In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

Just Like Grandmas
Tea room, Boutique, Bed and Breakfast
Osakis, MN

After hubby's doctors appointment we went out to eat and do a little shopping
We love this little place and it isn't to far maybe 45 minutes from where we live. This is the stain glass window in the main parlor where we ate
Looking over the menu..the food has always been good and the portions just right

As we began eating Hubby says "weren't you going to show the food?" opps.. sorry about the half eaten plates. Hubby had the asparagus quiche, citrus salad and apple nut muffin. I had a sampler plate of two pasta salads one was chicken, cranberries, almonds, corkscrew pasta and a nice dressing the other was a wild rice, chicken, waterchestnuts, grapes and cashews and the usual onions, celery etc..I chose the rhubarb muffin

Hubbys plate

The outdoor restroom, it is really cute inside and has all the modern conveniences

We walked around the garden and courtyard where you find the 3 little shops

This has garden and beach themed gifts and a few winery items
It was the old school house
This was and outdoor kitchen and now has clothing and jewelry

Here we have christmas, northwoods, lakecabin, on the top floor and country and garden on the main floor, also the ice cream and food gifts.

Here is one of my purchases FAITH...if GOD brings you to it he will bring you through it. I put it above my kitchen sink so it will remind me as I do dishes.

Thanks for joining me I had a great time. Hope you enjoyed a bit of Minnesota in late summer.

What a delightful place! Your photos are just wonderful and oh, the food looks so good. This looks like a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. I love your framed art too. Hope you have a nice weekend.

Can't blame you for tucking into the food before taking photos; the food looks fabulous! Loved my visit today, the tea cottage looks a charm.
I'm really hungry as I've not eaten much today, been too busy and now it's almost too late to eat. Where does the time go???

I think if we ever make it up Minnesota way we would love to visit this place with you!The framed saying is perfect Alice, and a good reminder.

I very much like seeing the good times you and Paul have together.

Bring the outdoors in,put a plant there. Real or artificial. You could put twinkle lights on it for atmosphere. Have a relaxing vacation.
