Flea & I took a detour from our everday routine and ended up in York, PA on Wednesday.
we visited my sweet friend Kathy Barrick at her wonderful ca. 1800's stone house ~
|Kathy & I|
|Flea & Kathy|

here are some snaps of her picture-perfect home
that just happens to be
|double front doors|

|H U G E barn out back!|
there is an inground pool just inside this picket fence...
imagine swimming around just outside of the cornfields?
and the inside.....
these are what I would call the Keeping Room or Parlor:
|be still my heart.|
here is her fabulous Dining Room...
the salmon colored walls sang to me!
|huge cupboard filled with Mullberry Transferware.... L O V E|

~ here's her little Mudroom at the back of the house:
and now here are some shot of the upstairs ~
|Kathy collects these: they are old French porcelain grave markers|
and they are FABulous ~
Flea & I slept in the room that also happens to be
where Kathy creates her sentimental and gorgeously beautiful jewelry ~
such GOOD vibes & energy in this whole house!
|other side of same room...|
Here's Mizz Flea,
sitting at Kathy's worktable :)
this room is the Master Bath...
Kathy holds a booth at the
Beaver Creek Antiques Mall
in Hagerstown, Maryland
where she sells her hand-picked goods ~
Jimmie Cramer (Season's at Seven Gates Farm co-author) also holds a few booths there
and of course we had to spend some time in their booths.
I highly recommend this antiques shop!!!
here is a small collection of little red calico dresses in Kathy's foyer/room
|a small smattering of Kathy's collection of apothecary jars|
|peaceful sheep, tin lanterns and old scissors....perfect & quiet|

While we were visiting,
Kathy asked that I be the one to draw a name for her Blog Giveaway...
so I did.

Kathy & I did alot of brainstorming while we were together,
and I hope in the near future we can share some exciting new with you all!!!
Don't forget that Kathy will be here at our Gathering show on September 21st
with her NEW cross stitch designs and jewelry ~

I am honored to call you friend
