more traveling

This is my Renegade booth on the second day (Sunday). I always like to rearrange things and see if something else seems to catch everyone’s notice. (usually yes!)

After the market I had 1 1/2 days of down time and I wandered around the neighborhood where my daughter lives. Look what I found- a shop where people can buy their outfits for Octoberfest!

And a most fantastic deli- look at all the sausages!

There was also a store with Nutcrackers and carved wooden folk figures but unfortunately it was closed. Something to look forward to visit next time. I got home on Tuesday night.

Then, on Thursday evening, my husband and I headed out again- this time for a real little vacation. Hmm, going away with no work-related ulterior motive- what a good idea! It has been a very long time since that happened. Our first stop was the Shelburne Museum. I had such a good time when I visited a few months ago that Ben wanted to see too. And, that meant I not only got to see some favorite things again, but also check out many exhibits that I missed last time. Even the parking lot is lovely!

I’ll just post a few pics- here is an amazing Jaquard loom-

See what it is set up to weave? Amazing!

And I am now taking a lot more notice of these figures since doing my Staffordshire project. These figures are large- maybe 14″ high?

From there, we drove to Montreal. That will be for tomorrow.

One thought on “more traveling

  1. Hi Mimi ! Shelburn Museum ! One of my favorite places ! Have been going there since I was a young child. you can’t do it in one day. Probably now you can’t get it all in in two days. I remember when they transported the Ticonderoga to the museum. It was a big project and lots of talk about the move from the lake to where it sits now. I have been on it in the water. I grew up not far from there. I was up in the Burlington area about 3 weeks ago. So disappointed the leaves hadn’t turned yet. We stopped in Waterbury to see the flood damage it was overwhelming to see that town in the mess it is in. Stopped to see friend that had been flooded out, they were doing pertty good for the amount of mud and water to clean up. Still no heat , not good, they didn’t know when they would be able to get heat in the house. Hope you enjoyed your trip to Burlington/Shelburn VT!
