The National Portrait Gallery -Washington, Dc

I haven’t shared a place to visit in DC for ages and am so excited to share one of my favorites today! The National Portrait Gallery is simply lovely. With all the different art exhibits, marble tile, and white statues I feel I could be Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice for just a moment….

Christmas at Union Market

I just love the market during the Holidays. The day after Thanksgiving the tree is decorated and the lights are hung. A local Christmas Tree farm sets up a stand outside for the neighboring families. Very proud of our recycled water bottle chandelier. It’s so pretty with the fresh boughs hung on it.

Uncle Chips

Uncle Chips is a little cookie shop on North Capitol Street NW. It ships cookies everywhere-and if you have any you will know why! I love the lights outside. And on warm summer days they set up chairs and tables outside as well. You enter off the main street. Be careful; it is very easy…

Capitol Hill Books-Washington DC

I stumbled across this old book store when I visited Eastern Market this week. The entire store is covered in books from floor to ceiling. I’m not even a book fan at all but I love when I can find a one-of-a-kind-shop. This was certainly one of them!The brick side-walk with red Geraniums gave me…
