My Friends by Emily

These adorable little guys are my friends who keep me company while my mom and brother are away during the day. They don't even mind if when I drink out of their tank. They are Clouseau, who is almost white, like Steve Martin's hair in the new Pink Panther movies; Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn - fantail goldfish master Jedi.

Very Paris Scarf

The photo doesn’t do the look justice, but this is one of my new favorite scarves. Because the price was right, I also bought the black and white version, but I preferred the red with my black jacket and white t-shirt. The black and white version looks fabulous with jeans and a white t-shirt.

They were purchased at the fabulous Porch shop in Buffalo, MN. The Porch on the upper level is an occasional sale shop, open five days each month: the first Wednesday-Sunday), and offers handcrafted jewelry, gift items, all unique and affordable. The Atelier (street level shop: open every week, Thursday-Sunday) offers refurbished furnishings, at fabulous prices and home d├ęcor.
