~Washington Coast Road Trip and Simple & Sweet Fridays #156~

Our trip to the Washington coast was so much fun.
I wanted to share some photos of our vacation.
This is a photo of Ruby Beach where they filmed,
 The Twilight Series.
We were lucky with the weather.
It just drizzled a little, perfect for hiking along the coast.
Here is another spot where they filmed, "The Twilight Series".

Ocean Shores was a gorgeous peninsula.

NatureBridge.
A beautiful place.

A charming little town called, 
Seabrook.

The World's Largest Spruce Tree.
It was spectacular!

~Lake Crescent~

We loved the Lake Quinault Lodge.
~Beautiful Views~


We saw lots of different animals;
Deer, Elk and Buffalo.
Lake Townsend was a gorgeous seaport.
We stayed the night at the Palace Hotel.

If you're ever in Lake Townsend you have to stop at Petals.
A very cute flower shop with lots of treasures for your garden.


Our last stop was a wonderful nursery and greenhouse called,
Christianson's.
 My friend, Mary, told us we had to visit if we were in Mt.Vernon.
We weren't disappointed.
I'll share photos next week.

~Miniature Farm Tablescape~

I thought it would be a fun, whimsical tablescape if I set the 
table outside with a rustic miniature farm scene. 

After taking out all my little miniatures I've collected over the years, 
I realized how much I had to use.

It definitely inspired me for Spring.

I set another outdoor vignette with things I love.

Pretty sunflowers from Trader Joe's.
A spotting of a new visitor.


Hope you all have wonderful surprises this week!!

~Create, Cook and Garden and Simple & Sweet Fridays #155~

I love creating new projects.
We saw this idea using scrapbook paper to make a lampshade.
All you need is a wine glass, scissors, double sided tape, 
scrapbook paper, template and LED tea light.
We found the idea from Good Housekeeping.
I have lots of craft paper and found
 this romantic paper for the project.
You can make a romantic setting, 
just by using paper and a wine glass. 
I had some pretty rose scrapbook paper.
Another idea for a charming tablescape.
Carly made some rosemary focaccia last night 
from a recipe she found online.
It was a delicious!
Stan and I just got back from a road trip in the Pacific Northwest.
We found lots of wonderful shops in
Aberdeen, Quinault, Seabrook, Lake Townsend, Whidbey Island, Mt. Vernon and Seattle.
I'll share photos of the trip next week.
Can't wait to go back,
it was just BEAUTIFUL!!
I wanted to share photos of our garden this week.
~Sunset in San Diego~


Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
Looking forward to more inspiring ideas this week!
