Since it is Spring Break for our grands, and we had a few days free from baby sitting, Adolph and I were able to get away for a couple of days. We decided to go antiquing. There are several antique shops within two to three hours of home that we like to visit.
On Thursday we met friends for lunch (who moved a couple of hours north of us) and visited their new home. We also had time to briefly visit a great antique mall before finding our hotel, eating dinner and getting some rest.
On Friday we got an early start, and after breakfast, we headed to a new primitive shop that recently opened in Mount Dora. It is called When Pigs Fly and it is awesome. Check out their blog. Next, we went back to the antique mall, where I found a couple of goodies. We spent the rest of the day going from shop to shop, doing a lot of looking. We didn’t find as much this time to bring home, but it was fun to look and hubby and I enjoyed the time we spent together.
I have been looking for cotton grain/feed sacks for several months and on Friday I found my first one. I have been able to find some made of burlap, but not the ones made out of cotton fabric. I plan to make a throw pillow for the guest room. We also found a bread board, a cutting board, and a small basket.
It is always fun to get away, but then we have to come home and get back to life as usual. I plan to clean up my new window and get started on my project this weekend. Then on Sunday we will celebrate a special birthday.
I hope you all have a blessed weekend,
