sharing summer memories...

 The summer seems long gone but as you can see, I'm just getting around to posting some summer memories now that we're quickly approaching autumn!

We had a wonderful vacation to New England and stopped in Newport RI to see the Breakers an amazing 'summer cottage' built by the Vanderbilts.  Newport is lovely but the prim shops were in short supply however when travelling through CT we stopped in Old Saybrook and had to visit Home At Last a great store filled with furniture and wonderful handmades.

 We drove down to Amish country for a very quick visit and the scenery never disappoints as well as the prim shopping!

 I am already dreaming of visiting again!!!

But for now it's back to settling into a new school year and lots of challenges.  I think I'm  going to have to skip fall crafting as I've signed up for a Christmas craft fair and have started sewing Santas etc!

Until next time,
God bless
