Flea Market

Here are the promised pics of my recent trip to Shipshewana, largest flea market of the Midwest, in the heart of Amish Country.
Well, it was huge and quite interesting and also a bit disappointing, because many stalls displayed items you can purchase in a Discount Store or were pure junk.
But I got to meet my friends that I have not seen in so many years and got to spend the day with them. 
We already made plans to meet again next year.

Now there is also the world's longest yard sale, which stretches 690 miles from Michigan to Alabama and gets featured each year on the HGTV channel. But when you read the reviews, lots of junk there, too.

But I guess it is all the hunt to find that special piece you did not know you were looking for and that makes it all worth your while.

I am looking forward to reading a book that was recommended to me by one of our Instructors.

Have a great week ahead!

It's time for another giveaway.

 Paola Zakimi from Argentina.

The print is signed by the artist.

The drawing will be on Sunday, November 4th.

Just leave me a comment on this post and your name will be entered in the drawing.

Good luck! :)

Have a great rest of the week!

 Hazelnutcream Torte
 Cherry Cheese Cake
 The Ladies
 The place
 The Art

 The Bread

Oh happy day ~

Look what I discovered

A wonderful place called Brotgarten at the Perk Up Cafe 

Finally I can buy some good german bread and pastries not too far from where I live.

We went there for Kaffeeklatsch (=gossip over cups of coffee,"  from Ger., from kaffee "coffee" + klatsch "gossip) this past Sunday and the Hazelnutcream Torte and the Cheese Cake were so delicious.

Beautiful local art is displayed throughout this cozy place, it is just so warm and inviting.
What a great place with an amazing atmosphere and dog friendly, too.
Will take Gracie and Lucy there next time.
