Texas Backroads Visited....



This past week was one of the funnest weeks I have had in a very long time. I spent 3 days at the Roundtop Antique show. I went with one of my oldest and dearest friends Lavon. I have known and loved Lavon and her family for 35 years -WOW that is a long time when you write it down.She is more like a sister to me than a friend - isn't it wonderful God sends us just the kind of friend you need.WE looked, bought, talked, laughed, got lost at least once, lived without cell phones for 3 days and without a TV for one night - I had a blast! The shows at Warrenton, Zapp Hall, Marberger Farms-are beyond description. I found myself thinking how to describe it to my friends and family back home and all I could think of was one word descriptions - INSPIRING, AMAZING, OVERWHELMING, EYE CANDY, DARLING,WHITE, SHABBY, CREATIVE,PRECIOUS,GORGEOUS,OLD, SOOTHING,BLUE, RED, IRON, METAL, BUTTONS, STRING, DISHES.It was the best of the best -booth after booth of cuteness it was really more than I could take!! It was definitely one week I will think back on for a long time.

We finished the week off with a visit, to a little bit of Heaven in south Texas- the Antique Rose Emporium. It was such a treat and inspiring to see the wonderful gardens - will mine ever look like that? I can only wish and keep working in my dirt. We both bought Rose bushes and dreamed of how they would look in our gardens all the way Home.




Thanks Lavon it was one more wonderful memory I will cherish....
