My wonderful treasures from Texas ~

Well, since I don't travel very much (at all)
I didn't know quite how to handle shopping in Texas
and then getting my loot back home to Georgia ~
All I took was a carry on bag with a teeny tiny amount
of room left inside :)
So what did I do???
My carry on bag looked like it was going to EXPLODE!
I did shop for tiny things...here are my treasures:

Plus I had several precious gifts from Ann...
a pair of handmade pillowcases and
the most INCREDIBLE journal I've ever laid my eyes on.....
I admit it, I cried when she gave it to me ~
please look at how beautiful it is...

Lisa showered me with gifts the ENTIRE time I was there...books,
magazines...and wonderful old goodies she knew I'd love ~

Lisa son Philip even gave me a drawing!!

Here are some of the treasures Lisa gifted me..
beautiful old cabinet cards, buttons, lace and jewelry plus
gorgeous French General fabric that I'd been dying for....
and even a wonderful book that Beth sent her!!!

But these tiny little children's bedroom shoes were what made me cry!!!
So very old, soft and small....
Thank you so much sweet Lisa for
your precious hospitality and these beautiful treasures to remember
my wonderful trip ~

Thank you very much for entering my 1500th Post Giveaway!!!
Your comments are all so precious to me ~

Have an amazing Tuesday dear friends,
hugs and love,

That journal is just stunning! Ok, here is how to travel and get the goods home, leave the clothing behind and stuff the bag full of necessities, you know, papers, photos, buttons, lace, junk jewels...you get the idea. What a wonderful assortment of treasures. Thank you for sharing a bit of beauty. Have a pretty day.
