In the Garden Today

I can't believe I haven't posted since June 18. I have been busy.  I am liquidating a fabulous estate in the TCU area and am working feverishly to get it ready.  While I was catching my breath, I decided to relax in the garden.  I couldn't resist taking a few pictures of what I saw.  Enjoy!

Sunday Greetings

Greetings... on this beautiful Sunday evening.  The day could not have been more beautiful.  I spent several hours in my backyard place of serenity.  I pruned a little, listened to the birds alot, spotted new little yellow butterflies, and soaked up the sun.  One of the most special things I enjoy in my serenity garden is, on Sunday, a little church across several acres from me, plays inspiring hymns on their bells.  They play "Count Your Blessings" almost every time.  How could I not count all my blessings sitting in the soft sun in my beautiful backyard listening to sweet music echoing thru the blue sky.  It don't get any better my darlings.

My heart goes out to the families that have lost loved ones and their homes due to the tornadoes north and east of Texas.  May God give them strength to face the days ahead. 

I was planning on taking some new items over to Dolly Python Vintage today to add to my space, but just couldn't seem to leave the house.  It just seemed the perfect day to chill and enjoy the day here.  I will be going on Tuesday.  It is such a fun store to have my offerings in. 

Take care and warm wishes of blue sky and sunshine.

Great Saturday at Antique Elegance

I had a wonderful time in Richardson on Saturday at the Antique Elegance Show.  It was formerly the Victorian  Elegance Show.  Scrumptious, museum quality vintage clothing, absolutely breathtaking antique jewelry, Victorian lace, trim, velvet, and buttons, were in abundance. The whole show was very tastefully done.  The show is twice a year and if you love pre-1940's anything, you will love the show. I had a such a great time.

Today, Sunday, I went to change a few things around in my space at Dolly Python.  It turned into an all day job.  I put up heavy, burgandy colored drapes from the 1920's to shield my space from the sun.  I brought in about 15 pieces of pre-1950's clothing, and Mike put up another chandelier for me. I love my space and I love that store.  Today a camera crew from L.A. came in to do a photo shoot of the store and film Allyson in vintage fashion.  Very different day!  They also bought alot of vintage clothing including a vintage two piece swimsuit and cover-up and two little cotton dresses from the 1940's, that I had for sale.  Great Sunday!

Robin Brown of Magnolia Pearl had a runway fashion "Imaginarium" show yesterday (Sat.), in Fredricksburg, Texas.  I love her clothing and buy as much as my pocketbook will allow.  I would have loved to gone to her fashion show, but the drive was a little to far, especially with it raining so hard.  Her clothing is so totally awesome.

Have a great week you all.
