Day Trippin'

Happy Wednesday!


Yesterday was such a fun day! Jen and I took a little day trip to Tucson.

There are some really great mountains between Phoenix and Tucson, some really pretty scenery...but since I was driving like a bat out of hell through the desert I figured I better leave both hands on the steering wheel and not try to take any pictures along the way.
Safety first!

Oh, but once we got to our destination (thanks to Andy McDrive the Scotsman GPS) the camera came out!
Our first stop was for some lunch.
We chose the Hotel Congress, it was great!


We ate at The Cup Cafe.


You have to check out the pictures of the floor on their website.
Pennies!

The lighting over the bar was pretty cool too!


After we had our fill it was on to 4th Avenue for a little boutique and thrift shopping!

Lots of funky clothing shops and tattoo places and bars.
Reminded me a lot of Haight Street in SF....a toned down mini version of it...It's Mini-Me.

We followed a lovely row of painted columns.....

hello birdies!


And ended up here!


Great thrift store!
I come home with a few goodies.
More glass jars for my collection.

And ideas for some bracelets and a new kind of canvas for my paintings..fun!

We needed a break from the heat so we hopped back into the car...ahhhh, A/C....and headed off for Broadway (not the one in NY) to see some shops recommended by Vanessa of A Fanciful Twist.

So eclectic, so fun, so much personality! Just like Miss Vanessa herself!

Our first stop was Picante!, such a fun shop.






I came home with a lovely box of matches and some paper garland.




Next door was Yikes!, a great toy store.

Everything from gag gifts to books to candy and cards and yes, toys!

I came home with some fun postcards.


Our next stop was Bohemia.

A great shop that features artists from the area.
Everything from jewelry, to furniture, to clothes, to purses, to paintings....everything!
Great place!

Our last stop was Bon...oh, Bon, how I love thee.

I could seriously spend all day there.
Such a pretty shop.

I blogged about this shop back in May when I made my birthday trip down to Tucson to get my crown.
This time I got to share the experience with Jen, she loved it too.


I came home with some things for a lovely lady back in California who has a birthday coming up in August and a set of Fortune Telling cards for myself!

Fun!
What a great day, we saw so much and had such a great time.
Who wants to come next trip???
xoxo
