We slept in on Saturday--believe it or not, HA!! Patti had heard of a little winery near Davenport that served lunch, so we were going to head that way with a stop in LeClaire, a quaint little town on the Mississippi River.
It was HOT, but being the troopers that we are, we ventured up and down the main drag and checked out almost every shop, LOL. In a big old house that has been turned into a shop they had the CUTEST lawn ornaments made out of "things". I bought the pink flamingo above made out of an old golf club and 2 "bugs" made out of glass vases and rusty wire. They had ones made out of old tools, lightbulbs, clothespins, mason jars and more--and GREAT prices too!! We also each found some adorable costume jewelry in another shop.
Then it was onto the winery where we had yummy sandwiches. We each had it narrowed down to 2 (the same ones--BFF's don't you know!!) so we split them and each had a half of our choices--a rueben panini and a roast beef with cheese, lettuce, tomato and "sweet beet horseradish", never heard of that but I recommend you give it a try if you every come across it!!
Then we puttered around town, stopped to visit a friend of Patti's and came back home for munchies--and an early bedtime!!!
