The long weekend was soaked in winter rain, but we visited the Seattle Home Show {nothing exciting to report} and the latest exhibit at SAM {more on this tomorrow}, discovered new cafés and lunch spots, and found a few lovely decor items to add to the mix.  Hope your weekend was delightful.Far 4, Oddfellows, Capitol Hill
