A Quick Trip that took us far away...

A few weeks back, my sister and I took a quick half day trip up to Waukesha, Wisconsin to "Just a Little Bit Country". We had been up there last fall and thought it was time for another visit.
This preserved 1850's Wisconsin Homestead is situated right on a busy highway.
But step on the property and you are transported to another time...

On this visit, we took the time to have lunch on the homestead at Jack's Café.
This building may have been the pig barn at one time, but now it is an incredible period tavern.
You can read more about its history here.
The inside was lovely, but the day was so perfect, we had lunch on the porch enjoying the views and the breeze. The food was delicious and for an hour or so I thought I was on vacation and didn't want to go home :)

*sigh* all decorated in prim perfection.

You can read and see more about this homestead on my post last year - just click here

And I couldn't help but share this little wiener dog - Orion always puts a smile on my face :)
"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."
~Phillipians 4:8-9
Blessings, Patti

Looks like an awesome place to visit and your lunch on the porch sounded so serene. When you post pictures of Orion I just smile - he's so sweet.
