Otherwise known as antiquing.
Or, when I can't be bothered to form three full syllables, tiquin'.
I got to see some really cool old pieces.
Folk-art and rugs.
Creepy things that ought never to have been created.
Artwork that caused a thin spittle of drool to run down from the corners of my mouth. I felt something akin to hunger pangs when I gazed upon them. It was like looking through the window of a pastry shop. I wanted to cry out, "I'll take the lot!", but alas, I have children to feed.
And it is birthplace and home of the Wyeths.
Andrew, Andrew, Andrew.
I love you.
Will you marry me?
It won't bother me that you're dead.
It won't bother me that you would be 94 if you weren't dead.
I love you.
PS: I apologize for the poor quality of these pictures.
They were taken with my phone.
I do not have an iPhone

When I was in college and worked at a bank, I had an older colleague by the name of Lillian who had a phrase: "The only cloth coat in a room of furs".
That's me and my phone. The cloth coat.
PPS: Although I am a fan of Andrew Wyeth's, I will have the honesty to admit to you that I could not be certain if he was dead or alive (if I'd had to bet, I'da put money on dead). Lucky for you, I know how to use the Google on the internet machine so I could do some fact-checking, and I learned that he passed on three years ago at the age of 91.
Integrity. It's my middle name.
Don't forget, I will love you forever if you throw me a vote on Top Mommy Blogs. You know the drill by now, don't you? Just click the juggling chick and you've voted. You can vote every day till like, forever.
In case you didn't know it, I'm like the queen of blog-hoppin' lately. It's kind of like square dancing but without the dated outfits, smelly gym, and elderly caller.
