Craft show. Wow. Beautiful home!!!
This craft show is held once over year. The crafts were great but this home was beautiful!!









Market place commons. myrtle beach
We went to art at the beach. It was very unique and different from the craft shows in nj. Obviously there was a nautical vibe. Pottery, gel candles , beautiful marine animals handmade out of wood (I fell in live with a $200 whale), jewelry and palm baskets.
Then we ventured to the shops. It reminded me a lot of our promenade in marlton and the one I visited in San Francisco near Des’s. :). Once again I was bummed I did not bring lily. It was very dog friendly from my favorite (anthropologie) to the quant little boutiques



The shopping area is gorgeous. The palm trees had christmas lights already on them which was really different to see. It definitely put a smile in my face.

We finally ended with the best cup of coffee at an adorable husband and wife owned cafe. This coffee was perfect. I had the medium roast. They also gave free refills!!! Mom and I sat outside and people watched a bit then we had a great little chat with the very informative and friendly owner (with an awesome Elsa braid). She told us about the area, about the horses on the beach (5 min drive from where we were). She told us about her history. Her 8 children and a very touching story of the adoption of a 15 year old from Latvia. She was a warm person. Almost as warm as the coffee :).

I told her my mom was my best friend and I immediately noticed tears in her eyes. She was so excited that her daughter from Vermont was arriving this evening at 5:30. They would be having their Thanksgiving tommorow! She was beyond excited! I am a bit jealous I will not be feasting with them! I asked her to save me some leftovers. I just know they will have an incredible time together. Not everyone gives me the great vibe as she and her husband AND their cafe did :). I can not wait to go back and hope y’all stop by to (if you do make sure to get me some of those thanksgiving day leftovers!! I love turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce…..oh and of course coffee!)

The Roasted Bean





We also saw the most beautiful grasses and flowers. So of course we had to get some pictures.




And…. I just had to take a picture of this…..because you know….I am five years old 🙂


This morning after the community craft fair Ellen took my mom to Krave for bagels. I opted out of it because I wanted to run a few errands on my own. Mom said she had the BEST bagel ever there. Cinnamon raisin with almond and raisin cream cheese. Ellen had a croissant with shrimp salad, which my mom ended up bringing some home with her since she liked it. For some reason seafood salad was not appealing to me today



Once again a wonderful and actually relaxing trip. I may end the night with a fun puzzle I picked up……or maybe some tv :).


Getting ready for the long drive tomorrow. :(.

However not without a hearty delicious breakfast from no other than my favorite……The Shack!
