Summer Travels

The boys and I went to visit my family in New Jersey last week.  In the short time that we were there, we visited Manhattan, New Haven Connecticut and the Poconos in Pennsylvania.  We made sure to visit the Jersey Shore and went to Sandy Hook.  It was sooooo hot while we were there, mostly 97, and very humid.

We made sure to visit lots of thrift stores (we found a new one called Bo's Attic at 455 Highway 36 N, Port Monmouth NJ), garage sales and one of my favorite flea markets in Saylorsburg Pennsylvania.

The trunk was filled!  It took me 3 days to unpack all of the treasures that I brought back.

Tomorrow is the last day of the McHenry County Fair in Woodstock.  We had entries in vegetables and crafts.  My pillow got 2nd place and my felted purse got a blue ribbon.  I was so excited.  I love this time of year when the fair comes around.  Starting on Tues Aug 11 is the Boone County fair in Belvidere IL and the Wisconsin State Fair is already in progress.

August 14, Friday, is a rummage sale at the Joyful Harvest Church on Johnsburg Road in Johnsburg starting at 8am.

Happy treasure hunting!


  1. Milena,
    How fun to go back to NJ with the boys for a little fun. I bet you found some great treasures on your trip. We were going to go up to Elkhorn today but with the rain we decided to sleep in. I have so many projects to get done around here today. I do love that flea market up there. Have a great start to the new week.

    1. Hi Kris, we did have lots of fun! I am keeping some of the treasures that I found and the others will be at the Carriage House. We went to Elkhorn today and as always, came home with a few treasures. I too have so much to do around here that the rest of the week I'll be trying to catch up. Have a great week! Milena
