bolt.
These are photos from the web as I did not have a camera with me. Next time I will take pictures inside some shops that you would just love.
I really needed to get out of the house and visit with a dear friend.
A while ago I posted an antique marriage certificate. I have since learned how to straighten, crop and paint an image. So here it is again. It is so beautiful!

Well it is time to tend to other things(like hot chocolate) for a while. Much love Louise
