Cottage On The River

Today we went to a huge event in a small town about 1/2 hour away from our home. It was a beautiful sunny day but the air was crisp and cool! About 53 degrees! What ever happened to our "Indian Summer"? I think we missed it recently when we were in Georgia. Right now as I'm typing this our late news is on and he's talking snow flakes tomorrow, yikes!

So this big event we went to is called the "AppleButter Fest" and it's in GrandRapids, Ohio. A whole lotta people turn out for this every year! I'll post picture's of it tomorrow because what I really want to post is about my good friend Karen's Shop which is right in the town where this is held! It's called Cottage On The River and it's just the cutest shop, I love it. There's a river that runs behind it with a gorgeous view! My friend and her daughter Erika own and run the shop. They also carry my jewelry.

So right now I'm going to post pictures of their beautiful shop and hope you enjoy! Of coarse I have to post a picture of Karen and Erika!

And I can't wait till it's decorated for Christmas, it's the most gorgeous place to be! I'll be sure and get pictures to post when they have their Christmas Open House :) One year I even helped decorate,hmmm, maybe they need help again!
