There are too many since we went on a walkabout to CT and I saw tons to like. It will become two posts so stay tuned y'all.
I learned I love antique shops. Quirky stuff, history, variety. Why just look at the little lady above!
A pin cushion extrordinaire. I can't imagine why I didn't purchase her... wah! The house was awesome and I chatted to the owner for a long time about it.
Her friend is also going thru this at the moment, and we talked about Faith in the unknown and holding onto hope of better times to come.
Don't you love sharing real lives with fine people you meet. Just for a moment but the emotions and needs were real, and we held hands at the end of the conversation, just to continue the connection non-verbally for a moment. A real moment of sharing life.
I didn't take pics but we had lunch at an outdoor patio in cool breezy fall weather and it was delicious. Milo barked at just about every person passing by.
I liked this coolest Doorway! The owner was putting bones in the yard for Halloween, and I quipped, so THAT"S where the body is buried! He came back instantly with "shhhhhh, don't tell"
From that exchange and the doorway I bet he and I would be friends!
There is a turkey here.
He was shunned by the flock down the street so he hangs out alone.
Townsfolk have taken great care of him however so he is not lonely. He wanders around while every townsperson takes care of him. There were many signs, protect Kevin.
Vote for Kevin for mayor
Lots of signs suggested not eating turkey at Thanksgiving.
Good luck Kevin! We wondered if we'd spot him!
I LOVE history, and almost majored in Archeology so when I spotted a dig....
It was joy to stand in sunshine, feel a cool breeze and talk to them about discoveries. Milo wondered why they got to dig?? When he dug (and ate dirt) he got in trouble.
We decided this town is just like the one in Gilmore Girls, my fave show. We located who would be each quirky townsperson! Wish there were jobs for DH here.
I have a lot of fun pictures from an antique store and an estate sale we attended. I got to see historic buildings both times. I was in heaven! I will show those later but wanted to share this find at the estate sale.
If there is one thing I don't need right now, it's a cut glass pedestal bowl to move but it was not a case of need... it was pure want.
Me:I told DH, it is $2 and I can use if for so many things!
DH: What he asked....
DH: Are you going to start making jello?
Me: ... or fruit salad at dinners! it would make a great holder for sweet potato casserole! Or for holding stuff by the front door.
obviously it's a miracle bowl. It made me happy to just look at it, reminding me of other times. Of times sitting around a dinner table laughing and talking.
He got it for me. It's already done Halloween candy duty!
I like old quilts and this antique wandering ways was so interesting to me. Hand pieced and quilted. Subtle colors too.
I love a pile of pumpkins!

Milo loves chips... and meeting dogs. He met so many dogs on this trip, and since the dog on the left is so small and was intimidated by my baby, we put them on an even playing field.

Much more to come, but that's enough for today!
Please enjoy these people keeping it happy by noting things that made them happy this week!
