Lauria Anna's and first Monday

A long holiday weekend + all my kids out of town = a trip for me to Canton

And of course Laurie Anna's Vintage Home is always my first stop on Highway 19!
I will let you know my favorite thing from each photograph and if you make it to the end I will let you know my two disappointments.  Neither has anything to do with Laurie Anna's of course.  

Favorites!
Headboard ~ footboard.  Love the light wood and super tall headboard!  This is what greets you as you walk in the front door.  

Look closely.... the cake plates with the colored base!

Absoulutely the round mirrors in whites and aqua!  

Bird cage please, I just do not want a messy bird.  I could easily fill one with loverlies from Laurie Anna's collection.

Holy Toledo! The staircase to nowhere!  I don't think it is for sale though.  But still my favorite part of this showcase area.  Holy Toledo... I crack myself up sometimes. 

Tiny glass covered butter dishes.  Can you find one?

Best thing about this shot, the anticipation of more and more rooms around the corner! Oh, and I always love a 50% of sign too.

The three heads.  

The linen napkin hanging from the table, no... the lanterns... no the aqua bottles.

Yep, it was a good day!  So, what came home with me?

 This ruler planter.  Half price tag, YAY!

This lacy tank and this large rectangular serving platter.  Which a very nice sales person emptied the items on top of the platter, right onto the display counter, so that I could buy it.  I got the last one, sorry.  But, believe me they have tons that are similiar!  

Now for my two things that I did not like on my trip to Canton.  The antique mall next door was charging for parking. I don't remember them doing that.  So, I turned around and went across the street to another store that I like.

They have expanded and you would think great, even more great stuff.  Nope, I was a bit sad.  Just seemed like lots of empty space and not as many cute display areas.  But, I did find a great deals for ribbon on clearance.  So, it was worth the stop.  

I also found this small domed server.  The tomatoe from our farmer's market shows you just how small it is.  

Next First Monday Trade Days... Laurie Anna's will be waiting.
July 31 - August 3rd.

June brides and babies

I didn't want June to get away without mentioning flowers and Father's Day.
I worked two weddings in June.  One was sweet and she had a love for baby's breath.  This was the brides bouquet.  The bridesmaid's were total full bunches of babies breath. 

And yes, I used the leftover flowers on Sunday for Father's Day and had all the kids over for dinner.
I love this picture of my Dad and me!   
Melissa teared up a bit when she saw my display of Dads.

I love the saying on this little sign and it was sitting right next to the napkins I used!  I bought the sign and the tiny ceramic bird plate at a cute shop I just found.  If you live the Coppell/Flower Mound area you are only about 20 minutes away from this gem of a shop.  Go visit Stephanie at Southern Charm Cottage, and tell her Lori sent you.  She has gift items and mainly antiques and repurposed pieces.  
Then mixed in with the two weddings and Father's Day .... there was grand sitting!
MissHadley looks way too relaxed in that stroller.  Slouch and stroll for her. We were on our way to the Farmer's Market.
More leftover flowers from this weekends wedding floral job!  One of the best perks of having a floral business!

I spy some sweet toes!  
Next up MissRaylyn came for a visit!  


Yes, Lala did take off that precious smocked bubble before MissRaylyn sat down for lunch. 

Address for Stephanie's shop

Wish I was back at the lake

We stopped on our way back from the beach.  The lake house of Mom and Karl's is a great place to  stop, refresh and relax.



Karl is a great gardener.  He planted some rhubarb and this was the first time I have ever seen some growing.  I love the taste in my Mom's strawberry-rhubarb pie.  Who knew, it is a pretty plant too. 


 The happy camp owners themselves!

We got lucky and my sister and some of her family (and a few girlfriends of her sons) were there too. 

A friendly game of horseshoes anyone?

Like I said VERY relaxing.
