Antiquing We Will Go

It is a family tradition for all of us sister's, nieces and of course our Mother to go Antiquing the day after Thanksgiving in a little town where they serve cookies and coffee by candle light in every shop. We decided a long time ago to avoid the overcrowded stores of the city for a quiet slow paced day of Antiques and specialty shops. Did I say quiet? Well, it was actually far from quiet with all of us girls.

We came upon a new shop in town that sold felted wool and hook rug patterns and everything else that Jenny Carter of Wonders of Whimsy is doing right now. It was so beautiful in there that we all walked out with something to work on. Somehow I was even signed up for a class! I know I will not have time for this. It must have been those chocolate chip cookies she had sitting out that sweetened me up.;) Here is a pic of a display in the store with all of these wool balls attached to everything. My sister Cris in red from Mommy's Midwest Mountain and I were so taken with these wool balls that we had to get a bag. Here we are dividing the balls below. You can imagine our laughter as we picked over these balls.

Like always, it was a very fun day and we were so sad to see it end.

Hope you all are having a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving weekend!
