a horse & a show in fresno

hey guys,  how's it going?
it's going good, here in fresno. we're staying busy these days. werkin', playin' music, just hangin' out, ya know how that goes.
we met someone who plays a lap steel guitar, & played a show with him. we also had a bunch of old timers play as our backing band for a couple songs which was awesome! as much as i like our duo shows, i definitely miss the feeling of a full band.
our new fresno friend said i could have a horse, and keep it on their property! can you believe that? a real life horse, that would be mine. (i'm serious! so crazy.)
well, i had to pass on it, mainly b/c i don't know anything about horses, well & what would i do with the horse if we move from fresno??!

anyway. we had fun at the show, my niece & nephew came to see us play for the first time! after our set,  we all danced and danced for a long time.
we'll have to do it again soon.

flea markets

for some reason, when i'm at a flea market, i get this overwhelming feeling of happiness. i mean, maybe contentment is a better word, b/c it's not like i start skipping & singing, but... i'm just really happy to be there.
this last time we sold at the flea, we went there after camping. so i had my pour over coffee gear with me, & was able to solve my "no good coffee at the flea" dilemma.

it was a chilly gray morning, i had a damn fine cup of coffee in hand, layered in the (very clean) clothing we were selling, walking the isles, "shopping" by taking iphone photos & then showing nate & abby, to try & help decide if i should go back and get some of those items.

i guess that's what's exciting, you never know what you may find. 

maybe a plant stand... (<--got a few;) )
oversized chalkboard (still kicking myself for passing it up last time!)
coral reef, perhaps?mid century furniture?clothes, dishes, cameras for days...

anyway, you know how these things go. maybe it's not your cup of tea, but it's definitely something i love. whether i'm there to sell or to just wonder around.
hope to see ya there next time!

here are a few of my favorite new things we put up on our etsy.  all four pieces were amazing finds by nate! 

1. tan jacket w/ huge collar
2. avant garde shirt/shawl
3. great fitting onsie
4. beautiful soft tunic (reminds me of Suno!)

that's all for now. have a good day!

big sur camping (again!)

we went camping in big sur with a few friends. so lucky to live so close to something so extraordinary. really feels like the edge of the world. 

our friends have two kids who came camping too. the two girls are both hilarious, really smart & we loved hanging out with them. oh & with their parents too ;)

"i'm getting some great shots of you camping" - nate
 "lol, brb" -me

amazing veggie 'ritos made by my friend leeza  this is what camping is all about. going for walks, eating really great food & just hanging out with your pals.

why does all food taste so much better while camping?

one last one of the beach for you.  i kinda want this picture on my wall...
i call this one, "a poor man's massimo vitali"
