My day out with Tricia
Today I traveled out to Hopkinton. It is only an hour away but for those of you that know me I am not one for "big roads". I folishly thought because of the time of day I went not many would be on the road. WRONG. I guess this is a pretty popular route. I luckily only needed to be on it for 16 miles. However being one that avoids the highway it seemed crazy to drive 65!!! LOL.... It was worth it and I am sure it will become quite normal to me in no time.
I made great time and was there a little early but Tricia the fashion plate that she is looked like a millon bucks. Her hair , makeup and Nails done like a movie star and flashing all her diamonds!! Quick hugs and giggles and we were off.
We stopped for a cup o joe and then went to a wonderful place ,Medway mill antiques & more. Oh the great stuff they had. Something for everyone. As we entered I saw the candles for sale and then you went into a prim gals heaven. baskets , vintage kitchen items. crocks, furniture. Tricia had her eye on a small green firkin but I am afraid at $90.00 it stayed there. She did pick up a wall box to remember the day . I found a vintage pin that brought back great childhood memories of rummage sales with my mom and going to first grade drapped in jewels. I did buy it and put it right on. I also picked up a peg rack made of old wood. You can never have too many of those.
We saw so many great pieces and took a few photos for our friends that couldn't join us.It was a wonderful day and I hope we will do it again soon.
