Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Visiting Lancaster was such a treat!

I thought of you guys a lot while visiting the junk shops.

Wouldn't this be wonderful to own!

There was so many places to shop... so little time... and NO room in the van to bring anything home.

This would be a perfect place for my garden tools. It looks like it wouldn't be too hard to build...

I love this rustic parents used to live in a log cabin so this type of furniture always catches my eye.

We only spent a few hours shopping in order to make time for some back road Amish views. Enjoy!

A friend of mine suggested this restaurant. She didn't tell me we'd be eating elbow to elbow with strangers...
It turned out to be a wonderful experience for our family. And the food was delicious!  And yes, there was shoo fly pie!
We spent about 4 hours in Lancaster... NOT enough time! 
I hope we can go back one day for a real vacation.

I hope you were inspired!
Thanks for stopping by Thrift My House.

Arlington House

Last week my husband had an unexpected business trip to Pennsylvania. We decided to take the opportunity and get away for a few days. Along the way, we stopped at a few landmarks. We stopped by Arlington National Cemetery. What a beautiful place! 

This majestic home was on the property.

Arlington House.

Can you imagine coming home to this everyday?

I loved walking through this house. Just imagine the history. 
We were touring with several people so I had to take quick photos. I hope you enjoy them.

 I have to admit the artwork was kind of creepy...
Did anything catch your eye?
 I'll be back later this week with our visit to Lancaster P.A.
I hope you were inspired!
