King William District


When I visit San Antonio I always make it to the Riverwalk and the King William District.  They have some of the nicest Historical Homes in San Antonio.  Everytime I go there it seems they have re-done many more homes since my last visit.  I enjoy driving up and down the streets of this neighborhood and imagine myself pulling up into the driveway of some of these old homes.  My dream has always been to re-do an old home, but it just isn't in my budget.  So I'll settle for being able to see and photograph them and hope that maybe one day my dream will become a reality.  You'll have to excuse my photography skills...they're not the greatest.  Here's what I saw.... A pretty white house...I can see myself sipping ice tea on this porch. You can barely see it but this home had the prettiest shade of blue around the windows. A Victorian Style home with that same shade of blue on the porch posts. This little cottage had a lot going for it... a precious porch, a decorative piece above the window making it the focal point of the home. The front door seems to have a cornice above it as well. This home had some beautiful architectural details but very hard to capture on film from the street. I loved the look of this home with arches flanking the porch. I had to get a close-up of the wreath. I absolutely loved this massive column on a home that needed some TLC. A really cute cafe... Looks like it used to be a church. I hope you enjoyed the tour! Peace and Love~ P.S. If you're in the San Antonio area you must visit this neighborhood.  Pictures just don't do these homes justice. [...]

The Weekend~


OK,,,So we were in San Antonio this past weekend (after my hubby and I picked up my baby from Cheer Camp in San Marcos) and we had some fun family time together.  The place we stayed at was really nice and right up my alley because of the little villas surrounding the property.    It's located right in the middle of downtown SA but it felt like you were somewhere else but the city.  I Love San Antonio! Here's a few pics of what we saw while there... One of the villas that was available for parties and special occasions.Another view of the same villa. The grounds were absolutely gorgeous. This villa housed the gym. A view of the rooms we stayed in...every one of them has a cute little balcony. Yes, this is a real Peacock.  We were told that at one time they had several running around the grounds. Asian Pheasants walking around as well.My Baby!It was so funny..she was worried they were going to attack her or something. I'll do a separate post later this week of the homes we saw in the King William District. "Have a Great Tuesday Everyone"[...]

I Love and Respect Nature~



 I'm always seeing these beautiful displays with bird nests and anything that is growing pretty in the wild and I just love the natural look of it all.  I admit, I have thought about using the real thing in my displays but can't make myself to take a home away from a helpless little bird.  So I always make my own out of twigs, dried tall grass and anything that is pliable enough to shape into a nest. This weekend, while cleaning up the yard, we found a precious bird nest in one of our trees.  There was no sign of any Momma or Bebe's in the nest, so my husband carefully cut the branch with the nest in it. 
(no birds were harmed while removing the branch)

You will be happy to know that we returned the nest back in the tree so future birds will have a safe place to rest and stay out of the elements.

Have a great week!

Happy 4th of July!

A Relaxed Evening~


It's Saturday night and I have the house all to myself!  What's a girl to do?  Well, I have decided to pour me a glass of vino and watch a favorite movie...a chick flick of course!  Mona Lisa Smile....I don't think that Julia Roberts has ever made a bad movie ever...and this is one of my favorites.  And because it takes place in the 1950's in a place where most of the characters are high society and the clothes, hats and jewelry they wore were fabulous. I go and enjoy my evening alone~
(A small floral arrangement on my dining table)

Enjoy your evening as well~


My Booth In Warrenton~


I guess you can say I wasn't fully prepared for this show....I forgot my camera!  I had to borrow a camera from a friend late in the show....actually it was right before I was getting ready to leave.  So there won't be very many to show you.  I just wanted to share a few pics of my booth at the Spring Show in Warrenton.

Have a Lovely Sunday~

It's Good To Be Home~


I'm sooooooo glad to be sleeping in my own bed!!!!  Being gone for two weeks is rough on this old girl!  Now, I just need to get back into the groove of things....I just had to show you some of the bluebonnets we have growing in the field next to our home.

I'll post some pics of the show later in the week....I have to catch-up at home first.


Make Plans~


To attend one of the best antique shows around....

Marburger Farms has some of the most talented dealers you can find.  I know because I'm so honored to know some of them.  For instance, you will get to see Shelley of Sweet Pea, Theresa of Time Worn Interiors, Judy Hill, Linda of Willow Nest, Donna of Curious GoodsPeg of French Vanilla, and new to the show this year is Lauri of 2 Chippys....the list goes on and on and I apoligize for not naming them all but once you arrive you will be in awe! 

So, I'll leave you to be inspired with these random pics of past shows.

See Ya There!!!!

Have a great weekend!

Pillow Talk~


On this Monday, the first day of March, I am happy to report that it is in the 70's here in Texas in my neck of the woods...just gorgeous!  I'm so hoping that this weather is a taste of what we will encounter in a few weeks for the Spring Show in Warrenton/RoundTop.  I also wanted to give you a little "peek" into what you will encounter in my booth....these pillows that I made myself with love.  I've been sewing like a mad woman trying to make as many different designs for everyone's needs.  After having been separated from my sewing machine for a few years I got the urge to create and now I can't seem to stop!  I have piles and piles all over the house...All styles, All sizes....Big, medium, small.....So many to choose from....No two are alike, so you will be getting a "one of a kind" pillow.  I can't wait to set-up shop!   But wait! There will be lots more to show you in the next few weeks so stay tuned! I hope this finds everyone having a glorious day! Have a great Monday~[...]

Just Playin' Around~


With just a little more than a month left till I head out to Warrenton for the Spring Show I find myself still not knowing exactly what I'll be taking.  I start to pack and then I get a wild hair to create and the packing doesn't get quite done.  I'm hoping in the next couple of weeks to be showing you what I will be taking.  I am itching to go out and buy junk but there just haven't been any Estate Sales or Garage Sales lately.  Hopefully, if the weather is nice here this weekend I'll venture out and do some junkin'. I did head out to the Resale Shop in town this morning and found this adorable pair of baby slippers.  I fell in love with them and the cute little flowers stitched on top.  They are not vintage but I like them just the same.  I have paired them with a wonderful bird nest that a friend (Joyce Shillings) of mine made for me.  I also found this glass basket that is stamped AVON.  I guess with Spring just around the corner, the basket seemed appropriate to buy.  I'll fill it with some grass and glittered eggs. Have a great day! Lisa[...]

White Wednesday with Jeanne d' Arc Living~


Welcome to another one of Kathleen's White Wednesday.  I wanted to share with you my latest discovery. I'm sure most of you have heard of the Jeanne d' Arc Living Magazine...well, just like everything else I kept putting off in purchasing this magazine until a few months ago.  I gotta tell ya when I received the Christmas issue I was hooked!  I have never before in my life seen such an inspiring piece of work.  This made my day when I opened the package to find such a beautiful spread of pages full of ideas and so much more.  If you have never seen this book...(it literally is a book...more than 150 pages) then you'll know what I'm talking about.  It's not only page after page of lovely homes and vignettes, but it also includes recipes with pictures and the best part is there are no advertisements....they save those for the last few pages of the magazine.  How great is that!  This is a work of genius in my opinion.  O.K. I can go on and on about this but I know you're waiting to see for yourself, are pictures I took of the 2 magazines I have received so far.  Enjoy!             I hope you enjoyed my White Wednesday.   This magazine will be published 8 times this year.  If you are interested in purchasing one they are available exclusively through Jeanne d' Arc Living retailers only.  To find a complete list of retailers, go to their website under "magazine".[...]

White Wednesday~


Another White Wednesday is upon us so I thought I would give you a peek into my booth at the antique mall. A few months ago, I downsized from a booth size of 11x20 to a teeny tiny little booth of 7x8. I didn't realize how difficult it would be to have such a small space. If you put too much in it, everything gets lost! If you don't have enough then your sales are terrible! Go Figure...Anyway, here a just a few pics of the recent re-do since the Holidays. Check out the other White Wednesday participants at Kathleen's blog. [...]

New Year, New Look~


Happy 2010!
Please excuse my mess...
I'm currently experimenting with the look of my blog. If there is something you would like to see different on my blog, please let me know (be nice!).
Thanks for the support and the comments!

Final White Wednesday of 2009~


First, let me start by saying that I hope everyone's Christmas was Merry and Happy! Even if you didn't get gobs of presents, we should all be thankful for having our families and loved ones around us during this Season.... that's the biggest Blessing of all! Now, on to the final White Wednesday of 2009! This last installment of WW for this year consists of some of my own personal collections and pics of things or collections that I'd like to have one day! Let's start with some of my collections~ And now for some of my favorites and what's on my Wish List~ I hope you enjoyed my WW and may all your wishes come true in the New Year! Happy 2010!!!! [...]

White Wednesday~


I apologize for not being consistent with 'White Wednesday'. So with the weather being too cold outside to be shopping and doing what I need to do to prepare for Christmas...I thought this would be a good time to join in the fun. It's too warm and cozy in my house to not want to indulge in today's 'White'.
Here's a few pics of my home in 'White' dressed for the Holidays!
Enjoy and stay warm~

Warm Wishes To You and Yours~


Peace, Love, and Blessings~


I know it's been a while since my last post but my computer has been sick and just got out of the hospital.
I do hope that everyone's Thanksgiving was super! I was very blessed to be able to spend the day with my family and eat way too much. But hey, isn't that what it's all about?(image)
My home and table~
(image) So, with Turkey Day over it is now time to tackle the task of decorating for the Holidays, do some shopping and so much more. Next week I will attempt to get my house decorated and maybe do some entertaining before December really gets crazy. Christmastime has always been one of my favorite times to decorate and entertain. To me it's the one time of the year that conservatives like me go out a little more than usual with their decorating.

May your Holiday Season be filled with Peace, Love, and Laughter.

Monday's Show and Tell~


Happy Monday to all!
I want to start this post by saying that I hope your weekend was grand and may your week be equally great.
Since coming back from Warrenton I haven't been much for junkin' so today I decided to treat myself to a visit of one of my favorite places in town, The Outpost Resale Shop. They are putting out Christmas decor and I came upon some santos that I thought would make a nice addition to my small but dear collection.
(image) I love Santos that have the chipped paint, vibrant old colors and just to imagine where they were once loved and by whom. It's the Old World Style that I like to use when decorating for the Holidays or anytime of year for that matter.

(image) Here's a close-up of the church I also picked up today. It's actually a candlholder, but I loved that it was silver and a little tarnished. The Clay Rosary was not purchased today but I did acquire this beauty last week while stopping in at Laurent Street Antique Mall. I absolutely fell in love with this rosary awhile back and when it was marked down I had to have it. It sits proudly around my favorite dress form in my bedroom.

(image) Have a blessed day~

And The Winners Are~


Connie Meyer of She Dreams Big and Theresa Cano of Garden Antqs Vintage. Congratulations ladies for your stories and for taking the time to do so. It's always a pleasure when a fellow blogger takes the time to leave you a comment or just to say Hi!
Connie's story was to me a very sweet and exciting story, she is going to be a Grandma! It's always wonderful to hear that a baby is on the way, not much can beat that! Congratulations! Connie, we can't wait to see pictures of the baby.
Theresa's story was a funny one because it involved a very sweet helper from Zapp Hall named Jose. It was pouring down rain and he wasn't going to let that stop him from helping whomever he could help that needed it. So, he decided to dress himself in black trashbags to try to keep a little dry. I don't know that it helped him stay dry, but his heart was in the right place.
Thanks so much to everyone that took the time to write about their story. I enjoyed reading all of them. Some were all too familiar when it comes to being in Round Top/Warrenton.
And now for the prize these lovely ladies will be receiving. These giftbags and tags are handmade by moi! I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them for you.

A Happy Halloween~


Fall is definitely in the air. The sun is peeking out and the birds are singing. So Nice!
It's a chilly Halloween morning here in South Texas. I can remember when I was growing up that Halloween seemed to be the start of the Fall season. Everyone was decorating their homes with hay bales and pumpkins. Plus it was about the only time we were allowed to eat so much candy that we didn't want any for about a month. This year my decorating is very limited but I did want to share with you some vignettes that I put together at the last minute.

Here's wishing you and yours

a very

Spirit-ed Halloween!

Warrenton and A Fall Giveaway~


Well, I'm back! Sorry for the delay in posting on the Warrenton Fall show but I decided to take some time off from blogging for awhile to re-coup. As you can imagine when you've been gone for 2 weeks straight things can get very busy around the house. As soon as I got back I had to catch up on all the cleaning, washing, etc. and of course spending time with my family. My daughter showed her pig at the County Fair this week and tonight is the auction. Many great things happening for her and I don't want to miss out on anything. She will be in high school next year and then off to college...where does the time go!
Aside from being almost washed away with all the rain this was a very interesting show. I'm sure that every dealer that was set-up in Warrenton and anyone else that attended the Fall Show for that matter has a story or two to tell about this show. I wanted to do something different to kick the Fall season off right. So, I'm doing a giveaway that involves everyone...not only if you were there or not...tell me your most interesting story during that 2 week span and I will pick my favorite and post about it and send you a gift.
How does that sound! Well...what are you waiting for?
Here's a few pics of my booth....and I do mean a few! I lost most of the pictures on my camera....don't ask me how...they're just gone!
(image) (image) (image)
Can't wait to hear from everyone!
Fall Blessings
My Home to Yours~

White Wednesday & Canton Trip~


Kathleen's White Wednesday's are too special not to I am combining my Canton trip post with today's White Wednesday.
I had a special traveler with me on my trip...Linda Gregory (I have featured her shop before in Victoria called Past Time). She was going to Canton that same week so we decided to go together and enjoy ourselves for a few days. We went to Huntsville to meet up with Theresa Cano of Garden Antqs and followed her to Canton the next day. What was really special about this trip is the southern hospitality that was given to us not only on the day we got there but the whole trip. Marion, Theresa's "Junkin' Buddy" was a wonderful host to have us over for a summer lunch at her home on Wednesday when we arrived. I can't tell you how thrilled Linda and I were to be treated so special. Being in Marion's home was all we needed to get those creative juices going. Marion has a very special talent for putting together the most sweetest and interesting vignettes together. I will feature her home in a later post, I'm sure you have seen her home on Theresa's blog....just beautiful! Theresa and Marion "Junkin' Buddy" were such wonderful hosts for putting up with us during the trip to Canton. They are junkin' pros and well...we are just amateurs. They were very patient with us. We thank you both for all you did to make our trip a memorable one.
Now, I want to share some photos of a few things that I picked up on my trip. You will be able to see the rest in Warrenton at the show in my booth at Tree Park Field.

This baby picture was given to me as a b-day present from Linda. She bought it for the frame it was in and I fell in love with the picture and now it's mine!

I Love It!!!!

Thanks so much Linda, you're too sweet!

The baby shoes are a favorite of mine..I love baby shoes and clothes, any kind of baby item. (image) Check out the mannequin I bought from Theresa...I had to have her when I saw her in person.

Just Darling!

I don't know if you can see them real well, but I also picked up a great pair of gold sconces.

And I can't decided if I want to sell this mantle or the other one I bought in Canton....decisions, decisions....oh! well you'll just have to come see me and check it out for yourself.

Again, Myself and Linda had a great time and we hope to join Theresa and Marion again real soon.



Junkin' Finds~


It's Monday and I'm so excited about this week. There are some interesting things going on and I want to share them with you. First, I headed out to one of my favorite places in town this morning...The Outpost Resale Shop. Take a look at some of the things I picked up while there. A baby doll, a creamy vase, a couple of ironstone plates, and some odd pieces of glassware. (image)
But my most favorites of them all is this unique magnetic hurricane tracking map. I thought it was the neatest thing, it tells you about "How A Hurricane Is Born". Too Cool! It's got some rust on it but hey, a little rust never hurt no one!(image)

And now, for the really interesting news. I am going on a small buying trip to Canton this Wednesday thru Friday before I head to Warrenton in a couple of weeks! I will be joining Theresa of Garden Antqs Vintage and her "Hubby" Cruz and "Junkin' Buddy" Marion. I am so excited about this and hope to see some of you in Canton!

Here's to everyone and a Good Junkin' Week~



Another White Wednesday~


O.K.....I know it seems that the only time I do a post is on White Wednesday's. I just can't seem to find enough time to sit down and download all the pics that I take and then come up with a "catchy" title and something to say that goes with all the photos and blah, blah, blah!!! I won't bore you with all of this I think you all know how this goes.
Today's White Wednesday consists mainly of my booth when I ran in the other day to fill in some spots that needed tweakin'.
Don't forget to stop by Kathleen's at Faded Charm and check out all the White Wednesday participants!

Have a great week!
Peace, Love and Blessings~
