Yesterday we went to an antiques shop in Frederick where we have never been before. It was a really cool store and I liked it a lot. Lots of things to look at and get ideas. Here's a picture I took inside the store. Other rooms head off of this main one.
I bought these two old spools to use as primitive candle stick holders.
I put blue candles in them and set them on the table.
We went to a couple more antique shops before we got antiqued out. In one of the shops I found a green 10" Fiesta Plate in perfect condition. It was also marked down 25%. Now I have all six original colors of that size plate.
Then we headed over to Westminster and had a great dinner in a nice restaurant. It is the blue building on the corner. Can you spot the old red British call box on the corner?
We both had salads, fillet mignon, (mine with mashed potatoes, his with creamed spinach) and we splurged and got dessert. I had key lime pie and Ken had White Raspberry Cheese cake. Ken's dessert by far was the best one. He shared a little bit of it with me. It was sooo good.!!! :-)
Today I was out and about doing a few errands. If the ice comes tonight I won't be going anywhere tomorrow so figured I go out today. I went to the mall to try to find a dress to wear at the Gala that we will be going to in February given by Ken's work place. I am not a shopper and this is not fun for me. After going in and out of many stores and trying on so many dresses I lost count, I ended up going back to the first store and to the first dress I tried on. The dresses are either too old looking or made for teenagers. I ended up with this blue dress. Though it is a small it still feels a little big, but it has a tie in the back so I think it will be okay. I think I will have another shopping day and if I find another one I like better, I'll get it. This one I'll keep too though. How do you like the dress?
I would like to get some new black shoes to wear with it.
The other day I was playing around with different fonts for my blog and found this one that I've changed to. It has odd name. "Coming Soon" Strange name huh!?
I'd better end this post now and go and get a few things done around the house so I can have some time to read. I also have a few days of catch up to do reading blogs. As you all know it only takes a couple of days to get way behind.
Look for those moments of happiness in your day!
A smile from me to you.
