Going to Mecca
In the little town of Benzonia, there is a darling artist-owned gift shop called Mecca. This little house is filled with paper butterflies, glitter trophies and hand-crafted cake toppers. I make the trip to this shop at least twice a year and stay more than an hour each time soaking up the scene. One area of the store has an ever-changing collection of antique bottles. I found this wonderful blue "ear of corn" bottle and had to have it. The glass is designed to show individual kernels of corn and has "old fashion maize concoction" stamped in the glass. I keep it by the kitchen sink filled with flowers. Love it!
