A Lovely Trip...through Illinois!

We had a Great Trip Through Illinois!
Spent a lot of time in Mt. Carroll....Great Shops...Great Food... Great Fun! We stopped a Church Sale....in Iowa.... and found some Neat Old Cook Books....I had forgotten my coat....and looked on the rack... and found a Wonderful....London Fog Trench Coat! Fits Perfect! { looks a little weird...with my sparkly flip flops...but all of the Church Ladies Approved of the Fit!} I'm going to try and get a shoe...or boot on...today....ahhhh ....doubtful....
We arrived in Chicago...in the early evening.... found a Great Hotel.... and had a Lovely Supper at
 PF Chang's.... Yum!
Will be heading to the Garden Show as soon as it opens... Oh Boy! Can't Wait!
Mt.Carroll is a Darling Town....
There is No Way...Allyson can pass up a Fudge Shop....No Way!!!  She bought a Wonderful Pine Needle Embellished Gourd Basket...as well.... soooo cool!
We had a Great Lunch....at this Coffee House... Wow... and..I bought a loaf of that Wonderful Bread!!!!
Allyson...and Susan.... Susan's Place...is....Amazing....
I bought a Huge Box FULL {much more than this...} of Romantic Staffordshire....Feather Edge... Soft Paste...and Ironstone from Susan... LOVE IT!!!!
You Will Love...Susan...and Her Beautiful Store....!
Allyson and I had a great time....with Susan....Allyson found a Great Miniature Chest....and a Darling Chalkware Cat!!!
