'Primland' Part 2 & LOTS of photos!
Thanks to each of you for such lovely comments on my last post - I truly hope you enjoy sharing this part of our trip in Primland even more, as I show you a few of the places we visited.
Being among the Amish is so amazing for us - I love learning about their way of life, and to see it in action is a dream come true for me!Can you imagine doing all that washing by hand?
Well as our time in Pennsylvania was short, we set out early to find some prim stores and the first one nearest our B&B was in Strasburg. Country Creations is over three floors and the furniture is absolutely gorgeous as are these quilts~I wanted to fit this in my suitcase sooooo badly!!
But I had to leave it behind and we drove to Hershey's World of Chocolate for the children but the adults were just as keen to taste it! Later we drove through Manheim and into Lititz, a really picturesque town. On Main street there are lovely shops and here are some of the ones I visited~ Much to my dismay, Sue's Back porch was closed - a peek through the window and I could tell it was a wonderful prim shop. The front window display was an Americana delight!
Here's what the dry goods store had for an entrance display - getting in the mood for fall!
And here I am wandering up and down all those rows of fabric totally mesmerized by the selection!Here's another display in their store;I was chuffed to bits to find antique spools and here's how I've displayed them for now~Hope you are glad you stopped by!
Looking through these pics has only made me wish I was back again!
But I'm so thankful I have a patient, kind hubby and I thank him again for giving me this trip of a lifetime!
See you all again soon
