Ahhh, I took a whole day to just go have some fun! Oh my goodness it was just what I needed. I found these wonderful little things that just called my name. I started off thinking I was going to accomplish a long list of “to do’s”, but instead ended up meeting a friend. We met for coffee and a treat to start off with. 🙂 A delicious latte and a shared slice of Brown Butter Pie. I had never heard of that and I’m here to say it was absolutely divine! I’m really trying not to make or bake anything that I can’t stay out of right now, but I will be tracking down a recipe for this to make at a later date. ♥
We then headed out to an antique shop and meandered through there for a couple hours. What treasures we found!! Not to mention all the memories brought to mind from seeing so many things from our childhoods, and things our grandmothers actually had and used. That’s where I found the sweet little oil and vinegar bottle set. I also found a couple more little bottles for my window sill collection but they never made it into the picture because they accidentally ended up in my friends box. 🙁 There was so much to look at that it ended up taking way more time that we planned so we parted ways after leaving there. I still needed to do a few of those things on my list.
I did go to a couple other stores before meeting my friend. Trader Joe’s, which I always love to go to, and then I perused around “Home Goods” for awhile. I always find things there that I can’t resist. That’s where I found the darling Demitasse cups and saucers. They needed to come home with me. Just looking at them makes me happy!!! 🙂
Costco, grocery store, gas, and home at last. A long day, but a good one. I highly suggest doing a funday somewhere in your near future. There will always be the “to do’s” and it was nice to spontaneously do something frivolous. Yes, my list will be long for the next time, but what’s new. I always start a new list as soon as I get home anyway. Until next time……
p.s. It really is the little things in life that bring us happiness. ♥♥♥
