Fridays Fave Five

1. Dear and I were well enough to have our Saturday walk and this time around we opted to head north and have breakfast at Cold Springs Tavern tucked away in the San Marcos Pass above Santa Barbara. After breakfast we took a foggy/misty walk along the shore and to the Andree Clark Bird Preserve in Santa Barbara.


2. I made one of Dear’s favorite Italian dishes this week Puttanesca and I’ll be sharing the recipe soon.


3. I really enjoy finding a bargain and this week I bought a White French Ruffle twin duvet cover at Goodwill for $7.95. It’s from the Target Shabby Chic line. When I was in Target later in the week I saw it on the rack for $69.95! Oh and I don’t have any twin size beds. I bought it to use as a tablecloth. Here’s a photo of it on the table straight out of the package with some added pretties on top…


4. I got to see some great photos of my sweet niece and I’m sharing it today for my Happy Halloween post and my Pink Saturday Post combined! Pure Pink Sweetness happening here!


5. It’s been cooler this week so it’s been easier on Willow and I on our walks. The Mule Deer love it, too.


My computer is acting up and I’m hoping it fixes itself soon. When I access blogs from my WordPress blog things seem to work fine but if I go to the linkies or google reader and try to access blogs I get booted out and my page shuts down.  Where did all my great background color and design disappear to? Wah, wah, wah….

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and demanding a ransom for me to access them. I’m slowly cleaning up many of my posts where PB have added ugly black and grey boxes where my photos used to be. So frustrating!

  1. I love all your pictures. That first one of the pond is a wonderful shot. You have the nicest places to walk. And seeing deer all the time, how exciting! That is the cutest little pink butterfly (?) that I’ve seen in awhile. Look at that smile!

    When something goes awry on my computer it totally stresses me out. Hope it fixes itself quick for you!

  2. Wow – you are such a smart lady using a duvet cover for a tablecloth! I have never thought of that before… lovely tablesetting. And I see you have put those fruits to good use!! Simply lovely. 🙂

    I am sorry to hear about your computer problems… your comments on my blog are coming through fine. I didn’t know if that would help with your troubleshooting.

  3. Hi Ellen…Your photography is always so impressive from beginning to end!
    Does a beautiful place like #1 actually exist? How beautiful the path you chose to walk & enjoy with Dear one. How gorgeous the deer you captured
    enjoying the beauty of nature as well. Your creative display and bargain are the best for that delicious looking puttanesca Italian dish…so elegant your dining delight! Who would have thought! But that pink butterfly in the pumpkin patch is the most adorable blessing! Indeed pure pink sweetness!
    Hope you can continue enjoying your walks & have a great weekend!

  4. I swear – you and Willow live in an incredibly beautiful area – your pictures are absolutely stunning! I’m not much of a walker but if I lived in an area like yours – I think I would change my mind.

  5. Great list! I love that first picture. I looks like a postcard. And that little pink niece is sweet enough to eat!
    The dinner looks so good. I love olives … who thought to put them in an pasta meal???

    Have a great weekend.
