Vintage

Thing 2 and I took a much needed break this weekend.  I think we hit every antique shop between home and Port Huron....plus the beach and riverwalk.


Love the old buildings in Port Huron.  


Love the beach more.  They had really upgraded this park - this is Lakeport - lots of streetlights, park benches, bathrooms and new play areas.  We've been coming here since the boys were little.  We had a nice break on Saturday, just sitting on the benches, watching the waves, swimmers, sailboats and freighters.


Made me happy.  Sam got a little too happy with the camera though.


We also spent time on the Thomas Edison Parkway.  That's the bridge to Canada, and you can see a warehouse across the river.  The ship was carrying wind turbines, we think.  


Our favorite diner, Powers, was open again.


Sam, dreaming of cheeseburgers.


We hit so many antique shops.  Sam is always looking for vintage fountain pens - there were none, until we got to the very last one, right before we decided to call it a weekend and go home!  And it was a good one - rare, and only $9.  This was all I got - 


Another vintage laundry bag to hang in my laundry room.  LOVE it.

It was so relaxing to get away, stay in a lovely hotel, and eat out.  Although I couldn't eat much, due to my jaw - still, scrambled eggs taste better when someone else makes them!  

Back home now, and the first project for the October Applique Club is complete.


Hm, that's too bright - I'll have to get some better pics.  Quilting up another today.

One final pic.....



I hope you're all having a great week!  See you soon!

Love,
Allie

I love to read about you having a good time, Allie. And I have to say what great hair you have! So beautiful and thick. A neat little embroidery there on that bag. Wonderful applique too.

Love, love, love the squirrels and acorns! I have a friend that would be perfect for. About the only thing my son and I ever do is errands and he takes me to the doctor. lol
