some more randomness...


I still didn't make it into my stamping room...so I thought I would post this picture I took while visiting CT. Now let me just say, I was pretty surprised to see this castle being built in the small town where I grew up (looks like it belongs at Disney), I had to sneak up the drive way and poke my camera in the hole of the fence to get this shot (so exciting). It sure is eccentric for the area, especially the exotic animals on the property (I saw a Zebra, Llama's and heard there is a giraffe too!!). I wonder what the neighbors think of it and how bizarre it looks with all the salt box and cape style houses nearby. Who would have guessed there would be a castle in Woodstock CT??? How is that for random?
Enjoy your weekend!

Wow Gretchen, how bizarre, and cool - and totally gorgeous! My girls would love to live in a real castle like that. You're right it does look like it belongs in Disney (which is where I thought the photo was from before I read your post!)

WOW, in CT?? My parents live in Chepachet RI, so I know the standard "style" out there, and THIS is NOT it!! Cool lookin' though! I also wanted to ask you about AZ. We're vacationing at my in-laws house in Carefree AZ. I don't know if your familiar with the area, but thought I would ask if you know any relatively close stamping/scrapbooking stores I should visit while I'm there. We'll be there for 16 days and I'm already dreading the withdrawl I'll be going through not having all my stash at my fingertips!!! TIA for any help
