A Whimsical Cottage Farm Tour.

I have to say, I was not expecting this as we drove home from my niece's graduation party on Sunday.  We had traveled East to Green Bay and on the way home we took a slightly different route.
When lo and behold, I saw all these wonderful outbuildings that were covered with whimsical garden decor.


 Everything you could think of and everywhere you looked!






And while I was racing around like one of these handsome fellows with their heads lopped off, hubby was being a very patient fellow!
Although I think he enjoyed it too!


But he was in charge of watching this little gal while I shopped, and she was raring to go!
Just look at her eyes .. she was as enthralled by everything as her Grandma was!   And there was no way I was going to get her to look at the camera, too much fun stuff to take in all around her!   How about the cute little out-house I had them pose in front of!


There were paths of goodies just everywhere.








How about those colorful hanging bottles?




All leading up to this cute cottage gift shop.
That was filled to the brim with  room after room of good stuff!






And this barn covered with metal art.



Don't ya just love this?








And inside room after room of more goodies.....


But then I kind of gave up on the picture taking for awhile!


And headed back outside for a quick little look because the troops were getting restless and ready to hit the road.










However I had no doubt that I could have probably spent all day here wandering around!


And I am going to  have to head back one day soon!




Today is my son Joshua's Birthday!  It seems not very long ago when he was my baby, now he has a baby of his own!
Have a great week everyone!

  9. Oh, that looks like my kind of place. My husband is our resident gardener and he is always stopping at places with all the yard art outside. I've had to explain to him there is a fine line between classy and tacky when it comes to having stuff out in the yard!! Happy Birthday to your son...time sure goes fast doesn't it?
