Antiquing in the Adirondacks


Last week when Dad and I took our drive we stopped
 at this small but interesting antique shop in Long Lake.


Sweet corn!
Sweet vintage scale! 

We drove through Indian Lake where there were vendors
 set up with rustic mountain antiques and a farmer's market.


Bought a few of these beauties...
I will sorely miss this season's delicious home grown tomatoes...


Beautiful grain sack...


Lots of antlers...
I have a number of these at the camp...collected over the years.


Loved this old sign for sale...
Tons of snow in these mountains!


 Beautiful wood decoys...


Lovely silver and mother of pearl fruit knives...


Cool vintage bicycle...


 Lumberjack boots!


Marine antiques on exhibit in the mountains?
You just never know what you will find!


And...I had to leave you with just a few pictures of the lake...
so beautiful and peaceful this time of year.


Early morning is the best time of day...


Time for reflection, meditation and prayer.


Wishing you a peaceful and calm day.


Enjoy each moment!
:)

Beautiful lake photos.... Makes my heart ache with the memories of just that. Autumn at the lake at my Grandparents cottage.
Few area as beautiful as the northern mountains in Fall.

Dear Laura,
Well, as usual, I want it all....I am loving the scales and the grain sack, the mother of pearl fruit knives are beautiful and even the tomatoes look as if they will taste divine !
The lake looks majestic and so calm. I love the way the mist hangs over it.
Enjoy every minute of your time there. XXXX

How wonderful that you are spending so much time with your dad, Laura. It must be deepening the bond between you even more.

As always, your images are quite lovely...especially those of the lake. It looks like a such beautiful place for "reflection, meditation, and prayer."

Blessings,
