Weekend Adventure

I got up to Amish Country again Saturday. Me, the hubby, the kids and Mom. My Mom enjoys going with us and getting out of her apartment. She has always had her own place but downsized to a small apartment last year.  She complains that it does not have enough windows and with all this hot weather we have been having here and her air conditioner running all the time she has been feeling closed in. 
We took the back roads and it was a beautiful day. Lots of Amish farmers hauling and making hay. Wouldn't you know I forgot to bring my camera. Forgetful............isn't that a sign of old age?????
Besides getting an awesome meal (We ate at Grandma's Homestead Restaurant in Charm, Ohio), we also went to a few of the craft malls around Berlin, Ohio. We went to see if we could set up a booth to sale some of the hubby's wooden wares!

Thought I would show some of the goodies picked up along the way:

 This sign was to go over the living room window but it looked too busy there so I placed it over the front entrance door.

 I got this strainer at a craft mall which had a few booths that had some antiques in them.

I found this Rockingham sponge bowl at the Berlin Antique Mall next to the Berlin Craft Mall. I already have one but had to have another. 
Love this ware!

Found this roll top bread box at the Sol's Exchange Craft Mall for around $16.00. Love it and thinking about distressing it more. Don't know if I will keep or resell???

.......and last I had to get a picture of Louie who happened to be looking cute , so I snapped a shot!  He did not come from Amish Country!!!! We have had him for I believe 3 years now. He came from a  home where his owners abandoned him. He has quite the personality and thinks he is the King of our home!!!

Have a Beautiful Week
