mini roadtrip





The other week we decided to take a mini road trip through Hanover and onto the the Lancaster area of Pennsylvania. We stopped in at the Utz shop in Hanover, some antique malls, and a place that makes things like peanut butter & jelly cinnamon rolls. In the end my only purchase from antique places were these little Alice ornaments, but I am very happy to have found them.

Book Club

I am part of a book club that rotates giving each member a chance to pick a book and host a meeting. During my meeting I decided we could ready anything from The Paper Magician series. I loved these books and knew the newest book The Plastic Magician was coming out before my bookclub meeting and meant I could read that one.
We had a good time with lots of treats to eat, and general book discussion. I can’t wait for the next meeting as it is one of my favorite things to sit around and talk about books with other people face to face.

Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Fabric Sale







Back in May as I do every year I attended the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Fabric Sale. This one was in a new location that apparently was secured rather quickly after the sale of their previous spot. Things were a little more crowded then usual in this set up, and I probably purchased the least amount of stuff I ever have. I still had lots of fun looking through goodies, and I am in no danger of running out of craft supplies as is it, but I still managed to come away with some treasure pictured above. My best buy was the two vintage dress forms for $5 each. Now on display in my living room.
