Hubby and I decided to get out and get some fresh air.
On Saturday, we headed into Virginia Highlands to wander through the local shops and grab a bite to eat for lunch.
I was thrilled when we stumbled upon a quaint store full of candles (all marked 30-50% off). I had pretty much depleted our supply over the holidays.
Shoreline by Aquisse (Ocean Breeze, Coastal Flowers, Drenched Wood), Gullah southern botanical perfumed soy candle (magnolia, gardenia, amercian holly, clean musks, exotic bensoin resin, and a warm backround of sweet vanilla and oak wood), Paddywax Apothecary (Tobacco & Patchouli).
The Gullah candle is part of the Low Country Luxe Collection. They also have Savannah, Charleston, Living in High Cotton, Sea Grass, and Spanish Moss. Perfect gift for a Southern Friend!
The Shoreline candle is quite unique, as you will see in the following pictures.
Once you take the lid off...you will find these underneath a cap.
and then...the lid becomes a coaster for the candle!!
Apparently we did not get enough fresh air on Saturday (we are making up for a couple weeks of snow and ice after all), so we headed up to Dahlonega for the afternoon after church.
First stop, Main Street Burger...we happened to stumble upon this. I was reading the menu outside when a young girl stopped and said, "Miss, their burgers are amazing." And, to my surprise they offered Gluten free buns (however, they were out due to the weather the previous week and not receiving their shipment). Nonetheless, the burgers were amazing as well as the sweet potato fries. They offer a good variety of milkshakes as well. Great place to take the kiddos if you are up that way. I can see why the college kids at North Georgia love it!
We strolled around the town, stopping in a few stops. The last was a larger antique market. I was thrilled to stumble upon this Royal Albert Plate. One in a series of "A Man's Best Friend" collection.
You see, we have a very spoiled Cairn Terrier, named Kylee, who also adores her red ball!! This was perfect!!!
And lastly, I am trying to cut out sugared drinks (mainly my sweet tea...so hard). I am not a fan of plain water. I was thrilled to stumble upon this new flavor by La Croix water.
They are quite good!
Well, enough ramblings. Hope you have a happy Tuesday!!
