A Trip to PA

This past weekend, I went to visit my sister and her family in Stroudsburg, PA.  My niece, Anna, made her First Holy Communion.  As you can see, she is a real comedian. 









There is a great flea market near their home, but the weather was so cold and windy, and I wasn't dressed for it, I only bought one thing, (which is unheard of for me).  Fortunately, there was a great multi-dealer shop nearby.  I did find a few things.  The space was limited in the car, so I couldn't go too wild.  This is the cutest, vintage, chippy childs chair (it looks german or dutch).  I think it would make a great plant stand for someone's porch.





This is a delicate celluloid dresser tray I found.   Oh, so cute. 











Noxema, anyone?  This is the biggest Noxema jar I have ever seen.  The cobalt blue is fabulous.  What a great way to store cotton balls. 











While I was gone, the Shop Girls brought in some great items.  This is an adorable old metal childs tractor.  What a find, and a what a great thing to put in your garden.










What a great pink and white cottage chair.  This would look lovely in someone's bedroom.











These precious mini dress forms with french words and scenes are so unique.  A Cottage Muse has been very busy creating these one -of-a-kind pieces of art.  I have one next to a shabby crown under a cloche.  Love them!!!










One of my favorite things is ironstone, especially  creamers.  You just can't have enough of the them. 

If you are going to visit a friend, what a great gift to bring them,  an old bucket filled with vintage garden tools, gloves and seed packets. 

These old tin picnic baskets are great storage. 

 My sister Caroline and her daughter Anna.  It was so great seeing them again.

The trip to PA was surely worth it. Those are lovely finds in the flea market. The picnic basket is still good for outdoor picnics. The blue Noxema jar is just fab. Thanks for sharing.
