At 2:14 p.m. on Friday this little text exchange took place:
Me: "So would you like to take me to Door County this weekend?"
CG: "Sure"...simple as that. I booked a great place to stay, (a water view was a must),
and we headed off early on Saturday for a marvelous long weekend. Spontaneity has been one of the gifts of CG's semi-retirement. Footloose and fancy free, no advance planning required. Love it.
Door County is known for the best cherry pies, made from local cherries.
The orchards had just burst into bloom . The peninsula is mostly rural, with quaint artsy towns lining the Lake Michigan and Green Bay shorelines.
We spent some time cruising the back roads, enjoying the scenery. We even found one property that we thought we just might be able to afford...if only we had fixer-upper skills!
We always like to make a stop at the Door County Bakery
Where deciding what to buy is the hard part
Right next door is..................wait for it....
Yep, Viva la Cottage, where on July 9th, Kathy and I will be selling at one of the best small flea markets in these parts,
is loaded with charming vintage finds mixed with carefully selected new products. It all works beautifully together.
If you're headed up to Door County make this is a "must-see" shop to put on your agenda.
Now it's time for you to grab the rope, hold on and let's all head over to Faded Charm for White Wednesday. Come on now...no dilly-dallying - inspiration awaits!
