Day Two

We slept in a bit this morning, had a nice breakfast at the hotel and then set off on another day of adventure.

Our first stop was at Antique Crossroads in Hagerstown where we made several lovely purchases and enjoyed lots of other wonderful items.

The owner allowed me to photograph this well done primitive rug hanging over the desk in his office. I really like how the frame was painted to complement the rug.

This glorious coverlet was made in NY and was in very good condition.

I like everything about this quilt. Don't recall ever having seen this pattern before.

Wouldn't this be a great idea to preserve your child.....or grand child's handprint?

Another nicely done quilt.

And then on to Funkstown for a couple of nice shops....

Adore this green cabinet. It would store/hide a lot of UFOs.

A beautiful step back cabinet.

This sweet vignette with a charming garden cabinet.

Love the green in this handwoven towel.

Then to Spring Meadows, just outside of Bedford. Is this house not just spectacular?? It has the cutest antique shop behind it, and a nice guest house. There we met up with Nada and three of her hooking buddies who were having a little hooking retreat for the weekend. Always fun to meet other hookers from different parts if the country.

Finally, after a delicious dinner The Jean Bonnet Tavern in Bedford, we arrived at The Woolley Fox around 8 p.m.  We are excited to finally be here!

Full bellies and tired feet.
The voice of my husband on the phone.
The search for small treasures.

Take Care,


  1. Enjoyed antiquing with you and loved your choices to photograph. Thanks


  2. Sounds like an awesome adventure! Love those cabinets and would certainly move into that house if given the opportunity! :-)

  3. Thanks for sharing so many wonderful treasures. That step back with just one door on each piece is most unusual. It would look good in my!
    Have a wonderful time at the WF. I am going for the first time in October.
    Happy hooking :)

  4. The quilt with the circular blocks looks interesting. Not one I would want to make. And I don't think I have ever seen the design before either.
