Sneak peeks from our first overnight road trip!

Warning – eye candy!!
Last weekend, into Monday, Audrey and I had took our first overnight trip for the magazine. And boy, we sure had a wonderfully busy whirlwind 3 day trip!
Last year, we got photo’s of a wonderful spacious antique filled reproduction home in a small rural town in PA. The home looked amazing and I knew it was perfect for the magazine and a home I just HAD to see in person, but sadly it was just too far for a one day trip and overnights were not in the picture yet ~ no pin intended.
THEN I saw the name of the town where the home is located and I got VERY excited!! You see coincidentally, very dear long time friends of my hubby and I live in that same small town. Because of that, I thought at the time ‘someday when DH and I visit Pat and Joe, I can shoot that home.’ I didn’t know when we would make the trip again but I knew we would sometime in the future. So I mentioned that to the homeowner Diane, and she very graciously said whenever that happened, she would welcome me into her home!  How sweet was that??  079
So flash forward several months and Kristine said that Audrey and I could make an occasional overnight trip  and I knew just where we should go for our first one. I shared the home with the editorial team and they agreed it was perfect for the magazine and Audrey and I  jumped on the chance to make the long drive! And we are VERY happy that we did!! 
Not only did we meet the wonderful homeowners Diane and Alan as well as two of their sons…204
…and not only did we have the privilege of seeing their absolutely stunning home….445
…and their extensive collections of primitive antiques…307
…but we also got to see some of the pretty PA countryside…
…visit Diane’s favorite antique store….430
…AND we got to spend time with some of our out of state prim friends as well! 438
Thank you to Diane and Alan for inviting us into your wonderful home and sharing your love of primitive décor with us. We had a great time and look forward to visiting you again in the future ~ log cabin or not!
Unfortunately I don’t have time for all the other details right here or right now, so you will have to go to my personal blog Behind My Red Door later this weekend to see a few more sneak peeks of this great home, and find out who we saw and what we did! You can find my blog ~here~!
Right now I have to pack my photography equipment because tomorrow we are off for another shoot of another amazing home ~ this time much closer to home!
And do come back here early next week for sneak peeks from tomorrow’s shoot AND for our end of October blog giveaway! Two reasons it will be worth your while to stop by again!!
Until then, warm hugs and prim blessings, Linda

Oh!!! I actually called hubby to the computer to look at this amazing home's goodies! I'm drooling! And it's here in PA where we live. You have to tell us where this primitive shop is that Diane likes because we are always on the lookout for them! Our favorite is The Black Crow in Williamsport! In fact, we were there a week ago. Another is The Painted Cupboard in Wellsboro if you are ever in either town.
Going to check out your blog too!

Happy Primitive Weekend!

Linda; I can't believe how lucky you are to have the opportunity to see such wonderful homes. I can barely wait for the next issue, much less one "down the road." Thank you for all your hard work and if you ever need an assistant...LOL

Another wonderful post...with so much yummies to admire. I would certainly agree...this Inspiring home is for sure worth the 3 day trip.

Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
