More Pumpkins

Yesterday I had a lovely time in downtown Chico. My sewing buddy Gail had some gift certificates to spend and she invited me along. We spent most of the afternoon roaming the streets and checking out stores. We had lunch at a local bakery, Tin Roof. In my humble opinion, they have some of the best bread. I wish my bread was as tasty, but then again maybe not, I'd be eating it all day.
We had turkey sandwiches on rosemary focaccia, yummy! Then after walking around a bit, and had a scoop of ice cream at another local shop, Shubert's . They have been in business since 1938 and have always made their own ice cream, again, yummy!
While wandering around, Gail bought me these salt and pepper shakers. They are the orangy ones, front and center. She is feeding my addiction!
She knows how much I love pumpkins and when she saw these shakers, she insisted on buying them for me. Thank you Gail! They fit in perfectly. Now they have a family.
I figured while I was taking a picture of the shakers, I might as well take a picture of the whole mantle. Especially since I never did get around to sewing! Too much shopping and having fun with Gail, makes a girl not want to sew.
Have a great weekend and I'll see you all back here on Monday.
Take care, Brandie
