The shops there are great and the atmosphere is awesome. the
shopping center is called Short Pump Town Centre....Lots of neat stores, also some of the usual ones....Dillards, Macy's, etc..
I want to go back during the Christmas season...actually I think the festivities start around Thanksgiving....There is a train that goes through the inside courtyard and they make snow so the people can enjoy Christmas shopping in the snow.My sister and I went in through Macy's and thought we were going into another store or at least into the mall area that goes from one store to the other....but to our surprise the entire inside is open to the outside...hence the courtyard. The small houses in the picture was of houses for the children to play in.The circle is greenery (live) and flowers and then there's the pump.I am told that a couple years ago all this was was land, with nothing around...They sure have made a stunning shopping area for everyone to enjoy. I want to go back and maybe have a whole day to check it out.
Also, I was reading the comments on Mrs. Goodneedle's blog and someone mentioned going to a town called Solvand, Ca. We went there in Feb. but unfortunately it was late and most everything had already closed and we had to leave shortly after our arrival, but that is definitely a town that I want to return to someday.
Sometimes our work keeps us on the go....but somwday.......I will go back********
We are now back in Charlotte, NC.. about 2 1/2 weeks until we will be home again. I am looking forward to that, as I want to be in my sewing room for a while.I have found out our next GGbaby is a girl, so I must make a quilt for her, and also my DH"s cousins daughter has just found out she is pregnant, so that will be another quilt..At last count, I think I now need to make 4...I guess I need to get busy, and I will.
The weather here today is beautiful and I think we are going to find a restaurant and get us a bite to eat. So take care, my friends,and keep quilting memories, I will join you soon.
