Bosque del Cabo, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

Truly a Paradise on earth, and we have been fortunate to visit for the second time. This time we went to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. It was the
perfect choice, we were so very well taken care of.

We spent the days walking, seeing the incredible wildlife, lounging by the pool, napping in the hammock…

and ate fabulous meals, 3 times a day. The fresh fruit was exotic,

the choices many, the bar close by and welcoming…

How lucky we are!

I finally got into my studio, after the usual post-trip activities, and managed to
“save” a vest I had almost made into a wadder…

The pattern is from Cutting Line Designs, the vest from “Light and Shadow’ and 
the fabric is a beautiful striped dupioni I bought from Emma One Sock at least
four years ago. The stripe is red, black and silver, and goes with so many of my
wardrobe items, I was desperate to “make it work”…and I did!

I am in the (pleasant) throes of planning a wardrobe for my trip to Paris in the fall…I am skewing the color scheme a little…instead of the true red I have been wearing, I have chosen some fabrics and RTW items in a claret tone, which has a little more blue/brown in it. 

I found this lovely alpaca poncho and fell in love with it…

It is perfect for travel, light and airy! The hat is by Kangol, I have
the same model in black, and it is crushable, so good for travel. (It’s called
“The Diva”!)

I also found a pair of boots (imagine that!) that go with the claret tones…

Not only is the color right, they’re highly comfortable and will be good for travel.

Based on Sham’s recommendations, I enrolled in Marcy and Katherine Tilton’s 
newest Craftsy class, called “The Artful Teeshirt”.  In their inimitable way, they have made another winner. Their instructions are so clearly spoken, and as always, I learn something new every time I watch it. Highly recommended!

I will pay a visit today to Patti’s Visible Monday… come on over and see the highly visible women! Thanks, Patti….
