Hello all.  Hope you've been well and having fun this summer.  I'm still allowing God and his peace and the counsel of great friends to lead me in the right direction with my situation.  An angel called me yesterday, no not the kind you would think of like in biblical times, but a great friend that said just the right words to lead me in the right direction.  You know who you are friend and I give you many thanks for your words of wisdom!!  There are so many of you that I can't say thank you enough to that have emailed me such great words of support, or called and said just the right thing or made me laugh when I needed to, or left comments you truly are a great community of friends in this blog world.  I know that there are those of you going through so much more than what I am and just this week I read about a family that lost their daughter, tragic, so young.  If you get a chance go over and visit Vickie's blog.  I'm sure she'd appreciate your words of kindness during this situation.  My ordeal is nothing compared to this.

We spent the weekend in Austin with our oldest son and his girlfriend and a house full of family.  We were there to celebrate Courtney.  She was in a body building contest/beauty pagent and she won first place in her contest and then won first place in overall competition.  I'll show more of this in a later post. 

Of course we headed over to Binky LaFaye's. It always seems like such a quick trip when we visit but there sure was a lot of inspiration going on in Llano Tx.  The middle picture of my header was taken in Binky's shop and the other two were taken at Uncommon Objects in Austin.  I'll also do another post on Binky's and Whimsey's hopefully soon.

Heading back into Austin from Llano, we took a different route and guess where we landed, almost right at the front door of Uncommon Objects.  Do you think I took the opportunity to visit here, of course I did.  My nephews had never been and having heard me speak so much of this place they just had to check it out.  They found a few treasures, I was good and didn't buy one thing, but boy did I soak up the inspirational things that were in this store.  Just super awesome.  I would love to have headed over to the City Wide Garage Sale but we just ran out of time.  I did, however, find Mickie and Brandy's new booth at the Austin Antique Mall and would you believe that my camera battery died before I could take a picture of their booth.  I'm definately going back to this shop, there was so much to see.

Want to see more of Uncommon Objects:

Well head on over to Discarded Forlorn for so much eye candy you're bound to be there a while.
