Today, my friends Mary and Michelle and I started out early this morning and went to a Primitive home Open House. Lots of goodies to be found there. The home was all decked out for Christmas and the people were coming in droves. We made a few purchases then got in the car and headed for Bayfield for lunch and some more shopping. We had a delicious lunch at the Black Dog pub. Mary had the fish and chips, and Michelle and I had the chicken wrap with Jamaican bean and vegetable soup. After lunch we had nice walk through the town and checked out some of the shops. On the way home, we stopped at the Pine Sampler shop in Hensall. It was filled to the brim with wonderful primitive furniture and accessories and the air was filled with the scent of the most wonderful candles, the window boxes outside were beautifully decorated with spruce, cedar, and pine boughs. They had such a nice selection of wool for rug hooking too. We left there and stopped in Exeter and had coffee and desert at Coffee Cultures, then a quick visit to the Quilt shop next door, and then home. We even drove through a little snow squall on the way. We missed Brenda, Shirley, and Linda today. They couldn't join us due to other commitments, but we were thinking of them.
