Hamilton, Missouri

Another year of blogging has begun, I just printed my 4th book from Blog2Print.  I love the idea of have personal journals to keep for myself and my grandchildren.

Today for Blue Monday I am sharing a photo of  J.C. Penney's birthplace, Hamilton, Missouri.
I spent a day of quilt fabric shopping with my SIL here last summer.

The " Missouri Star Quilting Company" is an amazing store. I'm not a quilter but they have every fabric imaginable. They have a wonderful on-line store too for all you quilters.

There are numerous original buildings still there from when Mr. Penney lived there.  To see detail enlarge the photo.

Linking with our lovely hostess Sally @ SMILING SALLY

It's nice to know a bit more about this great man of God. I'm sure he'd be unhappy with his store open on Sunday--just like every other one.

Thanks for sharing, Ann.

Please consider returning and leaving a comment for me.
Happy Blue Monday!

Hi Ann, now I know where J. C. Penny was from. I'm not a quilter, but when I end up at a quilt shop I want to be a quilter too!

I do not quilt either, but I have a great love for quilts. Have too many, but still want all I see.

Hi Ann
I'm with Debbie do tell us more about printing the blog into a book I had a look at the website, it looks great.
I would love to be a quilter, I can imagine you had a lovely day out with your SIL choosing fabrics and catching up.
Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog
