Submitted by LindaSo with all this shopping we had to keep in mind that we were returning on an airplane, so we had to limit the size of our purchases. At this antique mall in Charleston, I ended up buying some buttons and lace. Liz found some 'hard to find' items from her wishlist, but in one case the price was too high, and in the other, the shipping would have been exorbitant.
Tobi Fairley's blog, where she posts a beautiful patriotic tablescape (my cellphone pics don't show the cool embossed lettering). On the back side the design is a statue of liberty. I have never seen anything like this in my California antiquing, so I was excited to find it.
Cute, right? However, I haven't started using a hankie. I'm concerned that my '40 something-teacher' vibe may not be enhanced by a hankie. Rather than looking hip and cool, I wonder that when I whip out my hankie I may look older than I am. Thoughts?
Our next food adventure was at 'The Early Bird Diner', again in Charleston and again endorsed by our friend Guy Fieri.
Susan Branch Recipe that Michelle and I both make in the summertime. Very cool and refreshing. The Early Bird added avocado,which was a nice touch!
