On A Whim

On Wednesday my friend, Mary, and I decided to go on an adventure. We were driving down a country road near Leesburg, Virginia when Mary spots a pink polka dot silo and a sign that says “Antiques”. On a whim we pull in. After taking the obligatory photo with the silo we discover the name of the place is On A Whim.

This is the first thing we see — it shouldn’t be a problem!


We notice some hats:


And vintage postcards (and you know how much I love vintage postcards):IMG_0489An old book, an old trunk, and a cool needlepoint bench:


It’s a place filled with nooks and crannies:


But then, be still my heart, the prettiest room I’ve ever seen in an antique store. I want to move in. Do you think they’d let me? IMG_0501

Pink dresses, pink hats, and more pink dresses. Swoon!

There was cool stuff outside too!

I didn’t want to leave. Goodbye pink silo — I’ll be back.

Readers: Do you have a favorite place you like to go for an adventure?

    What a great find! Isn’t it fun to stumble upon places like this? I hope you or Mary brought home one of those beautiful dresses. As far as adventure – I’ll go anywhere!

    Sooooo fun! Sooooooooooo jealous! I’ll have to trek out there sometime. Fall is a good time for Leesburg – leaf viewing and antiquing in one trip!
