I took my mother, aunt and cousin on a day trip to East Aurora, New York. It is in a snowbelt and lovely, fluffy, penny-sized flakes were falling softly. We stopped at Vidler's 5&10, and the Wooly Lamb yarn store.
The highlight of the day was lunch at the Roycroft Inn. It's on the Roycroft campus. The Roycroft movement was based on the philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement which started about 1900. The Inn is decorated with Arts and Crafts furniture and pottery. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. I also have to say I prefer to go for lunch than dinner when I go out to eat. The dessert menu is extra nice because it has the option of just ordering a sliver portion (which is more than enough even for a person with a never-ending sweet tooth like me). East Aurora is also the home of Fisher-Price and has an outlet store. I almost went there but at the last minute I remembered - I can make toys for the baby! What a brainstorm!
