Everything That's Old

Livelihood Cafe, Ashley River Rd, Charleston, S.C.
I don't know if these items originated in Charleston but I took the picture locally and that serves our purpose for this evening. I did go to work today and without meetings and non-stop phone ringing I was able to get some things done. I did however slip out for a late lunch with my friend Rebecca at the Livelihood Cafe on Ashley River Rd. We snooped around and this little scrap of embroidery on the wall caught my eye. 

The other item we were curious enough to ask about was this scythe hanging over the door. The owner said she had bought it on Johns Island. Googling around I discovered it is a Wheat Cradle Scythe. I even found a blog and video of the scythe in action.

A scythe really isn't the sort of decoration you expect in a shop!

Looks like just the sort of cafe that I'd enjoy... and Rebecca has a lovely smile!

Joan, am I not old enough to be included?

It made me look twice and then we had such an interesting conversation with the owner.

I think you'd like her!

I think we count as young old friends, eh? :)
