back in the day bakery

savannah georgia, home of "back in the day bakery"
i have been a fan, for quite awhile.
i have their 1st cookbook and they are coming out with their
 second one march 24th, 
"back in the day bakery made with love"
can't wait.  
you can see preview it on amazon.
looks delish!
anywho, rick was so nice to divert the road to st. augustine, florida
via savannah, georgia.
once i knew we were going there i looked up the route to the 
and we found it!
but guess what, it was............

we were there on monday and it was closed!

so i started to take photos from the outside.

aren't they nice and clear!

 that's because rick was so nice and said we
could go the same route home to
stop in when they were open! 
happy day!

 such a cute shop!

 love the order sign.

 delish lunch.

 recognize the folks on the far right?

yup that's cheryl and griffith day.
the creators of this lovely bakery.

we sat at a long table and started talking to the gentleman next
to us.
  he filled us in on the city of savannah. 
rick told him that i was a huge fan of the bakery.
our new friend said he knows cheryl and griff 
and said she would be happy to stop over.
i said that was fine, didn't want to bother them,
but he went over and she came by to say hi and chat. 
so nice of her!
Cheryl called the gentleman, the mayor :)
i think he was a regular.
but then who wouldn't be, i sure would if i lived in town. 

 perfect vintage scale coffee station.

chandelier with vintage pastry molds.


what can you make with 
marshmellows, cupcake wrappers and straws?
a bakery chandelier of course!
the how to is in their new book.

 i hope to try and replicate this 
wall this summer.

perfect saying,
perfect shop, 
perfectly good day.

getting ready

 savannah pictures still to come :) 

but since we got back from vacation we have been
busy with a little home remodeling.
previously we moved the craft room down to kyle's old bedroom
and now the old craft room
will be a tv/spare guest/grandbaby's room.

both our parents had 
a crib set-up for the grandkids 
when they were little which was very handy.

now i am having fun figuring out the color scheme. 
at the moment it's greys, whites, touches of brass/gold and with
color popping from books, toys, prints - whatever
comes along with having a new grandbaby in the home.

no grits at the pig

rick and i took a quick trip to florida
last week.  
destination - st augustine, the oldest city in the US,
founded in 1565.
it wasn't exactly warm while we were there, but much warmer than
what wisconsin experience that week.

below are a few pics from the trip, and to come a few photos
of a side trip we took to savannah, ga.

half the fun of taking trips is eating local and we tried grits at a 
spot in st. augustine, Harry's and they were wonderful.
now rick is determined to make them.
after we got back i went to the local piggly wiggly to purchase grits
but alas they don't stock grits.
will have to try another grocer or it's back to florida we go.

gone camping

it's the middle of winter, so it's no better time
 to think about camping.

 i was wandering a local antique store and came upon
this cute little pink coleman stove.
it was on sale so i snatched it up.
it actually had one can of lp gas in it.
i went back to get the box,
and when i came back the guy actually turned 
the knob (not sure why) and it hissed.
made me nervous, and i told him i really didn't want the gas can.
he took it out.

time to map out some camping fun.
