Our hotel was downtown so we were able to stroll all over....

Such WONDERFUL stores to shop but...it was SUNDAY and nothing open...

Well, one place was open....my white plastic sack I am holding...

WALLGREEN !! bummer...I wanted a sack full of "things" from one of these other fine stores!!


"Bye bye, Seattle and the Space Needle..

Plexiglass was so blue it made the WATER look blue...

This round of photos pretty much finishes the
ALASKAN CRUISE pictures....maybe a stray every now and then....

Been thinkin' a lot about you, BJ, wondering how your Alaska trip went.

I've missed your smiling face and funny blog antics. These antique shows are keeping me hopping these days. But, this last one has given the Yankee and me weeks to explore his old stomping grounds in New England together.

Hope you have a blessed week!

Hugs,
Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage

Miss BJ,
I am still trying to figure out how you eat all this sweet stuff and stay so svelte!!! Those cinnamon knots look yummy!!! When I get back from Memphis from seeing The King for Elvis week. I am going to track some of those down!

The rolls look wonderful! Love the photos of your trip! I would love to take a cruise of Alaska! I've heard it's a great way to see the sites! I got to spend some time in Alaska a few years ago...and I would love to go back! ♥

Oops, let me try this again...BJ~you were in my neck of the woods before setting sail. Well, actually my son and Dil live in Seattle, we're just a few hours away from there. Looks like a fun time!!

I love cooking with Rhodes! It makes an excellent pizza crust and is so convenient. Yummy knots! I'll tale one with a cuppa.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

I declare BJ those look so yummy I think I could gain weight just looking at them.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Seattle is one of those cities I've always wanted to visit, but it is a long way from Illinois for this non-flying girl. One of these days maybe a long road trip.

The rolls look great...love that idea!
