Be afraid, be very afraid! The two Sue's were out and about and on the prowl. Noooo you sillies you. Not prowling for men. Pshaw. Prowling for deals! Bargains! Goodies!
Things we don't need but MUST have!
Yes, my dear friend and fellow blogger, Sue Sullivan, and I went to an Estate Sale in a near by town. It is a town filled to the very brim with wonderful old homes of every shape, size and from every era you can imagine. The home we visited was quite different from most there, a Spanish Colonial with amazing stucco and tile work. It was built in 1924 and can be yours for a mere
$399,900. Here is the link to the realty page if you would like to take a peek...Prudential One.
We met all sorts of fun and interesting new friends like Maggie May here...
And this sweet little guy...can you believe how tiny?
The tile work on the outside and inside was gorgeous.
Oooh. We dare. We DARE!
This was the breakfast room's wall mural. I loved it...
They just do not build houses like this anymore!
The foyer ceiling...another example of the lovely paint treatments in this old beauty.
We parked in front of this old gem. More my style, I could have oohed and awed at it all day but we were starving! So off to lunch!
Then we made a little trip to Waynesville, another favorite town near by. No pictures but I do plan on getting back there soon to shoot a few for you! It is a delightful place filled with antique sand gift shops and great homes.
On the subject of GREAT abodes, let me share a few with of our Sue's beautiful home! Oh, and if you have yet to meet Sue, hop on over and tell her hello! (Just click on her name and poof!) She is fun, a real pistol, a great writer and one heck of a decorator!
Isn't this the most perfect Autumn welcome?
And how about this? I know! Pretty isn't it?
Sue's house is amazing and she has a real gift for decorating and creating the most wonderful vignettes. This is her kitchen table...all dressed up for Fall. That cornucopia was one of her yard sale finds! Sue is the Queen of thrifty but amazing finds!
Isn't this little black crow precious?
First off, doesn't she look purty? I thought those colors were perfect for her!
Not only did Sue and I spend a happy day together but she sent me home with some of her homemade goodies! A gifted cook, she made up a traveler of her native New Mexican delights for little ol' me! I will let you in on a secret...it was DELICIOUS! Oh yeah...and old Bill tried to share it with me. Silly man. he paid for that...okay, so I let him share but I didn't want to! It was THAT good. I also got to taste her guacamole and whoa. She DOES make the best you ever tried. Thank you Suey for the food, the great day and your friendship!
I hope your week is going well and that you are finding plenty to smile about!
Hey! Autumn is here! Autumn is here! Yippee!
Love and Many Hugs,
