They're Back!


ESTATE SALES


My favorite way to start the weekend!


My brother and his wife surprised us and met us there!


 The best things I saw were


this gigantic slide rule



and this wonderful old trunk an early bird scored for $6 bucks!


My peeps
worked up an appetite so we headed off to...


Alice Water's "other" restaurant named after her daughter, Fanny.


We patiently waited in line and ordered poached eggs with prosciutto on leviathan bread and bowls of latte's with Strauss Dairy milk






We considered an order of beignets but decided to pass.



We waited patiently for our food to arrive...


and then after breakfast popped into


 the adjacent wine merchant



to check out their offerings


before bidding our good-byes.

How do you typically spend your Saturday mornings?

What a nice sale...I love that slide ruler! Breakfast looked wonderful!

Saturday mornings around here are very slow and relaxed...the afternoons are for getting out and about!

Every day is started with a huge latte delivered bedside by my husband; how fabulous is that? Then it is off to the easel for a few hours of painting.

On another note, your mother's hair is spectacular!

The perfect day! I would do exactly what you did! In fact, if I can get moving, I'm going to the Candlestick Antique/Flea Faire today with best friend Maureen and her husband. Hope the weather is as nice as it was for you! Great post Terri. Looking forward to the White Elephant sale. I'm in!

Saturdays? Usually a private French lesson and then out to take photos, but I'll catch up with you for an outing like this... We will have the beignets!

Looks like great fun... love an estate sale but have not been to one in awhile

Bises,
