ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! **Door County, Wisconsin Get-Away**

Last Week...  ~ In between Selling at the Northwind Garden Show ~AND~ my RoadSide Sale, Frog Husband whisked ChiPPy-SHaBBy off to our FaVoRiTe Getaway Spot - DOOR COUNTY, WISCONSIN!*!*!  


 Door County is about 2-1/2 hours North of Cedarburg, ...  It's located on a picturesque peninsula ~ known for it's cherry orchards & water activities...  We started off with some nice strong coffee in our "vacation mugs"...  The sailboat mug was a purchase from "Clay Bay Pottery" - in Ellison Bay - on the peninsula...



 It's a beautiful drive for us up to The Door...  I love when the road  skirts Lake Michigan...  One of our FaVoRiTe Stops is DODGE ANTIQUES in Downtown, Algoma...  Tom the owner is quite the character!!!  GREAT STOP!!!  



 Fred & Co. is one of my FaVoRite ShoPPing Places...  Terry Goettelman, the owner is just darling!*!*!   We always stop there after having Breakfast at the White Gull Inn (best cherry pancakes on the peninsula!!!)







 Sometimes Terry brings her Himalayan Cat - "Everest" to the shop!!!  This was a "Rare Moment" when she let Everest downstairs in the store...  Sweetest Cat Ever!*!*!




 Fred & Co.



 We had a gift certificate to the Blacksmith Inn...



 Everything is done 1st class at the Blacksmith Inn...  The gardens/grounds/rooms are soooo well taken care of... ~ Just beautiful...



BesT Weather ~ enjoying breakfast out on the deck overlooking a view of the water...  This side of the Peninsula is much quieter...  



 There's never a time when we don't make at least "2" stops at Viva la Cottage when we're up in Door County!!!  Angie's store is like a "little Anthropologie" ...







 Viva's Gardens are just GoRgeOuS!!!  These "Royal Wedding Poppies" were in bloom when we were there...




MARK YOUR CALENDAR
For THIS YEAR'S ViNtaGe Market @ Viva la Cottage!!!

 We've always wanted to try Gibraltar Grill in Fish Creek...  We had a DELICIOUS lunch on their outdoor patio!*!*!
