Last Saturday, the boy-ohs and I took a little excursion right in our own little downtown.
First stop was Legacy Chocolates - a puveyer of fine artisanal chocolate - truffles, cocoa, cake, and the drool-worthy Love Potion No. 9, billed as "the elixer for chocolate lovers" which indeed it is (I bought 14 oz. and am rationing it out carefully - I serve it warm on good vanilla ice cream)! Legacy also serves the finest in homemade soups and sandwiches - the reuben I ordered was nothing short of heavenly - only God Himself could do better! No kidding!
Gripping the Love Potion!
Ha! He looks grumpy - but actually this was his attempt at a "silly face"!
2 thumbs up - and 2 smiles
(3, if you count the one on the other side of the camara) for Legacy!
My beverage favorita - in a Legacy mug! Mmm - mmm.
After Legacy, we wandered down the street to Town & Country Antiques, a 2-story antique & vintage emporium. As we walked, I snapped a few shots of the buildings downtown. Some beautiful old architecture and materials.
The historic Mabel Tainter theater - the whole fam enjoys taking in local productions here.
Town and Country Antiques
The boys enjoyed pouring over the treasures within every bit as much as I!
I LOVE that the antique store promotes antiqueing as another form of recycling!
Which it IS! I'm shopping AND helping Mother Earth! hehehe.
J'adore this! *sigh*
These are the 2 goodies that I brought home with me.
Pewter alphabet mug (TOO cute - will use as pen holder)
and OLD cow bell - will paint monogram on this & hang outside.
It was sprinking outside. Beyond the trees is the lake.
XL found himself a treasure at the antique store, a Howdy Doody gun!
