Friday Night Dinner Ideas?

If you happen to be looking for a nice place for dinner on a Friday night, stop by Restaurant 101 in
Historic Downtown Mocksville, NC

The food and service were both fantastic and if I get a chance to go back thru this little town. I am definitely going back. I enjoyed meeting Susan P. and April and we had a blast explaining the road trip we were on.  If you are looking for a great dinner stop by Restaurant 101 at your earliest opportunity. you won't be disappointed.

The Old Silk Route

Tucked away in a corner of downtown Aberdeen, NC is a treasure like none other. I wandered in to a wonderful gallery run by the most delightful lady and had the best time. For a moment, (okay several hours) time didn't exist. This little shop had the most beautiful silk tapestries, silver jewelry, East Asian clothing, Art , Home Decor and so much more. Ann Magee, the delightful lady I told you about, was just such a joy to talk to and she has traveled through Brazil, and India and Pakistan and collected such beautiful things.

I couldn't possibly choose a favorite, although I have tried several times.  I can't wait to go back and spend more time with Ann and in her shop. I feel as though I missed so many things by seeing so much. Kind of like the forest for the trees.
I will be posting more about Ann and her wonderful shop and a project we are planning to collaborate on soon. In the meantime if you want to feast your eyes on some wonderful East Asian art  and silk tapestries check out  The Old Silk Route. You just can't blame me if you go crazy for the gorgeous colors and textures like I did.

No Particular Place to go but so much to see

The road trip was wonderful! I can't wait to tell you about the wonderful people I met and the inspiration I found in the places I have never seen before.  The weather was magnificent  and I could only wonder, "Why did we wait so long to do this?" It really was lots of great fun.

Having spoken many times of my penchant with odd names, I won't bore you with the details again, but I will give you a hint, our first picture was taken at:

 I kid you not! Do you ever look at street signs and wonder who comes up with these names?

The first stop along this path was at a State Park in NC, that I didn't even know existed. It was beautiful. 

 This Park has camping sites and kayaking tours, Hiking trails and looks like some place I definitely need to visit in the fall when the colors are changing!

The trees were so gorgeous! The river birch and bald cypress, oaks and gum trees were just reaching for the heavens with all of their might and the sun streaming through their leaves was breathtaking to behold.
You might want to look for some trees in my designs soon........
