We are fitting in as many happy things as we can these last few weeks of summer. My Girl starts Middle School in a few weeks and I will miss her. Making memories is high on my list right now.
One evening was spent at a fair. The bright lights and aroma of delicious (and mostly fried) foods filled the senses.
Lunch at one of our favorite places on earth...Maureen's Kitchen! Absolutely everything here is delish and all the cows, well - too cute.
Once upon a time this wonderful place was a tiny little cottage converted into a restaurant. It was a 1/4 of the size it was now. I miss that...the cozy homey feeling. Everyone that worked there was family and you felt like you were being served breakfast by your favorite aunt.
I can't blame them for expanding, but some of the charm - well, it's missing. BUT, the food is still fabulous!!!
I did not find too much in my treasure hunting this weekend, but what I did find was sweet and I was happy to make it mine.
Amongst these treasure were a lovely vintage sewing box, a rosette afghan, gorgeous crushed velvet ribbon...
...a Kitchen Madonna and a beautiful flower book from 1867.
We are working on converting the spare bedroom upstairs into a storage/workroom for me - so off to work I go. Hopefully this room will keep me more organized!
