It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

 Our garden club went to Cheraw the other day to visit the Mennonite Restaurant called By the River's Edge.
 It was decorated in an old fashioned style.  See that dessert counter.  The waitress brought a sampler with twelve different yummy looking desserts.  We were going by Charlotte Alford's home for coffee and pie or I would have so indulged.  One of our members did get four different desserts in to go boxes to take home and savor.  Yummo.
                         Being a quilter I liked the facts that quilts were hung  around the restaurant.
 This is the owner.  She and her husband moved here from Utah two years ago.  They had done catering there but when the economy went south they needed to find another form of employment.  The Mennonite community in Morvin, NC, promised to help them if they would move here and open a restaurant.  Cheraw needed a nice place to eat and now they have one.
                                          I loved this poinsettia quilt. The flowers were 3-D.
 There is a lady artist in Cheraw who takes vintage clothes and turns them into paintings.  Isn't this awesome.  I have 3 vintage dresses I am going to offer her.

I like the chalk board wainscot  that they write on.
Billie Hardee Home for Boys On another note this is my grandson, Gates the Elf, helping Santa, his Poppy, out of the helicopter that delivered the gifts to the BHHB yesterday.  I think he is a pretty cute elf!
 
Have you been anywhere new  over the holidays?  Tell us about it!

Love the quilts and cute lunch place.
But what I love even more is that cute little elf walking Santa from his helicopter!
My brother sure knows how to impress those boys. Next year he'll have to arrive by jet or something to out do that one!
We have our Hollywild trip tonight! Lots of fun, and praying for no rain! We loved going to see the lights of JI, too.
