Trip to Abilene

Mom and I recently took a trip to Abilene, KS.  There are so many fun things to do and see there.  There are beautiful mansions, wonderful places to eat, and lots of comfy chairs to try out, (you can pick up these colorful Adirondack style chairs at RHV Do it Best Hardware for only $24.95! Very comfortable, and made in the USA!

Abilene also has great places to pick up antiques!

This “Tom & Jerry” punch bowl and 6 mugs were $25.  Very cute.

This is a “community quilt”.  Ladies in the town hand-stitched this entire quilt including all of the piecing and then embroidered their names into the center of the blocks.  What a wonderful piece!  Cost was $175.

I will post more finds later in the week!
