It's finally arrived.....and appropriately on the first day of autumn. Yes, the orange vinyl banquette has landed! In the warm and muggy darkness of the final evening of summer it covertly appeared, like a beacon in the night. (Oxymoron?) Awaiting a good scrub and a place of honor inside the shop, he sits patiently. Oh and she could be waiting a while........there is so much inside to re-arrange, time to get out the ladder and tape measure! My mind is clicking (sometimes smoking) with all of the ideas and designs I would like to actualize. BZZZZZZZZZ goes my brain. But it's a good thing.
In the vestibule the slate has been wiped clean, and Baking at Grandma's House is being "cooked up". Evoking age old memories of Sundays at the best place to eat in town! MMM. Delicious pies, stews, and my Grama's specialty, Chicken Cacciatiore. I am licking my lips as I write, remembering the tangy sauce and the succulent chicken as it fell off of the bone and melted in my mouth. Ok. Back to reality. Beginning with a Hoosier and a chalkboard this vignette will truly take you back. Baking pans, soup pots, apple pie making paraphenalia. (Have I piqued your interest yet?) Grama says" I'll save you a seat at the on the Orange Vinyl so don't be late for dinner!"
