May's Note Card Party at Vee's/Small Town PA

Annville Cleona.  Two small towns, but the names are often just put together like that.  After all, they ARE right next to each other.  And they are both old.  And Cleona is pronounced Clay own' uh.

 This darling little place was added on to an old stone house.  I found it delightfully charming.


The picket fence looks as good chippy as not, if you ask me!


This old shop is charming inside.  We had ice cream. Oh look.  There's Mister enjoying his milkshake!


Gorgeous old stone home.  With picket fence (pictured above).

Joining that monthly fete hosted by Vee!  Go and check it out, even better, join in!  And while you are at it, make sure to visit Kathleen for White Wednesday!!!

Have a marvelous day,
Carol

Hi Carol, Love that hot dog house photo, and the stone house. Very interesting photos!

Vee said...

(I re-linked you to this post instead of April's.)

Wow! This is one cute community. I am sure that you had a lot of photos to choose from and you chose very well. Love that sweet fence...the post design is more attractive to me than a sharp picket.

Kati said...

I want to visit these small towns. They look so inviting!

What a gorgeous stone house, but the little victorian that's attached and that marvelous old fence just tops it! What a fabulous place to live,
(and eat ice cream!)
I'm new to your blog, but will be following now.
Hugs,

Oh, this town (these towns?) looks soooo charming! A family member used to live in Pennsylvania, and we discovered so many quaint towns when we visited.
The country store looks like a blast from the past! And I do love a picket fence, painted or not!

(Now I must go check out "Our Home's Transformation"!)

Hi Carol,

These towns are absolutely charming! Do you live in one of them? I've seen your blog before and wanted to let you know that my husband and I lived in a Sears Kit Home in Greensboro, NC. It was the first house we ever bought. It was a bungalow style and was built in 1924. It had lots of big windows, tall ceilings, wide moldings, and hardwood floors throughout. It was a great starter home.

I love all your note card photos. I think the last one is my favorite; I love the stone houses that seem to be a hallmark of Pennsylvania architecture. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments.

Carol, These pics are so beautiful. I have always loved stone houses. I am just gaga over the Hot Dog House. The storefront reminds me of my Mom and Dad's old neighborhood store. Different name of course. I just love the sign.
I would buy these note cards.
Blessings,

Lorrie said...

Beautiful stone buildings are timeless. Love these photos.
