Saturday

Saturday turned out to be a fun day. A friend of mine invited me to go to an antique show with her and her friend. It was the Elverson show at the Twin Valley High School in Elverson, illness PA. It was a beautiful day and the ride along the country roads are always so relaxing.

It always amazes me how much untouched land there is, and I love looking at all the old farms. I just happened to catch this woman as she rode down her driveway, little did she know that I was taking her picture.

It felt like Summer today, but the pumpkins are a reminder that it’s Fall and soon we will be celebrating Thanksgiving.

The antique show was pretty wonderful and I made a couple of purchases there, but it was the antique shop that we visited afterwards where I found some wonderful things for you. A early child’s cupboard with old red paint and original drawer pulls.

A wonderful pair of brown Amish knitted socks, perfect hung on a peg rack, I also have a pair of child’s early white socks. These look so cute when stuffed with fabric to give it the look that Santa has arrived and filled then with surprises. Filled with greens, a small toy or candy canes, hung on a mantle or door gives a sweet festive look.

I also bought the lid from an early dough box. The original red paint is gorgeous and has just the right patina. Perfect for use as a tablescape on the middle of a dining table, decorated with greens and candles for the holiday season. Here I am showing it with early brush trees and Santas.

All of these goodies are available in my store, so if you see something you like, come on over.
HAPPY DAY EVERYONE, and thanks so much for stopping by. I’ll try to blog more often.
