We had a wonderful weekend in the snow. Actually to be honest my girls and hubby played in the snow and Mary and I antique shopped, talked blogging and pride and prejudice. It was lovely. I have to share what I bought. First is this amazing photo of hydrangea from Mary. Yes not only is Mary husband an amazing photographer so is Mary. Isn't this picture just dreamy. I love the color and was drawn to it immediately. She has done several photos of tulips, coneflowers and sunflowers. YOU need to share it on your blog Mary !!!!!! xoxoxox
I also fell in love with this little English cottage. I can just picture myself sitting in this garden having tea. I always love picture were I can picture myself there. This is my passion lately, anything with little thatched English cottages. So I am always on the look out and love this picture.
Although I have to say the highlight of the vacation was the salami. Now I have been for over 3 years wanting to try Salumi salami. This is Mario Batali's father. His store is in Seattle and I have never made it over. Well Anjou Bakery had sandwiches with Salumi Salami. I tried not to jump up and down but I did call Angie from the bakery to tell her what I was eating. I also thanked them and hopefully did not look like a salami stalker. I have to say the salami was wonderful. It did not have a strong taste. No pepper-corns, strong garlic. It was a pale pink and tasted of very fresh pork. It was sooo yummy. Now I have to learn how to make my own. Also I had the most amazing caramel/pecan bar. I can still taste it.
