Train day and an antique shop.

Grand girls and their Mom took in Train day with us on Saturday.

I think the crowds are getting more each year.

in front of a screen and of course the sun was shining right in Genevieves eyes

A neat art shop.  Re Funk It.  Some neat things in here like this phone Genevieve really liked.
She never saw one like it and Opa was explaining that we had one like that and she, I believe thought there was really a light bulb on the end.
This one of course is made into a lamp.

This picture taken outside of the shop 

I thought this was so cute made with hand clippers and hoe it looks to be

How about this little doggy with horseshoes and golf clubs and a manual drill I guess it is.

Curb sitting lunch

Genevieve wanted to see inside a fire engine

Fine vintage cars on display

later in the evening I went to a vintage shop and purchased a vintage table cloth that I will use on Christmas and a cherub that I will probably put into a wreath.

I like these candle holders with greenery and  candle.   I didn't get these but they gave me an idea.


  1. Looks like a fun place to visit.

  2. You came away with lots of fun ideas to make your home so pretty for the holidays.

  3. Dearest Betsy,
    That no doubt was a very fun time for you and your grands!
    We loved seeing the Virginian locomotive with one other in front of a long double stack train while in the Shenandoah Valley.
    Sending you hugs,

  4. Betsy,
    Looks like you had a great time!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  5. People can be so inventive. That telephone is something else and wasn't that long ago was it really? Looks like you had a great time with those darling girls. Have a great week :)

  6. We did have a good time for sure.

  7. That was fun trip. The kids will enjoy it.

  8. That looks like a fun day. My daughter Andee and I are going to Raleigh next Friday for Vintage Market Days. Lots of pretty things in the ads, so we are looking forward to it. I would love to have that old hand drill that doggie is made from. Don't know why I have always wanted one. I like the dog too.
