El llamo ‘el guapo.’ He’s the Vegas baby in the family, and he is a handsome one.
Fun in Vegas. Fleur restaurant by Hubert Kellar, where I ate and loved grilled octopus with patatas bravas. Oh, and the Cirque’s Michael Jackson show.
Visit from Aunt Nean and she brought such a cute succulent plant design in baby Vans….so adorbs!
For the past six months, I have not been posting as much on tumblr or www.gardenenvy.net, and I have not played at least daily with my loyal opponent on WordsWithFriends. But for good reason! I have been busy working on a couple of new ventures.
One will remain a mystery, let’s just say, and the other is a small business making succulent plant designs. I became obsessed with succulents in the past several months I named my business GardenEnvy, of course.
I am happy to say that some of my designs are available at Root 75, a great florist shop at 845 Orange Avenue in Coronado, California! Root 75 was selected as the best in San Diego in 2013 by San Diego magazine. I also want to thank the Gila Rut Aveda Salon in Otay Ranch mall for offering to display my work in their salon! I have been changing up the centerpiece on their wait table every couple of weeks or so.
I also started an Etsy shop, MyGardenEnvy, where I will sell some of the smaller items that can be easily shipped.
Meanwhile, I have a couple of garden visits to blog about soon on www.gardenenvy.net!
So this pig sits above the door on the inside of the first Starbucks at Pike Place. I would have never seen it, but my husband pointed it out. We found out she is known as “Pork and Beans” (she is covered in coffee beans). The pig is a recurring motif here at the public market in Seattle because it used to be a livestock area.
Crazy good lunch, early Valentine’s day for us, at Elliott’s Oyster House on the pier in Seattle. Oysters, smoked salmon and crab cakes, chowder and a French white muscadet. And a view of the water, of course.
