A May Day

Wednesday I spent a lovely spring day with a friend and it was a tonic. Planned months ago, we changed our destination and ended up in the Atlanta neighborhood Virginia Highland. I didn't take the camera.

Virginia Highland is the home of Knitch yarn shop. There were some lovely things and a good deal of cashmere, but I didn't buy anything. I have plenty of yarn at the moment.

We wandered in and out of a few shops having the most fun and only spending money at Paper Source. Isn't this hand dyed silk ribbon sublime?! I'm not sure how I want to use it just yet. It seems enough at the moment to just look at it.

"I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new."
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Went to Paper Source last time I was visiting my Atlanta daughter. Don't they have the most fun stuff? We also browsed through Knitch and ate wonderful gelato in some tiny shop across the street.

And I love the quote.

Spending time with friends or my kids is always the highlight of my trips "around the circle." And I think of all of them Atlanta is my favorite, with Montgomery coming in a close second. Just wish I had a few down here! Sounds like a fun day.

What a fantastic day. Nothing beats a day with good friends. Love that ribbon. Yummy colors.
