Last Friday friends, Jennifer, Judith Marilyn and myself decided to take a little visit to a lovely little village about an hour away called Creemore. It is a touristy type of town with lots of galleries, quaint shops and lovely places to eat. Unfortunately, the day was calling for a good downpour. We got to visit a few of the stores and oogle and google over things. We were told by a shopkeeper that a good place for lunch was the Affairs Bakery. I was hooked when I saw that they had butter tarts on the menu. Lunch was lovely. I had a delicious stew and nice warming green tea. Desert was a pumpkin butter tart and I enjoyed every bite. After lunch Judith and Marilyn headed home but Jennifer and I wanted to take some pictures in the park. Just as we hauled the cameras out of the bags down came the rain in buckets. Note the wavery pic on the top right. I managed between rain bursts to take a couple of the flowers in the park. On the way back home Jen and I passed a country store in the middle of nowhere. I made a quick stop and backed up to the front door. It was full of all kinds of jewelry and scarfs and crafts. The owner was quite bubbly and friendly. In the back room we spotted these delicious confections of hats. We tried them all on. Well this one on the old girl just took my fancy and I took it home. Jennifer bought one also in a pale pink. Maybe she will share it on her blog A Garden of Threads.
Join us for Mosaic Monday at Mary’s. Have a great last week of September. Valerie
