We were greeted by this vintage police car...no arrest made
(on this outing)!Style Magazine Fall/Winter 2011!
Our first stop was The Laurel Leaf Gallery where we "ooohed & aaaahed" over all the handcrafted jewelry & pottery and local art.
This was the Cranky Queen's fabulous purchase...a piece of original art by Dorothy Spencer. Titled "Delta"...It was a 'must have purchase' because I'm originally from the Delta of Louisiana & was raised in Cotton Country. Don't you love how it is painted on the sheet music?
Our 2nd royal visit was to an incredible "fairytale of a store" Serenite Maison...ooh la la...talking about take your breath away & so great, you want to "slap your Mamma"...Sorry Mamma, but this store's merchandise and displays were out of this world & the Proprietress, Alexandra Cirimelli,was so sweet and kind to allow me to take a few snapshots!
The antique urns were marvelous perched on tables spilling over with the most lush of greenery & moss!
Melanie was ecstatic to purchase a wonderful loving cup to join her collection. She also found the most dainty hand made paper flowers.
We ended our visit eating at a funky little cafe featuring natural foods at its best. I mean really good food, not that "no taste" stuff! Joe Natural's Farm Store Cafe . Mel & I are both Registered Dietitians, so we were very impressed with their food!
We then pulled on our "daisy dukes" & jumped in the General Lee for a spin around town! Just kidding! But...If you are around Leiper's Fork, TN & you want to enjoy some home town hospitality...I am sure they will "leave the lights on for ya!"
STAY CALM & DRIVE THOSE BACK ROADS!
