The Pineapple

The Pineapple  has been the symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. The legend began with the sea captain of New England, who sailed among the Caribbean Islands and returned to the colonies bearing cargo of fruits spices, and rum.

According to the legend , the captain would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside his home to let his friends know of his safe return from the sea. The Pineapple was an invitation for them to visit, share his food and drink and listen to tales of his voyage.

So in honour of your visits to the Melon Patch Weekend Oct 14th and 15 th. I promise no tales of my voyage .

Another giveaway will be a hand painted Welcome sing on slate.

 

I have been fan of pineapple symbols for many years, I was given a small brass one by a friend and it mounted just by my front door at my farmhouse.

I also have pineapple planters one which hangs out side the Melon Patch Store and use it all year long , in the summer it is planted with seasonal flowers  , in the fall with a fall  arrangement and then as the winter approaches with winter greens to celebrate the holidays . These are available for purchase.

Road Trip September 25 2011, 0 Comments

 

Saturday was a last minute decision to take a road trip .

I had made contact with a supplier that I have been trying to reach all summer, a hard man to reach he often goes to Europe on buying trips and sell at the  Brimfield Market.

 

The day beautiful, his barn amazing, and if I had only won the lottery I would have come home with it all,  but no lottery and a small car made the decision for me.

 

My mission to buy dough bowls, I love them and  have fond memories form  my younger days. I grew up in Croatia and my mother would bake bread weekly, and she would let the dough rise in a similar type bowl.

A few pictures for inspiration: I love them they have charm and history and  are multi purpose.

 

 

If you are interested in a dough bowl you will find them at the Melon Patch , or I can send you an individual photo of the bowls I purchased with size and price.

Legacy Hardware

On the way back we stopped at the wonderful Legacy Hardware , and if  you are a fan of Sara’s House ( Sara Richardson ) there is a clip of her outside buying a tub and inside  buying Lighting.

I had met Christine and her daughter earlier in the week, they came to the Melon Patch to buy chalk paint, and by Saturday they had painted two pieces and have them in the shop for sale. Great job!!! a great fit for their store.

Funny how the world is small , I have been a customer of theirs for years and now we have even more in common, their great stuff and my chalk paint, a winning team I’d say, and nice people to boot.

Be sure to make a trip it well worth it and truly inspiring.

This is an amazing place, you could spend the whole day they have everything you would ever  want for vintage restoration.

Here are a few images from their website. www.legacy.com
