Coming Home

 
We were gone for 7 days but it felt like 4...

 
We challenged our suitcases maxing them out at 50lbs
and
carrying the rest!!

 
Some things just wouldn't fit in our luggage...

 
There were so many more thing we wanted to buy....



Teasing us at every bend
 
 
 
I needed another hobby like a hole in the head.....

 
But I could not resist.....

 
And as if Market and Festival was not enough
 
 
we toured to local Stores!!
 
This vintage quilt was calling my name...
 
 
I had the kit in my hands 100 times...
 
 
But in the end I settled for the book and pattern!!

 
In Galveston, Tx we went to the seawall....

 
It was all we could do not to stay there for the day!!


 
Terry and Sharon waded into the surf....

 
Took a moment to write in the sand....

 
 
We ate like stuffed turkeys....


 

 
 At Festival Hill I loved this saying...
 
Why  Dream Ordinary


cvr cotidiana somnies - why dream ordinary

 
 Festival Hill at Roundtop
 
 
 was a work of art
 
 
 having been built in 1981

 
A modern day treasure!!

 

 
After the hurricanes, many big old trees were damaged


This dog was a tree at one time!!

but

The tinman
 
some talented people carved them into works of art...

A geisha girl



Dolphins and mermaids
 
 

 
The houses in Galveston were so beautiful...

 
Bishop's palace....

 
Fit for a king

 
I think we need to go back and tour these homes!!


 
The Catholic Church
 

 
The oldest house in Galveston...

 
Great verandas....

 
Row Houses....

'
 
 
I felt like we were in New Orleans!!

  1. What seems to be missing is a photo of all your purchases. You are going to show us in your next post, aren't you?

  2. Christa, How big is that vintage quilt? Is it tiny? I love your photos that you take. Not the actual photos, but your thoughts behind each photo.

    1. It's a big quilt! I guess I am going to have to do a final Houston post on my treasures!! But I do like the idea of making everyone wait to see it as I deal with it!! Might take a couple of years at this pace!!
