Years Later Everything Still Looks Fresh

Frozen in the moment. Still fresh,  Magic.

I went back to an external hard drive and dug through archives

Looking for images that say fresh.  I sure like to photograph my food. Scroll down for the fresh statue.

Aunt LInda Teaches Anna How to Dip Strawberries in Chocolate

And Maura is taking good notes!

Shot last May in Columbus, the night before Anna’s Communion Party.

Today We Saw a Turquoise Plastic Radio, a Bobble-Head Jesus, a Princess Grace Ashtray and a Copy of Paradise Lost

Where can you see all that in one afternoon?  BELLEVUE, PA  And in the slideshow at the end of this post!!  Head vases, a statue of Groucho Marx, autograph book, Betty Boop and an Atwater Kent Radio.…..oh, and another church for sale, too!

After my 11 o’clock appointment, J and I headed for Bellevue.  Who knew that tomorrow is the start of their 4 day long Summer Solstice Spectacular.  You can click here for the details  We grabbed a quick bite at Joe’s Rusty Nail, an ice cream scoop of chicken salad on greens, some mandarin oranges and strawberries with balsamic and a blueberry muffin.  A tall glass of ice tea. Cash or check, no cards.   We walked down the block to a place we had driven by.  Joyce’s Antique Emporium at 494 Lincoln Avenue in the heart of downtown.  Oh my.  We could have spent hours there, everything so carefully arranged and classified. Things you might have had as a kid or your mom had or the neighbors or your grandmother.   I’m still  thinking about the set of Pyrex bowls I left there and am thinking about going back if they are still there. Afterwards we stopped by the Farmer’s Market booths and I bought some strawberries that I made into jam when I got home- Joy of Cooking recipe.  There was a shaved ice vendor.  J bought the perennial Bloodroot to plant in her wonderful garden.  We had fun checking out the antiques store with EVERYTHING.  The Pickers Show on the History Channel needs to come and do an episode from this place. I am serious.  We had the nicest conversation with the man minding the place and he was knowledgeable and full of great stories about the items in the store! The aluminum glasses on a blue coffee table outside the store caught our interest and we couldn’t get over the variety of items displayed. Canisters Depression glass, Kewpie Dolls, Betty Boop, swizzle sticks, an accordion, bugle, toys etc etc etc….See the slide show below. Call them at (412) 761-1288.
