holleeanne reunion!

LeeAnne and I had so much fun hanging out in New York Saturday! We started out by having breakfast at our favorite Clinton Street Bakery, then spent the afternoon exploring Brooklyn Heights and finished the night with pizza at Grimaldi's and a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Here are some pictures of our adventure...

shane and the franklin fountain

Charlton and I just got back from a grand tour through the northeast. One of my favorite parts of the trip was a visit to Shane Confectionery and the Franklin Fountain in Old Town, Philadelphia.

Both stores are owned by two brothers who have a love of history and express it in such a unique way through their business. The stores take you back into time with a product that is most delightful. The ice cream I had at Franklin Fountain was the best ice cream I had ever had! At Shane, I tried a sampling of cream filled eggs which were very delicious. The store was beautiful and had many specialty candies to choose from.

I highly recommend a visit to both shops, they sit together on one hundreed block of  Market Street.

My camera died so I did not get any pictures of my own, these are from the facebook page of the two shops.

Last Monday, we had our first Curtsey meeting. It was great fun to spend time with other creative "southern" ladies. Photos by Stacy Richardson and Kelly Cummings.

keep calm and carry on

Charlton loves history, I love design, every now and then the two collide and this is a most beautiful instance...
