Lots of pretty cups and saucers:
I don't normally buy cups and saucers unless they are a really good deal (or Christmas themed). I usually stick to buying tea trios, but unfortunately I didn't see any this trip.
I saw these beautiful depression glass dessert glasses:
I just love depression glass in pastel colors!
Next we went to old town Warrenton, where we walked up to the local town museum. As many times as we've been to Warrenton, we had never gone in the museum before.

We also made a stop in the kitchen of the buildings (the old jail only served for a brief period--it was later converted into a home and a newer jail was built behind the building. Interestingly, each of the jails only had 2 rooms each to house the incarcerated). Do you see the kettle on the arm so that it could be set over the fire to boil?
There was a small little gift shop in the front entrance of the jail. I was immediately drawn to the lavender products, including tea, from a local lavender farm.
We walked back up the hill towards the little town to stop at my favorite Irish Pub for lunch, passing the court buildings on the way.

This is a statute of John Marshall, the fourth and longest serving Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, serving from 1801 to 1835, who was born in Fauquier County, Virginia (Warrenton is the seat of Fauquier County). As another fun trivia fact, John Marshall and I share the same Alma Mater.
