~Small Town New England

 Yesterday I went to visit my friend Maria who  had her booth “Primitives by Maria” in the

Templeton Arts & Crafts Festival.

Templeton is celebrating it’s 250th Anniversary this year, what a quintessential  New England town this is.

Her booth happened to be sitting in front of

Country Mischief

The owner Gail is waving in the doorway!

What a wonderful shop she has!!

"To the rest of the country, New England has always stood in much the same
relation as England has to America -- that of spiritual homeland and mother
country."

  5. OH!! I LOVE these pictures....my mother and sister live in Templeton, and we visit Country Mischief EVERY time I make a trip up there! We eat lunch in the cafe and then spend over an hour looking through the shop -- it's one of the only things I desperately MISS since moving away!

    This post has just brightened my whole day -- THANK YOU! :-D
