WHAT I'M OBSESSED WITH THIS WEEK - PENNSYLVANIA EDITION

March 23, 2018

Someone asked me recently if I liked where I lived & I said hell yeah.

 

Pennsylvania - and Philadelphia more specifically - is a great location.  You can be in so many other major cities - like New York, DC, & Baltimore just to name a few within a few hour drive or an even shorter jaunt in a train.  We're not landlocked & have access to all sorts of waterways & beaches.  We're lucky enough to have all the major sports teams & great arenas & culture out the wazoo - think the Philadelphia Art Museum & the Pennsylvania Ballet to the Liberty Bell & Constitution Center just to name a few.  Great food & the best of all four seasons.  I can go on & on.  

 

Who knew I was so PA proud.  So it gave me the idea to do a Pennsylvania edition of my weekly obsessions.  At first I thought I wouldn't have enough to share but then I ended up having to narrow it down!

 

 

 

PENNSYLVANIA ROOTS ART WORK

 

When I first bought my house in the Philadelphia suburbs I was looking for Philly or PA inspired art work for the walls & found this one on Etsy & immediately ordered.  

 

 

 

 

PHILADELPHIA HAND TOWEL

 

Someone gifted me this & I can't remember who but I absolutely love all the landmarks on this handtowel from the City of Brotherly Love - it hasn't left the front of my oven since. 

 

 

 

PENNSYLVANIA WINE STOPPER

 

I'm pretty sure this was another cute gift someone gave me with a bottle of wine.  Wine never lasts long in this household so this stopper is in heavy rotation - what can I say?!

 

 

 

PHILADELPHIA THEN & NOW 2018 WALL CALENDAR

 

How cute is this?!  This also comes in a book edition which I don't have but the calendar's pretty cool too.  

 

 

 

PENNSYLVANIA POWDER ROOM GUEST TOWELS 

 

Yes - I am a freak & for some reason feel more sanitary with throwaway paper towels after I wash my hands then with a hand towel everyone uses.  Am I the only one who feels this way?!  I love these PA theme ones I found randomly at Bed Bath & Beyond.

 

 

 

Are you guys as hometown proud?  And if so what are some items you have around your house to show your state spirit?

 

Cheers - Hal
