Okay, I'm back!! I really don't like this not posting as often, but with working, My knitting projects are taking longer, and I'm a little tired. Oh well, enough grousing, I'm glad you decided to stop by and visit, so I apologize for grumbling right out of the bat. A few weekends ago, My DH and our good friends Tom and Kim went on a little trip. We went to Allen, Michigan.
It is suppose to be the "antique mecca" of Michigan. Well, we left early Friday morning, and found quite a few antique malls, but no real mecca!! We were kind of disappointed, but we did have a very, very fun day, very relaxing, and we did find a few treasures. We had a late lunch (something that is hard to do with 4 kids(they have 4 too) b/c they are always "starving" at 12:00!!! :) I just realized I didn't take a picture of some of my treasures, but I will. Then, after lunch, @ 2:30p.m. we ventured into another small town called Jonesville. Well, Jonesville has this store called Knit & Knacks. Need I say more!! We told the guys to take a nap and Kim and I walked into this store. We knew we were in big trouble the moment we opened the door. THis was a huge store, and she had yarn EVERYWHERE!!! :) Not messy, she had yarn in baskets, that were gorgeous, and I think every shade of Cascade 200 you can imagine. I don't think I'd ever seen half of these shades. It took us an hour(not kidding) just to "look around" then, we had to go back through, and decide what we were gonna buy. Oh man. I think Kim and I decided that a trip every Fall without the hubbies would be on the docket now!! THe lady there was very helpful, but left us alone to drool. I bought some Online sock yarn ( yeah I know, but I couldn't resist). I also bought some Cascade Cloud 9 in a beautiful red, for some fetchings (by Knitty) that I have long been drooling over. (I drool alot, don't I?) :) I also bought a skeing of Berroco Comfort. In a lovely Olive green color. I didn't buy too much, or anything too out there, I am always afraid I won't know what to do with it. If you are ever in Jonesville, Knit & Knacks is the place to go!! I had every intention of taking pictures, really I did, but the yarn!! The yarn!!
This is the beautiful Bed & Breakfast we stayed in that night!! We were in a room called the Shakespear Room, with a mini library.
I thought that was very fitting. It was a beautiful home, and the breakfast was very yummy!!
I have more to share, but alas, I need to get ready, so I can go teach my bible study this morning!! I will share more soon. BTW, Please pray for my brother and his family, he is in Suriname with 3 of their children on a mission trip (arrived late last night) and my SIL in home with the other 7. I don't know who needs more prayer :) so please remember all of them!! As usual, I love it when you stop by, please leave me a comment, I love that too!! Have a great week!
