A Day of Antiquing in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania

Saturday, June 30th, 2012

I needed to get out so I took a drive to Lancaster County, ask Pennsylvania to a town called Lititz. I remember my dear mother always talking about this quaint little town. She sold her quilts and dolls to a shop keeper there, ed and now that I think about it, treatment I remember going there with her. By the way, she is doing good. She is healthy and happy. Yesterday she turned 94.

There was a little antique show in Lititz yesterday. It was it’s 50th anniversary, very unusual for an antique show. I bought a fabulous very 19th century spice chest, could be late 18th century. It came out of a old Chester County farmhouse, and has been in the same family for several generations. Originally it had feet, but over the years someone has taken them off. The drawers are dovetailed and it is hand plained. There was a lock on the bottom drawer, but it is now missing.

I also purchased a child’s high chair from the early 1700′s, too came from the same family. Originally the seat was probably rush, but was replaced most likely in the late 1700′s with a piece of leather. I love it!

I have an a wonderful early bucket with pale yellow paint, might have been white originally, but oxidized to yellow. An old tread spool, early bees wax, tin horn, old leather books, one is a dictionary, hand made ladies stockings with initials and more. Hoping to photograph everything soon, and will have them on my website. If you have an interest in anything in the photo, don’t hesitate to email me and I’ll try to answer any questions you might have.

Take good care.

Rainbows

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

A friend invited me to go on an antiquing trip to Ohio recently. I thought it would be a good idea for me to get away for a few days. It was a hard thing to do, recipe but I did it. At the end of six days, it was time to drive home. There were so many rainclouds in the sky, and here and there the sun was peaking through.

My friend, Lynne, said, “look for a rainbow”, to which I replied, “oh, Lynne, I have not seen a rainbow for a few years, and when I do see one, it seems to disappear so quickly that I hardly had enough time to enjoy it.”

Less then ONE minute after I said that, a beautiful rainbow started appearing. We could not believe it. It was so beautiful and it made a huge arc across one side of the highway to the other. I grabbed my camera and started taking photos. As I was taking them, Lynne said, “wouldn’t it be great if we saw a double rainbow.” I have never in my life seen a double one, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when soon after she said that, a double rainbow appeared!

It is said that rainbows occur when it is raining and the sun is shining simultaneously. These lasted for almost ONE HOUR!!

It is also said that rainbows are God’s promise. Genesis 9

My photos do not do them justice. The colors were so vivid and it was huge.

By this time we had arrived at our hotel, and as we walked inside , I turned to get one last look, and when I did, it had already started to fade away.

I choose to believe it was a gift from my son, in fact, I am sure of it.
