One of my favorite things to do is walk around Mirror Lake in Lake Placid.
It's only 2.5 miles but the view is wonderful and the flowers are gorgeous!
I parked my car in town and started walking counter clockwise along the beach and past some amazing houses.
I saw a small group of mallards doing what ducks do and definitely not afraid.
Then came the flowers--oh, the flowers! This is one of many planters spaced out along the route.
Check out these hydrangeas in front of a private residence.
About 3/4 of the way around I stopped to take photos of the lush gardens in front of the Mirror Lake Inn.
I dream of having a garden like this someday:)
I went back to my car (had to complete the entire route, lol!) and then walked back through town and treated myself to a new pair of Hoka running shoes. Love the added cushioning!
Yesterday I stopped by the thrift shop . . .
. . . and came home with more fabrics (L to R): Promenade II by Le Rouvray for Free Spirit, Old Glory V by Nancy Gere Windham, Judy Rothermel Old Sturbridge Village Collection, Victorian Botanicals by Pam Weeks for P&B Textiles, and Blue Skies by Thimbleberries for RJR.
A charm packet of 125 5" squares. . .
. . . and two Old Navajo Sampler block patterns by One Horse Studio. My initial thought was to make monthly minis but I've decided to go back on Saturday and buy the rest--I think there's 12 total. Plus they are only $1.00 each! How can I resist????
When I paid for these goodies the cashier wondered what was going on with all the fabric sales that day. I told her I was a quilter and she said another person was in earlier and bought a whole big stack. Uh-oh!
Enjoy your week!
