School House Rock & Get Out & Vote!!

Tuesday, November 2, 2010
Have you remembered to vote today? Hoping so, and when you vote, be sure to take your children along with them how important it is to do!

Last September when we visited Minnesota, my dear friend Sharon planned a very special day for us to enjoy. She knows all about my love for all things with a a word, OLD!

We drove to Wisconsin and antiqued some of the most wonderful little out of the way spots and we visited Walker's Mennonite Bulk Foods Store. Then we carried on to the reason for taking this trip.....we went to visit and have lunch with Sharon's twin sister, Gail.

Gail lives in a lovely home nestled into the hill country of Western Wisconsin on several acres. They are surrounded by woods and horses and sheep. An idealic setting. Gail's house has a very special history in this area. At one time it was the area ................................................

Schoolhouse!! Isn't it just devine! I didn't take photos of the inside but will always remember how lovely the orginial wide-plank wood floors were, the high, high ceilings and the tiny little room that had floor to ceiling built in glass-doored shelving (the school library). This picture hangs in their entryway. The Blodgett School, 1937.

Some of my treasures I brought home from this trip include these sweet little flower frogs. I always wanted some small ones for standing up cards.

Dolly Dingle Paper Dolls...I just loved paper dolls as a girl and still love cutting paper.

I'm going to do something holiday related with these but haven't quite decided. Suggestions?
