July 9, 2015

As I explored  Elkhart County  I saw so many wonderful  “Kodak Moments”.    Here are some of my favorites:

Nappanee has ” Apple  Picking ” – ” An A-Peeling Art”    in front of  many of the businesses  as a means  to “dress up the streets” and also as a means of identification.  I believe there are 24 now but the number keeps growing.

Beautiful and fragrant  flowers are everywhere in  Elkhart County – always a sign to me of  love for home and community.  This wagonful was sitting outside the Blue Gate Restaurant  in Shipshewana – an absolute MUST  place to eat  – the food was delicious!


Speaking of restaurants,  a couple had special ” Amish Buggy” seating!


I just happened to drive by and fall in love with this relax-and-sit-a-spell porch !

Shops of all kinds in Shipshewana !

What a wonderful  place for  a treasure hunt !


The prettiest rain barrel  I have ever seen!


This was my traveling companion, Tootsie.

She enjoyed  window shopping in Elkhart County too !

Gotta  love those Amish Buggies and the sound of  the  horse’s clattering hoofs as they passed by.

    My sister in KC has the round screened porch attached to their deck built by the Amish and they love it! A neighbor in Rockhill bought the Rooster in your picture from the shop on Shaw and it stands tall in her front yard! Cute!
