It is hard to believe it is December, when you can walk around in a trench coat or sweater…but that is exactly what happened last Saturday, when we went to Zionsville for Christmas in the village. There was a Christmas trolley transporting people
but we decided to just walk Main street and check out the antique stores, as well as a clock shop on Main street.
The finds of the day included a copper cookie cutter
We did see some beautiful old typewriters
– but none of those came home with us. My favorite antique store was Brown’s,
where we saw this gorgeous, sturdy and substantial candle holder:
It was carved out of a giant piece of heavy wood and painted red. I could envision it sitting on a large, rustic wood dinner table, with mismatched china, copper accessories, burlap place mats….someday. When I have my old house in Tuscany…Anyway, the building housing the antique store was adorable, complete with the stone walls you see in England/Scotland, and cute little bunny hopping around.
Sunday morning Michael and made beignets – utilizing the new cookie cutters purchased on Saturday
and watched a Sissy-esque French movie with Ingmar Bergman, Elena and Her Men.
The evening movie was Brando’s A Streetcar Named Desire, with ginger-miso salmon and broccolini.
