This was the view when I landed in Bloomington, IL yesterday.
Don’t let the camera angle fool you – this place is flat!
I love seeing how things are at every corner of this globe, It’s so different than my little part of North Carolina --
Where are the trees?
They have corn instead!
And I know they do a lot of cycling here because it IS so flat – it’s perfect for many things like farming ((Did I mention CORN!?))
Upon landing and grabbing my luggage, I met up with Marie who asked me what I wanted to do while I was here.
“Have you ever been to the Treadle?” she asks ---
“No, I haven’t” said I. “But I’ve heard it’s a place to be experienced!”
And so we went!
Little business center – pretty unassuming, right?
The photos here can’t even begin to have decent captions. I was keeping my mind open, knowing that if I kept looking I might find what I wanted ----
In here somewhere?
Don’t think I can get through here!
What was it I came here to find?
I found it!
I left with a bundle that was marked 1/2 price and a 1/2 yard of the cute sewing notions neutral just because it was cute.
There was so much STUFF in this shop that many would have a hard time finding their way through the aisles or know where to find what, but the owner was friendly, we had a great chat, and she knew where everything was and very helpful!
After a shopping adventure like this.we needed sustenance!
I’m in Culver’s Country!
And yes, we did!!
Mine was the flavor of the day – Heath Bar Crunch – YUMMMMM!!!
It was a great start to a great day in Bloomington, IL! There is more to follow, We took a trip to the David Davis Mansion! But my ride is picking me up soon and I need to hit send on this and get moving! I'll post those photos later ---
I'm on my way to a My Blue Heaven Workshop!
I wonder what TODAY’s Flavor of the Day will be? Hmmmmmmm!
