A Little Trip to Virginia


This past week we took a little trip to Dinwiddie, mind Virginia, where my son and his wife live. We arrived around 6 p.m. It was a beautiful evening, and everything was set so that we could eat our dinner outside. They live in the country, and they’re property backs up to an old farm, where not too far in the distance, you can see the old barn that once served as a hospital during the Civil War.


The next morning we went out for breakfast in a town called Petersburg. The town is full of historic brick buildings, just waiting to be restored so businesses could open once again. Many did reopen, and there were quite a few antique shops. There was one called The Oak. It was a coop with lots of dealers. There was one particular dealer that sold primitives, and that is where I bought these two early bowls for the store, one yellow ware and one blue and white sponge ware. My favorite out of the two, is a yellowware bowl. It’s a really old one, probably mid 1800′s. It has the usual grazing inside from age, but there are no chips or cracks. The color is a wonderful dark mustard. It’s large too, measuring 12 inches across and almost 6 inches high. I’ll have them both for sale soon in Carole’s Country Store.



We had a wonderful visit. It was just long enough to get away from our normal routine, but to be honest, we don’t mind our normal routine, in fact we really enjoy it, so it was good getting back home again.
