30 Rock Makes a Big Bang! {no, it’s not what you think}

30 Rock Makes a Big Bang! {no, it’s not what you think} {20}

My plan for this post was very simple.  I meant to do just a little post about the three dollar watering can that I bought at a yard sale over the Columbus Day weekend.  Not that it is anything so very special.  I bought it because I like it and it was very inexpensive and(…)

My Blogging Kit {what a blogger brings to the beach…}

My Blogging Kit {what a blogger brings to the beach…} {16}

Tomorrow morning I will head out to the shore.  Which shore is that?  Well, the Jersey Shore, of course.  This year, for the first time as adults, my big brother and I will be at the shore together.  And I’m really excited about that.  The last time we were there together there was a video(…)

The Little House of My Childhood {Innocence: 50% off at a yard sale}

The Little House of My Childhood {Innocence: 50% off at a yard sale} {30}

The other day, during a random outing with with my mom and the kids, we milked a cow saw some chickens played mini golf jumped on the jumping pillow saw the world’s largest garden gnome and on the way home. . . Stopped at a yard sale.   I didn’t really want to stop.  It(…)

Haven 2012 Conference Recap {i’m becoming a trip junky}

Haven 2012 Conference Recap {i’m becoming a trip junky} {15}

Well, despite all of my misplaced anxiety about what to wear to a conference, the night before I was set to travel to Atlanta found me not in a salon getting my nails painted, or even up in my room, putting together snazzy outfits, but rather out in the garden, till well after dark.  There(…)

Lucketts Wrap Up (part two)

Lucketts Wrap Up (part two) {10}

Okay, folks.  Tomorrow we move on back to regularly scheduled programming.  My trip to the Lucketts Spring Market was all that I thought it could be and so much more.  I’ve written about all I have to say on what I did and saw while I was there.  Here are a whole lot more photos(…)

Lucketts Wrap Up (Part One)

Lucketts Wrap Up (Part One) {15}

Have I told you before that I love old stuff?  Yes?       Oh. Can I tell you about it some more? I promised that I would show you all of the things that I bought for myself on my trip to the Annual Spring Market at The Old Lucketts Store and I will.(…)

The View From Over Here

The View From Over Here {27}

Yesterday, my birthday, I spent nearly the entire day in the car.  Driving.  Alone.  I think you all know, at this point what my destination was.  Quite a bit of planning went into making this trip happen.  It’s not very often that this mom of two hits the road and leaves her family to fend(…)

It’s My Birthday, I’m Bringing You a Present From Lucketts!

It’s My Birthday, I’m Bringing You a Present From Lucketts! {12}

So yesterday I drove from New York to Virginia.  It was a long drive.  I wish that I could say that it was a pretty drive. . . but it really wasn’t.  Before I leave I’m going to check and see if there is a scenic route to take on my return.  It seemed like(…)

Countdown to Lucketts!

Countdown to Lucketts! {16}

This week is full of the usual things – taking the kids to and from school, making dinners, supervising piano practice and taking emergency trips to the orthodontist.  This week is also full of some more unusual things.  FIL is having knee surgery as I type  (good luck Papa!), getting new tires put on my car,(…)

An Open Invitation (but not really. . .)

An Open Invitation (but not really. . .) {6}

So.  I’m getting ready.  For what?  Well, I have already mentioned my road trip to visit the Old Lucketts Store (I’m torn here – on their website there is no apostrophe. . .).  Next weekend (May 19&20) is their annual Spring Market.  It’s a huge extravaganza of antiques and “stuff” from over 170 vendors and(…)

Road Trip!

Road Trip! {16}

Well, it’s official.  I’m making a road trip!  I just got off the phone with the reservations desk for a hotel in Leesburg, Virginia where I plan to visit The Old Lucketts Store for their annual Spring Market!  I’m so excited.  This is a two day event showcasing some of my favorite antiques dealers and some(…)

Sunday Rainy Sunday

Sunday Rainy Sunday {11}

Our house is old.  Really old.  I mean, it’s not as old as the ones on Huguenot Street, but I think one-hundred-sixty-two years qualifies as old.  If I look closely enough I can see evidence of time all over the house and the property as well.  I’ve said before that I enjoy the feeling of history(…)

Llama Love. . .

Llama Love. . . {7}

Last week, while staying with my Aunt Kathie, I had the chance to visit Wunsapana Farm in Altamont, New York.  Please click the link and read about the farm in detail.  You won’t regret it.  I’m so happy to be able to share a little bit of our experience with you here.  Frankly, Mr. Social(…)
