Friends With Benefits

No…not those kinds of friends with benefits! I’m talkin’ about friends who know the manager of a big thrift store and arrange to get you in the store and warehouse before opening hours!

Yesterday I took a drive to my friend L’s town about an hour away. They have a great thrift store that is only open 2 days each week – and we had backstage passes! We were on a mission to go through their buttons to restock supplies, but of course we got sidetracked in every direction.

And do you want to know what why I don’t mind driving an hour to visit this thrift store (and my friend)? Here’s a bit of the view along the way between my town and her town. This is what a typical winter day looks like in West Sweden. No Photoshop. Perhaps it’s no wonder that I often describe the weather here as ‘gray’. Just ‘gray’. But the scenery is divine!

this is more like a mansion house)

Until next time…
