Scrappy Pennsylvania?!

I've slowly been recovering from my long vacation and cleaning off the scrappy desk.... in the meanwhile trying to process what I want to do creatively with over 1,200+ photos!!  eek!!  While the bulk of my travel talk will be on my own blog (the crafty aftermath will be here!)... I did want to share some scrappy surprises I found in Pennsylvania! :)

Up first, the second day my brother, sister-in-law and I were in Hershey and taking a class at the Hershey Story:

Where the instructor noticed me taking photos of every little detail like this:

And she interrupted the presentation to ask me if I scrapbooked!  HA!!  :)  But of course I do!! And she promptly gave me instructions on how to find my way to the nearby scrappy store!!  What a nice store and if you ever find yourself in the area, stop in for a great selection of local items like this:

Fast forward to my last day in Pennsylvania, when we went to some antique stores and look what I discovered:

How cool are these?!  Vintage scrappy books!!  And of course, I had to open them up and see what they had inside:
The first book had lots of comics and articles clipped from the newspaper.

This one had mostly cards with handwritten notes who they were from, little pictures cut from packaging and postcards.

And check out this altered item:
It's a card, that they cropped down and attached to a pillow to make a door hanger!!

Love it!! 

And last, but certainly not least, what scrappy journey would be complete without finding an amazing vintage camera?!
A Polaroid Automatic 100 Land Camera, produced from 1963-1966. 

Clearly, I screwed up by not grabbing that one up for $12 working or not -- would make for a great decor item on the scrappy bookshelf.  Maybe I can talk my brother into going back for it.... :)

So that's the scrappy lovin' that Pennsylvania gave me while I visited.  Definitely some fun and unexpected surprises.  Hope you enjoyed the little virtual scrappy tour of Pennsylvania!!
