Not too long ago, a new bakery came to town, "A Little Something Sweet". It is also a little something pink and a little something polka dot! Let's start with their polka dot trash can.
This pink polka dot Coke machine
The black chandelier is fabulous against the pink and black polka dot walls.
They have their own sweet tree.
A pink and black poodle cake.
This was the scene on opening night in this tiny bakery.
And here is what the whole effect of the room looks like.
Pretty sweet, huh? My nest post will be the second half of this bakery post. By the way, we are getting the snow and ice storm tonight, so if you don't hear from me for awhile, you will know we have lost power..

It’s not smart to stuff yourself
with sweets, nor is glory piled
on glory good for you.
See this gate? There is something special behind it. So let's go in, shall we?
Let's go through the portal and walk on the path.
And here it is...Virginia House, in Richmond Virginia. It is made from the materials from a 16th century priory in England. They were shipped here and the house was built from them.
Here is part of the decorative facade and chimney, edited a bit to make it pop.
Here is one of the beautiful stained glass windows.
As you see, there was a chain over the entrance, so I had to take all these pictures from the street. But I did not care, because I think the best thing about this house is out on the street, not inside. It is this huge, winding and curving wall. Though I researched it well, I have not found out anything about the wall! But that is O.K., too. I always did love a mystery!

Here is what some of the houses around here looked like last fall and this fall. And what have we here? A pink pig guarding some fall decorations. Does anyone have any idea how a pig is a fall decoration?
The three stooges of the candy corn world.
Something very common around here, a wagon decoration.
An orange ghost blowing in the wind.
A house with beautiful crotons on the porch.
A very skinny fellow napping in an Adirondack chair. I think he could use a few candy bars and some Ensure.
And here is a strange bird indeed. Actually, they leave him out all year, and move him around all the time. You never know where he will turn up. I can't figure out what the deal is. At first I thought it was a child's C.D. player.
