We were looking for a place to eat lunch and do a little shopping, but next time we'll do the history thing.
The first place we stopped was The Lavender Cottage and Garden gift shop...
...and, of course, I had to bring home a bunch of dried lavender.
We saw cute retro things and chicken art. I like the painting of the chickens eating a slice of watermelon. How summer-in-the-country is that?
The Old Sautee Store was built in in 1872 and has old things to see, and new things to purchase.
...and country garden decorations were calling me.
Here's where we had lunch. And yes, that's a "green roof".
It has ivy and lots of miscellaneous plants growing on it.
A cute garden shop, with another "green roof".
The sign on the door said, "Open," but no one was there.
One of the sandwich shop employees said if we wanted to buy something, just choose what we liked, and pay at the Old Sautee Store.
It's nice to see the honor system is still alive.
Great rustic scenes and vignettes...
...and a big shady porch and comfy twig chair for relaxing.
Thanks for tagging along on our little road trip.
