Southerns Women's Show 2017 in Raleigh NC

I had the opportunity to attend the Southern Women's Show in Raleigh NC this year.  I have heard talk about it over the years, but I have never been.  I had a couple of free hours on the weekend of the event and decided to check it out.  If you go, you can find a few local and national celebrities, health related products, makeup, fashion, food, wine and the list goes on and on.  Here is a link that you can check out to decide if you want to attend next year.  
(The dates for next year are already up)
The Food...
Stony Mountain Vineyards in Albemarle NC.  Here is a quote from their site...
"Welcome to Stony Mountain Vineyards - a family-owned boutique winery dedicated to the passion of winemaking. Come have a glass of wine on our deck and share our panoramic view of the Uwharrie Mountains and the lower Yadkin Valley."

Rock of Ages Winery in Hurdle Mills NC.  Here is a quote from their site...
"Enjoy a unique and unforgettable experience at the Rock of Ages Winery. We designed the winery with in an Old English style with hints of Italian and Western lodge influences. This symphony of natural colors and textures is surrounded by 26 acres of vineyards and a four acre lake."

(I plan to visit both vineyards:-)

I could not for the life of me remember who was promoting the Amish Wedding products.  The few I tasted were good.  Here is a site that will give you locations to buy their products if you are interested.

Check out Diva Kakes for yummy cupcakes, cakes, and more...
The Shopping
I did not get to see as much as I wanted with my limited time. What I did see I liked.

Crown and Ivy at Belks.  The few times I have been at Belks I have noticed they do highlight Crown & Ivy.  They seem to have significant sales as well.  

Azuki Skye Jewelry.  Very pretty.  










The event was held at the State Fair Grounds in Raleigh NC
I loved the two ladies at the Total Life Changes booth. If you visit the site you will find Pinique's info at the upper right hand corner.
Docklands Design and Print Shop had some very nice regional art.  
They even had a few adoptable puppies at the event. I like the quote they displayed.
"Happiness is a warm puppy"
I only scratched the surface of the offerings of the Southern Women's Show.  It is an extensive list.  I think I will go back next year and spend a full day.  Maybe I will see you there.
I will leave you with a quote found at the show...
"Be the kind of person that you want to meet"
Happy Adventures,

A Visti to Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC

It has been a while since I have visited a new restaurant.  I did a google search and came up with Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC.  Sounded wonderful so I called Cindy and off we went on a restaurant adventure.  Here is a quote from their website.... "A refined take on traditional Southern cuisine. That's the essence of Rye Bar & Southern Kitchen, our onsite restaurant in the heart of Raleigh's vibrant downtown. Executive Chef Michael Rigot's seasonal menus feature the freshest, healthiest produce and meats, all from local North Carolina farms. A main dining room, private dining room, and outdoor patio provide an abundance of seating options. Craft beers, uncommon cocktails, and premium wines head the liquid refreshment line-up."
The restaurant itself is located in downtown Raleigh in Raleigh Marriott City Center. The Bar was lovely.  The night we were there it was packed.  Lively place to be. They brought this lovely platter to our table, they call i…

Winkler Bakery in Old Salem NC

WINKLER BAKERY521 SOUTH MAIN STREETConstructed 1800, restored 1968
One place Gale and I knew we had to visit was the bakery in Old Salem.  I have enjoyed the Moravian cookies over the years but everyone has told me I had to try the sugar cake.
Look at all the temptations....Yummy:-)


A bit of history....






The sugar cake was amazing.  We took it back to our room and enjoyed the yummy sweetness in front of the beautiful fireplace in our room.  We also shared a bottle of local wine.  What a lovely day:-)
Happy Travels Everyone! KathieyV:-)

Childress Vineyards in Lexington NC

There are a ton of wineries in NC.  Childress is one that Cindy and I had the opportunity to visit last Nov.  It is beautiful.

We signed up for the winery tour.  One of the first things they asked was "is there anyone here who has not heard the Childress name?"  I think Cindy and I were the only ones to raised a reluctant hand.  The inaudible gasps were deafening.  We soon learned he is a NASCAR guy and NASCAR is huge in NC.  Here is a quote from their site....

"By opening the doors to Childress Vineyards in 2004, NASCAR team owner Richard Childress fulfilled a longtime dream that grew from the days when he first began racing in California and visited wineries with friends. What began as camaraderie and good times soon became an engaging passion for world-class wines and then the vision to build a world-class winery."

We visited right before Christmas.  I loved the entry door.
Let the tour begin....
