my suitcase was
happy to carry home
many sweet treats from
this adorable little shop in San Francisco
I have a very patient and kind husband who navigated the streets of San Francisco to find me all
of  the sweet little shops I had on my list
~miette~  being one of my favourites

pretty little smile maker packages
 from miette

Oh, I looove the colors: the outside of the shop, the flowers, the candy... Everything is so feminine and delicate. If I ever go back to SF, I'll have to stop by this place (especially since I have a pink-obsessed little one). Thank you for sharing! Xoxo

Hi Koralee,

The colours are really beautiful.
Glad that you had a happy time.

Hope that you are enjoying the week

Jacqueline said...

Dearest sweet Koralee, this bag of sweets is gorgeous and i love the colors. :) I bet it taste really good too. And yes your hubby is just soooo sweet! Love to you!

ps: Thanks so much for the information on your book! Very excited and looking for it! :)


Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
I'm smiling at ALL the sweetness here ~ The Miette store front is just darling! The candy confections look very, very tempting. It's a good thing that pretty little bag of {orange flavor?} candies is on my computer screen and that I can't reach for it!
I'm glad you had a great time in San Fransisco. My father went there back in his traveling days. He just loved the west coast ~

We're doggy sitting this week. Timber is at our house while Rachael and Juan visit Jason. Juan is in Dallas for work and Rachael took the opportunity to make it a nice family visit as they will swing by Austin too.

Our mid-quarter progress reports are due next week... I can't believe we're in the home stretch!

So glad your trip was wonderful and that you and your husband had the best time!
Wishing you bright and sunny days ahead, Koralee! God bless you always, dear ♥
~ Maria
