DSC09696 (759x1024)I took a drive on Saturday to Smithfield, VA.  Yes, THAT Smithfield, home of the ham!  The old town section was lovely and so quaint.  It was lined with art, shops, antiques and restaurants.  Also, many historic homes.  It was one of those trips that fed the soul as well as the junking jones!

I would love to live in this house beyond the Crepe Myrtles.  I love that window on the 2nd floor.

Check out this lovely confection of a Victorian home.  Isn’t the Gingerbread fabulous!

This was the view over the hill at the corner of Main and Church Streets.  It was lovely! 







I managed to find a few trinkets and hit a few thrift shops, too.  I also had the best burger ever!  So, I will definitely be back again!
