On the road

While we have been away we have been driving a fair bit and seeing some of the landscape of this part of America. I love the wide rivers, the red barns and homesteads, the endless fields of corn. And the lakes! So many lakes.

Last week we drove to Fon du lac (foot of the lake) to visit Marks family home. Sadly his Dad is no longer alive but his spirit was still there within the walls of the house, in the shed and in the thick summer air outside. I took lots of photos but I'll keep them for another post.

We managed to squeeze in a bit if thrifting too, I just love the thrift stores here. My suitcase is going to be hard to zip up that's for sure!

It's a long drive there and back. We saw lots of things along the way. Here are a few shots xo

Beautiful ~ loving your pics! Your thrifted finds look amazing too. Don't forget that it's pretty cheap to post things home to yourself (ie more space for thrifted loveliness!!). Nic x

Bec, it all looks wonderful. Especially the light. Within the depths of winter one forgets how bright the summer days can be. Keep on having fun and happy thriftiness.
