If you want to come to San Francisco…you should come now! It’s gorgeous and there are so many fun things to do for a fall weekend in San Francisco.
This is the view from where I type! Notice no fog 🙂 ? Yay!
On Friday, (Fleet Week) the Blue Angels arrived… (view from the kitchen).
On Saturday, our friends, JoAnn and Larry came with us on a San Francisco Walking Tour of Chinatown (I’ve also done the Japanese Tea Garden…and want to do them all). It’s free by volunteers (donation recommended).
Nancy, our guide…was amazing. It was such a bad week with the political climate. But as we went through the streets of Chinatown, Nancy asked us to open our hearts to different points of view. She said that we all have more similarities than not. She was talking about the Chinese culture but the message was reassuring. This is a calming temple that we visited.
We worked up an appetite and had reservations at China Live. A cool place you should try…
Get the soup dumplings and blistered green beans!
On Sunday, I got up early and went to the Alameda Point Antiques Faire held on the first Sunday of the month. You can see downtown SF in the background.
Loved these brass African bells used for dancing.
And these simple and pretty French Fall table settings by Elsie Green.
The linen napkins look so fresh with the vintage items.
Some great Indian textile printed pillows
I bought some African bone beads (since I’m always using mine to style client’s homes). They are from Kenya.
And I was back in time to watch the Blue Angels from our dining room again…
It was a great Fall Weekend in San Francisco! Chief wants you to come back on Thursday to see what we did, along with five other friends for “Project Design Welcoming Fall Front Doors and Table Settings.” In my case, it’s mostly my table setting using blue, green and orange…and with existing and new, fresh but reasonably priced items. It’s my birthday today and my family bought me a Kindle Paperwhite from Amazon with a cute case and gift card!…so I am taking the day off to figure it out and do some reading! Got any book recommendations?
Have an awesome week and see you Thursday!
