Good morning, come on in and have a cup of coffee. It is Kona this morning and I am sorry there is nothing sweet, but I didn't get home from my trip until yesterday. I have to go to the store today, so if you want to come back tomorrow there will be something sweet. Renda and Dodd invited Deb and I to go to Pa with them on their Spring Break. Our destination was Hershey. We left Saturday and what a wonderful time we had. You all know we stop at any and all antique shops along our travels. What fun we have and often times find some wonderful treasures. Our first stop was a huge success for Dodd and Renda. They bought a beautiful bonnet topped tiger maple high boy. Just spectacular and I will show pictures later. They got it at one of our favorite shops off the interstate in Wytheville, Va, called The Station. We love this shop as they have some wonderful antiques. It is a must when we go that way. A little farther up the road we found a nice little shop in Salem, we had never visited before. Well there, they found a Walnut corner cupboard and a wonderful old blanket box. So there is another road trip in their future to pick these items up. Deb got a gorgeous chippendale mirror at The Station too, that they will bring home to her. We had so much stuff coming home there was hardly room for us.
We found a great little town and it was full of antique shops. We spent a full day there and that is where I found a lot of my goodies. We ate lunch in a drugstore/lunch counter. I had Ham loaf which was very good.
Olivia is not an antiquer, so she spent a lot of time sitting in the car playing her ukelele.lol She didn't mind at all. She had definitely gotten better when she flew back to DC.
I will show you some of my goodies.
Well I am so glad you came along with me today on our trip. We antiqued everyday and all the way home. One of my favorite shops along the way was the huge shop in Bunker Hill, W. Va. They had some wonderful things and we all left there with goodies. Deb found a set of brown and white Clarice Clift, china, by Tonquin there. lol I loved Cross Roads shop in Hershey, and the BootLeg Mall in Columbia. The lady who ran it was so nice. Burning Bridge in Columbia was fantastic too. All in all it was just refreshing seeing so many wonderful things. I found a heart mat in Columbia, that I loved but it was way above my pocket book. The shop had some wonderful antiques but some exorbitant prices. Especially on things I wanted.lol
I will leave you with my favorite picture and am so happy you came Through My Back door where life is good, and spring always comes.
PS: Nothing has been done to the house as the weather was so bad when the work was to begin. It will be a while now, as the kids have plans for a few weeks.
PSS: I am so thankful for warm weather. I know you all are too.
