I know, I know.......
Why haven't I posted these photos of North Beach before?
Maybe because I have three times this many of them.
It was so hard to go through and make a coherent narrative.
It's such a rich and lively place of contrasts - East and West
old and new
chic and charming
humble and haute.
Where to begin, what to say?
Except that I love it all.
And I worry that this part of San Francisco is endangered......
by Silicon Success. It's progress, they say. "It happens."
Has San Francisco been made a UNESCO world heritage site yet? It should be, don't you think?

A book that I found on a recent trip to London........
is full of treasures.
If I could, I'd move into one of these houses in a heartbeat.
Sadly, they are extremely rare these days.
What do I like most? The lanterns? The carvings? The colors?
The sweet garden decor?
The perfect balance of light and heaviness?
I did say colors, didn't I?
The authors of this book won an award in 2005
for their previous book, Chinese Houses: The Architectural Heritage of a Nation
I'm sure that book is just as gorgeous.
Find more about them both, click here.

It's totally O.K. with me
if you'd like to think
that this is what my food life looks like.
I'd like to think so too!
Did you eat anything good this past weekend?
Most of these pictures came from the Marion House blog. Hungry at all?
