A Garden Tea in July

Sandy Hohf of Sweet Notions makes some of the best desserts I've ever had. I'm super lucky that she's Vanessa's mom, because when I'm in town..there's usually always something to taste test at her house! From chocolate mascarpone cakes to macarons, she really can make it all. She can make it all REALLY well. Sandy sells her baked goods at our market each year, and usually sells out! She'll be at all of our Montana markets this summer, with the addition of a garden tea!

Vintage Whites is an outdoor market in Somers, Montana that has a view of the mountains and is only a short walk from the shore of Flathead Lake. Could the location get any better?? Montana absolutely has my heart. Imagine looking at all of that beauty while sitting at a cute vintage bistro table. Imagine being served ice cold tea, sweet & savory treats, and listening to the music of Flannel Graph.  Sounds heavenly right? Sweet Notions would love for you to make reservations beforehand, but they'll also serve you if you decide you'd like to join in while you're shopping. Here are some more details about the tea, including the menu! Oh...the menu! Mmm! To make a reservation, please email -- see you in 2 weeks!!

  1. This looks so cute and tasty - I wish I lived in Montana! We need a Vintage Whites Market to come to Seattle area! :)

  2. Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

    Sri Gita Govinda
    -A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

    Govinda Lilamrta
    -An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu
    -This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

    Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

    Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have the supreme scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:
