The Best Kept Secret of Williamsport, Pa.

Welcome to
Trimtex Mill Store in downtown
Williamsport, Pennsylvania,
home of the
Little League World Series!
Trimtex is the manufacturer of trims,
braids, ribbon - anything you can think of
to adorn your sewing, knitting, crocheting,
quilting, scrapbooking, card-making, etc., etc.
It's factory in Williamsport has had an outlet for
as many years as I have been living here.
We, Lycoming County residents, have been enjoying
their marvelous materials, at incredible low costs, and
now I want you to see what inspires us to CREATE !
The store is located in an old building in the center
of the city. Original high tin ceilings and wood plank floors
add to the warmth and serenity of the store, letting you relax and
take in the color and beauty of a delicate and intricate industry.
Grab bags are always available, you never know
what will be the special item this week.

One of my favorite things to look at in the store is in
the front window. An old trim machine.

The prices are unbelieveably inexpensive.
I can't tell you how cheap because I don't want to
start a stampede to the store. But it is an outlet store
and it truly is an outlet store.

As Ann makes her purchase, I'll leave you with
another photo of the store.
I think if you ever pass into Williamsport, Pa., for the
Little League World Series, business, pleasure or make a
special trip to Trimtex, you surely won't be disappointed.
You don't need alot of cash but you will need alot of time!

It was such a great day today
to go play in the snow.
Yogi and I had fun
making new trails for our skiis
and just enjoy being out in the sun.
On the other hand, Zuzu had more
interest in finding her sticks under
the snow. We found some of the BIG
ones and she was happy with those.
Loves the snow, especially on her nose!

We're looking forward to another snowfall
later in the week,,,,,,,YIPEE!

Four years and counting....

Yep, it's been four wonderful years since Zuzu has been a part of our family. What better way to celebrate than with cake.....cookie cake? Cookie cake with dog treats, yummy!!

I think she had a fun time taking that sneaky lick of the cookie but instead of cake she had a peanutty chew - that lasted much longer than cake!

So when I decided to take some snippings of my black pussy-willow to bring in and force (yes, I did say black pussy-willow!),
it didn't open black but deep pink - almost deep red......a sign of something? a freak of nature? is there something in my soil? water? Strange but very, very pretty to have on my windowsill. I will just keep pondering and smiling as I enjoy yet another gift from above!
