Looks like you had a wonderful time! Love all the old hats!


Miss Sugarwings sure looks excited , what a cutie:)
will you be offering hat whisperer lessons anytime soon? i need them desperately...looks like you found a lot of beauties on your trip!!!


when you told me you went to Gettysburg..I had to wonder...did you notice you went RIGHT BY LUCKETTS! Guess you did! I love that place...I'm feeling the need to head over there and the pink polka dotted barn very soon! Love the pictures...and yes, you are grandfathered in on the photo shoot!

It's always nice to get away for a bit but even nicer to come home... makes you appreciate what you have at home.
Great photos Karla.

I'll try to keep this short, but what wonderful things to comment on! The English tea shop across the street from my house closed 3 years ago and I miss it so. Wish I could join you for a blog party tea. Sometimes folks taking photos in shops do not have good intentions -- not you of course!
Welcome Home. I hope you & Sugarwings have fun with your pink hot chocolate!

Looks like you had a great trip and Sugarwings seems happy to have you back! I love the photos, especially the polka dot boots with tulips.

I totally agree that it just doesn't feel right to buy just one, when they have more. Did you see that clip with Jo Packham on Sandra Evertson's blog? Jo said she has so much stuff in her studio because you need about a 1000 charms to make a bracelet with 10. She is right. I like to share, so when I see something that is a bargain, I'll take one for me, one for my niece, one as a present for a yet unknown person. And sometimes just 20!
I love your photos, it looks like Sugarwings is happy to see you too! And of course I love the photos of the shops too, especially the pink one, have a nice week.


Beautiful photos, I love the hats! I hope you are having a good start to your week.


That cloche ...I love that cloche !!!!! what a romantic world you live in !! everything looks lovely ....

I missed one of those lovely eggs from Andrea. So bummed. You look so pretty sipping your tea. Can't wait to play in a few weeks. . .

I am just amazed at all the hats you find!!! See you at Miss Frenchies.


Oh such fabulous eye candy you always give us. And oh my the buckets ... gorgeous!


What a boatload of flowers on those hats! To die for -- as is the pink sap bucket. What fun you are having!


I just caught up on your past several posts..now I am starved and somehow what I currently have in the house just doesn't sound good anymore, drat!! I love the look of your fancy dessert/coffee. How fun was that!! I took my first cruise with my best friend a couple of years ago. One of the best parts was the FOOD! It was like a 3 day tea party with servers who were all young, good looking guys from exotic places who liked to flirt shamlessly with all the gals. Yea for Girls Cruises!! I bet Sugarwings was tickled to get her Grammy back. So glad you had a nice getaway!


What a great trip you had and little Sugarwings with all her neat 'stuff'. What great memories!!!!


I too was catching up on posts. Lovely pictures. If I had been keeping up with everything I would have known you were going to be in my neck of the woods. Glad you enjoyed your visit. Loved the fancy food pictures. The sweet treats look delicious!


oH MY GOSH! So many pretty things! You are always so inspiring!I would love to visit Kansas someday and so many other places !


that floral egg is over the top beautiful!
That's odd the shop didn't allow pictures, I'm glad you got the chance to snap a few before seeing the sign, it looks amazing!

Amy of Bunny Rose Cottage

Oh my gosh Karla!!! You have all the fun! Everything is gorgeous as always! And i agree wit the under glass thing, lol! I have so much under glass or in apothecary jars. I love that look!



Karla, thanks for the big ole shoutout! That pink polka-dotted place was my first stab at a booth in an antique store! It's called On a Whim. I'll never tell that you sneakily took pix.

I've GOT to get my froofy butt over to KS sometime! XOX

Holler when you come to DC next time. And plan it on the 3rd weekend of the month, because I've got a killer place to take you to...


here is the website for On a Whim, I just was by there (didn't go in, returning home from Florida)


Donna On A Whim

The name of the shop in Lucketts with the pink polk-a-dots is ON A WHIM at 14920 James Monroe HWY.RT 15 . Open 7 days a week.
