The flowers are screaming with color, oh how I love them, so new, bright and full of beauty.
This is called a passion flower, I have never had one before but the flowers are incredible.
I will take a pic when it flowers.
I had a chance to snap more photos of my treasures from the old house, they are filling my heart and home with total yumminess! I have the funniest feeling that the ladies of the house are smiling down at all of us with so much happiness that not one or two people, but many can share in the delight of their treasures. Fun, eh!!!
Maybe it is worth all the trouble we go too, to preserve our treasures and have someone to love them when we are gone and share with the world.
I have to share a story with you. My daughter came over last Friday and we had so much fun going through the bags and boxes of clothing. She is a real vintage clothing freak. It was like Christmas morning for her. I had been through what I let her go through already and I knew exactly how she was going to react. LOL...I was right, just like Christmas morning...rip, tear, move on to the next gift, try it on, get it off, need the next one. I was playing the spoiler though, she would try something on and run into our bedroom to see how she looked..I would have the next piece out and would never let her get ahead of me. She so wanted to just dig to the bottom, but nope, not allowed, have to handle with care. We spent about 1 1/2 up there just laughing and giggling and twirling about. She tried on all the hats and made me smile, she has beautiful long thick hair and the hats looked gorgeous on her.
Don't you just love this old suitcase? I think it is so awesome.
All these goodies were dangling from the inside when I opened it.
And away we go! I have washed and pressed all these linens, and decided to store them in the suitcase.
Check out this gorgeous, gorgeous hat. I think it is incredible. Can you imagine wearing this, so cool.
It really is a thing of beauty.
Looks pretty darned good on her..Wouldn't look that good on me with my short hair.
This hat is really pretty also.
I wish I had of lived in the hat age.
This is a black velvet band.
I am telling you that I love, love this dress, it is simply gorgeous.
Check out the sleeves. It is in perfect condition.
I think I am going to get it cleaned and wear it to a wedding we have in the fall, what do ya'll think?
A beautiful old book.
gorgeous bits and yards of old lace. YUM!!!!
Lots and lots of gloves, the girls had very tiny hands though.
More beautiful linens.
And more. I will be forever and a day getting through all the bags of linens and doilies and hankies.
Isn't this pretty!
Just had to snap a photo or two of my big ole black dog, Colby. He is now 12 and brings so much joy and happiness to my world every day. I love this guy to pieces. The other two babies just did not have time for me to be snapping pics of them. They would rather run around and see what kind of trouble they can get into. LOL...
He is just the picture of sweetness.
And such a good boy!
