Girls' Day Out

Every girl deserves a day out, right?  Well, yesterday was my day.  Joined by a like-minded friend, we first hit Miss Aimee B’s Tea Room in Midtown Saint Charles, MO for a delicious meal (lunch for her, breakfast for me), and then headed to Oma’s Barn in neighboring community, St. Peters, for an investigation.  Miss Aimee B’s is a fun place, and one that I have mentioned here before.  Quaint shops and yummy food make this a must see if you are passing through the area.  Two of their recipes I have shared in the past, one for Old Fashioned Buttermilk Coconut Pie and the other for the sensational Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler, the reason alone why I now love rhubarb.  We shared one after our meal today and it is always remarkably good. 
I had read about Oma’s about a year ago, and had wanted to go, but somehow just never got around to it. 
I’m sorry now that I hadn’t because it is a delightful place, filled to the rafters with wonderful home decor and gift items, linens and jewelry, quirky collectibles, and surrounded by flowers and garden supplies. 
As the name indicates, it is really an old, converted barn.  It’s also not air conditioned, so was a bit warm on this 94 degree day.  

That still did not deter us from examining every item, and making plans to return. 
It is open from March 1st until December 30th, and the d├ęcor changes with each season.  I know this is going to become one of my regular haunts and I can hardly wait to go back.

What a lovely day you had! Oh that rhubarb dessert -- I nearly crawled into the monitor to get it. :-) And Oma's Place looks like a treasure trove of EPIC scale. Such fun. Happy Summer! Cass
