|Look at the chickens!!! I still love chickens ever since my grandmother
Helen had so many lined up above her kitchen counters…
|Just look at this sweet Santa! “Take me home!” I clearly heard him say…|
|Gorgeous pieces all one of a kind… Very upper left pink necklace is made
from pink coral. The two lowest necklaces on the table and to the right
are made of tiger eye.
|Our summer mantel with its peacock feathers.|
|This is just one photograph from the post I wrote
called Tom’s Secret Garden in Corsicana.
Brides-to-be would instantly be put at ease to choose from Victorian Sample Florist’s selection of faux or real blooms.
|Just look at this gorgeous tiger eye and wooden shell piece!|
I did find a pretty bauble to bring home with me… Mr. Adams calls his jewelry “lost treasures” and I’d have to agree. Chunky necklaces have been calling my name and I haven’t any before this piece… Plus you know I love pearls!
|Love love love the Renaissance and Steam Punk style of
this chunky necklace which is why it came home with me.
|Aren’t these blue beauties pretty as they bob in the
windy late afternoon sunshine?
|More of our neighbor’s front bed in the late twilight…|
|Packing the last things out of our right-hand storage unit.|
BTW, did you know it is cheaper to move in the winter than in the summer? Peak season costs more.
|The beginnings of the donation pile.|
|Pulling out of a rest stop along the California-Arizona border
somewhere. The weather was perfect all the way home!
|Saw this trucker bringing home this cutie for a special child.
Isn’t this adorable? Love it!!!
|Photo actually taken by Mr. Ethereal. 🙂|
|Mr. Ethereal also organized the built in cabinet ~ a new beginning for us!|
Tomorrow our household goods will be delivered and then we will be able to take our time putting things away.
|A heavy mirror I shipped back on Virgin Atlantic from England in 2005.|
|My big birthday present from 4 years ago ~ a 4’w x 5′ tall pier mirror.|
|Ms. Laura in her Marmie Civil War era wool dress. Perfect in every detail!|
|Here I am ready to go back at the Four Points Sheraton. My room overlooked
the Galveston seawall and beach. It was heaven in the mornings!
I have to say that conversation is one of the things I relish about attending or hosting a tea ~ there are so many things to think about and you always learn something new!
|Here is the wonderful chef who baked all of the truffles and macarons!
She wore a dress decorated with her favorite blooms ~ sunflowers ~ all
hand-made by her mother Cheryl.
|Frank and Cheryl Palmer|
|Our first Christmas in our first trailer spent at Lake Skinner.|
|Our tree this year is the same one used last year ~ a nice 4 1/2′ tree I found
right before Christmas from Sam’s Club for $24 or $27. A wonderful bargain
with realistic looking needles. 🙂
|A bit of a mess but that’s real life, isn’t it? Presents to be wrapped up on the
sofa and a pillow and mugs to put away. Mr. Yoda is enjoying
his new dogbed. :)’
|The little pink Christmas tree reminds us of the real reason for the season…
That Jesus came to this earth fully man and fully God to give us eternal life.
|An evening tea party with scones and English Breakfast.|
|Make a fall centerpiece with a faux pumpkin vase.|
|I went for a less cluttered look this year still using flowers but the faux variety instead of dried.|
|Last of the evening light falling gently on this colorful trio of gourds.|
|One last look in the waning light ~ can you find the forgotten sticker?? 😉|
|A great photo for you to pin! Thank you, Katie of Let’s Add Sprinkles!|
