What a fun day! Dick and I went up north to the "little house" and friend Debbie and I took off Sunday morning for Houghton Lake (Michigan). I went to this shop earlier in the winter, but it was fun to go back with a girlfriend.

Things are just starting to pop outside the shop. The weather still hasn't turned to summer, especially up north, but I'm sure there will be lots of goodies outside when it does.

Shopkeeper Sandy is as sweet as she can be.

There are little booths all throughout the back of the shop and mostly prims!

This old buggy seat would be so cute on a front porch!

There were some great birdhouses all throughout the shop.

I tried to get a little taste of what is for sale throughout the building.

This potting bench was adorable!

Crow pie anyone?

As you can see, there is a great mix.

I was crazy about the birdfeeders made out of the old pans.

Another full booth!

This gal had so many smalls done up. Everything from clothespin dolls, cats, owls, tiny dolls, stars and more.

There were some beautiful wool pieces done in old windows and frames.

You can see how full it is! If you are ever in northern Michigan, be sure to stop by and visit Sandy and see this cute shop.

Today I went on a school field trip with our Abbey to the Longway Planatarium in Flint. It was really fun to see how interested two rooms of third graders were - and how well behaved! I was so glad I was able to go on my day off. She came home with me after it was over and we are going to just hang out until after dinner.

Well friends, time to get busy on some of my own things for the shop. Have a great evening!

Until next time...


  1. Dawn I also love to go into Houghton Lake, especially when the weather is crummy up there and nothing else to do but shop! I love your new header here at your blog :)

  2. Wow, what fun! Thanks for sharing the pictures!

  3. Love the pics!!! Saw some cute things in the shop. Hope things are going o.k. for you up that way, and I am glad you like my screen door.
