The Stillroom

“I laughed so hard I nearly spit out my hot tea.  The strange part was the fact that I was drinking coffee at that moment”. -Jarod Kintz, This Book is Not FOR SALE.

Well, hello there!  If you are still waiting around for spring to spring, you might as well make a visit to Diamond Antiques located at 311 East Sixth Avenue in Tarentum, PA.  I can’t think of a better place to just hang out and wait for the growing season to begin. If you have not been here, you are missing out. There is so much to enjoy on two floors in this lovely historic building.

In case you didn’t know, the store is made up of a co op of over 25 vendors, each with their own special collection of antiques, collectibles, vintage, found treasures, repurposed furniture and a general assortment of cool stuff.

The Stillroom is located inside…

Mark your calendar for the Spring Open House!

I think the title “Going through some things” can lead the reader to think of one of a couple of scenarios.

While I was going through some things, I came across a really old and useful book of poems that I forgot about.  I would have to guess it’s from about early 1900’s. I’ll google it when I have a sec and let the reader know any details I might come across.

Inside, I found small and delicate Queen Ann’s Lace pressed between the yellowed pages. I think I put those in there in the 80’s, most likely from my mother in laws field in Sarver.

The wacky looking thing in the window is a cool bottle opener. Leaving it there because it’s kind of interesting and I can stop opening my beer with my teeth.

The tulips are there because they are reminding me that the Diamond Antiques Open house is right around the corner!


This cat looks as motivated as I feel today. I lack a wanna do anything. So many things I should be doing.

Going through some stuff

So, going through some stuff, I found this pic of my dad as a boy. He grew up to serve in the Marine Corp. and in 1951, at the age of 22, sent this musical post card to his mom, my gram. I dare not try and play the brittle song. These would be kind of cool to bring back into play. Pun intended. Anyone?

Hey! The Spring Open house at Diamond Antiques and Gifts with its 20 some vendors are getting ready to burst into some serious springtime action!
