pretty porcelain berry baskets

i was out visiting one of my favorite berkley stores - the gardner - and happened across these pretty white porcelain berry boxes ... immediately in love!

oh super clean lined but still with a farmhouse chic appeal - would be so wonderful for so many little things not just your berries in the fridge.. though reusable is good! soap dish, planter, cute hostess gift with fresh muffins inside .... i could go on but you get the idea!!! i found them here for a very reasonable price in two sizes.
oh an i loved these little organic boxshaped salters too!

day tripping - angel island

i took a little outing this weekend - a very short but pleasant ferry ride from pier 41 to angel island. a strange vestige of american military history ranging from the civil war to the late 1960 - i HIGHLY recommend packing a picnic lunch and spending the day!

a little civil war era chapel -
the old hospital - i have a little dream that this would make a perfect B&B - its such a shame that all these old buildings are going unused because they are truly beautiful

i want to live here - look at that view!! hope you enjoyed this little virtual tour of angel island for more info click here

by the way i got to fire that cannon up at the top while out there! haha
