I've been wanting to visit a little town called Cold Spring, NY. I've been there several times but never with Jim and he'd never been there at all. It's about a 50 minute drive from our house and it's so worth it.
|This sign was on a telephone pole next to where we parked. Of course I had to get a photo of it!!!! : )|
|Cold Spring is loaded with big, old houses with the most beautiful architecture.|
|It seemed like everywhere you looked there were lush gardens and flower pots filled with the most brilliant flowers!!|
After a wonderful lunch at Hudson Hil's Cafe, we walked around town and visited a few little antique shops. There were so many beautiful things that I would've bought in a second if I was in buying mode but I've actually been in selling/purging mode. However, it certainly doesn't hurt to look!!
|I love jadite and the one antique shop we went to had the most beautiful pieces. I fell in love with the bowl below.|
|And there was a huge selection of candy molds!!|
|My hubby found a bunch of old tools that reminded him of the ones he and his father used when he was growing up in Tennessee.|
|I found this wonderful vintage pail that's used to keep fish in once they're caught. I would've brought this home in a heartbeat if my father was still alive. He was an avid fisherman and it would be the perfect Fathers' Day gift for him. : (|

It was a wonderful day and we look forward to going back again soon. I think the next time I'd like to wander away from Main Street a little bit to see what else is going on around the town. And to look at more of those gorgeous old houses!!!!
Many blessings for a happy and peaceful Saturday ~ Wendy
