Mother's Day Getaway

Mom and I left Saturday morning for a Mother's Day getaway to Granbury.  We stayed at the Inn on Lake Granbury and shopped the square and beyond.  Here are two photos from the Bed & Breakfast:
 














I was so thankful for the beautiful weather!









I had planned to take photos of many of the historical homes around downtown Granbury, but somehow I only managed to get this one:













We shopped a roadside sale, a huge garage sale benefitting an animal shelter, the Square in Granbury and a couple of places just off the square.  Our favorite shopping spot was Witherspoon's Antique Mall which is a couple of blocks off the square.  I got some awesome treasures - take a look:

These fabulous old corbels that had old peeling paint the perfect color for our kitchen.














I found this great pitcher at a roadside sale and got it for just $5!  It's large - just shy of 13" tall.













I got the large basket/tray shown in this photo from a garage sale for only $2!  It's up really high so it's hard to tell just how large it really is.  If you've been reading my blog for long you already know I have a thing for baskets.
This was by far my favorite find of the trip - heck of the year!


This awesome sign is 60" wide.  I hung it in our living room - here is a shot from a distance:
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
