Weekend Snaps No. 2

This weekend was a weekend that could be defined by one word: LAZY.  Here are few highlights though:

I FINALLY got to bring home my new coffee table. I had been bothering Cody to make it for weeks after we had brought the piece of glass for the top home from Builders Resource a few weeks ago. Then finally, after a bit of begging he got all the metal and welded it all together. After a few coats of paint, it was looking completely different. I am so happy and thankful that I’ve got someone to make me amazing things! I think it’s the shining piece in our living room. Our apartment now is home to a couple of pieces that Cody has made: 1, & 2. I am hoping with some more coaxing I can get something that is the likes of any of these in the next month or two. I think I’ll have to keep my fingers AND toes crossed to get this to happen. I would love to do a DIY post on how he made this table but I’m afraid welding is WAY over my head.DSCF2197

I also got a bunch of mending done on some clothes that weren’t fitting me quite right. I brought in a few pairs of jeans and also brought in a jacket that was a little too big on me. I’ve really focused on re-purposing my current wardrobe rather than buying new pieces, with the cooler weather coming soon I am excited to where my *newly* edited jacket.DSCF2204This picture *technically* wasn’t from the weekend but we stopped at this cafe in South Park by our work to get a little breakfast on Friday morning, this is one of the advantages of working together.

Things to Do in San Francisco: Stuff Vintage and a Dog Park

Dog Park San Francisco

When you are a dog owner in a big city finding places to take your dog is like a treasure hunt. When I find a dog park that is gated I squeal with joy on the inside. I love that I can take Duke of his leash and let him run around. If you are sensing that I am one of “Those” dog owners, you are RIGHT. I am totally one of those dog owners that treats their dog like my child. I know its a little crazy and I’m sorry, I just love to watch him have a great time and be so dang happy. I’ll get back on track though, There is a dog park across the street from this amazing warehouse of vintage/thrift/flea market like shop called, “Stuff” And let me tell you, there is a lot of STUFF in Stuff. <– see what I did there?

So we ran around the Dog Park for a few minutes(it is also right next to the skate park) and then walked across the street to peruse inside Stuff.

I will warn you that much of it is super over priced and expensive, mainly the furniture. Each stall is owned/rented by a different person selling their wares(I really wanted to say stuff again, but like, common, I had to come up with a different word), and so the prices are based on what each person thinks their items are worth. With that being said, I did find a few stalls that were CRAZY expensive and a few that were reasonable.  It is still worth a look, and they’ve got a parking lot if you would like to park your car and load it up with…..wait for it….STUFF. 🙂

Oh and did I mention, Dogs are Welcome! I asked Cody to make his, “OK are we done yet?” face… It looks really authentic… almost so authentic that I think he really was thinking, “Common Pam… LETS GO”DSCF1914

 

Sorry there aren’t more pictures… I think I got a little overwhelmed.

Building a new work table

wooden table hand madeI’m really excited because I just got a new work table. My boyfriend has been working on making furniture lately and I am lucky enough to get on his list with this request. It’s a high table top and I got a nice cushioned high bar chair to sit at and work on all my crafty things. I’m sitting at it as I type this post 🙂11.23table2 11.23I’ve put in a request for a spice rack, hopefully that will be made soon!
