Texas bound!

Hello friends....welcome..welcome!
Monday night I returned home from a lovely memory filled trip to Texas.

Chelsea and her Dad
My son's best friend from childhood married his beautiful lady.
The ceremony was held just outside Austin, at a place called Camp Lucy.
The quaint little French Colonial stone chapel was relocated to Texas from Vietnam.
It was a really lovely venue for a wedding and the weather was spectacular.

Matthew and Chelsea Wright

Yeah...they do look happy, don't they?

They little stone floored chapel was so romantic and quaint.
The ceremony was sweet and simple.

I really loved the Hydrangea filled mason jars hanging from the chairs by
 luscious pale pink satin ribbon

My son Sean snapped a few beautiful photos. 
I think he captured the magic of the moment quite nicely.
But then I am his mother and a bit partial.

The little flower girls were so cute in pretty white chiffon dresses.

The pretty lady on the right is my dear friend Toni, or as I like to call her 'Paula Dean'
Toni is an authentic Southern Belle from Louisiana.
It was so great to see my friend again.
Her Matthew and my Sean were inseparable  as youngsters...
and then we moved to Virginia.
They had not seen each other in almost ten years.
It was a very nice reunion.

The plane ride took me up into the clouds that I normally can only enjoy from my back deck.
It's nice to view them from the other side.

When I left Virginia, the leaves were just beginning to change color.

After a few chilly evenings it seems the leaves took on much more color.
It was quite beautiful during the approach to Dulles Airport.
Lot's of color.

Now that I am home, I have been busy stocking my two spaces at the 
I have also been busy working on two vintage dressers.

This is the dresser I took a hit for...remember me texting the Craigs List seller while going for a ride in an ambulance....ahhhhh  fun memories indeed.

This dresser is a rather hefty and manly style.
You will have to come back to visit again to see the transformations.
What thought I was going to reveal them now....silly people.
What fun would that be???

Please forgive the photo quality.
I have had to resort to using my iphone.
I seem to have left my camera behind in my Texas rental car.
Happy to say they have put it in the mail to me.

I'll be gone again this's a big surprise.
I will be meeting some very talented ladies 
I hope to return
with some exciting news
and a big smile
on my 

Until next kind and stay creative.

What a lovely wedding! The flower girls look so sweet sitting together. Can't imagine having to fly anywhere for a social, but how the colours changed - I would love to go exploring in those woods I can see down there.
