In my last AAA post I sent out a call to my friend Jean to "let's set a date to go antiquing." That date was this past Friday, and we had a fun time traveling to Lexington and shopping at Duke's Antiques and The Antique Mall.Below you can see a few of the items that caught my eye, but only one of them came home with me. Can you guess which one? I'll show you in a later post. Granny is always on the lookout for antique potato mashers, and she found four of them to use in her baskets. I was going to take a picture of all of them lined up, but she's already made two potato masher baskets since Friday! I'll post on those finished baskets soon.
Antiquing almost always works up an appetite, so we found a neat little sandwich shop called Blue Sky Bakery.
The next photo is dim but gives you an idea of the sweets behind the counter--harvest cookies, brownies, lemon squares, and carrot cake. Granny had to have a piece of the carrot cake...it was delicious and a very generous slice for all four of us to taste.
