If you go to Pennsylvania

you HAVE to go to Hershey!

It is an amazing place!  Lots of fun, lots of chocolate.  I mean, like more than you want to eat!

The street lights are Hershey Kisses!

I think Candy has a picture of me by the sign....but trust me, I really was there!  I got the cutest gift for my grands.  A bottle of Hershey syrup with their picture on the label.  They probably have used it all up by now!!

Interesting....but for me?  Uh, that would be a NO!

After intermission....

I am going to try to show a bit more of my trip.  You know this going back and forth to the cabin is keeping me hopping!!

After 3 times trying to get a plane flight out of South Carolina....(whole nother situation!)
I flew in to Pennsylvania.

On the way to Candy's home for the next 10 days.....we of course, stopped at a barn sale!

They also sold fresh produce!

 Seriously, I know many of us are on the ground writhing right about just do NOT see this in AZ very often IF ever!

 Oh Lord, control me....

 I have this apple cookie jar, it was my Grandma's.

Anyone want antlers?....they will only sell the whole wall...not just one piece...

I should have bought you know what they are?
They are the tops of electric poles that the jar insulators screwed onto...

Shipping would have been outrageous..... but one can drool!

Here we go to the floor again....and this was just part of the windows!

Candy in the giant Adirondack.....she wasn't done laughing at me for going to the Porta John.  Hey, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!!

God's Creature Wink!

Yesterday coming back from Payson Walmart we saw this!  In the middle of the afternoon!

 Oh he had friends too!
I was snapping like crazy with my Iphone, but it was hard, they were moving, we were moving....

That was a God wink for sure!

We interupt Travel pics for this!

I pulled out the ole sewing machine and made this!

 It is made from a linen towel that I found back woods someplace in PA.  We are calling our little place in Payson, our cabin, although, technically it isn't.   I know so many of you can quilt and sew up a storm, but I was happy with my little pillow....

Ceekay and Duke

No, not THE Duke.....But Bush's Duke

We stopped at the store and home of Bush's.  I just love this picture of Rose and I.  Almost a 40 year friendship!  I am blessed!

These are replicas of all the bean labels.  Yes, I bought one!

This was the cutest display.  This is the original sink from the family home.

Did you know they also had a general store?

One of the chandies from the home.

 Loved the wallpaper on the ceiling

This is a print of the general store.  I asked the gentleman giving the tour if they sold them, but they do not.

I am standing in the kitchen.  This is usually me in my kitchen...saying, wanna go to a restaurant?

This is where they make the beans now.

Too cute.....!!!
They have a history of the Bush's in the store.  It is fabulous!  You could really spend time reading all the info.

This just cracked me up.  It is like Mission Impossible protection on the Secret Family Recipe!

Oh, and by the way.....the print.  The gentleman giving the tour, gave me a numbered print.  I was honored and blessed!
