No…not the end of blogging…but the end of the vacation posts.
I am only going to share bits and pieces of the trip.
And it seems like that trip was months and months ago…so sad how fast time goes by isn’t it?
I started composing this post on Friday and it was a perfect Fall feeling kind of day – I only wish it was Fall for real - it can’t come soon enough for me.
I so want to get my Fall decor out but think it’s just a tad early. Will have to wait until after Labor Day at least.
I first want to let you all know I put 2 new punch needle on my other blog
And as I was typing up this blog post and adding this picture an email popped up and IT SOLD!!!
So – I have a purchase to share with you from the Brimfield antique show when on vacation.
I already showed you the butter churn from a shop in Maine, but this is from the antique show.
It’s an 1800’s 1 gallon cream crock by D. P. Shenfelder of Reading, PA.
It was our biggest purchase and with the butter churn, were the only purchases on this trip.
While we were in Sturbridge, Mass. we went into the Yankee Peddler shop and sitting on a shelf were some of my designs!
It was kind of surreal seeing them there.
I like the round one – they really changed out that design when they
reproduced it – I never made one with Pineapples all in a circle.
Well I haven’t shown you any vacation pictures have I?
There really aren’t many left that are interesting…but I’ll post a couple.
I’m kind of getting thing out of order but I guess that won’t hurt anything.
So…lets back up to Lancaster, PA …
Before we left there to head north east we stopped at a gourd farm – last Fall we went to a different one and both are so wonderful and so many gourds it was hard to choose.
These larger ones will be used in displays
Doug got all the holes drilled in them and also cut my Indian corn into chunks to use.
I have been looking for whole walnuts, lemon leaves and bay leaves to string with them but no one has them around here so I may have to order on line.
I guess I never thought about it but ‘whole walnuts’ can not be found until near the holidays – who knew.
All the grocery stores we went to said they don’t get them in until Fall.
Pricing the garlands will be the trick – but then again pricing anything one ‘makes’ is hard to do isn’t it?
And also on our way home from the trip we stopped back in Lancaster because it was opening day of A.T. Imports in their new location.
Not sure why they opened when they did because it was LESS than half stocked. Very little to choose from but I did actually find some of the ‘supplies’ I was needing.
When fully stocked their new location will be wonderful compared to what they did have in the old warehouse across the street.
So here I am jumping around again – I can’t seem to find a good flow…lol
We’re back at the Brimfield antique show and who was there signing autographs but Butch Patrick (Eddie Munster) from the Munsters.
He has not changed…just got older.
Felt kind of bad for him though – there wasn’t a whole lot of people clamoring to get his autograph.
I think I will leave you now with just those photos…I am going to do a ‘page’ at the top of my blog with pictures of OLD STURDBRIDGE VILLAGE.
There are so many wonderful pictures and it would be too much to put into a post.
So when I get this posted I will try and get that ‘page’ going.
Thanks again everyone for your sweet and so kind response to my last post.
I seriously think I was having a bad day when I posted it.
I’m staying with blogging as it’s a release for me so thank you all who visit!
