Lunch with the Chicks at Cafe de Coco #3

A few close ups for you. I love that little wire pot holder.

And this antique wire egg basket.

This is beside that little dressing table in the entry that looks very Parisienne, but it says "I love New York"........hmmmmm, kinda strange I think.

But wait! Aaaaah, here's the french one!!

Another dress form above my budget limit! Sigh........

This picture of a shoe reminds me of Gail McCormack's new paintings. Hers are definitely prettier though. And we all KNOW how I feel about birdhouses.

The ceiling was very dramatic in the main area of the shop. They draped lovely fabric over the lights there to soften the effect. Really pretty.

Darling little hand towel with a froufrou kinda dress.

And this bench?!?! Ooooh, how I would love that for my front porch. You do realize the front porch is NOT finished, right? More on that down the line though.

Another dining area. They had 4 or 5 different small private dining areas there and I quite like that. There was a place in Oakland, California, that a friend and I usually dined at called The Pewter House and each dining table was secluded with walls around it. Lunch would usually take us 3 hours because we just sat and talked while we ate.
