Welcome to Trashtastic Tuesday! This is a little series around here where I show you something that I thrifted, sometimes I make it over, sometimes I don’t. Or it may be something that I have owned and I am tired of, or no longer like, so I make it over. But nevertheless, it is usually something that I paid very little money for. I have a treat for you today from a recent road trip we took. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have already caught a few peeks.
On Good Friday, we took a little trip to the Sugar Creek, Walnut Creek, Berlin area of Ohio – to Amish Country. This area is the home to the biggest Amish population in the country. Unfortunately, all of the Amish owned stores were closed for Good Friday.
Stupid us! We should have known that! But there were still plenty of stores open for business, and we had a great time. The highlight of our trip for me was the drive we took down some of the roads where several Amish farms are located. It was right before dinner, and all of the Amish families were on their way to some kind of event. They were all dressed up in their long black dresses and black suits with black hats. You are asked not to take pictures of the Amish. I took these pictures with my cell phone from a far away distance. None of them saw me taking the pictures, I would not want to disrespect them, but I could not help myself from sneaking a couple!
We were fortunate to see a lot of them out and about, and they looked so lovely. Like something out of a story book. I was amazed. What a treat that was for us all, and especially our Swedish daughter, who will probably never have an opportunity to see something like that again! We traveled behind this buggy with the children for some time. this pictures was taken before we started seeing them all dressed up. These are the normal clothes you can usually spot them wearing.

I am sure you will be seeing my trashtastic finds pop up in future posts. Do you have a favorite from the things I bought? Have you been to Amish country before? It is only about a three hours drive for us, so we have been several times. But this time, getting to see the Amish all dressed up, was my favorite trip of all!
