Market Street - Wine Shop and Grocery

I'm eager to stop in to this quaint little wine shop and grocery. It looks as thought its opening soon. I'll be checking for more information each time I drive past.

PS - Don't you love the awning mixed with the steel blue painted brick?

New Home

We recently moved to a new apartment. Its was once an old transfer station and loading dock for the neighboring railway (it runs right next to the building; trains pass by multiple times each day), but now its the most amazing apartment community. I think the architect did a wonderful job mixing old and new.

I will admit that I had a hard time adjusting to our new place, until our furniture arrived. As I'm personalizing the space, I find that its more and more me. Its not the same as our last apartment, but its unique in its own ways. Clay tiles line the exterior of the building and extend along the southern wall of our space. The metal and glass windowpanes mixed with the handmade clay tiles add a historic feel to an otherwise updated apartment.

The place is still being unpacked, so for now I'll leave you with a few photos of the exterior and neighboring barn. Enjoy, and expect more photos soon!

Caspari Flatware

Love this Flatware! Super cute, but is it dishwasher safe? Also have my eyes on some of their paper products! Can't wait to walk downtown to their shop and check out what other products they sell.
