Mid Century Decor

 
Yesterday,
I went on a bus trip
with my mom
to
Amish Country.
 
Holmes County, Ohio.
The largest Amish settlement in the country,
and so on. 
 
I heard a lot of Amish facts.
The bus driver was very informative.
I live in Amish country,
not a big place,
not "fancy" Amish
with phones and bicycles
and
scooters
and
well...
how to put this delicately....
hmmm,
sometimes I just wonder how much to put out there.
 
Let's just say that not only are these Ohio Amish people
FANCY,
they are also ...
nice smelling! 
 
There I said it.
 
They work in stores and restaurants
and
wear
white athletic shoes.
No barn or horse or
"other"
smells among them.
 
It must be Saturday night every night there!
 
So,
quilts and fabric and apple butter
and
baked goods
and
hats
and
wool
and
woodcrafts
and
 
well, all that aside...
I found camper decor! 
 
I actually think I might have got voted the ugliest purchases of the day!

Well this one made me giggle....I read all the Amish books and they portray them as what you said...'fancy' Amish - but in fact there are some that are like you said...lol
Glad your shopping experience in Holme's county was a great one.
Blessings,
Karen

How fun your day must have been and spending time with your Mom too!
Never been to Holmes County, always wondered how it was.

Glad you had a good time.

Gosh we haven't been there in several years but I always enjoyed the area. So clean and friendly.
Sugarcreek was a favorite spot.It was starting to get more commercial last visit, McDonalds and all. Guess that's progress.
