Our recent trip to the cabin just wouldn’t be complete without a trip into the small town nearby. We have a few favorite places we like to visit and even though it’s a very small town, we always manage to find some treasures there.
Once we toured the town, we headed back to the cabin with our treasures.
The Ridge Restaurant also has a small corner with a few antiques and linens for sale. While waiting in line to pay for our donuts, I spotted a lovely filet crocheted piece draped over a wooden shelf. I walked over to look at it and the tag said, “Hand made in Laurelville.” I walked away, but kept looking back at the piece. Something drew me back to it and I decided it must go home with me. When I handed it to the woman at the cash register, she told me that an elderly woman in town had made it, but she’d passed away about a year ago. I told her I crocheted and I really loved the detail that went into this piece. She told me the woman who made it never thought her work was worth anything–I told her it was worth quite a bit to me and she said she was happy it was going home with someone who would appreciate it.
