Tuesday, the Lunch Bunch traveled north for a "Road Trip" which landed us at a great restaurant for lunch and then shopping in a favorite Kansas City area, Crestwood.
Alas, I found a treasure . . .
|It goes up and around and around!|
A "Wobbler" -- from Pear Tree Antiques. A favorite shop whose inventory is European -- both big and small. In the shop is a sink that I covet . . . I drool every time I visit and I know it would be perfect in Linderhof's garden! But alas, it is a permanent fixture and is not for sale!
The "Wobbler" - it's a topiary form but only the English would have a clever name for it! I adore topiaries and have had my globe ivy topiary since the first Valentine's Lunch I did several years ago. I've had many myrtle topiaries -- all for short periods of time. Very short periods of time! I bought another one in April and it's growing! I think I found the secret!
The "Wobbler" . . .
|Transforming a plain "topiary" into an English "wobbler"|
was bought for this pot of ivy. I had an iron form for it to grow up and around but thought, perhaps that this new topiary would be more fun! So I switched out the topiary form for the "wobbler".
|We'll keep you advised of it's progress as it grows up and around!|
It was brilliant of me, I think . . . and it looks smashing! As the ivy grows, I shall tuck it in and around the spirals of the wobbler.
And this evening, we headed to Liberty Theatre. A great event theatre here in our little town. For a favorite group was playing . . .
|Set 1 -- The Early Beatles|
In our opinion, the BEST Beatles Tribute Band in the Country!!! They first played here and at the Liberty ten years ago -- for we brought them here for our Daughter's wedding.
And first Michael and now Jim bring them back to our town . . . and they are a favorite. It was a packed house tonight.
|Set 2 - Sergeant Pepper Days|
The band brings back memories -- many memories -- of youth and The Beatles as well as our daughter's wedding 10 years ago. "John" told me that Liverpool had been playing for 23 years . . . and at the time they started there were only 5 Beatle Tribute Bands total in the United States -- now there are 500! He also said that in all probability that tonight there was a Beatle Tribute Band playing in every state in the United States.
It's always nice to see the guys again and they're concert is absolutely the best! We had a grand time even though it was a late night!
We can't wait until they come back!
I'm joining Bernideen for Open House. I'd love to share my "wobbler"!
