Intercourse Village, Pa.

One night at the Inn ~ The Inn at Intercourse Village, Pa. (part of The Kitchen Kettle Village) that is.
This was a one night get away we planned in Feb. for my 50th and weren't sure we would be taking ~
given the current situation.
Having not been away with Frank since 2001 ~ we didn't want to give up!
We cashed in all our change , iky gold that was laying around my jewelry box for 20 yrs and guess what???
We had over $400.00 for our trip!

So here it is ~ my beloved Room 905 at The Inn.
This is my third stay here and this room feels like my own!
This was on the table when we entered the room ~ along with 2 stainless steel travel mugs for free refills in the Village, a bag of their yummy crackers, sample jams and chocolate and a coupon for ..........
this free breakfast for Frank and I!
All for $99.00!!!

After breakfast we went to Central Market in downtown Lancaster.

Tons of jams and jelly's from Amish farmers ..........

Flowers galore!

The smell of spring FILLS the air!

local chips ~mmmmm
Here are some of the bargains we picked up ~ they were almost giving this stuff away!
I really felt God's blessing on us because these items here are the kinds of things I love and treasure the most
and we found them all in one day.

This is hand dyed silk ribbon ($1.00 a yard!) and embroidery floss from The Quilt Museum in Lancaster.
I have to be honest ~ the museum gets a thumbs down from me.Very little content.
However ~ the free one in Intercourse ~ just across the street form our Inn gets THUMBS UP!!!!
Every time I go to Amish Country ~ I find a vintage pot holder that I like to bring home and duplicate.
I was working on the one I found this week-end last night while I was watching a preacher on TV I really love.
I was groovin' on what he was saying ~ not really paying attention to my sewing.
When I brought it down to show Frank ~ I realized (besides forgetting to give the poor girl an eye brow) ~
I made her lips look like the blow up dolls you see all over 42ND Street in NYC!!!
I was rolling in tears ~ I cracked myself up!
Needless to say ~ this one will not go on Etsy!

I love your comment about 42nd street.
But had you not said anything, I would have never even thought it!

SO funny!
