Dresden & Amish Country Getaway!


On Sunday evening my mom and Aunt Patty came to visit. On Monday morning the 3 of us packed up the car and headed to the Longaberger Homestead. The tulips greeted us!

The weather was chilly with light rain....except for the downpour that turned my umbrella inside out!

This huge basket was so cool...the apples looked so real in person...Did you know Longaberger's office building is shaped like a basket with handles?

I met this furry friend while touring the rooms of the Homestead. They have so many pretty things.

At 5:00 (when everything closed) we headed north to Amish Country. Home to some of the yummiest restaurants EVER! These hats and coats belonged to Amish men who were dining.

My mom and aunt love the fabric stores...I imagine they feel the same way I do when I get to go to Archivers!

My mom is making me this Scotty wall hanging...except she is using Christmas fabrics. We spent Monday and Tuesday nights at a hotel and headed home Wednesday evening. I was tired! I curled up on the couch with Manga Dork to watch American Idol...we munched kettle korn...and I held her when she cried over the results. We will miss you Anoop!

So jealous. That would be so much fun Scrappy. How do you get away with so much fun stuff. You rock. Even in Amish country.

I've always wanted to go there. It looks so cool. I've collected Longaberger for years, someday.
