Summer Trip - Part 1

We began our trip in Seattle at Dahlia, a lovely restaurant with amazing decor and delicious food

These three charming paintings greeted us when we came in the door

Hand made paper and woven lamp

Onions made out of wood

A beautiful transparent handmade fish

A show of the restaurant and the lamps

Taking the ferry to Bainbridge Island
Flowers on the walk to breakfast

I think these might be pretty hard to draw

I always love visiting Town & Country market on Bainbridge.  Their produce department is amazing. Blackberries and currants!

The entire row is filled with every kind of mushroom. Be still my heart
This is the beauty that awaited us at the Inn at Vineyard Lane. It's kinda off the beaten path, but so gorgeous.

My long time friend, Jayne Larson and me - such a great visit!

My kindred spirit Sue Morton and me.  We have known each other for 29 years and we share the love of art!
