Norwich, Vermont

I am glad it is Saturday even though it isn't suppose to be a beautiful sunny day here in New Hampshire. Even though my yard needs some TLC, I guess it is going to have to wait, unless the rain showers stop that is.
 Here's a couple journal pages I made in my spring summer journal about my journey to Vermont. I am going to link this post to Art Journal Journey. I made them with collage and sketching. The colors below I made by using some of those Tim Holtz distress crayons and then using a wet brush over them.
Thought you might enjoy a few photos from the little town in Vermont where my baking class was and where I stayed for a couple nights during my 4 days class.
This is a pretty house, and below is the old Victorian Inn I stayed at.
This store sells EVERYTHING.  And I mean everything. 
Here's their motto. "If we don't have it, you don't need it."

A peek in their window. This colorful paisley is from a piano they keep outside.I leaned on it to take my snapshot through the window.
Cool fence!
Another view of the inn. I actually stayed in the greenish building you can see off to the left. 
The Inn has all these rocking chairs on the front porch- but too cold to sit out in April. And below are their mascots. That's a little taxidermy owl on the moose's antler.

Norwich is a pretty little New England town for sure.
I hope you enjoyed your little views.

This must been a wonderful place - fantastic photo impressions Erika! Your journal pages as a reminder of the baking class are fabulous - great sketching skills and your handwriting is super !

You are a wonderful hostess for Art Journal Journey ♥♥♥
I am very stressed meanwhile with brothersitting.
He needs so much of me the whole day - would not be so hard if he would not wake me up in the middle of the night when he must go to the loo - and if he can't sleep he keeps me awake with the art os soundeffects -lol.

But we have nice weather and I manage to walk him today in the morning 13ooo steps - so I hope that he will have a better sleep after more walking.

Happy Saturday Erika!

Your journal pages are incredible. I adore how you managed to keep these up in your journal. It must be a wonderful journal, and I would love to peruse it.

I was glad you shared Dan and Whit's with us, since you explained it so well in a previous post. And I see what you mean by still wintery looking there.

It looks like it's a lovely town, and some of the homes are similar to those in the mid-west. Others looked definitely New England. Thanks for sharing these and happy Mother's Day.

And I especially loved the journal page with the painting and weather!
