Weekend happenings

This past weekend was very nice because got to go to a stamp convention in Rhinebeck, NY.  It's a small one but did find 2 out of 3 things I was looking for being a set of the new Ranger Ink seasonal Distress ink pads and Tim Holtz reflections stamp set so that made the two hour ride there worth it.  I also got to meet up with a friend I haven't seen in weeks that is always a good thing.  Took a couple of pictures at Stampers Anonymous booth of Studio 490-wendy vecchi samples.  I like her style especially the vintage feel and color.  Spent about an hour there then said good bye to my friend. 

Then my husband and I continued on to drive to Amish country in PA. which took over three hours.  We didn't think it would be that far away so needless to say we stayed over night.  It is such pretty country there and the feel of old days seeing all the farms.  The horse and buggies driving down the road with the cars is such a surreal feeling.  The weather was just and clear.  The only bad thing was by the time we got there it was around supper time and we were tired from all the driving so we stayed in and planned to go to all the shops and things next day.  Good plan but it was sunday and most all the shops had signs saying: no sunday sales.  I was disappointed because I had wanted to maybe pick up an Amish quilt but we did find the Intercourse Canning Company (yes, that's the name of the store) open so we bought jars of jam, pickled beets and vanilla peaches....yum!  I'm sure you have guessed by now it was named Intercourse because it is in Intercourse, PA.  Good store with lots of jams, pickled eggs and more to try while you walk around the store.  All in all a good weekend.
