13 Years of Good Friends, Good Food, Good Thrifting!
Sunday was our anniversary, our 13th. To celebrate Duane planned a surprise trip to Pennsylvania to visit some good friends. I was somewhat suspicious but he held fast & would not tell me a thing. I was super frustrated to say the least. The trip was quick but was so fun. We ate lots of yummy food including this sandwich we had for our anniversary dinner.Besides our friends (and the good thrift/antique stores they have) it is probably the only good thing to come out of Pennsylvania. It's called a Pittsburgh Style sandwich and it was delicious! We ate in this adorable little cafe' in downtown Brookville, Pa. called the Courthouse Cafe'. The service was a little cold but the atmosphere was great, so was the food. I couldn't help but take a few pics.I was especially in love with the chocolate brown tin ceiling!Duane even took me thrift store shopping! I picked up a couple of things while I was there. Here are my favs.The cake plate & cover came from this fabulous old house in Clarion called The Fulmer House. Three floors stuffed full of antiques & collectibles. And with a bargain basement what's not to love! I wished we could have stayed longer but it was great to get away. I can't wait to do it again!
