Last summer (has it been two summers ago?), I visited my old friend Melissa at her home in Ohio. Melissa and I go way back. We grew up across the street from each other in Indiana and I've known her since we were both 3 years old, making her my oldest friend. I hadn't seen her for years when she emailed with an invitation to come and visit. It was a nice trip. I love the little village where she lives and I had no idea that part of the country is so beautiful. And her husband is an antiques dealer, so her beautiful turn-of-the-century home is filled with treasures.
I meant to blog about the trip, but never got around to it. I ran across these photos on my computer and rather liked them, so I decided to do it now. I hope you enjoy it.Tramp art box
If you live within a state or two, this area is worth visiting. It is gorgeous, pastoral and historic with excellent flea markets and antiquing. And Cincinnati is close by. A good Midwestern trip.
