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 ...you 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 weekend...it's a big surprise.
I will be meeting some very talented ladies
I hope to return
with some exciting news
and a big smile
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
