As promised, here are some pictures from my day in Blacksburg. It was a beautiful warm day and my body is still angry with me for walking 4 hours in the hot sun. I didn't see anything that I absolutely loved so my purchases were few. I bought a small 7" x 9" piece made out of vintage found objects glued onto an old cigar box - pretty neat - when I spotted the bird, I had to have it - made by a gal from Alabama. Also, I purchased a windchime made out of old metal items - made by a gentleman from Wytheville, VA. (Already hanging in the screened-in porch). I bought a few small Christmas gifts but can't mention them as the receivers read my Blog everyday.
When my legs started screaming at me, I got in the car and drove around Blacksburg for a while and took a few photos. It is a neat college town and so pretty. Virginia Tech is on a beautiful campus with lots of flowers and outstanding views all around. Even the buildings are beautiful - many of them made of large old stone. Of course, you can't mention VT without a picture of a Hokie Bird.
All in all, it was a good day.
