Seen Around Gay New Hope...........


As I mentioned before the Capital Street Duo, my good friends from Harrisburg, have been to visit the Casa twice now in the last month. The Dame is a avid collector of, well, lets just say everything, I don't have all night, I have a cock-a-tail awaiting. Oh, by the way, that is the Dame above with a mermaid statue, which overlooks the hamlet. When they visited, we spent both times in New Hope, a fun little hamlet. New Hope is just outside Philadelphia by 40 mins. But it is almost in the Casa's backyard. New Hope was originally settled as a artist colony, for the like that weren't welcomed in the usual circles. These days it is inhabited by open minded people, artists, musicians, tons of gays, drag queens, a small tranny community, (which held their monthly party at the Raven last weekend, but that's another story), actors from the Big Apple, and all kinds of odd characters that all have stories. See pool post from Monday. And everybody gets along! And there are just as many pubs, fine dinning places, galleries, vintage stores, vintage funeral shops, chic clothing boutiques and a hand full of sex shops!!! Where you can get anything!!!!! Lets have a look of some of these things I saw that day around this wonderful town., starting with the bargin of the day........


  Various signs outside of some of the shops..... hmmmmmmmmmm.

I find this window box very peaceful..


An oddity on the street......


Mutely, waiting for his owner getting coffee....

The main sign for Tear Drops Memories. I think the sign is clear what they carry. All and everything for funerals, caskets, skulls, bones, anything morbid having to do with death. Pretty cool shop. Bizarre, but cool!



Horse carriage by New Hope Playhouse. Not the Mistress's mode of transport. I've not taken to driving my own buggy yet.


Playhouse water fall


My favorite home in all of New Hope.



A hunk drive by.....and I didn't get shot!


Vintage enamel pins displayed like a window box....how clever...... these would also make for fabulous ear rings!


Broadmoor Antiques. Hands down my favorite antiques place. And the proprietor is quite the handsome hunk. He gave me just a few quick glances of a smile.


LOVE this urn filled with the sea shells. MUST HAVE!



The Swallows of Lambertville sign with detailed info. Get you minds out of the gutter!



The walk from New Jersey back to PA. Here is the Capital Street Duo, before going to receive dinner with the Mistress at the fabulous Marsha Browns. The Dame is on the right. She is a proper queen on how to carry her parcels! Meanwhile her handsome husband , I believe, is relieved he got out of this day cheap, with springing on two vinatge pillows the Dame saw.  Nevermind she didn't get the $5 box of matches!


So y'all, if anyone wants to come visit, as I told blogger pal Becca, the whole South wing of the Casa du Borghese is open and ready.....just drop me a telegram first! I want to make sure there are no under garments lying about first. Tootles!
