Today we did something different. We went to The Muskogee East of the Mississippi River Intertribal Gathering in Sopchoppy, Florida. Sopchoppy is this very cool, tiny town about 15 miles south of us. It is a charming little place where they have a few stores: one IGA grocery store, one antique shop, one little bistro, one recording studio (I know, not what you usually find in tiny-town America), and a historical school where the Sopchoppy Opry performs. It really is quite charming and only takes about 30 seconds to drive through. Anyway, we decided to head out to this Intertribal Gathering at the Sopchoppy Park to see what we might find. It was really fun. The music and dancing were cool and the people were so very friendly. Lots of talking about Native American History which was really quite fascinating. Here are some pictures of the little tents set up with cool, unique items. It is not everyday that you find a hide for sale.

Airstream Vendors

When we took our little weekend get-a-way to Seaside, FL, we came upon a whole lineup of food vendors selling out ofAirstreams across the street from the beach. Among the delicious eateries we found a great BBQ joint, cupcake shop, and juice bar. I just had to take a few shots for Courtney, who is obsessed with the adorable vintage trailers. I can see why, it was so cute seeing them lined up and all decked out.

A Treasury for Mamma

I created a treasury inspired by my Grandmother who collects paperweights and bricks. She quilts, carves wooden animals, and grows delicious tomatoes. She works the daily crossword, frequents garage sales and bakes delicious pies. She is a Texas girl that loves to travel. I want to be just like her!

Sewing Sabbatical

I am not sure why, but the last month or so I have not wanted to sew. I have not wanted to do anything creative. Do you ever get that way? When all you want to do is hang out with the one you love and cuddle in front of the TV? That is how I feel lately. It guess maybe it is because of having a bit of an emotional month, but regardless, I feel a little guilty. Like I am letting myself down. Am I just burnt out? I want to want to sew again. I am sure it will come back. The Sunday Seamstress is still in there, I guess she is just taking a bit of a break right now.

Hugs and Kisses, Kristin

Mini Vacations

My husband and I have decided that we would take more mini vacations with each other. We have such a blast when we get away. We laugh more, talk more, dream more... We have decided to get away just the two of us whenever we can. Exploring a new place together really puts a jolt into a marriage.
Can you tell where we went this weekend? Only three hours away we have a little piece of paradise. Seaside, FL. I highly recommend it. Here are some pics from my lazy day on the beach chair:
