Weekend stuff

17 comments
Wonderful weather here . . . 88 degrees and its hard to believe it was snowing 2 weeks ago.

I have a weakness for linens, especially tea towels and vintage table cloths. I had a stainless steel bar put up in my kitchen so I can display my collection.

These 2 towels are new, I couldn't resist. I love the trim on each of them. I could make them, and I do make some, but these were too lovely to pass up.

I really like pretzels having grown up in the heart of pretzel country in Pennsylvania. And of course I love chocolate - who doesn't? Well the marriage of the 2 flavors in these chocolate covered pretzels I got at Costco is fabulous. And of course we love everything Hershey. One of our favorite places is Hershey, PA. If you ever get near there you have to go to Hershey Park and at least go on the trolley tour of the city surrounding Hershey. The story of Milton Hershey is one that every MBA student and anyone who wants to start a business should read and study. If you want to learn about someone who will inspire you, read about Milton Hershey. I have to warn you though, learning about him will make you buy Hershey's products. The Hershey company is still an amazing business that supports education, medical research and the whole community/county surrounding it. The Biography channel had a show about him this month but really there is no substitute for actually being there and seeing what he accomplished and his legacy.

And here is a sneak peak at my new dress quilt/pattern. Its really coming along and I'm enjoying it so much.

I love old linens also. I'm lucky to have some that my mom and grandma made. I've been a pretzel addict all my life and now I guess I have to admit that I'm a chocolate addict too. I better not get any of those chocolate covered pretzels! He He!

Oooh -- pretzels and chocolate. Sounds too good -- way too good.

eeee! I love the new block!

Oh yes, Hershey PA is very wonderful. Our parents took us when we were kids, and once we went on a field trip from school there. I wonder if the street lights are still Hersey Kisses?

I also am a big fan of the PRETZEL! I especially love soft pretzels with cheddar cheese spread. Oh My Goodness...can you say YUM! I also like regular pretzels with mustard and of course, pretzels dipped in chocolate...you'd have to be insane not to like them.

Love the dress pattern! I think it is the most adorable thing! Hope you have a great - Warm weekend Nannette. :)

I love pretzels - it must be the pennsylvanian in me. My grandmother lived in PA when I was growing up. I would go visit her each summer, and one of our day trips was to Hershey - I loved it. I would love to take my husband to PA, but we haven't had time to visit there, yet.

Darling dress pattern. Living in Ohio I'm so close to Pennsylvania. My Grandmother originated from Harrisburg before moving to CA. I do hope one day to visit Hershey, Harrisburg and Lancaster County. Always love getting first hand info on places to visit. Thanks!

I love tea towels also, and those you pictured are so great! The dress block is so cute. Can't wait to see the quilt!

Net said...

I am absolutely desperate to see more of that quilt! The block is so gorgeous. I can't wait to see more blocks, are they all similar colours? The fabrics and colours are beautiful!

Sherry said...
