Galaxy-Gram! Antiquing My Way--

This morning before leaving woodbridge Marti and Carrie and I left the hotel and headed over to ihop because the breakfast area at the hotel was mobbed, there was no place to sit, and definitely no food worth waiting for!

Let it be said that ihop was not much better! But the company was splendid, and we talked over breakfast and rehashed our escapades from this past weekend in Woodbridge.

I had plans for this morning and early afternoon--and I set right on it after the girls headed back toward Delaware.

I did some of this!
And some of that!
And some of that other thing!

And even drove down the road to Culpeper because I was still in the mood to browse!
And on my way back even stopped for ice cream.  I drove right past Moo Thru on my way to Culpeper, and I knew it was my destiny before checking into my hotel back in Manassas.

Peanut butter ice cream, two scoops!
I've got less than an hour before meeting up with the guild ladies to start tonight's activities.

There will be more photos of my antique mall fines in tomorrow morning blog post. This is just a teaser! :-)

And I have no idea why my photos are kind of wavy --- did I thumb dial something on the screen that I shouldn't have?! Hmmmmm


  1. looks like maybe you set it to a lower resolution. I have no idea why, or that you could even do that, but this could be the result of that.

  2. I love Culpepper and love their quilt shop. Sure hope you got to stop in there. They have some lovely antique shops. I go whenever I get a chance.

  3. I love how you have luck in finding these great antique shops with beautiful treasures!!!!

  4. I have no idea how you can just take pictures of those beautiful vintage quilts and then just leave them there. I would have to take so many of them home!!

  5. I try to visit Culpeper each summer when we vacation in Virginia. Great little town.

  6. Just want to know. What did the antique malls fine you for LOL!

    Sounds like you are having a good time.

  7. Hi Bonnie, I really enjoy the pictures. I will be in Pinehurst,NC for 3 days, July 9,10 and 11th. I am going to be waiting for my daughter who will be in training for 8 hours each day.. I love thrift shops and antique shops, any favorite ones I should visit? sandsanders9@gmail.com

  8. Thanks for allowing me to virtual sightsee with you. Moo Thru is new to me, I will have to make a trip! I live very close to Woodbridge an would like to have sewn with you, however work keeps getting in the way.

  9. Bonnie... I hear you about hotel breakfast area being packed, noisy and just not where I want to have the first food (not even a meal!) of the day!... You are in a very busy and crowded area of the country.

    LOVE that red and white quilt!!!!! Thanks for the tour

    Smiles, JulieinTN
