They all rocked my world this week!!
Hello friends...happy to see you here.
So... if you follow this blog, you know that my sister and my mom came to visit for a few days.
We had a great visit that was filled with eating.....
|Nothing beats a juicy local peach!|
|Man..this was good stuff|
Warm, out of the oven southern peach cobbler...
|notice the cool jet streams|
Beautiful Virginia mornings...
|runaway parakeet and tomato eating deer|
|my pathetic tablescape attempt...look away Miss Mustard Seed!|
And fabulous thrift shop discoveries...
I hit the motherload of English Ironstone thriftiness on Monday
I really love the soft design on this pattern
Isn't this texture lovely?
Twenty seven gorgeous pieces in all
As I hunted, I kept finding more and more pieces
Sorry, but I cannot tell what I paid for all this Ironstone
for fear of the police knocking on my door and charging me with grand theft!
Yeah...it was that much of a steal
I also picked up four really lovely vintage hankies
|my house is in that red square...YIKES!|
And now we come to the EARTHQUAKE part of my post.
Today at about 2pm a 5.8 earthquake hit Virginia.
My sister and mom had left for New York and I had just settled in to edit all these photos for this post.
All of a sudden it sounded like a couple of military helicopters landing (or crashing) into my home.
The walls started to shake...dishes rattled...floors moved beneath my feet...it was SCARY!
Now I know you California ladies are thinking 5.8 is no big deal.
Just imagine LA or San Diego getting a major blizzard in July...yeah, that's a good comparison.
I think it is safe to say that would get your attention.
So that was my fun few days...what have you guys been up to?
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
PS...I'm working with a corporate sponsor to set up a great little Giveaway and I need some input. If you were to win a gift certificate for a Home/Garden store (think Home Depot, Lowes, Pottery Barn etc) which one would it be. Do you have a favorite? It is going to happen, so help me decide on one and leave your choice in a comment. I'll be posting the Giveaway next week.
PPS...I JUST FELT AN AFTERSHOCK!!!!
