A Dream come true!

Hello! I'm back with theee most exciting news for the year! at least for me and the family! We are going to be in The USA in July! Wooohooo! Yes I really am that excited!
We are planning to visit the Capital Region, North Virginia, Southern Pennsylvania and Maryland for two weeks.
This is where I would appreciate some information and advice, please. If anyone knows of the best, absolute MUST visit prim stores in these places could you please let me know (but not my husband or the kids:-)! As this is a once in a life time trip I need to make sure I buy the right kind of prim goodies to decorate with, in my hall, kitchen and family room. So in the opinion of all you talented ladies out there, What would you reckon I should buy? What are the five 'couldn't-do-without prims' for my home? Unfortunately I'm limited to a couple of suitcases and weight restrictions so sadly that rules out the hutches, dry sinks and jelly cupboards I sooo want!
Well if you can help, I'd be thrilled so look forward to hearing from you!

  2. Hi Christine, A road trip to the USA how exciting!! I live in Ohio so I don't know much about the stores in the states you will be visiting but this I'm sure this will help you http://www.countryregisteronline.com/maryland/index.html
    Just pick the state from the top and on the left click on "read the paper online" and it will give you lots of stores to choose from.
    BTW, I love the benches in your header!!
    Have a great prim day!

  3. Hi Christine...thanks for following my blog! It has been a bit neglected lately due to other interests, but will be updated soon...promise! I have had many holidays in the States, but have to say I loved Pennsylvannia best of all, when shopping for prims.....so many Amish & prim stores in that area, you will be spoilt for choice when deciding what to buy. If you are buying fabrics, as well as shopping in lovely little quilt stores, have a peek at the fabric in Walmart, they hae a great range of homespuns at prices to die for...hope you have a wonderful time!
