Three times a year my mom and I (and sometimes my sister) take a little trip to Lancaster County.
Every season is a delight! Spring = Flowers and Mud Sales, Summer = Flowers and Flea Markets,
Fall = hmmmm yep ~ Flowers and Christmas Sales.
Here's a little peak at our trip from this past weekend!
It's not just shopping we are there for.
We love driving around looking at all the Amish farmsteads.
And I was literally driving (very slowly) when I took the above two pictures!
Everyone farm is beautiful!

We fell in love with these sweeties at a favorite antiques shop.
Someone just dropped them off one day while the shop owners were away on a trip. Lucky for these barn kitties, the owners are animal lovers and kept the whole litter!
Isn't it lovely? There is so much character in old textiles.
Another weakness....transferware. These are from other shops in the area.
Look at those quail!
The flowers I bought were mostly spring bulbs, and this beauty:
She's called Winterberry 'Scarlet O'Hara'. If you buy one of these you need a male and female to get the berries. Aptly named 'Rhett Butler' goes nicely with her but any male Winterberry will do.
We also walk a little. You've got to work off all that good food somehow.
One of our favorite towns to walk is Strasburg, PA
Beautiful houses everywhere!
I love this time with my mom. We laugh a lot, eat a lot, and shop a lot! So many good times and memories we make.
Wishing you all a wonderful week. Hugs from me to you!
