Lauren's Graduation & My Visit to Michigan

Last Friday I flew out to Michigan to see Mark & Lauren graduate.  Hard to believe this time has gone by so fast!  My dad met me there.  We did a little sightseeing while we were there.  I really noticed how much I like old stuff while we were there.  And everything in Michigan seemed so much older than here in California!  Look at their downtown theatre:
A church built in 1859:
We waited for Mark in the library.  I'd never seen a handle like this in a bathroom so I took a picture of it, too.  :-)
And this was the floor in the library:
After a walk through downtown Jackson, we drove to Ann Arbor.  I read Flea Market Style on the airplane on the way there & saw this shop advertised.  So we made a stop at Red Shoes Home Goods. They had this tiny little front door.  It reminded me of The Borrowers  book series that the girls read when they were younger.  Notice the little blue chair in the planter, too.
On the way back to Jackson we drove through Chelsea to see the home of Jiffy Mix!
Reminder:  You still have time to enter my Cottage Charm Giveaway.  I'll be drawing a name on May 29.  To enter leave a comment on my original giveaway post, here.

congratulations to the family. I haven't recently seen a bathroom knob like that. I'm intrigued with the antiquish stuff
