Hi friends! After many days of traveling, I am back home with some photos to share with you. On September 15, we loaded up the car and began the long journey to see our son in Virginia. It was a perfect visit! The temperatures were unseasonably warm, but we didn't care a bit. We were just grateful to spend time with our oldest child. Family...it's what life is all about!
Of course, I had to visit a few of my favorite antique stores while in VA. I love this dining room set. My son is in the market for a set and I think it would look great in his home!
I always stop at this booth and usually find a piece or two to add to my Fostoria collection. She also has great Pyrex items. I have one of the turquoise bowls. Such a happy color! I just love her vintage inspired booth.
Another few booths. Isn't the burplap wreath cute? I am not sure why, but I am drawn to conversation chairs. I can just imagine a hard working housewife taking a break from her daily routine to have a phone chat with her closest friend!
The "Fall Gatherings" sign in my last post was made by the lady who has this booth.
Of course, it wasn't all antique shopping. We ate at a delightful Italian restaurant Sunday afternoon. Thought you might like a look at the yummiest part of the restaurant!
There is so much history in Virginia. In the past six years since our son moved there, we have visited much of the state. This trip we decided to explore the Northern Neck of Virginia. We stopped in Reedville and walked the main street known as Millionaire's Row with it's impressive Victorian era mansions. Love this picture! My son and I had just eaten some delicious crab cakes from a little shop along the Chesapeake Bay. Wish I had one or two for supper tonight!
On the way back to Mississippi, we stopped and spent a few days in the Smoky Mountains. This fall display was in one of my favorite places to eat and shop...The Apple Barn! I'll take one of everything, please!
It was a blessing to be able to visit our son and enjoy the incredible beauty of God's world! Other than window shopping, I did bring home several adorable vintage pumpkins and beautiful, large real pumpkins of different varieties. I can't wait show you what I am doing with the real pumpkins! Have a wonderful week friends!
