Weekend Get Away

I've been meaning to post about our weekend getaway ALL week, DH and I got away to Harrison Hot Springs for 2 days of sun and soaking in the hot springs. It's only about 1.5 hours from home. On our way we stopped at a farm called The Back Porch, they offer fresh roasted organic coffee, pottery, free run eggs, many types of garlic, hand made baskets and antiques. I just love this place with all the out buildings dotted around the grounds.

Here is the little antique shop in the garden area .Sorry about the quality of the pictures, I forgot my camera and was using my cell phone.

A garden bed, I brought one of these frames home for my garden.

The chicken shed, we are enjoying the eggs these girls laid for us. The first egg I tried had 2 yolks.

This green house is amazing....all made of old window frames, I would absolutely love this in my backyard.

A real working john, just in case. The iron fences were all over the gardens and for sale, I would love these for my front yard but a bit expensive.

It was a fantastic weekend relaxing, we are lucky to have a place like Harrison so close to home, I love how soft my skin feels after soaking in the natural hot springs. 

I'm working on a fall quilt using homespuns and a panel, I don't usually like panels (they are never straight when cutting) but I like the designs of black cats, pumpkins and sunflowers. I still need to add the borders.

Happy Quilting.

Thanks for sharing your vacation. I too would have loved to stop there!
(My commute to work is 1.5 hours each way--I long for the day when a 1.5 hour drive will take me on a vacation!)

What a wonderful place to visit and so full of rusty metal treasures (my favorite) as well as chickens! Thank you for sharing it with us :-)
can't wait to see your panel quilt. I have one that sounds similar to start. I love the cats and pumpkins too and especially the sunflowers.
