Historic Hope

IMG 0266  1

Last week while traveling the back roads on our way to our Miata Run we happened to drive through the historic little town of Hope, New Jersey. It oozes small town charm with its old buildings and stone houses. One of my biggest wishes is to someday live in a stone house. 

We stopped and parked on the main street and browsed this cute little antique store. The prices were incredibly low but we decided we didn't any more "stuff" as our house is already pretty full of like kinds of things. Those old wooden deck loungers were tempting, I must say.

This is the Long House which is a preserved structure.

I loved the old houses!

Hanging shutters on stone is not an easy job.
