salado-chapel

hey y’all!

hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving! we were very blessed: all three of ben’s sons were here, including mike and his wife burgandi and their little one, harrison. he’s the first grandbaby! tara and matt (my two youngest blessings) were here as well as ben and me. an almost full nest of baby birds (no matter how old they get, they’re still our babies)!

ben and i have fallen completely and madly in love with grandbaby harry. we seriously considered hiding him from his mommy and daddy so they might leave him behind. but in the end, we thought better of it. would’ve been a tad extreme, don’t you think?

on friday, burgandi and i went shopping in salado and left grandpa and daddy behind to babysit harry. had lunch at a quaint little tea room (very girly!) and found great deals on some very sweet things … but most of all, it was some serious “girl time” with my daughter in law.

the house is mighty quiet today … just matt and me. feeling kinda blue and missing baby harry. i’ve written it before, but i can’t help but wonder what a mama bird feels, if anything, when all her birds fly out of the nest. the older i get, the more sentimental (and sometimes downright depressed) i get during the holidays. especially when i don’t see all of my children … or if i get to see them and then they leave again (as they should!). sigh.

okay. enough wallowing! am including pics of the family, especially the grandbaby … and a few from salado. i found two VERY sweet little birds who are now at home in my collection (pics of that too). what IS it with me and birds, anyhow?! it’s a sickness i’m afraid. they are just toooo sweet.

enjoy. and hang in there. this time next month, it’ll all be over … for another year. whew!

love and hugs,
terry lee

hey y’all!

my, how time flies! i didn’t realize it’d been so long since my last post!

you’d think that i’d have more time now that i’m staying home (home-schooling my youngest) … but noooooooo. not so. we stay very busy and we’re having a blast. it’s a great blessing for both of us.

anyways, here are a few pics of some recent treasure hunt finds and of my front room, which is now officially “paris-themed”. last weekend, i SCORED a vintage singer dressform at a yard sale. shall i tell you how much? okay. FOUR bucks!! she’s now in my paris room. love her. and need to name her. she’s my first.

another notable find … a big ol’ pink fru fru dress (bridesmaid?? prom dress??) at the harker heights goodwill bargain barn. ohmygawd. it caught my eye as soon as i walked in and it just wouldn’t stop yapping at me the entire time. “take me home! you need me! i’m PINK! just look at me! buy me!” i finally caved in and put her on the pile of junk i was buying just to shut her up. geez.

oh! and sue, i absolutely LOVED your visit! i never knew my garage could be so much fun! ha! sorry ’bout the stale sandwiches (and on PAPER plates to boot!). gawd, i’m an awful hostess … 😦

hope y’all have a great thanksgiving holiday. don’t forget to count your blessings … great and small.

love, hugs and blessings to all,
terry lee
