Birthday in Boston

For my birthday on Sunday we went down to Boston for the day. Our first stop was the South End Open Market. I always loved the Talbot Street Art Fair in Indianapolis AND it fell right around my birthday (and my sister's!). In fact, the day I was born, my mom had been there earlier in the day and she likes to tell me how hot it was. I get the idea that it was HOT.

Anyway, this was a small show, but there were many wonderful booths. I think I'm going to save my purchases and lovely birthday gifts for another post. I immediately recognized the paintings at one booth because I've seen them around town. They were from local artist Lainey Hunter who also lives in Kittery!

We headed up to Harvard Square and browsed the shops and enjoyed an amazing brunch buffet at Henrietta's Table.

Finally, we stopped at my all-time favorite store, paper*source. By that time, my feet were sore and it was time to catch the bus!

Wow, that food looks wonderful! And I love the table setting and drinks and wow, I wish I lived in New England. I'm actually bookmarking their site in case I'm ever there. I don't know about you, but I actually plan my vacations based on what looks good to eat (well, that and if they've got an Ikea store- which we don't have in Colorado). Thanks for the beautiful pics. I'm starving now.
