Received: Little Girl Sun Hat from ProjectsGirl Michelly

Last December I won a Little Girls Hat made by ProjectsGirl Michelly

I had Michelly mail the hat directly to the daughter of a friend with a new baby, but forgot to ask that new mother to send me a photo when the hat was received.

Last week I took a little trip and visited the new family and finally got to see the hat!

It is so cute and so well made too!

These and other items are available thru her etsy shop!

Thanks again Michelly!


This was my first visit to Daly City, CA.

I was in the Westlake area. It's about 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco, and this part was within walking distance of anything one would need to live. The houses seem to be built at the same time, but each had a unique personality. * Wikipedia: Westlake is notable for its distinct architecture and for being among the earliest examples of a planned, large-tract suburb; it was the inspiration for Malvina Reynolds' song, "Little Boxes."

A fun quilt could be made of these houses with their different roof lines, front steps, and yards...

 Slanted window glass!

Little animals looking out the front windows waiting for their family to return home...

 These houses were right next to each other and were the only houses I saw that had pets looking out.

We also went to San Francisco Union Square for a little concert - lots of folks still identifying with the hippie movement...  It was fun to enjoy the music and see the people.

I remembered visiting a chocolate shop a few years ago but couldn't remember the location so went in this men's store to see if the shop was still around.  This guy had the neatest tie knot ever so I asked him if I could take a photo.  He said sure - then looked off in the distance so he looked like a model... (Double click to enlarge and see the knot!)

I got to the chocolate store too late to buy any, but it was fun to look thru the window to see the treats.

Later that evening we had a wonderful Cioppino dinner at Fog Harbor on Fisherman's Wharf.

We went to JCPenney's one day to have the baby's photo taken.
What a hoot to see the photographers and mother try to make the little one smile!

I was lucky to get to go on this little trip with my friend... so she did not have to stay alone in the hotel for the visit with her granddaughter and daughter!

It was an honor to share the time.
