Love Love the photos and that you all got to take this trip. Looking forward to the other pics!


Oh I LOVE the look of that! Looks like someplace I would LOVE to live. I would go back to before TV, when families lived and worked together. When it was harder and simpler all at the same time.
How far of a drive did you have? Like how many hours is it? I would have to map it out from here - seems like it would take US like 5 days just to get there!

I just love the old barn in your third photo. Beautiful with the mountains behind it. Sounds like you had a great trip. :-)


I just finished making a rag weaving for the first time and now want to tackle a rag rug, let's have a snowy day rag rug making playdate this winter!

Beautiful pictures. I've always thought that the 1950'd would be fun. I think that that I a thing for poodle skirts. But...Little House on the Prairie does have an appeal too.
