Had a lovely day yesterday in Mahone Bay and Lunenburg. Rebecca’s Restaurant always puts on a fantastic spread.
I enjoyed every mouthful.
Stopped at Have A Yarn for…yarn of course.
I love this yarn. She’s a talented hand dyer. One color morphs into another. I think this little beauty will become a shawl.
So many adorable places along the way. I found a few antique and vintage items to add to my collections.
There’s a little shop next to Rebecca’s that’s super cool. I have a love of succulents and she has a variety in stock. She found a little air plant and I found a bubble glass vessel and voila!
It was just a fantastic day!
Today was a grand day for gallavanting. Sunny and hot. I slept in and landed at Rebecca’s Restaurant at 1300. My favorite destination for lunch in Mahone Bay. The menu is always refreshing. I had Sweet Potato soup, Shrimp and mushroom Risotto cakes with a side salad and for dessert traditional Nova Scotia Strawberry Shortcake. It was made with the best tea biscuit I’ve had since my grandmother’s for sure. The new location is brillant. On Edgewater Street, it has loads of parking and seating.
Right Next door there is a newly opened shop, called Sprig Apothecary, it literally had at all my favourite things for sale. Succulents, lotions, beautifying products, and pretty little pots. So I added a little succulent to my growing indoor garden and some beauty products to pamper myself. It was fun, like a day at the spa, my style.
Down the way I stopped at Have A Yarn, and found some new color ways. It’s a new company RavensWood Fibre Co. A local company!
Another new shop on Main is a sweet little interior design shop. Here Nor There. I picked up a seagrass basket, and a macrama plant holder. The plant holder I’ve been ages waiting for and it’s perfect.
I dropped in to Birdsall-Worthington Pottery for a gander and found beautiful hand made earrings.
Finally ended up at Peacocks Antiques and found some awesome vintage clothing, stay tuned for those outfits. Including a perfect birthday dress for July.
