Brunch, antiques, Indian Food, and "Milk"
Sam, Jane, Henry, Mani, and I all met up for brunch at Blueberry Hill in LaGrange on Saturday, which was wonderful.
Then we girls let the boys go off to do their own thing (which included riding the carousel at Brookfield Zoo), and we headed to the antique mall in LaGrange. They were having a sidewalk sale, but Sam and I weren't too impressed this year. So we went inside the mall, and I did find some cool things, like...
this charming sheet music
this lovely teacup
We stopped at Starbucks for some coffee, then headed to Trader Joe's, Borders, and a few boutiques on the way to the car. Afterward, I took Sam to the Honda dealer to pick up her CRV, and we headed over to another antique shop, where I found...
this pretty magazine
I parted ways with Sam after that to fetch Pete (who was at home without wheels) and headed back to Sam's house. Mani and Henry were back, and we all went to Khyber Pass in Oak Park for some delish Indian food.
We all had the buffet, and I tried some rose milk, which was utterly wonderful.
I must learn how to make it at home....
Anyhow, then we headed back to their house and watched "Milk," which was pretty good.
Everywhere we went, people were fussing over Henry and Jane. They were quite the little charmers and enjoyed the attention.
I plan to frame the sheet music and magazine as I've framed others in my house (the framed Life magazine is my favorite so far).
And the teacup is going in my growing collection. All in all, I didn't spend all that much, yet I still got some great vintage finds to add to my happy home.
