We decided to take the day away
just for fun
And so we headed
And a little town called
It's a tiny little berg
We were enchanted by the mushroom fairy houses
Made from tree stumps
It's a one block town
And one of the stores is this amazing shop
Quality antiques from all periods
And the owner knew which family had owned many of the pieces for sale!
And as we walked the block, we found
This charming park between two buildings
And if it hadn't been raining, we would have sat and enjoyed the little park
But we did have lunch
At the Picket Fence
The Best!Home Made PieBy The Pie Lady Of Blackwater
Mrs. Mersey is 93
She bakes all the pies!
And that day she had quite an array.
Our lunch --
pie and coffee
My choice --
A real coconut cream
And toasted coconut on top
And I did bring home a remembrance
An amethyst hyacinth vase
And if they're reasonable, I buy them every chance I get
This one was reasonable.
They're not used to hold cut hyacinths
But rather to force the bulbs in the middle of winter
When there is nothing blooming outside!
We had a grand time on our first visit to Blackwater
It's not all that far off of I-70, if you're on your way to Columbia or St. Louis from Kansas City
We'll be back sometime . . . . when we travel that way.
I'm joining The Tablescaper for Oh, The Places I've Been! And this week I've been to Missouri!
