(As a side note: I've extended my Texas visit another couple of weeks - long story, but basically, Ben will be traveling nearly non-stop this month, so we'd be home alone, AND the airlines royally janked my ticket - why are gazillionaires and politicians the only ones who get to travel on G5's??)
Anyway....we had a wonderful Warrenton day - the weather was perfect - not too hot, great breeze, and the crowds were slim (it was still "preview week")
We began our day with this "must stop" nursery in Schulemberg called The Garden Company. Little did I know it would set the theme for the day...
One of the first things I saw was this great, pomegranate tree! It was full of fruit, and when I inquired about picking (and paying for) some of the little beauties, the attendant told me to have all I wanted - no charge! Yippeee!
I was already so fired up, wanting this, wishing for that...when I saw him....Mr. Buddha
Now, you know I told you about my soft spot for Buddhas these days...I wanted this lovely garden piece so much, but he was cast from stone, very heavy, and very impossible to get to Brazil...boo hoo... So, we carried on...
This huge, awesome old sink caught my eye right away - only $300, and in pretty good shape! Wish I had a home for it...oh well, hope it'll go to a loving new owner
I thought these chairs were so great...tried to talk my Mom into Craigslisting her dining room chairs, and replacing them with these...I was not successful... but, aren't they cool with all that nailhead jazz going on???
Here's my first purchase - the RED set of Mexican pillowslips - the handiwork is amazing, I COULD NOT resist!
