My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..
What a great day I had today.. because a couple days ago when it was so ugly outside I called up two Charming chick friends April & Mary Gail and insisted we take a trip today (come rain or shine..) to Merril to a fabric store there. April has been taking quilting classes there so I knew she would be game.. I wanted to get some fabric to use on a project I have in mind.( embroidery red work) and making it a pillow center. I will post when I get it together... So back to my story. We went to a really neat shop " The Country Cork Collectibles,"I had never been to but they had. WOW did I score on a small 50"x 60" throw quilt or wall hanging ( I have not decided yet what to do with it) Couldn't pass it up and sure couldn't make it for the price of only $ 79. What do you think? Yes, I had to haved it! Then we went to another of our favorite shops "Simplier Times" and a cute chicken feed tin sign caught my attention .. A great one to hang on the exterior wall of my chicken studio. A fabulous find for $8 Don't ya think the coop will look cute too...? After this great adventure we headed downtown for a bite to eat for lunch where I had the best panni wrap... A place I also had not been .. "The Mermaid Garden Cafe" I will be reproducing that recipe on my cooking site tomorrow for all to see.
To wrap up the story here it was like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow for me as I looked outside saw a patch of Blue sky peaking through the clouds hanging over April & Mary Gails way & quickly I drove the 15 miles to enjoy a good time with two great Chick sisters. Wouldn't you like to come with us next time..... We do have some adventures planned... I will share those details as they develope too. Now I must have a cuppa tea and reflect back on my great day. It was indeed my Lucky day... Do Come visit again soon..
