It's vacation week for the Mr. and me.
We started out with a bike trip with my pretty sister Chris, her husband Kevin, and his brother Keith.
We started out at the Harley shop in Gaylord.
As we walked into the showroom, a beautiful bike was on display.
Kevin walked up to the bike, and sat on it.....SOLD!!!
An hour later, they were driving it up the road for the rest of our trip!
We drove through the Tunnel of Trees along the Lake Michigan shoreline, which was breathtaking!
Had lunch at Cross Village, then ended up in Mackinaw City for the night.
It was a fun trip with great people!!!
After returning home, we unpacked our gear.
Jim's brother and sister in law stopped in for the afternoon on their way up north for their vacation destination.
The next morning we packed the truck with the camping gear (tent) for the drive to Shipshawana, Indiana. We were going to the flea market!!
The first thing on my list was this vintage drainer to display some pretty dishes in.
I was also hunting for white shell buttons.
I found these for the pillows, and lavender sachets that I make.
While there, I try to pick up a couple of iron brackets.
I found more furniture, and pieces for an outdoor fairy garden.
I added these to the little water feature we have.
I love the bridge!
The grandkids are going to enjoy this, with the little waterfall.
This mailbox is heavy!
It's iron. The scroll work is really beautiful!
Can't wait to hang it on the porch.
The market isn't like it used to be with vendors that sell antiques, and craft items. The place is filled with t-shirts, and sunglasses, and tons of imports. It's very disappointing from years past.
We did have a good time, however. The weather was sunny, and very hot.
My niece that has cancer will be coming up with her two little ones this weekend. So our vacation week isn't over yet!
We still have a lot going on this summer. More company coming up to stay with us to enjoy the lake!
Life is good!
