Guess where I finally got to visit today?
Even the street signs are charming in this small town.
If I had a bucket list, I would fill it up with return visits!
|my husband thought one stop shopping for 'Liquor, Hay & Feed, and Hardware' was hilarious ~ ...boys :)|
The minute I stepped in the door it felt like home. People were nice. Every. Single. Soul. I spent as much time chatting as shopping!
Remember my Muker Mitts ? Tif spied them in my basket and asked if she could photograph them! See, Tif is an embroiderer and had seen my mittens before but not in person. We live in such a big yet small crafting community...let's see if you can follow this fun story. Tolt's proprietress, Anna, had seen my mittens on Ravelry. Anna is in my 'friends' and unbeknownst to me is the owner of Tolt ~ how did I miss that? Anyway, she had sent Tif a picture of my mittens when I posted them since Tif is a stitcher and Anna wanted her to see them. Today while I was chatting with Tif, she looked down into my basket and saw THE mitts! She was so excited to tell Anna that my 'mitts had visited Tolt' that she asked if she could take a photo to send to Anna since she was not at the shop today. Of course!!
So, there they are! My proud mittens getting photographed in front of Tolt's famous chalkboard! So proud :)
(you should check out Tif's blog ~ I've added it to the sidebar ~ she's 'Dottie Angel'...and then once you get there follow her link to her instagram account ~ jawdropping amazing stuff!!)
I made one slow pass around the store.
Looked at and squished everything. Ahhh.....
Checked out every nook and cranny and peeked in every basket.
And finally took out my shopping list and made some decisions.
And that's all for today ~ you'll have to wait to see what's inside because I'm tired and it's getting too dark to take nice photos.
And what came home with me is definitely worthy of nice photos!
