There's No Place Like Home


Dad and I under a live oak tree just after fishing in the San Saba river near Menard, Texas.

Dad and I had such a good time visiting with family. We arrived home yesterday evening and as I drove up the driveway I said to him there's no place like home and what does he do but start clicking the heels of his boots together. I suppose he was glad to be back too!

I have so many wonderful pictures to share of deer, rivers, cactus, sunrises, pecan orchids and the list just goes on.

My aunt took me into Fredericksburg, Texas to a rug hooking shop and it was stocked with wools, rug hooking books and supplies. We visited antique stores and thrift shops, ate at a little tea room and had an absolutely wonderful time.

I had the pleasure of fishing and visiting with family that I hadn't seen in years. It was nice to get away with Dad and see places where he grew up and hear the tales of his youth. I'll be back soon to share photo's and show you all my goodies I found along the way.

You still have until tomorrow evening to sign up for the fall giveaway. Just check on the post below where it says "A penny for your thoughts" and sign up!

Happy Trails....Ginger

Ginger,
I'm so glad you spent some time with your father.Sometimes it's just so satisfying to spend time with our dad's and get them to go back in their past and imagine them back then.Cherish these moments.Have a blessed day.

Do you offer a shop on "esty" too?
...if not you should. I do. It nearly free, and easy, and stands for all things Hand Made. You can even take the hand made pledge. www.etsy.com
I think it would be right up your road.
