Some things to make you drool

My sister kindly gave my husband and I vouchers for a "Chocoholic Tour" of the city for Christmas. It is actually a cunning plot on her behalf to get us to come to visit. It works! We finally booked our tour for this morning.
The tour not only included delicious chocolate...


...that we enjoyed with coffee and hot... (can you guess?)... chocolate (are you drooling yet)...

.. but we enjoyed it in some of the most beautiful settings in the city!
We learned interesting snippets about the history of the architecture (and a few juicy tidbits). We spent some time in an arcade that is my favorite part of the city. So much to photograph there. I was even tempted to take a macro shot of a pot plant but thought better of it - only to find myself surrounded by people with DSLRs taking photos of potplants and ceilings and floors and us. So I went ahead and pretended I was part of the photography class, too :)
So that was my morning. Doesn't get much better than that, does it?
But wait...
For digi-scrappers I have more... (well, yes this is a plug, but in digital scrapbooking land it can get quite confusing following designers from one store to another and I've been excited to see so many new designers joining the twolittlepixels crew).
New designers to twolittlepxiels this weekend ... A-liya, Siamese Studio, Blue Flower Art, SAS Designs, EljjDorado Design, Maue Designs, AnjaJ Designs, and Avdesigns. Check out this week's twolittlepixels newsletter to see a selection of their products. Gorgeous!!
