Shelburne Museum

The Shelburne museum is somewhere I always take myself of to whilst in Vermont. Their is always something to see and this time was no exception It's a fantastic place to while away the day and the quilt collection is a must.
You can use your camera but without flash. I am grateful I bought a new camera before I left England as my old one would not have produced the quality pictures with the flash off.

Stopped off to pay a visit to the Shelburne village Country Store. Full of things you never knew you needed.

My favourite building at the museum and must have been photographed hundred and hundred of times.

The building where the quilts are housed.

Just a few of the wonderful collection at the Shelburne. I would love anyone of them. How about you?

More photo's to follow.

P.S I'm using mobile blogger so pictures are coming up small. Click on them to enlarge.
