Rain Rain Go Away

This morning I woke up to dismal grey skies and the familiar sound of heavy raindrops splattering on the window above my bed. I always find less than ideal weather as the perfect excuse to hide in the house, devour a plethora of soft-bake cookies, and make jewelry (today's project involved two rectangular pale pink agate stones and some gold wire). Feeling a little depressed from the weather I decided to treat myself to an afternoon of thrift store shopping followed by a trip to Than Brother's Restaurant, a delicious little Pho joint in Ballard. Not only are the steamy bowls of noodles drool worthy, but the service is lightening quick, dessert (creme puff) is brought out BEFORE the meal, and the prices are utterly unbeatable.

Thrift Store Treasures: Blood Orange Glass Bowl, Rings, Vintage Mirrored Tray.

Noodles and broth only for me, I love to stuff my stomach with carbs and sugar!

Little bits of heaven. Golden-baked Banh Choux a la Creme with swirled tops.
