Salem, Massachusetts

Back from our trip up to Massachusetts, it was wonderful. Roamed around Cambridge, Salem, visited other little towns such as Rockport and Gloucester. Even though it rained I walked all around with my umbrella sipping hot coffee and browsing in shops. There are a lot of vintage shops in MA! I got a few new things as well, such as a pretty old apron with green piping and pockets sewn from hankies, a mini stash of fun repro 30’s fabrics and some new sketchbooks. In Salem I went to the Essex-Peabody Museum and spent my time viewing both the sailing and folk art. The graveyards in and around Salem were interesting as well. I am so much inspired by the way that the stones are carved and all the folk heads. I posted my favorite one here, the grave of Polly Felt. What a terrific name.
