Daytrip to Sage Farm Antiques

A friend of a friend told me about a fantastic place for antiques. I love to go antiquing so I took a vacation day on Friday so I could see for myself.

My friend Kim joined me and we made the trip north to North Hampton, New Hampshire to check out Sage Farm Antiques. It only took about 1 hour and 1 toll to get there. The theme for the weekend was Over the River and Through the Woods.

This dress form was one of the first items I saw so I knew I was going to love this place. Kim and I both wanted the dress form but we decided to spend out dollars elsewhere.

I love anything to do with skating but these skates did not come home with me.

I thought this scale would be a fun addition to my kitchen but I didn't even price it.

Although I love this. I think it might be a little over the top for my home.

Every display was so interesting. This picnic basket had a tea set with it, cute!

Yes, of course I bought some vintage ornaments. I couldn't resist!

Cool doors and windows. If only I had the room!

How could you not go inside this place?

You know this went home with me.

Here's a view of the property. Perhaps I should have started with this photo.

After all the shopping madness, Kim and I went for breakfast at the Village Pancake House in Rowley. We were starving at this point. We each had a full breakfast and then we split an order of cinnamon pancakes! Ok it only amounted to one each and Kim took the other one home.

I would eat my shoe if it had cinnamon on it!

I got some really great things at Sage Farm and one of the items I bought I will post about very soon. I just don't have the photos yet, but, stay tuned.


Jeesh Elaine, I wish I'd known you would be in the area, I would have come to meet you! SFA isn't too far from me.

Glad you had a good visit. Can't say I've ever stopped by but they sure do have some good stuff! Wonder if my parents still have their old ornaments??? Hmmm....

I think I was at that antique store a year ago last summer. It sure looks familiar, and I know we antiqued a lot in New Hampshire. Can't wait to see what you bought. It's sure cold in Colorado - hope you are staying warm. Sally

Hi, I'm only now catching up on your blog. It's wonderful. I love cinammon also. On everything. I love figure skating too. I took group lessons for a few years not too long ago. I can't wait for the spring to visit Sage Farm Antiques.

They have a shop in Maine called Cattail Antiques ( or something) which is a lovely shop as well! I haven't been to Rowley to the Pancake House in years, probably over 30, scary is that??

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.

The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.

Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.

Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.

The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.

Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.

2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.

3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
