There's no place like home....
I've been back home for a week now, but I am just now settling in. It was wonderful to visit my home state and live in my childhood home with my sweet parents for a few weeks, but now it is good to be home in Texas with Sweet Husband, who I missed dearly! My parents took us to Six Flags, we swam in their pool nearly every day and of course there was some antiquing to be done!! Here are a few of the goodies I came home with. The silver tray was my grandmother's, the millinery flower , lace and rhinestone buttons were antique store finds and the adorable little teapot is another one of my Goodwill finds. Apparently my Goodwill store luck isn't confined to Texas!These pretty pillowcases and the lovely vintage embroidered linens below are some my sweet mama gave me from her fabulous collection! Thanks Mama!!
Mama came back to Texas with us and stayed a week and we were lucky enough to visit my favorite antique stores and we found a few goodies. Here are Mama's finds and in the next photo
are mine. I could not resist the photo of this lovely young lady at a dance and the soft pink velvety millinery flower.
And lastly, a few photos of my mother's beautiful home and garden...
How lucky am I to have grown up in such a beautiful place?? You can see more photos of her lovely home and garden here.
