Good Friends and Good Junkin Time

As a lot of you know.  My good blogging buddy Susan from Must Love Junk and her hubby Keith came into town this past week and we had a few days to spend together.

We had a great time junkin, eating and just connecting.  It was a joy to have them stay with Terry and I.  

When I took them to the train after a couple of days with me I actually felt sad our visit  was over.

Here are some pictures of our visit.  I am going to say the pictures are not the greatest because they were taken with my cell phone but at least you can see some of the fun places we traveled.


Good Morning!!! Full Service B&B with breakfast at Junk Chic Cottage.  Keith and Susan having breakfast before we headed out.  Those little white chicken casserole dishes I got a while back at Tattered Tiques.  I put a Egg Strata in them to serve.  Aren't they a fun way to serve your guest a breakfast casserole.


One of our stops was to Tattered Tiques.  Susan was able to get a souvenir Vintage Girl Shirt.




Loved all the fun fall and halloween vignettes we saw as we were junkin!



One of my Fave Stores in Morris.  Lot's of wonderful treasures in this shop.




Great treasures at each stop.





We had lunch at Leddy Mae's.  Yummy homemade food and just adorable place to eat.


Sorry for the fuzzy pictures.  I love her homemade deserts and I have to agree with her chalk board sign.  Cake does fix everything!!!
The guys were such troopers to join us on a day of junkin and eating at Leddy Mae's.

Beautiful vignette to welcome you in to Whimsy another fun shop.  

Yep! Lot's of good meals shared.  It was such a fun time shared with two special people.

I did not get as many photos of all the places we visited I just was too wrapped up in junkin and having fun.

Thanks Susan and Keith for your stay and all the laughs and fun we had together.
I miss you guys!  Safe travels home.

Kris

Make sure you come back on Saturday for Spotlight.  Susan and I have two new bloggers for you to get to know better.

I think I was bigger than that when I was born! lol You all look happy and like you are having fun and that is what life is about, isn't it? If someone was looking at you from the outside they would think that you are all related-coloring and hair and all. You are all just good-looking people!!
