Hello! It’s time for my Five Faves like a fireplace makeover with paint, my versatile pleated knit skirt (dress it up or down), things to do if you are coming to San Francisco, and something to make you smile! Annie and Cindy have their Five Faves too with links at the end of the post.
1. If You Are Coming To San Francisco…
“Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair…” And add these things to your list of things to do…
Have lunch or dinner at Cafe Zoetrope. It’s a cool environment in a historic building, owned by Francis Ford Coppola. The service is friendly service and the food is great!
After dinner here, Howard and I went to the brand new, awesome show.
“Dear San Francisco” at Club Fugazi
It’s an amazing poetical, acrobatic show in a smaller theater. It is sometimes frightening with displays against gravity. I’d like to see it again.
2. Fall Outfit: Pleated Knitted Midi Skirt From Anthropologie
On our “date night,” I wore this comfortable midi skirt (comes in regular and petite), with black booties, a black short-sleeved turtleneck, and a denim jacket. I will get a lot of use out of the skirt through the holidays. Ha! It has an expandable waistline.

3. Nancy Meyers Film By Jimmy Fallon And Chris Stapleton
As someone who watches a lot of Nancy Meyers movies (especially during football season), this really cracked me up!
4. Blue Printed Linen Pillow
I was at Pottery Barn last week with my client, Laura to pick up some accessories for her new family room and we both liked this reasonably priced pillow (the fabric is similar to a Ralph Lauren one that I have used).

5. Fireplace Makeover With Paint To Resemble Slate
I said to my client, Kathy in North Carolina, that her fireplace surround color wasn’t doing us any favors. I thought we (meaning she) should paint it a black matte so that it would look like honed slate or granite with black grout. Easy for me to say but she got right to work priming it with Stix Waterborne Bonding primer and painting it with Benjamin Moore floor and patio low sheen enamel latex. The paint color uses the formula for Behr Slate.
