While in Florence, Oregon I stopped in to see a really cute vintage antique shop called Cafe Mon Ami. I took some pictures you can view at Mon Ami Cafe.
My favorite item was a tea cozy that was so colorful and whimsical that I had to have it. I spent $10 and they threw in the tea pot (it was chipped around the sprout). It is made from a synthetic yarn that is quite stretchy. If you know what the yarn is called, I would like to know.
I also bought a great book while I was away. Books are some of my favorite things and buying a book while on vacation is more fun for me than any souvenir. In Cannon Beach I found a great yarn shop. I was tempted by a felting book or a book on crocheting flowers. I chose the later. When I get some flowers completed I will share them with you.
