Classic cars and a tea set. Day trip!

So, not too far from Las Vegas is Boulder City (with the dam), which we love, because it has a charming little old town street, a historic district with homes from the 30's and it is very "Mayberry." Well, if you use your imagination a little...

But anyway, point being, they do all kinds of cute small town things, like this car show and antiques market that we happened upon last time we drove out there for lunch. It was such a blast! We had a bite to eat and walked around and ditched Vegas for a few hours. 

I especially love going to Boulder for antiques, since we don't have too many good shops in the city. Lots of depression glass and vintage china, and lucky me, at the antiques market I came across the most amazing tea set. It's only silver plate, but I'm not complaining! It was in stellar shape with not a scratch on it, complete with tea, coffee, sugar, cream, waste bowl and tray. It was a steal, and the best part is that it's the same pattern as our silverware. What luck! It was like it was waiting for us!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Happy Sunday!

Where's Branson?
