4. Mimi Muse Designs coasters (so very pretty!)

Texas Garden Delights

Just got back from The Little Winter sale! It was such a beautiful show. I even got to meet Abby from Abby Try Again! It was so nice to meet her after following her blog this past year. She was super sweet and I purchased a print that I fell in love with ages ago. Looking through her gorgeous photos inspired me to post some pics from our recent trip to Texas.¬† Although the trip was for very sad reasons, I am happy to share these shots from my mother-in-law’s lovely garden. After all the tears it was wonderful to play in her whimsical yard. Grace especially had a blast…

She has these huge old oak trees that seem to watch over the garden like gentle giants…

This little stage is actually a vintage day bed that my mother-in-law found on her many antique shopping adventures. Like the old red doors above, she collects precious treasures and finds the perfect spots for them. Grace adored dancing around on “her stage” all afternoon and into the night.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend.


p.s. If you live in Portland, do not, I repeat do NOT miss the opportunity to check out the incredibly talented women at the Little Winter Market. Tomorrow is the last day!
