Finding gifts for Edie is always a challenge. She is only four inches tall. She likes all toys but vintage play things best of all.
We went to the Antique Store in Greenville, Rhode Island. It was very festive inside and out. It's so much fun to look around!
I spotted some lovely play things I knew she would like. They called to me from the shelf even though I tried to walk away. It seemed frivolous to bring home toys to Edie but I caved in since she needed a Christmas gift.
After all that looking around, that we needed lunch and soon found ourselves on Federal Hill in Providence. This is definitely restaurant row! We finally settled on Mexican food since we had been eating a lot of Italian food recently.
Edie couldn't wait to see her toys when we got home. She loves them and has rearranged her little wooden village endlessly.
She also inspected the Annalee Crocodile ( 2004 edition and a character from Peter Pan) who came home with us, too, for no good reason.... except he was six dollars and very cute. He is not dangerous at all.
So glad we traveled when the roads were dry! Our first BIG STORM of 2014, on the way! We could see a foot of snow and wind chill factors well below zero. Brr!
Stay warm if you are in a cold weather zone...
and as always,
enjoy the day!
