This morning we were up early as my husband thought
he had an appointment. When we realized that
the appointment wasn't today but another day,
we decided to go goof off. We have a brochure that
tells all about 5 antique malls in the St. Louis area,
so we decided to visit the St. Charles Antique Mall
and then drive through the historic district.
The sidewalks and streets are brick and
most of the buildings are brick in St. Charles.
The city dates to 1769 when it founded by
Louis Blanchette, a French Canadian
Fur Trader. Many French Canadians
came to settle the city. Today I loved
seeing all the corn husks that were decorating
the town doorways and lamp posts.
I always love the special plant details
in historic areas.
I wish I could tell you that I went to this tea room below but we
were dressed very casually for the day. Another day for sure!
