We spent a wonderful week in the Finger Lakes region in Upstate NY last week. It was so relaxing and fun. We stayed in Watkins Glen, a little town on the tip of Seneca Lake. Our hotel was gorgeous. We were on the top floor and the view was amazing. I sat outside every morning with my coffee and a book and took in the beautiful sights.
I just loved this little building. We took walks on the dock and around the little town. We found a homemade ice cream store and went every night!
There is a State Park in the center of the town. We hike the Glen and it was just magnificent.
We took day trips to Ithaca and Corning. Corning is home of the Corning Museum of Glass. It was great! Ryan took a workshop and blew his own glass ornament! We also took a walk around town and I found THE most amazing shop ever! It's called Corning Stitch Works and it's filled with the most wonderful vintage goodies.
She has beautiful vintage fabrics and trims. I could have spent a fortune in there!
I love how she displayed everything, too. There were all kinds of shabby dressers, jars, baskets, etc. This is the look I'd love to have for my scraproom.
I definitely need to make a trip back up this this place!!! If you're anywhere near Corning, go!! It would be well worth it!
Now, if you've read through all of that, I'm impressed. I'll leave you with a recent creation.
This is a card that I did for Emma's last week. Our color inspiration was a sunflower. Check out the Emma's Blog for great ideas from the team.
I used some October Afternoon, Jenni Bowlin, Jillibean Soup and Fancy Pants papers along with American Crafts chipboard and a Making Memories label.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
