The Pennsylvania Dutch Hex signs are indeed Amish. They paint them on their barns supposedly for good luck. Most of the original settlers were not really Dutch, they were German, but Deutch which means German got translated to Dutch by the English speaking Americans. Great finds!


Actually, the Old Order Amish never have the Hex signs on their barns although they are seen on other barns in Pensylvania. Lovely find.


Lovely finds from Whiteladies, one of my favourite places in Bristo..though we won't go into the reason WHY it's called that!
