Last week DH and I went to visit his sister Sandy and her husband Brian for a couple of days. We had a great time seeing all the beautiful gardens, their horses and eating all the great food that was prepared for us. We visited some local antique shops in Bancroft and a primitive shoppe called "The Old Tin Shed" that was full of some great treasures. They sent us home with lots of raspberry bushes that we planted the day we got home. We are looking forward to another trip next year.

  1. what a great little shoppe..glad you had a great time on your mini vacation..have a wonderful weekend;)

  2. Now that looks like a nice little break. Your brother and sister in-laws have a lovely spread. I love the cookstove, however not certain I could handle it LOL. The charming shop looks like a wonderful place to visit, did you come home with any new primitives? Hope you are enjoying these beautiful Autumn days, sending greetings from Maine, Julie.

  3. Sometimes those little mini vacations are more rejuvenating and enjoyable than the formal ones. Glad you enjoyed - looks like you had beautiful weather - and when you're eating raspberries next year, you'll be thinking of fun times....Have a wonderful weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
