Sometimes my blog posts just fall into my lap. I mean really, as a candy lover, could I make up anything more interesting to show you? Not a chance.
I was in Aunt Millie's Candy Shop in the Davis Mercantile (same building as the Lolly's Fabrics) in Shipshewana when I saw him. A beautiful statue of a Native American man wearing a full headdress of feather lollipops. It was as beautiful as it was unexpected. I was so taken with the overall effect of the display that I didn't buy a handful of feathers.
What was I thinking? They would look so beautiful grouped on a Thanksgiving buffet. Or as a treat for kids who didn't want pumpkin pie? I did include a link (click "feather lollipops" above) where you can buy an entire box of them online. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? If you want to split a box, let me know!
