This Weekend

We visited Gloria Dei (Old Swede's) church in Philadelphia, the oldest church in Pennsylvania, in use since 1700!

My favorite part is two ships hanging from the ceiling, models of the ships that the Swedish people who founded the church came over to America on.

Not my photos

Here it is from the outside:

I also love the stained glass, which is from the 1850's, and the decorative swirls, which are very Philly:

Also this weekend, we stopped by one of my favorite stores in Philly, Jules Goldman Books and Antiques. It's a charming pile of prints and art and old books. And the icing on the cake--Barbara Blau Collectables, an antique shop, is in the back.
