calling all Maryland peeps

Wow, first let me apologize for being away so long. I was just getting back into the groove of posting every few days, too. And then I got busy and, well, you know how it is. There's been so much to do outdoors to get ready for summer. I've been washing the floor tiles of my screened porch today—a hot job because it's more than 80 degrees and very humid. Not fun!

I've also been in talks with the owner of a new craft co-op near where I live about being part of the venture. It won't be officially opening until next month so I'll tell you more about it as we get closer to the grand opening date. Of course, I've been sewing like mad to make sure I have enough product. I'll also be selling some vintage as well—including baby things—so I've been embroidering like mad to finish some of the embroidered projects that I've started and not yet finished.

And here's where the Maryland connection comes in. My husband is going to be working in Baltimore for a while, traveling back and forth on weekends. He'll probably be home most of those weekends but not all. So, I'll be coming through Maryland (I think it's I83 from York, PA) down) and spending some time in Baltimore this summer. Any suggestions for antiquing stops along the drive or things to do and places I just have to check out in Baltimore would be much appreciated. Anything that involves a day trip—like Havre de Grace, for example—is also doable. If you've been reading this blog for a while, you already know the kinds of vintage I like. I also like fun shops, nice restaurants, cool museums, and outdoorsy places like botanical gardens. Thank you in advance :)

Baltimore is an awesome town. I don't live in Maryland anymore but will again in a few years.

In Catonsville, you will find the Stitching Post, a fabulous cross stitch (and some needlepoint) shop; next door to the Seminole Sampler, a very nice quilting store.

Fell's point right in the city is a mecca for antiquing. There used to be a Knitting/yarn store there as well.

Google your heart out and have a great time. Spend some time finding the best crab cakes. Phillips at Harbor Place is a nice place to start your taste tests of some of the best seafood in the world.

Baltimore has a lot of wonderful ethnic neighborhoods, with resturants to please any palate.

Welcome to Balmer, hon!

If you are wiling to get up really early, you can hit the flea market in Harper's Ferry WV. It is probably a good 2 hour drive from Baltimore. But a nice one since you never know what you will find. And you can fun in Harper's Ferry afterwards wanding around the buildings and businesses. And it isn't that far from there over to Shepherdstown. Lots of nice little shops there. And wandering around downtown Frederick can be fun. Only an hour from Baltimore.

Just remember that it get hot and muggy here during the summer.

And you cant miss with the Naval Academy in Annapolis. Nice eye candy!
