The above photo is a piece of art we saw in a window while in Asheville the last few days. It took me a minute to sort it out in my mind but when I did, I thought it was very clever. First, there are two books, intertwined with the pages folded in a decorative way. Next you see two figures; one on the top level and one below. Upon closer inspection, you can see the top one is dangling a string with a penny attached. Do you get it? I did – I think: A penny for your thoughts.
Insert chocolate here. Yes, I think I will.
These photos are from the French Broad Chocolate Lounge. If you have never been to Asheville, it should be on your ‘must experience’ list. Lots of interesting delights there like – Surprise! Chocolate!
and my husband loves their Lavender Crème Brûlée.
We were lucky to discover UNCA (University of North Carolina – Asheville) was having a free festival. While there, I took this photo of Millie the monkey and my husband. (Husband is on the right.)
Insert more chocolate here. Okay, but only because
I think you should have a good idea of what you can expect when you go to the Chocolate Lounge. Check out the pretty wrappers.
Now back to the festival. We had an opportunity to make some wax hands. That was quite a unique experience and it was interesting to see how different people chose to pose.
This is the way mine turned out.
And this is the way my husband’s turned out. I think it was supposed to be ‘thumbs up’ but you know, Sebastian thought it was meant to be ‘hey, look at me!’
Here are the last photos from our trip that I wanted to share. This rich dark pink dogwood tree in full bloom was beautiful . . .
and this is Tucker, an Australian shepherd – not mine but related in a way. Let’s call him a ‘granddog’. And he really is a grand dog. I think he’ll be smarter than me in just a couple of days! “Hey, Tucker!”
As you can see, I did not fall off the edge of the planet since my last post. I didn’t even fall off the mountain! Now I have to turn my attention back to the work at hand and put my hands to work. Thanks so much for stopping by!
