Seen At The Antique Mall



Just some cute things I saw at the antique mall during my last visit. I really loved the little wooden perky pot person, but he was quite pricey and I was there shopping for a gift (not myself) so he stayed behind. I love finding vintage candy boxes as they make a fun display around Halloween even if they are not Halloween related. This was a good one, but again just a little too pricey.
I love vintage children’s records, the images are just always so good!

The Round Barn’s Corn Roast




A few weekends ago my son and I headed over to the historic round barn for their annual corn roast. If you are ever near Gettysburg PA the Round Barn is worth a stop. The have a farm store inside and welcome you to climb the steps and see inside the top floor where they hold events/weddings/etc. They had corn roasted in its husk, BBQ, and my favorite grilled peaches over vanilla ice cream!
We checked out the animals, enjoyed the band, ate, and shopped. The store has all kinds of fun things like moonshine jelly :) The Round Barn is always our go-to spot in the fall for pumpkins and gourds as they always have such a great selection and their prices are fantastic!

Halloween Quilt




I’ve been working on my Halloween quilts (this is one I started two Summers ago!) a bit this month. I wanted to finish both of them before the end of July, and now I’m pushing it a bit by saying before the end of August ;) The days just get away from me in the Summer with so many activities going on. In any case I am hoping they are both finished before Halloween this year, that is at least a goal that seems quite manageable.
This quilt is a big hodgepodge, no set pattern and I’m adding sections of gray fabric wherever I need. I don’t mind the randomness of it, and since technically speaking it was one of the first quilt I ever started, I’m okay with any weirdness.
