Tuesday October 1, 2013_September books I read & vids we watched. Lauren had a couple Sedaris books I had not yet read so, I did, enjoying them both as much as she did. She also asked me to read the Cameron book, a Young Reader book, and I enjoyed it also very much. Neuromancer, considered one of best hardcore science fiction books, was a difficult read, but I persevered and, as with so many things, it was well worth the effort.
The 2 Great Courses vids, Theories of Human Development and How Conversation Works, Lauren and I enjoyed them and will undoubtedly watch them again.

Friday October 4, 2013_Santa Cruz antique store_Cindy and I went to get the kids to bring them home for the weekend and, on the way out of Santa Cruz, we stopped off at a couple of antique stores, this one specializing in Asian items, from huge furniture pieces to tiny netsuke.

Monday October 28, 2013_Antiquing again_This time Cindy's looking for a lamp so, we hit antique row here in San Jose, a small section of West San Carlos. One of the things I love most about antique stores is the odd juxtapositioning of items, especially during the holidays. We were almost done when I thought to take a few photographs.

I still have my pilgrim candles just like the ones in one of your photos. i always forget to take them out or don't decorate for Thanksgiving.

M Lyn

If they have more than one buy one for me and I'll send payment or do it before you buy or tell me where I can get it. Please.

Did they have the little singers and a street lamp. the head on mine is broken and I have no idea how to repair. I love my 40 year old candles, still. I have Christmas and Thanksgiving and use them every year. Never burned them.

there's three pilgrims in the photo, one male and two females. Would you want all three?I don't know about a singer or street lamp. Are they for Christmas. I can certainly look. I'm supposed to go back to that store within a week or two so, I'd be happy to get one or three of the pilgrims for you and see if I can find the others. In fact, I can photos because this particular vender has a ton of candles.. We can deal with cost and how to get them to you once I actually have them.

I'm interested in the Christmas candles. I have the pilgrims and forget to use them. It's the Christmas candles and I'd love it if you can take pictures. I'll send pics of what I have already.

M Lyn

Sure I can take pictures, we go back sometime this week or early next. I'll email the photos as soon as I have them :)

Oh, and prices. CAn you believe 15 cents?

Thanks so much and looking forward to your trip there. Wish I could go to the place with you sometime. Sounds great.

M Lyn

wish you could too :) I'll let you know once we've gone.

Happy Halloween! :)

Man, I'd love to go browsing in that antique shop.

Thank you!!

And you know, that was just one section, there were several other rooms. I actually started to get a headache from all the looking :)

Antique stores, one of my most favourite places. :)

Your walkway is pretty.

Great pics once again.

*agrees*

Thank you!! I love changing it up somewhat every year :)

:D
