Hi everyone and thanks for dropping by. Slowly we are getting back to normal and managing to keep our eyes open for more than an hour at a time! It all seems like a dream except now I have some new goodies to remind me of a wonderful trip. It was so hard trying to select things that would fit in my luggage, but when I saw this little Americana basket that is handmade in Lancaster County, I knew it was the one for me!
One of the other 'must haves' on my shopping list was some treenware. I also bought vanilla hazelnut scented rosehips to put in it and the braided mat - I love the colors in it.
Believe it or not, the tin punched tart-warmer is my first one. I love the glow from it, just can't seem to capture this on camera.
This is a pic of all my goodies. I also love the wool felt pillow. It might just inspire me to create some designs of my own. I got quite a nice stash of homespun fabrics and have ideas for making some pillows and quilted wall hangings with them.
Amazingly, I even managed to bring some Polish pottery home safely! Anything with stars and stripes and I love it! Looks so cheery on the shelf in the kitchen.
I did pretty well and I better pay tribute to my DH for his patience in taking me around the stores and keeping 3 bored children amused elsewhere while I shopped!
I know I'll have so much fun finding places for all this stuff!
Have a wonderful weekend,
