We drove by the Allegheny Cemetery entrance on Butler St in Lawrenceville. We drove back to catch the sign she’d seen.

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.
After dinner, Steve drove me by Row House Cinema on Butler Street. I tried to get a couple of panoramas so that’s why the passing cars looked chopped up.iPhone shots tonight.

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.
You know how I like dessert. It’s a double guest blog today.
Necessity! I purposefully left my cell phone home so I could be present in the moment during a special luncheon Wednesday afternoon.
Steve and I were invited next door for a delicious lunch to welcome our new neighbors to the neighborhood.
Dessert was this stunning and mouthwatering Lemon Tart from the French bakery on Butler Street in Lawrenceville La Gourmandine
The first photo by Madison who said “The simple things in life are the sweetest.”
and then when my slice of the delectable tart on the beautiful blue and white china plate was set in front of me, I definitely needed another photo. (Thank you Joaquin)
No way to adequately describe the simultaneous sweet and tart combination as it glides over your tongue. Perfection!
Hambone’s Saturday Night-Lawrenceville neighborhood on Butler Street.
Steve said, come on let’s go -so I put my book down and layered up in warm clothes and we headed down. Ordered a draft. Settled into a booth and listened to some great musicians take the chill off the almost winter night.
Christopher Mark Jones and the Roots Ensemble
Vince Camut on pedal steel
Mark Perna on Bass
Eric Kurtzrock on drums and vocals
And joined by Mr. Marc Reisman on harps in the third and final set
We ran into Mr. And Mrs. Claus on the sidewalk in front of Hambone’s as we went to our cars
Meet Janice Schuler. Artist. Today there was an Artist’s Studio Tour in Lawrenceville. Her painting studio is in the basement of this repurposed church and was number one on the tour. I’d met Janice last night at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and she invited me to visit her studio during the Studio Tour. There was wine and beer, bottles of water and cheese and crackers and a tray of sweets, too. Other artists studios were open as well but I sat in a comfortable chair in Janice’s studio and watched people come and go as we talked.

There are several artist’s studios in this church- architects, fiber artist. photographers and painters.
