We had an amazing time in Philadelphia this weekend, attending the wedding of our good friends, exploring the city and stuffing our faces with some good eats. When I first met my husband, he was living in Philadelphia, so the city holds many a fond memory for us.
Whenever I am in town, there are a few shops that always demand my attention. First up is Verde...a gorgeous gift shop and florist. I love the way that they display their goods...like these letterpress cards clothes-pinned to an antique birdcage...how creative!
Of course I couldn't resist checking out the fabric supply at Spool, an adorable shop devoted to all things sewing.
Their selection of kids clothing patterns was especially cute, and very inspiring for further-on down the road.
I even found some great prints for a few nursery projects I am starting...
We found an incredible burger joint in a rather sketchy part of town, aptly named Sketch Burger. We don't eat beef, or pork, so sometimes, burger joints don't have a lot to offer us, but Sketch had an incredible selection of vegan-friendly burgers, turkey burgers and even elk burgers. Guess which one my husband chose...that's right, elk!
He was in heaven, and I viewed it as his reward for shopping with me all day!
With a side of hand-cut fries...of course.
Despite the sketch factor, I highly recommend this place if you should visit Philly. Just be warned...it is WAY off the beaten path!
I will be back tomorrow with a sneak peek of the nursery progress! I can't wait to show you what I have been up to!
