Bakery Dreams


Don't you just love
Family Circus
by Bill Keane
**
This is one that hit home with me.
~Bakery Joy~
How can you stand in a bakery and not
feel warm and cozy.
Choosing a treat.... looking at
everything displayed. It can be a
very hard decision!!
I feel so sorry for the children who have
never had this kind of experience.
The bakery counter in the supermarket
is just NOT the same as going in
a little local bakery.
A lot of the espresso shops have a goodies
display. It is a little bit more like a bakery.

Holly & I
Have a dream
**
She does want to continue her art studies after
graduation with the hope of becoming a
Cinemagraphic Sculptor.
She wants to help create the creatures and costumes
they use in making movies like they
do at Weta Workshop.
But...in addition
***
We both love to bake.
*
One day....
We want to own an
Artsy Bakery-Espresso cafe
***
We want it to be a place where just walking in the
door makes you feel good. You can check your
troubles outside and leave the rest
of the world behind.
***
Besides having wonderful homemade treats,
it would be filled with a magical assortment
of artist's work displayed and
available for sale.
***
We want it to have an old world, Tolkien inspired,
Bag-end /Shire
Middle Earth atmosphere
**
It will seem like there are actually elves
baking in the kitchen.
***
As you finish brushing the last bit of crumbs
from your lap, you will blink and
wonder if that was a faerie
you just saw fly off with
part of someones
cinnamon
roll.
***
At this point....Holly is a sophomore in high school.
We have several more years to collect and perfect
our recipes. I have worked as a barrista
in the past, so I can whip up
magnificent mochas.
**
We actually hope to travel for a year after
she graduates. We want to visit
England and Scotland
For some reason it feels like home in my
heart there, and I have never even
been before!
**
We also want to travel around the U.S.A. in a RV,
visiting lots of festivals and taking art workshops.
We love to meet folks and share stories.
**
Right now we are just trying to figure
out how we will finance it all.
My wise Granny Ruth always said...
"The money will come"
And you know what.....
She was always right about that!

Dreams should become a reality. Sounds like a fun plan.

That is sucha wonderful idea! One of my favorite memories with my grandma was one Christmas she took me to her bakery, back in the day when you went to a different shop for everything you needed. I remember there were little red flocked boots with candy in them on top if the counter, and she bought me one! I remember that felling in that bakery, the coziness, the wonderful aromas....I hope your dreams come true! :)

It is so good to have dreams! I have been thinking about opening a coffee shop/bakery for a while now. I even found the cutest little building for lease. It used to be a bakery. I wish that I had the money to do it. I'm just so afraid with the economy like it is. This has always been a dream of mine. I will keep it in the back of my mind for a while. I hope your dreams come true!

Hugs,
Lee Laurie

Those are wonderful plans! We are always going to need a bakery no matter how high tech the world gets. Everyone craves a little sweet in our lives. Thanks for coming by grannymountain. The boat was an email I recieved from my SIL, not my husband. We can sympathize with this guy, it's hard to back a boat trailer! And yes, we are very close to Berryville...about 40 miles I'd say. We are about 30 miles from Eureka. Fayetteville/Springdale/Rogers/and Bentonville now join in NW Arkansas. We live out Highway 12 East of Rogers. Isn't it a small world? Have a great day!

I just re-read my post, I meant to say the BOAT PICTURE was an email I recieved from my SIL and not a pic of my husband...I should always proof-read!

Lisa said...

I cannot show this to my mom. She is dying to get something good from a bakery. There really is nothing like going to the bakery and getting all the great things you want! CUTE cartoon!
Hugs, Lisa
