Signage on Butler Street. I drove by but no red light to take a safe pic. Pulled into lot and got out of car on my way home.
Dragonfly Castle Toys‘ motto is No batteries, no screens, pure fun.
I went shopping at the toy store on Friday before I went to Clarissa Boutique.
The proprietor Nan told me her store is in one of the oldest buildings in the city of Pittsburgh. Built in the 1840’s. She and her husband, along with an architect, have done a ton of work to make it a beautiful place.
It’s located at 4747 Butler Street in Lawrenceville hours listed below. And you can shop online.
I was happy to find Rhodia notebooks and stationery from Florence in addition to potholder loops, a moon puzzle and some surprise stocking stuffers for future gift giving for the grandchildren. There’s something for every age, including adults.
Supporting small local business is a good thing.

I drove to the South Side to buy buttons for a sweater. I discovered that Clarissa Boutique and Parker Button moved to 4603 Butler Street in Lawrenceville. “Your Exclusive Bridal & Wedding Accessory Destination!”
Jean and Gretchen welcomed me and remembered the blog post from 2011- Button Button Whose Got the Button?
Ten years ago, Laura got her bridal veil from the boutique for her wedding. It is a lovely store.
Need a landmark to locate them? They are located next door to the French Bakery La Gourmandine.
How about that Capodimonte lamp? A perfect home for the family heirloom of Gretchen’s family with the romantic porcelain couple in the beautiful bridal boutique.
I was parked on Butler Street in Lawrenceville.
My phone in hand.
A truck pulled up to the red light alongside my car -and stopped. I felt a presence. Looked up and out the driver’s window.
Oh, hello there!
Light turned green. The chef appeared. The truck pulled away into the flow of traffic.
Guess it’s finally a Six Word Saturday for me
Delicious lunch at The Vandal Lawrenceville
Fresh mint lemonade. Greens on the side, fried chicken, chili honey, topped with carrot slaw on a brioche roll.

I’ve been away for awhile. My friend B said “let’s go to NatuRoll Creamery –get rolled ice cream in Lawrenceville. There’s always a line” (which is a good sign).
Turns out it didn’t open until three. So we had a delicious lunch at VANDAL first, waiting for three o’clock to roll around.
Kaden took our orders and $. Two Spring Specials -Blueberry Lemon on a Vanilla Base.
Abby made mine.
Then she added them lemon zest
and a slice of lemon
The focus is on Abby. Takes 2-5 minutes to create each fancy finished special.
