Buffalo

I have always considered Buffalo "home", even though I have lived in many places across the U.S. For that reason, my visit there this past week was so very lovely. My mom and I drove up with Lola and she was such a great car traveler. The drive was beautiful.....made the length of it easier to handle. In fact, I was so taken by all the green. Especially in West Virginia. We don't have anything nearly as green here in Florida.

A trip wouldn't be complete without a stop in a fabric store! We went to Patchwork Garden on Transit Rd. in Buffalo and it was a bit of heaven! I have never been to a fabric store with such a fantastic selection. The owner, Joan, was so gracious because when we got there they were actually closed but since a class was in session, Joan let us come in and shop anyway. Thanks Joan! She also gave me permission to snap some photos.

These are the fat quarters I bought. Crazy? Maybe. ;) I bought over 30. Addicted? Yes!
On Thursday we drove into Buffalo and walked Elmwood Avenue. Again, I was so amazed at all the green!


These were some beautiful flowers (among many!) at a co-op market on Elmwood.
This is a photo I took at Glen Falls park in Williamsville. It smelled so good! The air was so fresh and cool. I was in heaven.
On Friday night we met family for a fish fry. I took this photo on the way to the restaurant. I love the Memorial Day flags in the grass.
On Saturday night I had a very special evening planned at HSBC Arena with my favorite boy band. This photo was snapped right after I met said boy band. Note super big smile.
......And here's a photo with little old me and the boy band. It's an NKOTB sandwich! It was really, really memorable.

We got back to Florida on Tuesday evening and much of today was spent unpacking, organizing, etc.. While in Buffalo, we also went to the flea market, and some estate sales. I picked up some neat stuff. More to come!

I hope everyone's week is going great! Now, to get on with some sewing!
