Cascade Mountain Winery
Cuddle Me Knits, I can make them in a ton of colors.
We decided we would head into the town of Millbrook for a bite to eat. The nice gal at the winery recommended a French Bistro so we parked the car and decided to look around the town a bit. That's when I spotted it!! The most inviting little glowing shop called "The Pumpkin House." I knew we just had to go inside and look around. As soon as I stepped inside, I knew I was going to be there for a while. It was all painted orange and had an amazing, eclectic variety of items from vintage to modern. It was almost difficult to take it all in, total sensory overload for me. Each room I walked through was even more inviting than the next. The entire store was like eye candy for me. I was deciding between two scarves when I heard Fred call out, "There's yarn in here." Yarn!!!... did I just hear him correctly....yup, I found my way into an entire room filled with gorgeous Peruvian wools, cottons, and hand knits all around me. I was giddy with excitement. I decided I had to have two beautiful skeins of hand painted thick and thin merino and two skeins of the softest cotton yarn I've ever felt in pink and red. I also purchased a really cool scarf that no one else likes but me but I had to have it, it was calling my name. I wanted the brightly colored one with pinks and salmons but Fred and the store owner talked me out of it. I ended up with the blue one but I still haven't stopped thinking about the pink and salmon one. I also bought a great vintage 45's record player for Fred's son, Dominick for Christmas. Dominick loves all things vintage so this gift is right up his alley.
