Friday Morning in Bellevue, Washington


I rode over to Bellevue this morning to check out the Bellevue Festival of Arts…


There were lots of interesting handcrafted, painted, sculpted, wrought, things to see. I had to take a picture of a quilt for Ivory Spring and a picture of a Knitting booth for Willow. Aren’t those masks made out of feathers interesting? I clocked 7000 steps and decided to go to where I’m willing to spend a lot less on treasures…The Bellevue Goodwill. On my way back to the car I had to take a photo of the reflections in the high rise buildings in downtown Bellevue.


Now off to Goodwill and here’s what I found this trip.


I nabbed a large what looks to be Russian Teapot for $5.99. The Cake plate and cover were $9.00. The sweet plates (6 of them) were $.99 each. The Pink glass tea cups and saucers were $2.99 each (a little pricey) but I think they look great on the mint and pink rose trimmed plates. My favorite purchase today is the “Russian teapot”



I found a couple of Goodwill items for my bloggy friends in Southern California that I’ve gotten together with face to face, Willow and Sara. I met Sara in person at the Getty Villa. I met Willow in my hometown in California. When we are both in town Willow and I try to walk Monday thru Friday.

For Willow from Willow’s Cottage who likes blue, I found this pretty blue decantor/vase (made in Italy)

And for Sara from Much Ado About Something this book that she has been on a quest to find…

I got real nervous when I saw the Edith Holdren book you found at the book store and was happy it wasn’t this one. So you can stop looking, Sara.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone…

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage on their site and have replaced my photos with black and grey boxes of ugliness. I’m slowly deleting those boxes from my blog and trying to update so many posts, very frustrating.
