Folkart Gatherings and Thanksgiving

On our way to Seattle last week, we stopped in the little town of Centralia, WA so I could go to this darling store. It's called Folkart Gatherings "Too" because they have another location in Sumner, WA. Hubby left to fill the car with gas and get a newspaper, so I was on my own to look around.



This is the entrance.


Cute decor on the outside of the shop.



This is a little shed next to the shop which also has loads of Christmas items in it.



The side of the shed.



One little corner of the inside of the shed.



And on to the inside of the shop... This is what you see when you walk in the door. The rest of the pictures were all taken inside the shop. Enjoy!












I just love the shop and am probably lucky I don't live closer!




Oh....she wasn't in the shop! LOL. We got to spend a whole day with Emma while her Mommy and Daddy were at work on Wednesday. Her favorite thing to do is go to the park. So, of course, Papa and Grammy were more than happy to take her.


Coloring in a giant coloring book.


And...showing her Mommy what a good job she did. Those occasional pictures of Emma are getting more frequent, huh? Hey, it's my blog! ;-)

Emma is a darling - you show her off all you want!! I don't blame you for that - what a blessing!

I think I've been to that store, though not for years. Is it the one right off the freeway, but on the opposite of the freeway from the outlet stores? Seems like there is a fast food place next door. If that isn't it can you give me directions? Might have to take a "field trip" with a couple quilty pals -- we could hit the quilt shops on the same trip.

Gee - I'm glad we don't live any closer, either! I love the snowmen and santas picture! Thanks so much, Anne! It must be hard living so far from Emma - she is a darling! Cheers!

Emma is a little doll. What a wonderful shop to visit. That place would do alot of damage to my bank account.

That's my kind of store, thanks for the tour. I loved looking at each picture to see all the stuff in the shop. I could spend hours looking.

Emma is such a sweetie, of course please show her off.

Emma is adorable. And I need to live by that shop. I could go crazy in there. I love all those red santas and white snowmen. Great place.
