A dear friend and neighbor, Sandy, and I went exploring today to Amish country here in Ohio. I haven't been down that way in a couple of years, so this was a fun treat. It was a "warm" day here and sunny, 50s, but that is warm for us. A perfect day to spend some money on all of that gorgeous fabric! We went to 2 stores in Berlin, and one store in Charm. The life style in that part of our state in really incredible....a step back in time. We were heading home when the schools were letting out and all of these little ones walking on the road all dressed alike in navy and black was truly a sight to behold. I built up my stash pretty good, and this picture isn't even everything.
A parking lot of Amish buggies...couldn't get the horses in the pic as we were driving by.
A shot out of the front window of the car.....followed alot of these and it really slows down your travel pace......good for the stress level!
Here is the shop in Charm with some of the "vehicles" parked out front.....we tried to figure out who "cleans up" after these vehicles leave.
Tudy had posted this picture last weekend, but I just thought it was so neat, I wanted it on my blog also. A residence behind the quilt shop.....don't you love how the Amish farmers stack their hay in the fields?
