This is the part where you can point your finger at your monitor and laugh at me. At some point the smart phone outsmarted me and I started taking videos instead of pictures. No, I didn't tip over, I just turned the camera. 8+)
When we finished at the art museum they very graciously offered to take me to The Button Emporium & Ribbonry, another destination on my bucket list. Oh my. I could spend half a day in there. The buttons were all sold as singles and I prefer the "poke sacks" but they had an amazing assortment of trims and ribbons. I speed-shopped since I knew the kids were indulging me but I did manage to gather up this pretty little assortment of trims for my inspiration kits. The proprietors are delightful!Tasty N Alder. We actually stopped there, put our name on the waiting list and then went to the Button Emporium. It was worth the wait with delish Bloody Marys and a very unique menu. I was trying to take a picture of my Bloody Mary and ended up with the video above. They serve family style and bring out the dishes as they are prepared so we ordered several things and shared. The blueberry french toast is A-MAZING and that is coming from someone who isn't very fond of fruit!
What a treat of a day! Thank you Andy and Alissa!
