Well, the end of our time here in CT is coming to an end ~
a bittersweet time for us...
hate to leave my our hometown and family....
the anticipation of going home is always the sweet part.
Here are a few snaps that Hannah took for me when we were at The Country Mill on Friday last ~
|Linda Manna's picture-perfect shop|
|the porch of my dreams|
|a beautiful welcome to Linda's shop through her beloved little garden|
|ok ~ so compared to Linda, I am a giant. I have to bend down to give here a squeeze,|
but a hug from my sweet friend is well worth the effort!!
|Linda prepared a wonderful spread for us with teas, lemonades ~ fruit salad and sweet treats :)|
|here I am!|
|Linda carries many primitive/colonial/country decor items in her shop,|
and she has always been true to her beloved community by sharing local artisans wares ~
|I could have moved into this cubby/pantry filled with needful things ~|
|be still my heart ~|
|candles, lamps, textiles...pillows soaps and all kinds of good things!|
|Linda behind her shop's front counter ~|
|signing one of my books for a friend ~ notice that Linda also carries beautiful jewelry too!!|
I am fortunate to have Linda as a true friend ~
her hospitality and personality are beyond sweet & I cherish her friendship.
If you get a chance to visit her in beautiful, historic Newton/Sandy Hook Connecticut,
please do ~ and tell her I sent ya!
|pardon the knobby knees please ;)|
Hannah & I will be leaving CT on Tuesday ~
heading back home to Virginia where my true love waits for me...
and my kittens. and puppy....
sheep, peacock ~ guinea hens.
* Blessed be *
