GREEN ACRES IS THE PLACE TO BE

While I may have fought and screamed 15 years ago to leave a urban environ, to move to Bucks County, I , the Lisa Douglas, has fallen head over heels for the area now. What a lovely Saturday morning I have had.....just taking in the scene while out to do the Saturday marketing. Nothing like real local produce....
The flowers yielded enough for two arrangements
The morning started with breakfast, watching titmice on the sill...a mother and baby...
 
A trip to the People's Store to shop the wears..
Thought of Cali Boi when I saw this!!!!
Sparkly shining balls will always get my attention....
These...these in an antique market? I now feel old.
A couple weeks ago I came across these vintage finds....and thought they would be an absolute must for the rides here on roads in Bucks County! How swank....vintage Jag......
But the vintage MG has a gin and bar basket on the back, decisions, decisions.....
 
Some various sights and signs seen in New Hope....
mannequin display in an alley
Were as gay as they come
 
Lovely home
a typical WTF moment in New Hope

How cool is this home along the canal????
 
And one has got to love the shops signs around here....most of which won't even allow kids under 13 in.
 
Boy I love this town!

  6. Loving that house along the canal..how cool is that? I always enjoy trips too New Hope, no where like it. I also enjoyed those titmouse pictures, they are so cute. My cat Amelia loved them too.

  7. I always enjoy your market day posts, Maddie. Your photographs and descriptions are such a contrast to the usual dismal portrayal of the USA in the media and by a certain 'republican' dope.

    If anything could coax me from the woods, it would be a tour of your wonderful, eclectic community. The highlight, of course, would be the casa with your fresh produce, flower arrangements, apothecary jars, avian visitors - and stunning selection of gins.

  9. Looks like a great day to me! Loving the tour and pictures, And those signs gave me a good chuckle...you'd never see them here. My one memory of Bucks County was all the antique cars driving the back road ways...so cool.

  10. Why when I buy flowers do my arrangements never look like yours? Yep....I need to move.

  11. Loving the market basket! Good boy....not using plastic bags and supporting local farmers. What a feast for the eyes your pictures are...with pinch of humor

    ReplyDelete
  12. Great tour!! Loves a town with a sense of humor. Most humor around here plays off being radioactive...

  13. You can get head for $4.95?? My God, it sounds like my youthful Hollywood days.

    I love ALL of the photos - - and I've always wanted a vintage MG. Thanks for the tour!

  14. It does look bucolic and charming, but for me, it's all about those beautiful Deco chairs.

    1. bucolic...a word not used very often...we used use it more often. And aren't those chairs heavenly?

  15. I loved the tour, and if that MG is missing I don't know anything about it. ;-)

  16. I too love these post when you do them. Mu morning too starts with the birds even though I can't get that close. The flowers are so colorful and pretty. Saturday is also one of our market days....always nice to get out and see our favorite vendors. But those antique cars really steal the show!! One of those parked at the Raven would set the tails wagging!!!

    1. when he pulls up at the raven, ALL the tails start a-waggin', a-growin', a-showin'!

  17. Unattended children will be sold as slaves?!?! Where was this sign when we had our first? Just kidding! What a very cool area and nothing like good fresh produce I say.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm still digesting the news from the previous post about Tilda Swinton.Hmmmmmmm... But this post is pure heaven on the senses. I could make myself right at home in your neck of the woods, and that unusual home along the canal. Nice to know also that one can still get head for $4.95.

  19. What a very cool town. I would love it there. We did our "escape to Hooter[s]ville" a long time ago. It was charming, but not nearly (well, NOT AT ALL) cool and enlightened. A woman from the Welcome Wagon arrived at our door and, when we made her understand we were a gay couple, I thought she was going to swallow her tonsils. That was 1989. Times have changed!

  20. What a great tour! I'll take the Vintage Jag and the two chairs please.
    Overnight them if you will.

  21. Looks like great fun, I go to the farmer's market nearly every weekend -

    1. Nothing like getting to see the same farmers and tasting their wares. Summer freshness!

      Delete
    2. Ah, it is too scorching to garden anything here until autumn... Before then, you get very skimpy, under-grown, anemic-looking things. And, who wants a skimpy thing??? You are very lucky to have farmers who allow you to taste them! ;-)

      Happy Monday, mistress! Many hugs to you for a wonderful week!!

  22. Great post!!!! Very cool area, those signs.....but those vintage cars are so chic!!! Amazing looking style you just don't see anymore.
