My beautiful and brilliant niece, Emily, is a student at Southwestern University in Georgetown. Emily is a huge dog lover and always finds a new friend when we are out and about.
The Poppy is the official flower of Georgetown, TX. Isn't this a great graphic on the side of the antique shop?
Sweet pumpkins and ghostly gourds are a fun decoration at the front door!
I loved this clever silk poppy and black feather centerpiece. It's sure to look "fresh" the whole season.
Hollandaze Gourmets is a shop we always drop by. This store has the most interesting gadgets, coffee/tea, pottery, food items, etc. The lovely Laurie Holland is the shop owners and is a friendly, smiling face there to greet at the door and point out the latest fun products.
This is a great shop for gifts for friends and well as gifts for yourself. Check it out here.......http://www.hollandazegourmet.com/
And this is Jerry Pizzitola....chef to the stars, personal chef and party guy. http://kitchenduty.net/ He has the coolest business.....He will shop, cook, serve with flair and clean up for a party in your own home. Everything I've had that he's made is delicious....and it's not a bad deal that he's charming, witty and handsome, right?
He MAKES mozzarella cheese....YES....MAKES it! In Hollandaze there is a full kitchen on site and Jerry, and great chefs, hold cooking classes there. This particular day was a Hawaiian Theme.
Can you guess what's under the tarp!??!!? It's a roasting pig....Hawaiian Style! See the coconut on top and the huge knife stuck in the ground (left)? We didn't stay long enough for the luau because we had more shopping to do, but I can guarantee, it was delicious.
And finally....Laurie Holland (left) and my sweet, fun cousin, Marsha (right)! Thanks for a great weekend and hope to see you soon!
Check back in a few days....I'll be celebrating my ONE YEAR Blog-a-versary with a give away with some goodies from Laurie store and a some other holiday surprises!!
