Happy Thanksgiving!

This is an older fall picture for you to see and visit again. I hope you
had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends!
Hopefully I’ll be back to show you what I’ve been working on and
haven’t finished yet! I’ve been really busy plus watching kids.

decorated with ornaments.
Thanks for stopping by!

Part Two of Vermont

Hi everyone, Happy Veteran’s Day!
I think I left off on my last post when we were visiting Stowe Mt. After that
we went to Ben & Jerry’s where we took a tour of the factory ate ice cr√®me
and watched and listened to an employee tell about how it all started. It was
very interesting!

I couldn’t tell if this was chalkpaint or not but I thought it was pretty neat, we
were at a restaurant in Burlington, Vt. and all the doors were like this.

Hubs and me with the Green Mountains in the
background.

After saying good bye to our relatives we took a ferry and
crossed Lake Champlain, it took about 30 minutes.

They frown on having docks on the lakes so they have boat
houses instead that you can see on the left. We took the
scenic route home which was beautiful!

Hope you enjoyed seeing Vermont, I loved all the scenery…it is a very beautiful state!
I still wish I could have brought their Good Will home with me.LOL
I’m also working on something, I have it all primed but today it turned to cold to
work on maybe in my next post I’ll give you a peek at what I’m working on!

Home from Vermont



We are home and what a great trip we had, we drove to Burlington,  Vermont and had Buster with us who
travels well, he likes the car so it was easy having him in the back seat!
They told us we missed the peak of the leaves by a week but it couldn’t be helped because we
were going there for my sister-in-law’s surprise birthday and didn’t have a choice.
I did take pictures with my iPhone as much as I could plus tried to see the sights myself, so
here we go:
This is across from our nieces house where we stayed, notice all the evergreens!

Another home to the right of her place!

It seemed like a lot of people decorated around their mailboxes
on this street!

I was pretty amazed at the look of this Goodwill… a lot of people there too, I scooped up
some Halloween decorations they looked brand new, they had everything! As you can
see Burlington is a really nice place. I asked where their Target was and they told me they
don’t have them there because on there businesses the signs are to be very small no big blingy ones
high up in the air, so Target said “no way” I was a little disappointed!  I saw a Lowe’s sign and
if I hadn’t really looked I would have never seen it, it was really strange oh, and you should
have seen McDonald’s arches,  they were maybe as high as my shoulder!

Saturday  night was surprise party so during the day we drove to Stowe Mountains,
you can see the neat General Store they had, but expensive!
