February Fun!

February is shaping up to be a pretty great month on the Sacramento Art and Craft scene!

Start things out on first Saturday (yes you did read right!) with Indie Sacramento! Where you will be able to see Rain of Rain's Embellishments=)

For Second Saturday you should head over to the Sacramento Art Complex where my friend Susan of Secret Little Relics will be the featured artist!

Fun times for February!

Where the Fun Is!

So...I have had a wonderful early evening! Not only is Simply Strands expanding its empire, but I was able to get some awesome vintage beads as well!

French Cuff Consignment located in beautiful midtown Sacramento is a wonderful store full of great treasures and unique finds. (and they now have Simply Strands vintage caged marble necklaces!)

So go check them out in person and on the web. They have an extensive web-site and links to
their items on E-bay. You can even book a trip to go to France with the co-owner of the store! C'est magnifique!

They are located at:
2419 J Street
Sacramento, California

You can also visit them on the web at!

This is a picture of one of the marble necklaces that is at French Cuff Consignments!!!

Capitol DAWG!

Where should one go for the best dog in town? Captiol Dawg!

A hot dog should not just be a summertime thing, or a ball park thing, or a bbq should be a 24/7/365 thing!

Thankfully downtown Sacramento has the place to provide just that! They are located at :
226 20th St

They have so many different dogs! My favorite is a vegan dog with ketchup, both kinds of relish, and a slice of swiss cheese to bring it all together...if vegan is not your thang than don't worry because they have a good old meat dog too.

The best time to go is...well..anytime! But Tuesday's between 5:30 and 8:00 pm they have a hot dog happy hour! $2.00 for a regular dog, a beer, or ice cream...all three for $6.00...WOW!
