A Rainy Weekend Spent in Amish Country

Well, you all are in for a treat this coming week.  I just got home about 4 hours ago from visiting my parents for the weekend.  It was a dreary and rainy weekend, but the time we spent with my parents made it seem like it was sunny all day long minus the rain of course.  We have been going to visit alot lately and this will probably be the last visit for about 4 weeks so we made it a good one.  We celebrated my Dad’s 64th Birthday on Friday, we went to Amish Country on Saturday and today we came home.  It was a great couple days!!  My DH made chicken fajitas on Saturday and I made my famous strawberry cake for my Dad’s birthday.  They absolutely loved the cake and both Mom and Dad were just so anxious to try the cookies that I made.  Yep, we left there leaving them with happy bellies (lol).

I have so many wonderful pictures to share with you and some very exciting news for all of you.  Ok, I won’t delay it anymore…. the exciting news is that I am going to share with you pictures of my Mom and Dad’s home over the next couple of days.  Alot of you have said that my Mom does a wonderful job decorating and you love the pictures that I have shown you before so I thought I would share alot more of their home with you.  So, be keeping an eye out for a post of my Mom’s home over the next couple days.  I will be sharing the pictures in probably 2 or 3 posts so there will be plenty to look at and trust me….. it is great prim eye candy!!

Without further delay here are some pictures that were taken over the last couple days.  Oh- you even get to see my Dad.  So, who do you think I look like most?  Mom or Dad?

Told you I had lots of pictures and that isn’t even close to 3/4 of the pictures (lol).  Are you ready to see some of the goodies that I found in Amish Country?  I also wanted to show you some more stuff that my Mom gave me, but I will just show you my Amish finds first.  Ok, let’s take a look – are you with me?


I loved the old Remington box that I found.  I thought it would look neat with a tree in it at Christmas time and the old crock just caught my eye immediately.  I love both of these finds!  ~Thanks Mom ~


I also got another spoon holder since I am out of room on my other one.  I will be re-finishing it when time permits.  Don’t you love my old sifter?  Mom gave me the little towel and well I simply love it.  That is pretty much it for today, but keep your eyes out for tomorrow’s post.  I have so much more to share and show you, but I have run out of time for today.

Until Next Time my Prim Friends!!

Oooh, I can't wait to see pictures of your mom's. What a blessing that you are both so much alike.
I think you look a lot like your mom but you do have some of your dad shining through too. Definitely your mom's smile. :)
I like the items you found in Amish country.
