I'm about a week late!
First I want to say thank you to all the sweet bloggers that left a comment when my dad passed away.
People I don't even know left such kind words. Bloggers really are the best!!!
My way of dealing with loosing someone close is to get out of town for a while.
Mr. Wild agreed to a 5 day road trip to Missouri. We followed the Mississippi River through Iowa into Missouri and stopped at every river town we could find. Taking pictures of the beautiful old buildings.
We brought our pick-up camper and camped at state parks along the way, mostly along the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. We had a little rain the first 2 days but after that the sun came out, we had perfect weather on top of seeing the wild Redbuds in bloom...something we don't have in Minnesota...I love them!
We stopped at every antique store that was open, I'll save the fun things I found for later.
For those of you that live in Missouri, I just love your state! I usually end up in MO at least 2 times a year and have my favorite antique shops.
For 4 years in a row I attended a rug hooking workshop in the old historic town of Arrow Rock, Missouri where the Santa Fe Trail began. There is a ton of history in this quaint little town and I have always wanted Mr. Wild to see it.
One of the shop owners that I knew 10 years ago was still in business and I picked up this pretty cloche...the bonus was the artificial hyacinths that came with it.
I just unpacked it and put it out for the spring season and I think it's so pretty in front of the old door.
Thanks for stopping!!!
