I’ve Been Antiquing Again!



Hello friends. Yesterday I took a drive through the countryside, viagra looking for things to buy for my store It was a gorgeous day in Chester County, Pa., and I was ready to shop! On my first stop, I found the best little stool. I love the color, really very yummy, don’t you think? It’s hard to find nice old painted stools these days, so when I saw it I just had to have it for the store. I also found a set of old metal measures in three different sizes, perfect in a cupboard, on a shelf, or filled with geraniums for your porch or patio. After paying for my finds, I drove to Gap, Pa. Along the way, I noticed up ahead, a yard sale! Excitement!! The house was a wonderful old farmhouse, but oh, did it need tender loving care. There were lots of things to look at, but most didn’t interest me,until I spotted this early handmade scrapper, perfect to use as a cheese board, and these wonderful little tins. blogragballs.jpg



I was all set to pay, when I noticed three rag balls in a box next to the table. I love old rag balls. Got them too. I have a collection of them displayed in an old wooden bowl on my table on my sunporch. They also look great in an old basket. If you are trying to give your house that wonderful country feel, these are the kinds of things that will help you achieve that “look”. After several more stops, and with no luck, I decided it was time to head on home. I was driving in a very hilling area, and as I came around the bend, on the other side of the road, I saw an Amish buggy being pulled by a VERY tired horse, but no one was in the buggy! As I pass it, I see a young Amish boy BEHIND the buggy, in his BARE FEET, straw hat, and knickers, pushing the buggy up the hill!!! I felt so sorry for him AND his horse, but what could I do? There were about six cars behind him wanting to pass, but it was a very dangerous road, because of all the twists and turns. I was so glad I was heading the other way! I would have loved to have taken a picture, but that was impossible. So, that was my day. Everything I bought will be for sale in a couple of days on my website, just as soon as I can get my webmaster husband to put them in for me. Please come by. Who knows, I might have found just the right thing for you. Until our next visit, take good care.
