Taking You With Me To Maine

I've been in Maine since last Wednesday with Annie visiting my in-laws. It was a surprise for my Momma (mother-in-law) who promptly cried when she walked in the door and saw Annie. They live on a beautiful 50-acre property in Maine with lush, beautiful, thick green grass. So nice to walk barefoot and not worry about fire ants or other evil Texas bugs. And it's been such amazing weather! Friday morning it was 39 degrees when I woke up. I don't even know if I'll ever feel that cold in Houston.

Some of the best antique and vintage finds are here in Maine. There are loads of retirees who've collected a lot of junk in their lifetime along with nicer junk that's been passed down to them for generations. In the first 3 days we hit up a church sale, flea market, a couple yard sales, and an antique store. Here are a couple pictures from an antique store called Wilbur's. A bit on the expensive side for me, but they have some lovely furniture. I especially love the fold-up wooden theater seats.

Look how green it is. Don't you just want to lay down and take a nap in it? Ahh...

There was a ton of stuff at this store, but I couldn't stay long to look or take pictures because Annie started getting antsy. And I didn't walk away with anything, but I did buy something at the church sale. Hopefully I'll buy a couple more things and put it all in a post later this week.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Love the Beasts,
