running away

this past weekend, i decided to run away from home and not tell anyone where i was going (well, besides my friend, Jane, who joined me) We met up with each other and went to a barn sale held by Beth and Jill. It's called "Gypsy Barn Market" and they are holding sales every month during the warm weather. we had a lot of fun and bought a few cute items. afterwards we had a really nice lunch before going our separate ways.

Before i headed to my next destination , i stopped by the super Joann's to stock up on some needed items. that's always a fun place to go! Next i headed over to Jersey Made to visit with my friends, Holly and Abbie (and Neil!) and to check out the store. the shoppe is in Mount Holly and it is really cute. they did such a nice job. It's a good size shop and she is even holding classes there. (i LOVED the little classroom; especially the tool section!) the shop is carrying items that have all handmade by NJ artists. there were wonderful soaps, Abbie's awesome tshirts and cute birdie plaques, jewelry, repurposed hats from old pants, cool knitted scarves and more. the house where Jersey Made is in, is so cool (just check out that front porch!).


after saying goodbye to the girls, i walked around town for just a bit to take some photos. Mt. Holly is such a cute little town and has so many pretty little buildings.
