I'm home from Arkansas and finally getting around to updating my blog.
Eureka Springs is such a lovely little holler. It rained on the only full day we were in town but that didn't prevent me from snapping a photo or two.
The Passion Play wasn't in production on Wednesday but we visited the Christ of the Ozarks anyway.
We never figured out how to get over to this.. ...home?...hotel?...castle? We headed out of town--- in what we thought was the right direction---never found it.
How can something so big be so hard to find? I guess us flatlanders are useless in the mountains.
We found a winery with blue bottles...naturally we had to buy a blue bottle...we didn't really care what was in it...just so long as it was blue. The poor saleswoman didn't know quite what to do with two flat-landers who didn't really care about the wine but really, really, really cared about a blue bottle! So we bought two!
We visited the Amish furniture store and feel head over heals in love with a bunch of furniture that we couldn't afford!
We went shopping at a really great "thift" store and I found all sorts of treasures that I couldn't live without!
As I turn these treasures around I'll try to post photos of them. Stay tuned!!!
I think this is an egg bucket...don't quote me on that, though...I found it at a little spot where we had lunch. I planted it as soon as I got home on Friday!
I went crazy for this little planter that I found at the thrift store...
I was a very happy shopper!
On Friday and Saturday, Johnny Mike and Cowgirl N Pearls did yard work for me. I was a real task master. They worked their little behinds off and made a huge difference "out back".
(The wagon was the kids'. They used it almost everyday to haul dirt, tote lumber, to play "refugees " and to carry the tools they used to build a raft. I can't stand to part with it so it holds a place of honor in Doc's rose bed.)
We had a great little road trip...
we hadn't even gotten back home and we were playing our next one!
I came home inspired, relaxed and happy!
The summer has officially started and I am officially caught up in having summer fun. I may not get around to this blog as often as I should and I haven't even read any of my favorite blogs for over a week. There just isn't enough time in a day!
Until I return...
