Yesterday the bows and wreath went up on the Hellman and the Old Bank. This morning, garland was beginning to trim the windows on the Old Bank. It's Christmastime again, at least at 4th & Main..

Another Blue Cupcake..

DASH for cupcakes
The DASH reflected in the display case at Lot 44 on Spring Street.

This blog is really looking like "Meeko on Cupcakes" rather than a neighborhood blog.. but here I am enjoying some Fall yumminess and figured it was time to give Lot 44 & Blue Cupcake another writeup.. yeah.. it's Pumpkin time!
