The weather was great and we had a blast. Roanoke is so pretty and I love the mountains.
Roanoke is a railroad town.
We stopped at the Taubman Museum to check out a Norman Rockwell exhibit - Troy has a school assignment to do so we worked in it to our schedule.
I remember this picture from my childhood - hanging in my doctors office
And this cool sculpture is made out of 700,000 coffee stirrers! The artist built it in place and it took a week to build. It filled a whole room!
And of course when I see a neat building we have to stop and take pictures. This is St Andrews Catholic Church and it sits on a hill overlooking downtown Roanoke.
Then we went off to Black Dog Salvage in search of some wood, iron work and maybe a few other treasures. We are fans of the show and it was neat to see things we recognized - like the clock faces from the high school in Newark, NJ.
We got to go to the warehouse where they store the wood and met Jeff. I was in heaven! Beams, trusses and wood galore. Came home with some barnwood.
A little light sanding and my bed goes from plain jane to modern rustic.
Well the fun is over - back to work.
