Today my hubby and I took a mini-vacation—a one-day bus trip to Brownville, NE, 75 miles southeast of our home town of Lincoln, NE. The trip was sponsored by one of our local quilt shops, The Quilted Kitty (www.quiltedkitty.com).
Brownville is Nebraska's oldest town, tucked away in the scenic southeast corner of the State. It is a quaint little place that time forgot, but artisans rediscovered. It hosts 4 bookstores, gift shops, a broom shop, jewelry studio, bound journal and stationery store, museums, art galleries, a winery, an ice cream shop, and a quilt shop! It's authentic riverboat hotel was closed due to flooding on the Missouri River. www.River-Inn-Resort.com.
Brownville also sponsors an Old Time Autumn & Quilt Show (October 8-9), and Paint Brownville Autumn Plein Aire Art Event (October 6-9). www.Brownville-NE.com. ( I immediately thought of my blog friend, Sonya, when I read about the plein aire event! Check out her beautiful blog at: sonyajohnsonart.blogspot.com. )
The weather was beautiful. The time away was good for the soul.
