Well, I have returned from what could quite possibly be one of the best weeks of my life. Honestly, there is something about seeing friends that you have known for, in some cases 25 years, in some cases, even more. I was once again reminded that you don't have to see someone every day, or every week for that matter to share a special friendship - the sort where when you see each other after many many years, it is as if no time has passed at all. It really is nothing short of amazing, and I feel nearly teary thinking about how the time, as short as it was, was so incredibly precious, not to mention outstandingly fun!
While I was back in Minnesota, I was able to spend five hours wandering the streets of Oronoco, as it was their annual town-wide vintage sale. I am not sure heaven really encompasses the feeling, but it is a good start. I found so many fabulous treasures, the best one being my time spent with Jill of Forever Cottage, whom of course I didn't take one photo of... Visit her blog - you will see photos of her there!
A couple of the treasures above were found at the Hot Blogust Nights event the evening before I left. Some were found when my dad - yes, my wonderful dad of massage fame, took me shopping one afternoon. The rest were found in Oronoco. Ah, Oronoco... I have two words for next year. Panel Truck. 'nuff said.
I am hoping to have my shop open again by the end of the week, but I want to get a few things done first, and I have a few custom orders that I need to finish before opening again.
Have a fabulous week,
