Hollywood Forever, Kevin that is!
Lucky me, I got to spend a little time with one of my favorite bloggers and friend Kevin Beer over the weekend.
He was in The Bay Area for a family wedding and managed to squeeze me in for a little fun before heading back to his West Hollywood bungalow.
We met last year when we brought our son to UCLA and have developed a wonderful friendship.
The last time we were in LA we met him at his favorite neighborhood flea market, so it was only fair that I took him to an estate sale or two in my neighborhood on Saturday afternoon.
He found a few things...
and if you know Kevin...
a rather scary looking one at that.
I spied it for him, detached and wretched, sitting there on a bookshelf hoping to be noticed and rescued.
As you can see the house was packed, in fact my mom and I had gone the day before and we could barely negotiate our way around between the piles of stuff and the people who were lined up in the rain to get in!
By the time Kevin and I arrived the next afternoon I couldn't believe how much had sold, but there still were plenty of treasures to be had.
As I was touring him around Alameda we spied another estate sale so of course we went inside to check it out. He emerged with a homemade box and I came out with what else but 2 shells to add to my growing collection! Most of you know I cannot resist a shell, what can't you resist when you are on the hunt?
Tired and hungry we arrived home to a fabulous home cooked meal by my amazing husband. My mom joined us and we talked the night away as we watched Oregon beat Stanford... now that was a bit of a shocker!
Kevin was the 1st official guest to stay in our new "guest room." He said he slept like a baby and emerged in the morning fresh faced and handsome as ever!
We bid him farewell and safe travels and then spent the rest the weekend paying bills!
What did you do over the weekend?
