My friend Dinky and I started out yesterday having a delicious breakfast at Cafe Lure. There are so many great items on the breakfast menu but I still haven't broken away from my usual eggs benedict!
We then headed North to La Conner. When we arrived we noticed immediately that the tulips were not totally in bloom. Infact, many of the fields are still awaiting the amazing burst of color.
I'm sure it's due to the extremely long cold winter we had here in the Northwest.
Usually at this time of year the daffodils have bloomed....but not this time. They were still in their glory and many fields had yet to bloom.
We then ventured into town and stopped at the La Conner Pub for a cold one and I had 2 of the best oyster shooters!
The streets were packed with Harley Davidson riders out enjoying a great day in the sunshine.
We also stopped in to the cutest dress shop called Cotton's. They had the best selection of purses and jewelry.
La Conner is definitely a great day get-a-way and they also have several hotels and B&B's should you decide to kick back and stay for a night or two!
We are Sue and Melanie and the owners of Feathered Nest (914 S. 3rd Street) in Renton, Washington. Feathered Nest is an eclectic mix of vintage and new items. We became friends several years ago when Melanie was partners with another person at another shop here in town. I was working part time in yet another shop and Melanie and her partner asked if I would be willing to work for them while they were on vacation. I agreed and started working in their shop more regularly. As time went on I was asked to become a partner in their shop. We all worked for over 5 years and finally Melanie and I decided we would like to branch off and open our own business. With alot of planning and sleepness nights we finally opened in November of 2006. If you are in town, stop by and say hello or visit our website at http://www.featherednestinteriors.com We look forward to hearing from you!
