The Nicest and The Best



A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be. ~Douglas Pagels





I was so blessed to meet with a new friend at a local coffeeshop/bakery. Though I've only spoken with Angela a few times, I do think that she is a kindred spirit.

The little local coffeeshop/bakery is fairly new.  The decor is really sweet.  Or should I say YUMMY?  Angela and I sat at this table.


I really like this "lamp" made of a metal cheese grater and colander.  Pull the metal cord and it does light up.  The light shows through the star patterns in the colander.

Next time I go, I'll take more pictures. Such simple and sweet surroundings.  I wonder where the owner bought these or if someone she knows made them?  I may work up the courage to ask.

I am looking forward to the Ladies Bible Study this morning.  Apart from coffee with Angela and the grocery store, the only place I have been this week is the veterinarian's office.  Lilah Rose has not been feeling well since we arrived home from South Carolina.  I think she is finally feeling better.  I'm hoping so anyway.

I have been remiss at visiting and my plan is to do so this afternoon. Until then!

    1. Sandy, I wonder how difficult making this lamp would be. Probably not too difficult. I'll have to ask my husband about it.

  2. What cute decor! I was supposed to go to lunch with the gals at a new neighborhood restaurant but they are closed today to install some new equipment. So we are meeting at Cracker Barrel instead. Hope Lilah Rose is on the mend.

    1. Arlene, Cracker Barrel is a good second choice! Lilah Rose is a bit better today. She ate her kibble.

  8. What a fun idea to make a lamp like this, and it actually work! I could probably glue a colander and grater together, but would have no clue how to make it actually work, lol! So sweet that you can meet up with a kindred spirit at such a delightful spot! So thankful the hurricane wasn't a problem for you :)

    1. Marilyn, I would guess there is a youtube video on how to put a lamp together. I think it might be hard to make it not wobbly! xo

  9. The lamp is beautiful! I have seen similar ones at some of our vintage boutiques. So glad you got to chat and eat with a new friend! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
