Can You Guess Where I Am?


I don't seem to stay in one place for very long these days. This huge Amish center diamond design was a pleasant surprise when I arrived at today's destination. Can you guess where I am?

Do you have it figured out?

The Davis Mercantile with it's beautiful new quilt design, is located in none other than - Shipshewana, Indiana, one of my favorite places to visit. Who am I kidding, I could easily live here.

Shipshewana's Quilt Festival started today. There was a luncheon with Marianne Fons and the quilt show opened right after that. Some of the area shops stayed open late and there are many more events planned over the next few days. You can check them out here.
I'll be here tomorrow and part of Friday bringing you as many of the sights as I can. For now, here's a slide show featuring some local shops.

The Shipshewana Backroads Shop Hop begins on Friday. There's been a few wrinkles before the scheduled hopping begins. Email me if you need contact information for the organizers.

It's hotter than blue blazes here. Still in the 90s at 7:30 PM. I'm comfortable in my room at the Farmstead Inn with a piece of Old Fashioned Cream pie from the Blue Gate calling my name.

    Thank you for visiting my new blog. Yours looks great—and you’ve been doing it almost THREE years already? WOW. I am impressed. I still have a lot to learn.

    Thank you for the sentimental journey down and around Shipshewana. Just what I needed today, reminded me of all those times I have been down those wonderful streets. There are days where I just yearn with a quiet and peacefulness of that special Amish community, Shipshewana will always hold a special place in my heart.
    Love, Rosemary
