Our first stop today was the Livery Stable In Center Point.When ever I metion the store most people say where! Well for anyone who knows where it is or has been there, you know it is a real neat place with alot of cool stuff.If you have never been there ,it is located in what at one time was a real barn, 520 Washington St. This picture shows one of Lynn's Red White & Blue displays. Check it out if you get a chance.
This is Lynn owner of The Livery Stable
Our next stop was at the Linn News Letter,where we were greeted by Toby Joe.His job is to announce anyone who comes in the door much cuter than a bell don't you think? We made our way back to Center Point and to Joneys for a tenderloin yum.A couple of stops in Shellsburg,and call it a day.I feel like Barb C,without the hard work . Maybe tomarrow we'll find something else to do. Tune in tomarrow for the continuing adventures of The Traveling Betty's


The last couple of days have really been something else.This morning I wrote my blog hit the wrong button and wiped out the whole thing.CR-P I had to leave for another round of flyer distribution.So rather than going through all of it again I'll give you the short version.We started in Mount Vernon,Polly's then Alice's then Wolfes. Down the street to The Skillet Cafe for some real good food and very friendly people.On to First Brick,got back in the car drove to Marion .Went to Antique Ave.I love that building it reminds me of my Grandfathers house.I would move in ,in a heart beat.Left there went on to Top Drawer, then down the street to Czech Village Antiques. when we left there we were done for the day yaaaah.

Traveling Betty's On The Go

This doll at Gatherings in Anamosa looks just about how I feel . Arletta & I decided today was the day we were going to deliver some flyers for the Traveling Betty's Occasional Sale.Today of all days, the hottest day of the year so far.As you can see she is kind of flat.

We got to see Wanda, which I have been saying I was going to do for like a month now. Her store looks fantastic. She has moved things around,gotten new things and really has the place looking sharp. I love this green cupboard with the red & green quilt hanging over the door.There are lots of real cool things I would load up in a heart beat if I had the room for it all. I love the prim look and Wanda knows how to put it all together. Well I guess thats all for today, we will be back out there tomarrow.Hope it's not quite so HOT
