Yesterday Katie and her boys and I ventured out for some good old mid-western style antiquing.
Antique stores around the country are different and unique and Michigan has its own style too. There were lots of furniture pieces that were recognizable as Amish made. Many that I wished I could take home with me. Lots of junk that people want to call "antique" and plenty of items that weren't even older then my shoes. But I did find a few treasures to take home.
My favorite place was here:It was more of a folk art store than a true antique store. It had a mixture of recently made folk art, older pieces and new country reproduction lines.
Behind the store was a charming garden area.
We explored the quiet setting.
Our jaunts out and about take us through Michigan's rural farmland.
