Everything Homespun

 With all the excitement around here as of late, I forgot to post about this sweet place in Wisconsin
called Everything Homespun.  I found it on an ad on Facebook, and the location sounded familiar.
We head up to Wisconsin often, we are only a hour or so from the state line, and my honey loves to drive to relax...So up we went. (This was weeks ago, I am a little tardy in my posting;-)
 So many lovely things primitives, farmhouse and vintage all set in lovely vignettes. I love how the sun was shining through the boards.
 A friendly atmosphere with a popcorn machine, coffee pot and cool drinks.  Even the powder room was pretty!

 What a guy! Papa is what the sweet p. calls Grandpa. To hear her say it, makes him turn to mush.
 So much to see, reasonable prices, many beautiful handmade items.
 Cozy corners chock full of pretty things.
 The outside was sweet too.
 This out building was filled with architectural items, doors and windows...Oh my the treasures!
This bunting, small flags with just one seam sewn becomes a pendant garland. What a great idea.
Oh the temptations....  but all that came home with me was this sweet hobnail vase.  Perfect for a beautiful hydrangea. Can't wait to go again in the Autumn on a cool crisp day.  A cozy destination, and a beautiful ride in the country...a perfect combination.

All is well at English Valley Hospital.  The patient, son Michael, recovering from a tonsillectomy, is in good spirits in spite of the constant pain and discomfort.  He is HUNGRY, and more than a little tired of all the soft things he is able to swallow comfortably. We are staying close to home, I hope to be a comfort to him. ;-)  I am enjoying the time I have to nurse him back to health.  What a special guy he is, and so grateful for our help. I love caring for my family, nothing gives me more satisfaction.  Important work, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by and for all your kind comments.  I so appreciate your friendship.
Enjoy this beautiful day.

What a cute shop, Penny! You always find the coolest places. Love the hobnail vase. Glad to hear Michael is doing OK. I totally agree with you that taking care of our families and homes is the most important work.
