Friday Fun Stuff

I am going to try and post some tidbits every Friday that are just fun.  It might be a bargain that I have found somewhere, maybe a treasure from my trove, a post from another blogger that I find particularly interesting or all of the above! 
If you have a banana or gap card check out their website!  Use code BRJULY They have 40% off on all full priced items and 50% off sale!  How can that be bad? I hit the store yesterday and after I got home  I stocked up on t-shirts ( I think Gap’s favorite tees are the best).  They are not too skimpy and hold up to multiple washings.

And I couldn’t resist this linen shirt in the prettiest shade of pink

I think this skirt can be just as comfy as a pair of sweatpants, but a tad classier...what do you think?

If you love my friend Pat’s paintings but can’t rationalize spending the money, you are in for a huge treat!  She has had such a big response from you readers that she is going to do a painting a day for $100.  You can go here and see what she posts everyday.  Here are a couple of my favorites so far
Valley of the World, DAILY PAINTING #3 by Patricia Huber Oil ~ 6 x 6
Corral de Tierra Ranch, DAILY PAINTING #6 by Patricia Huber Oil ~ 8 x 10
If you love to cook you might want to check out Celia Becker’s blog, After Orange County  This week she has a recipe for a really simple appetizer that you can make with ingredients you have on hand,her Bruschetta, Lentil & Feta Cheese Dip.  
That’s it for today.  I will be back next week with an update on the Tahoe project!  Have a great weekend!
