This is a charm. It's adorable, turquoise and it's from Tiffany's. YES PLEASE. Oh - except it's $240.
Find it here Tiffany&Co

My main reason for today's escapade was to check out Lee's Donuts at Granville Island Market. I had never heard of it until I mentioned my doughnut tour to a few people. Google it and you'll find many great reviews. Lee's offers a good variety of flavors so I chose a glazed and a peanut. Oh so fresh. Melt in your mouth is how I choose to describe it. Unfortunately I don't have a picture because I ate them too fast.
Another shop worthy of honorable mention is Duffins. Originally they held the #1 spot for doughnuts on my list but that was before I found Honey's :) At Duffins you will find a mix of Chinese fast food, torta subs and doughnuts. It is also open 24/7.Next came Seattle! Primarily a shopping trip but I did get one doughnut shop into it. I had three on my list but time did not allow and I've already had a Krispy Kreme anyway. (So good) The one stop was at Top Pot Doughnuts on 5th Avenue. I must say I was disappointed here. We bought a dozen which was quite pricey but we wanted to try as many as we could - actually I think I was the only one by this point that wanted anything to do with doughnuts! They looked good but did not taste fresh. The only one I enjoyed was the Apple Fritter so I highly recommend that one. Plain glazed was a let down. Perhaps I need to try them a different time?
By this time I was done....no more ...stomach can't take it. But then I saw the mini doughnut stand in Pike Place Market. Cute machinery - very greasy.
