Eggs and Eye Candy

We are finally back and have finished unloading the multitudes of baggage from our trip to the White Mountains.
(Toddlers and Babies require more baggage than Celine Dion!)

I think we stopped at every candy and fudge shop within a 50 mile radius of the town we stayed in, thrifted to our hearts content, and lazed on the porch of our rental cabin till our brains turned to mush.
There was plenty of help with the babies, so I return feeling rested and relaxed!
Just a few photo highlights of the trip.
The giant egg man
(this one goes out to Lance over at Crescent Hill)
A mile-high meringue from America's Pie Company
Four pies in all, but two were consumed faster than I could photograph them
this one is rhubarb! - No lard -all butter, real scratch pie fillings.
Now, I can make a mean pie - and I do make pies for my husband quite often, but
Diane Lara, owner and chef at America's Pie Company has
the touch of an angel!
Her pies are so light and fluffy, so flaky and delicious
- they could just float right up to heaven
( if they weren't always eaten first).
As I mentioned, plenty of thrifting and boutique shopping too.
The Embellishment Boutique combines shabby antiques, sparkly jewelry, and scrapbook supplies in a wonderful way.
This store is PACKED with eye candy - I had to walk through it twice, just to take it in.
Vintage findings, linens, jems and an out standing scrapbook supply selection.
If ANYONE is visiting Lakeside- you have to stop by - you will love it!
