Two Sisters Antiques and Collectibles

I worked on Saturday afternoon and since I was in the area of West Medford, I decided to stop by Two Sister Antiques and Collectibles at 473 High St. I had been to the store years ago and I decided it was time to go back.

I spent at least an hour chatting with one of the sisters. Theresa used to be a banker and she's obviously passionate about antiques so we had a lot in common. She opened her shop 9 years ago and she and her sister have built an award winning business.

This chandelier would look wonderful in my bedroom. The white chandelier against the blue walls and white mouldings in my bedroom would be stunning.

I am always drawn to whimsical pieces like this little guy.

What have we here in this cabinet?

Some lovely pieces.

I asked if I could take photos and write about her shop in my blog. She said only if I said something nice. Well, I told her I don't trash anyone except for the estate sale guy and of course, Sears. Plus what could I possibly say that is negative?

Theresa wanted me to take a photo of this desk. It was very nice.

She had interesting pieces.

Wish I had a spot for this settee.

And this chandelier was gorgeous.

Vintage dresses and a dress forms.

Too bad I don't have a piano to put under this victorian piano lamp.

Are you wondering what I bought? You know I bought something. Well, I purchased a teapot (surprise, surprise) and matching teacup, and creamer. I didn't have time to take a photo of it before this post. You will see it on my table very soon.

And if you find yourself in West Medford, Massachusetts, please stop by Two Sister Antiques and Collectibles. Tell them Elaine sent you amd maybe I'll get another banker's discount.

UPDATE: I received an email from Theresa, one of the shop owners.
She is offering my followers a 10% discount on anything in the shop. Just mention Elaine and the blog. Happy Shopping! And by the way, they will be closed the week of May 2nd for vacation.


Yes, that's a place I could LOVE! Thanks for the tour, I enjoyed it a lot. xo Lidy

Oh what a lovely antique store! I guessed you would buy a teapot. You are THE perfect tea hostess after all. :) I went to a lovely antique marketplace with my mom while she was here and I'll post pictures soon! :)

Hope all is well with you and kitties. :)

Oooh, that looks like a shop I would enjoy spending some time in! I'll definitely keep it in mind if I'm ever in that area!

I think mandarin oranges would be just as good as the orange sections in the onion/orange salad! Let me know if you make it with them, and how it turned out!

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 …
