'Anvers Antics'

I know it has been a week since we went to Anvers, but I really had to show you these pics!

Here is a pic of Anvers...... they make the most divine truffles! You can actually watch them getting made through the glass windows inside the restaurant! I have been there for lunch a few times and I must say it was DELICIOUS!!

The Chocolate Testing Centre..... Of course we made a be-line there! They had many truffles to test taste and I came home with a box of mixed truffles (which I have just remembered about!) and some white chocolate raspberries YUMMO!!


Inside the restaurant, they had lots of chocolate memorabilia.....


Gorgeous gardens! Such a tranquil place to sit and have a coffee (and chocolate too!):


Here is Mum, Me and Kate in the Gazebo...... I really like this pic taken by Roseanne!


Hmmmm check out this 12year old......


Hold on Kate, I know how Roseanne drives! LOL


And, you cant go to Latrobe without visiting RELIQUARE!! This place is totally AMAZING! I sneaked this pic (you are not allowed - naughty naughty!). It is FULL to the brim of great stuff..... Cartoon Characters, Porcelain Dolls, Jewelery, Soaps, Kids Games..... a bit of everything!


I do know a lot of people can not go in there as it is just too cluttered, but I love it!!
Our visitors have now all gone back home and we have nearly got everything in some sort of order! lol
Ok, that's it for me tonight! I hope you all have enjoyed your weekend!
I will be back soon with a finish!!

Now, Anvers is fantastic and their truffles are wonderful. Reliquaire gives me the heeby jeebies - can't bear the eyes staring at you wherever you go - dolls everywhere. Sarah can't believe it :D

Looks like you all had a fun time together! Did you visit Wells and Picture Patchwork too?

As a resident of Devonport, you visited some of my favourite places for ladies afternoons out. Reliquaire is amazing isn't it? They once had a life size doll that looked just like my late nan.
