FFM, DOUBLE DIP, & AWARDS

FFM, DOUBLE DIP, & AWARDS


It's time for another FRIDAY FLEA MARKET!! I'm offering the above little pedestal compote here today on my selling blog Angelic Accents a la Carte.
I'm also offering the silk floral swag above here. Please click on my selling blog to see more goodies that I'm offering today and to find out more about FFM!


Isn't this PINK Ice Cream Cone just adorable?!?!


DH & I were visiting our daughter & her family last week & stopped at this cute little restaurant that is literally a drive-in....


complete with 4 sets of overhead glass garage doors! How cute!!

Its called DOUBLE DIP & they serve all kinds of ice cream, sandwiches, ice cream, hot dogs, and did I mention ice cream?


I loved the colored lights, the huge ice cream cone sculpture, the palm trees, the checkerboard floors, the fans, & the brightly colored signs on the walls.



We had their famous chicken salad on a croissant ~ yummy! And the best little "cake" cookie!! The owner came out & sat & visited with us, too.


I think I'll have their Mango Dango on our next visit!! Or maybe the Skinny Dip Sundae!!


Hey, we HAVE to go back ~ we PROMISED the owner!!


And now to another award....


My sweet friend & PRH Sister Connie of Living Beautifully gave me the I LOVE YOUR BLOG award! I'm truly humbled as I do honestly believe that Connie visits EVERY blog out there & comments on them all !! Don't ask me how she does this.....all I know is that she has 5 computers, no TV, & must be able to type on one computer with her hands & on another simultaneously with her newly reconstructed toes!!


Connie & I have been friends for more years than I can count, first met when I sold her some pretty decorator fabric ~ probably something with ROSES on it if I know my "sis"!! We are in a decorating group, & we also share my mother, as Connie now claims her as her own! And that is just fine with Mother AND with me! :0)


I'm supposed to pass this award on to others whose blogs I love to read. Well, first on my list would have to be Miss Connie's, for all the above mentioned reasons & the simple fact that she always makes me giggle!! I also adore Cindy of My Romantic Home because she has the best pictures & posts almost daily! There are tons more blogs that I love to read & drool over the pictures, so I'm just going to pass this award on to ALL of you! You all add so much to our blogging community, some with beautiful decorating, creative crafts, gorgeous gardening pictures, helpful hints, & down-right hysterical musings! I love you all!


Hugs,

What a darling restaurant!! I have a thing about faux ice cream cones. Wierd, huh?! I guess it's the colors and the reminder of Summer fun. I don't know. Anyhow, have a great weekend. Blessings... Polly
