Sisters in Tomah...

Hello everyone. I hope this post finds all of you doing great. The weather has changed from spring like temps last week to late fall temps this week. Brrrrr it is chilly.  You can now tell that winter is just around the corner.

To celebrate one of the last day of fall sunshine and the temps in the 70's my sister and I headed out to shop Tomah WI last Friday.  The drive there was just beautiful and the first stop we made was...Kwik Trip...LOL.  We got a little snack, used the bathroom, got something to drink and got all ready for the half block trip to The Market Place. Here is my sister on the porch...usually there is an awesome outhouse and wagon in the yard but they had just sold them a few days earlier so it looked kinda bare.

It was a great time there but alas even after dropping some dollars there we went to some other places. We were surprise at the other places in town that has Primitives...of course I got so excited that these were the last pictures I took.  We also went to Gatherings, Amish Country Corner, Country spirits and Tomah Cash Mercantile.  We then had a late lunch at the European Restaurant in Burnstad's Market.  It was a great time and we had a lot of laughs and just good sister talk.  On the way home we stopped in La Crosse and stopped at The Tree House. Here is some pictures of the things I got.
 A picture that was on sale for $10.00....SCORE!
 Billy Jacobs calendar that was 30% off...SCORE!
 Cute wooden ornaments...on sale for 25% off
 Two blocks I liked.
A cute snowman decoration. Everything was on sale so that is a good thing.  Of course the best part of the day was spending it with my sister.

Have a great day everyone!  Be blessed!

Swap with Michelle

Good morning everyone...October already, can you believe it?  We had a beautiful warm Sept. and the cooler air is coming in tomorrow. I have all my winter clothes ready and I think I will even need a jacket.

Thankfully Amy from Bumble Bee Lane hosted another swap for us. I am so happy that she does this and I thank you Amy from the bottom of my heart! I was paired with Michelle from Simple Pleasures. I got my envelope this time and was so happy to see all of the things inside. My sister was here when I was opening it and she couldn't believe it. Here is what I got.
 A bumble bee...thwo rag balls, a felted pumpkin and the bowl they are in and a crow croiss stitch.
 A leaf mat that is now on my table with a candle and some puka pods around it, a cute Autumn welcome sign and a bag that is so cute that I am pretty sure she made.
A primitive star mat in blue so it is  in my livingroom with c candle on it and the scarecrow plate.  See why my sister was amazed?  I also sent Michelle a package and I made sure my sister knew that too! LOL

Have a lovely fall day everyone, thanks again Amy and Michelle! Be blessed,
