Oh hello there,
I can't even believe another weekend as arrived already...how time flies, but trust me, I am not complaining:) As I mentioned before Al and I spent some time in Philly this past week with friends and visiting family. This city just never gets old to me. Really, it's just a home away from home. Anyhow, now that spring has sprung and summer is peeking it's head around the corner to say a warm and friendly "hello", one of our favorite places to go is The Franklin Fountain. It's the sweetest little old fashioned ice cream parlor - cash only, a vintage candy counter, homemade ice-cream, fudge and retro appliances... even workers dressed in authentic garb, this place couldn't get any more charming. So there we went....again and again and probably all summer long because it's just that good. I failed to snap a photo of my creamy creation because I hoovered the whole yummy thing before the thought ever crossed my mind:)
Also on the sweetness meter, I was ever so thrilled last week to have come home to the most darlingly wrapped package sent to me from lovely Rachel of Cute-Vintage. Inside was the perfect little summer sundress complete with rainbow striped stitching and a smocked back...oh, and a tote! What's not to love about that? Anyhow, I wore it to tread through the city with this past weekend and I can tell it's one of those pieces that will be perched at the very front of my closet all summer long. I layered it up here because it was slightly chilly and I'm perpetually cold and I was inspired by this apron skirted dress that I recently saw at my local antique shop, but I also look forward to keeping it simple with a big straw hat and pair of sandals. Now pass me a fresh squeezed lemonade:) Thanks Rachel, you are a doll! Her store Cute-Vintage is full of other pretty treasures too, so pop on by if you are on the hunt for something sweet.
That's all for now darlings. Enjoy that Saturday sunshine!
