I really felt like I had died and gone to heaven. It was like standing on hallowed ground for me to see things in person I have only looked at pictures of. The rugs I saw are even more beautiful in person. It was like going to an art exhibit.
I did buy backing from the man who owns The Dorr Mill Store. He was very nice. I also got to use an Bee Line Townsend Cutter. All I can say is WOW!! What an amazing cutter.
On our way home we stopped by a Bonsai nursery grower so Ron could pick up some rare trees that he has been looking for to add to his collection. It was very interesting to talk to the owner and to listen to her explain so many things about grafting and raising trees. I didn't take pictures of that because I was listening to her go on about trees like I have just gone on and on about rugs.
It was very nice to get away for a bit. But it is so nice to get back home.
