Hello! I haven’t forgotten about the blog… just got sucked into grad school. When I signed up for school I knew it would be hard but I never thought it would be so time-consuming. Spending 8 hours a day on campus and then doing homework after doesn’t leave much time for crafting or exploring. The good news is that Spring quarter looks lighter!
I thought I would show some pictures from a fancy night out J and I had a few weeks ago. We crossed the train tracks to one of the most popular restaurants here in Santa Barbara, The Lark. While it may be known for its creative and local menu, I was most impressed with the building design and re-use of old materials. A giant staghorn fern! And just across the parking lot, The Lark’s neighbor, Lucky Penny. That copper wall is covered in pennies! Even the waiters’ stand was cute with old colorful benches and milk bottles for water. The whole outside patio is surrounded by this window vertical garden installation.
