A few weeks ago we drove 3 hours north to hang out with my family for a few days in beautiful Dushore PA. Then we drove 3 hours south to Ocean City MD to hang out with my husband’s family.

Here are some photos from Ocean City:

My husband’s family surrounds all of their traditions with food, and Ocean City is no exception. Thrashers fries and Fractured Prune doughnuts (both pictured above), crabs, Fishers popcorn, Wockenfuss, and Dumsers are all necessary accompaniments to the experience. As a matter of fact, I’m not sure there would be any experience if not for the food!

Dushore was lovely and peaceful. We checked out the Sullivan County fair (demolition derby!) and took a ride on the Hiawatha riverboat, which takes a little tour on the Susquehanna River. We also went to a wonderful antiques place called the Red Barn (I’m not sure if that is the exact name, but it’s a red barn).

Of course I had to buy something. There was no way I was going to leave without treasures. There was so much to choose from – dishes, kitchen utensils, linens, knick knacks, jewelry, clothes….I finally settled on some fantastic women’s magazines from the 1930s, a couple ladies’ club books (so cool!), and (bestill my heart!) vintage sewing accessories. Take a peek….

Aren’t they fabulous? I have an idea to make some tags with the ladies’ club books. I just adore old stuff!

Thanks for stopping by!
