I Hope You Dance

I am truly blessed with two beautiful girls, one handsome and successful son-in-law, and five beautiful grandchildren! Each are unique in their own way! I'm so fortunate to be able to be a part of their lives.

My brother was 50 years old when he died of cancer. He went to heaven in April 1999...just a few days before my mom's birthday. He was laid to rest in the same cemetery close to mom on her birthday. How weird is that? Steve didn't live to see the millennium, see his daughter graduate from college, or see his beautiful grandchildren.

We take so much for granted. My wish for each of you is this....I hope you dance and live your dreams! Be happy! You can do anything you set out to do! The only thing we fear is fear itself.

The Butterflies

Rianah is playing soccer this season. The name of her team is the Purple Butterflies. Today she played the Pink Butterflies...pink is her favorite color. At first I couldn't figure out which team she was on because she had on a purple shirt and pink socks! I think her uniform got lost in the shuffle somewhere!

She was really pretty good when she played! She was the social butterfly on the field...she liked to visit with Sophie. All the little girls were adorable! I laughed so hard because she'd be kicking the ball towards the wrong goal. The other thing that was so funny are the little goals! They are so small!

I present to you...Madam Butterfly!

Vintage Finds!

Ceiling light I found in Warrenton. I applied a coat of Penetrol to bring out the beautiful rust colors!
Instead of using it as a ceiling light, I'm using it as a candle holder! I have it on the table in the breakfast room now, but thought it would be cute hanging it from the patio ceiling over the table.
Bird Cage..not vintage, but thought it was cute!

Amy Styling in Round Top!

Amy's cart coordinated with her shirt and jacket! She looked cute walking the fields! The cart liner is her first sewing creation! She did a great job and got a lot of compliments on her cart and boots!

My cart had a blue laundry bag stuck in it. I wore an old green jacket and pink boots! We were prepared for the rain...and it did rain the first two days of our adventure. I had a flag on my cart so when I got lost she could find me!

So now when I'm really old and the kids take my car keys away...I have a really nice cart to take to the grocery store!

Round Top, March 2009

This time last week Amy and I were in Round Top antiquing amongst cow patties in the rain! We had so much fun! We must have walked for miles looking for treasures and bargains. I've never seen so much stuff in my life...miles and miles of "stuff!"

The day before we were going to leave to come home, we were looking for funnel cake and ended up with a beautiful buffet for her and a cute dresser for me crammed in the back of her SUV like a puzzle! I'm not sure how the guy got it in there, but was sure Adam was going to kill us both when she got home! That turned out to be pretty expensive funnel cake!

The cold front came in Friday night and it was freezing Saturday morning. We decided we had picked the best days to go because it was starting to get crowded!
