Probably here;On our recent Conroe trip, every time we said we were going to the Antique Rose Emporium someone would ask, “Are you going to Martha’s Bloomers?” Well, heck, we can take a hint. And it’s in Navasota, on our way, so why not? It’s a lovely spot: and they have a tea room, so we went there for lunch. Sadly, they were out of the first 3 things I ordered and what I got was eminently forgettable, but never mind. They have cats. On the other hand, we might have been here: This fabulous store is in Montgomery and one could spend hours there perusing the beautiful things, tasting wine, trying on jewelry, reading cookbooks, trying to decide which antique chandelier to buy. As they say, The Rancher’s Daughter is a “purveyor of things fine and funky.” Oh yes, it is.
But enough of this lollygagging. We came this direction for a purpose–and after only a few detours, we reached our destination only to be greeted with this heartbreaking sign.And where were we? Ice cream heaven. Now, the tour thing was a problem, but it didn’t stop us from going upstairs to the ice cream parlor, which was a good thing, because as Rosemary’s bib says… We fought our way through crowds of spring break trippers to the counter, stood more or less patiently in line… And achieved our goal. The crankies were avoided for another day. And all was well.
