Despite a rainy start to the day
Susan and I decided to
take a day trip to
It was a good decision to go,
 the closer we got to Asheville
the more blue sky we saw.
The Earth Guild was our first stop
where I was able to pick up
some additional needle felting
supplies for my newest

We explored a bit downtown
then decided to have lunch at
Tupelo Honey Cafe.
Tupelo Honey is scheduled
to open a new restaurant in Johnson City
and we were keen to give it a try.

we knew it was another
 great decision
when they brought the
huge complementary biscuits with
homemade blueberry
to the table.
Many of the patrons were enjoying the
Creamy Tomato Soup
(which I really want to try)
but I settled on a breakfast dish
and Susan had a
vegetarian sandwich.
She said it was one of the best sandwiches
she'd ever eaten.
With our tummies full,
we headed down the road to
The Tobacco Barn
We discovered The Barn last Fall and
dearly loved it...but you know,
nothing is as special as the
first time.
We looked at all their treasures.
 And they've got a lot!!!
But we didn't come home with
very much.
One thing that fascinated me.
These colorful spindles.
They had tons of them,
Twelve for six dollars or
one dollar each.
I racked my brain,
but inspiration just didn't come.
One thing is for sure,
if I get an inspiration down the road,
I can go back and get them.
They're not going to sell out of their supply
any time soon.
Have a great day!

  1. Lunch and a shopping date. What fun! I love those spindles, too. I wonder if they were from an old mill somewhere.... It sounds like you had a wonderful day- xo Diana
