Finishing Up The Holiday

I just wanted to tie up some loose ends about stuff from the holiday season.
I went to Shipshewana with DH and  boy did we have a good time!
First stop Jo Jo's Pretzels (of course).

001

Followed by Lolly's. I bought a few things that I still need to photograph to show you, so that's for another time. We went to Rebecca Haar's Antiques and it is always fabulous! Lots of mercury glass ornaments, some fabulous antique quilts and I even found some feedsacks! Sad part was that her mom, who was always there minding the shop, had passed away this past fall. Very sad.

In the hall way dividing Yoders was a fabulous gingerbread house display. 
More, close ups are on my Flickr account. (see link on side bar).

I managed to snap this photo of the Amish horse and buggy as we were coming out of E & S Sales. 
It was raining kind of hard so I had to snap it fast!

Horse and buggy

I received a phone call from my old college roommate and we ended up meeting up with her husband and daughter for lunch.
They were in town from Virginia. 
It was wonderful to catch up. Makes me realize how much I miss her!

Carol and me

Last but not least my DD2 and one of her BFF's were baking cookies with me when they decided to try on the Santa hat.
I couldn't resist a photo.

That wraps up 2011. I am looking forward to 2012. 
I do have some quilt related posting to do but it will have to wait until tomorrow. 
Have a wonderful day!

Sounds like you had some fun times! Great way to send off 2011. =)

My holidays were really nice with some of our family traveling to be here.

Yikes, I didn't have time to "tie loose ends" for 2011 on my blog...maybe, I will have to do a "back to the....past" /flashback sorta thing?

I think I have a problem... I recognized that Jo Jo pretzel from the thumbnail!!! We were at Lolly's the week before Christmas, but only had time for fabric, no pretzels, since we were on a schedule. I'm hungry just thinking about it!

Oh boy, looks like a lot of fun, and those pretzels! I love pretzels like that but don't know of any place around here that sells them any longer.
