Yesterday we went back to Greenwood, Missouri
to take a "relook" at 2 items we had seen
there - but unfortunately, the 2 shops were closed.
The one shop called "As Time Goes By Greenwood"
was where earlier I had found this cute patio
tea cart for our deck. I also had gotten a
bird house there that I will show you later.
They had a sign on the door that they were closed
due to their air conditioning going out. Since
it was in the 90's, I hardly blame them for closing early.
The other shop was also closed in Greenwood
......so we went on down
the road looking for another adventure.
In Lee's Summit, Missouri we came upon Henry's Tea Room.
It was after lunchtime and since we didn't even know we
were going there - we were happy they invited us in for a lovely lunch of delicious salads and tea and dessert.
I never expected to see someone I knew there but as we
walked past one of the rooms I saw Midge Davis from Colorado Springs, Colorado. I knew her because she worked with her sister, the late Jan Simpich at Simpich Character Dolls in Old Colorado City. Midge was with a group of high school friends
having a reunion in one of the rooms.
Please remember I wasn't properly dressed for tea as we
were just out relaxing and antiquing and the tea room
just popped up in the journey.
It was a delight to see Midge.
This was the shop in the upstairs of the old church and the tea
room was in the basement:
Did you ever run into a friend in a place you never expected?
