A Little Time To Relax


A Primitive Place ~Tammy

That is what hubby and I took….

A little time off  to time to relax.

We live approx. 2 hrs away from St. Louis, MO. and since Brett has a couple of vacation days we decided to take a little get away.

We had planned on going to The Longest Yard Sale this weekend but we currently have too many ores in the fire, so we decided against it.

It’s really okay though, to be honest, I haven't been in the mood to shop.


I know, but seriously, I’m not.

Well, at least for house type stuff or stuff for resale.

House type stuff, well, that is up in the air right now, as all of you know.

It just seems silly to fill this place up with anything else.

As for resale stuff, I really haven't had the time lately and I admit it, I also haven't been in the mood.

Even though on my trip to St. Louie I did hit GW and one antique store.

At the antique store I found a few more feed sack bags and these bowls.

They were selling these nesting bowls as a pair for an awesome price, so of course, I couldn't leave them behind. ;)

*I apologize for the poor quality of photos in this post.  They all were taken with my phone.

(Lazy of me, I know. LOL!)


I rearranged some stuff and now they are all displayed on my cabinet in the dining room.

At GW I picked up a few things for resale.

I absolutely love this mug and child’s cup.

While in St. Louis I had to eat at one of my favorite restaurants, The Old Spaghetti Factory.

Now if you have never ate at the one in St. Louis, You must!

It is located on the river front and I must say it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.

Here are some photos of inside.

I love this staircase.

In the center of the eating area there is a trolley car that also has tables for eating inside it.

And from the outside, there is a wonderful view of the Arch.

Not sure what the next building is exactly, but it is beautiful!

And how wonderful it is getting a face lift.

So tell me anyone local, is this some type of state government building??

Sure looks like one.

Hi Tam! I just passed through St. Louie on my way back from Oklahoma. The arch was beautiful! We will have to have another trip to the Spag. Factory, I LOVE PASTA!! And I'm sure my son would love to eat in that trolley! TFS!

Hi Tammy, I just had a post about my nephew vacation and one of the things we did was take them to St.Louis. We went to the Arch, so beautiful and also to a baseball game, well my sister took them but I stayed home from the game cause it was too hot. That day was 104 at the Arch. The building you have pictured is the old courthouse, it is so pretty. Have a great weekend!
Be blessed,

Looks like you had a fun time!! When I was a kid The Old Spaghetti Factory was a favorite place to eat for birthdays. They use to have one in KC but it closed a few years ago.
