Two days this week, I took a journey to San Francisco. I stayed at The Hilton, centrally located and within walking distance to good food, shopping and fabric.
The first day of my exploration began with a trip down the Macy’s escalator to the basement for lunch. Boudin Bakery has the best sour dough bread bowl with clam chowder. Even though I was excited about my trip, I began to reminisce about my daughter and our lunches together at Boudin’s. I dusted the bread crumbs from my lap, wiped the tears from my eyes and headed to Britex http://www.britexfabrics.com/.
Four floors of bliss…fabric, buttons, and notions. Everyone who reads my blog knows I love Missoni. Guess what I found at Britex? I purchased 1-1/2 yards of Missoni knit fabric for a skirt. I’ll probably end up admiring the knit like a painting and never touch it with a pair of scissors. On the next floor, I found some interesting trim and buttons.
With all the shopping and walking up and down the streets of SF, I stopped in for dinner at Cafe Mason http://cafemason.net/. The chicken picatta was delicious and the service was fantastic.
The next day, I shopped at Macy’s and on my way back to the hotel, I walked to China Town. I wanted to capture the cultural architecture decorated with beautiful red lanterns.
