You know how I love all things vintage...well, last week I had my fill when I went to visit the Glenview Folk Museum in Ballinamore, countly Leitrim.
This is a private collection of over 7,000 artifacts large and small. We were shown around by the lovely owner Mr Kennedy and it was such a treat. He very kindly let me take photos which is unusual in such places and also told us to bring in the dogs as it was too hot in the car for them.
Here are some of the photos I took.
Look Colleen!!! the telephone exchange on the left came from Strokestown, your home place. It was probably there when you folks were.

The old pub
A pretty thatched cottage on the grounds that can be rented by tourists
When I got home I painted my picket fence emerald green and the roses look so lovely against it at the moment. Oooh look at the top right hand side...my own green milk churn. I must put some flowers in it.
This weekend we will be working at a huge charity fete where I will find lots of lovely treasure that I will share with you all. Wish me luck!...Pam
