Monday morning out and about



This morning, I went to West Seattle to get several things framed at Northwest Art & Frame. For those of you in the area who don't know about this business, I can't say enough good things about it! The store carries lots of ready-made frames to choose from in every imaginable size, and offers supplies and work space for doing every part of the framing process yourself, with standby assistance from store staff. It's worth it to me to drive across town whenever I want something framed.

I was dragging a bit, so I went across the street to Cupcake Royale for a coffee (no cupcake today, alas). We used to live near their original coffeeshop/bakery and, when Cal was a baby, I walked there at least once a day (they are strategically located next to the neighborhood park). I found the frosting on a cupcake packs as much of an energy punch as any coffee beverage I might order; a huge help in those days with a newborn and intermittent sleep. Their business seems to be thriving, now with multiple locations, including this one I visited today in West Seattle.

I hope your Monday was a nice one.

Gorgeous photos. We had dinner with a woman from Seattle last week, she loves her city, and I could just see all your photos while she was talking about it.

I loved the street scene with the red light hanging down - very old school.

I think I am relieved that we never had a cupcake shop!

Beautiful pictures! Makes me wish I got out and about a bit more often.

I keep coming back to these pictures because I love the ones from Cupcake Royale! All the sweets and the pink cups and mixers! Good thing there isn't one too very close and accessable to where I live! Margaret
