Happy Wedding Day

Our eldest son, Paul, finally found a bride…We are so excited that he has “Met his Match”.

Chrissy and Paul Wedding 005

…Her name is Chrissy and they were married in a lovely garden wedding in Corpus Christi last Saturday. They kept it small…her family, us, and a few close friends.

Aren’t we a happy group? Don’t they make a lovely couple? So it’s official now…Mike and I  are In-Laws and we finally have a daughter. They are honeymooning in Texas…I’ll post more pictures when they come home to meet the rest of our family.  Say a little blessing for their marriage and a little prayer for their happiness.

Yes, they are a darling couple. I love the intimate wedding they had. Her dress is just lovely and she and Paul look so happy. Blessings to all of you, LaVerne and here's to a long and happy marriage for the newlyweds.

Flea Market Finds...sounds like my whole house and yard...

Milk Glass Collection

Who knew that a 25 cent flea market find would unleash such a collecting frenzy? I never pay more than a dollar unless it's a really nice piece. They are great grouped with a single daisy in each.

These used to be inexpensive florist vases in the 50's and 60's. Everyone's Grandmother had bunches.

Mexicana Dishes

My sister found these for me at Bussy's Flea Market in San Antonio, Texas. I had seen pictures in her Fiesta reference book. Mexicana was also made by Homer Laughlin in the 30's. I had been looking for several years without ever finding even a single piece when she found the set...with a promise to hold it for us, she came running to find me and I bought the entire set...60+ pieces for $50.

I've added to the set over the years, but the price and experience will never match that first amazing find.

Vintage Kitchen Hutch

When my hubby found this hutch it was Pepto pink and I was not 100% sure about it. But with a new red back and fresh white paint and refurbished hardware, it became one of my favorite pieces.

Nancy made me save the vine

The vine and flowers painted on the inside were in such bad shape that I was ready to remove it all. Nancy -My Crafty Little Page convinced me to keep it and after some touch-up work, I'm glad I listened to her. My husband restores vintage Cushman motorscooters and he tries to make everything "mint" condition again. The Shabby Chic movement came along just in time to keep me from making some terrible mistakes.
