Weekend and Owl Mugs

This weekend was quite spectacular. Spent Saturday with Dad getting lunch at a hole in the wall tavern, followed by a trip to the brewery.  Today I went to Goodwill (see thrifted goods below!), quickly bopped into the library and made a much needed pit stop at the iconic Union Dairy. Spent this evening with Kenny Ray at Vintage Madison- a neat little event that included $3 Old Fashinoneds, a vintage clothing sidewalk sale of sorts, followed by a vintage clothing fashion show. Styles ranging from the 1940's to the 1970's. I was in retro heaven. Here's to hoping next weekend is the "cat's pajamas" too!

I've been waiting to leaf thru this book forever! Finally found a copy at my hometown library. Plan on ordering my copy next week...will help to justify my growing collection. 

A little hometown history. 

This ice cream parlor has been around forever. Try a scoop of Monster Cookie Dough when you're in town!

My one thrifty find at Goodwill. I'll collect nearly anything owl related. Didn't really realize I had a mug collection going until this afternoon...
Tada! Aren't they cute. Makes me want to brew a spot of tea!

Oh Madison! Lovely Madison!
