A Colorful Getaway
We just returned from a long weekend in Vermont and scrolling through my photos, I noticed a theme: colors. Here are a few of my favorites:
I’m such a sucker for all things vintage. I collect mid-century typewriters, rotary phones, and school-themed goodies (globes, lockers, wall maps, crayon boxes, and more). While I loved these phones I found at an antique emporium in Bennington, Vermont, the prices were more than I was willing to spend. (I later found the orange phone on eBay for $40.)
We spent Saturday morning feasting our way through the Brattleboro Farmers Market and the produce and baked goods weren’t only gorgeous but were also delicious. (And we should know, as we sampled most all of the baked goodies available!) We hit the Dorset Farmers Market on Sunday after a bracing dip in the Dorset Quarry.
When I was a kid, it was an annual summer tradition to buy a pair of Minnetonka moccasins (Thunderbird style, as pictured above) at the end of our summer vacations to Long Beach Island, NJ. I would agonize for days over the color choices (white, red, navy) and would wear them all school-year long.
And lastly, I’m real sucker for Irish accents and lads with Irish coloring. This friendly guy was so cute that I had to get photo…and my hubby didn’t mind at all.
