White Flower Farmhouse

On the eastern end of Long Island you have the north fork and the south fork. The south fork is known for The Hamptons. The north fork is known as wine country. Acres and acres of vineyards. Farms where you can pick any fruit or vegetable you can imagine or just buy them at one of the hundreds of farm stands. In between are some of the most beautiful and quaint old farmhouses and antique shops. Or you can go the very end to Montauk and see the Montauk Lighthouse. Every Christmas we take a ride out to the north fork and cut down our own tree. This year, by accident, we came across one of my now favorite antique shops. The White Flower Farmhouse. It's out in one of the cutest little towns called Peconic. Since Christmas I've been dieing to go back and as a Mother's Day treat to myself, I took a ride out with my boys.At Christmas I bought some candles that have now become some of my favorites. I love how simple they are...in just plain old clear glasses. The white "lavender" I bought from their Etsy shop. I love it in my bathroom!

Another one of my favorites is mercury glass. I picked up the beautiful tall one and the little round one second in from the right.


Of course my all time favorite collectible...Ironstone! Last time when I was there I bought a few pieces. When I walk into a shop with ironstone I just know we are on the same page!



And a girl can never have enough flower frogs! What is it about these pointy things, that poke you (and it hurts!) if you are not careful and would probably break a toe if you dropped one, that we love so much?????
As I was downloading my pictures tonight I cracked up when I noticed that my son must have been snapping away as I was looking around. Sneaky boy!

You're bringing back such memories to me...I lived on Eastern Long Island for 4 years (close to the Hamptons) and made several trips out to the North Fork, my what lovely shops they had. Don't think I ever made it to The White Flower Farmhouse but you certainly found some lovely treasures there. I agree with you on the flower frogs, love them too!

Have a Great Weekend!

Jennifer, I am so happy to have found your blog, we have so much in common. I just stumbled upon White Flower Farmhouse last week myself and LOVED everything. I did a little blurb on my blog as well.
I love it out there, I would move in a heart beat if I could.
Have a good one.

Hi Jennifer,
Thanks for visiting my blog, I love the buckles too, although I wouldn't mind falling into that bed! I lived in Sayville and then Manorville before returning back to California. Manorville is beautiful, but a little too "sleepy" for my liking. Hope you're having a great weekend!

I am fortunate enough to live out here on the Northfork. And I have gone to many of the wonderful antique shops. I will have to head out to that shop if I haven't already. I'm not sure if I have been to this one yet. I'll let you know.
