Keep In Touch #126

Hello, Lovely Friends,
Welcome to Keep In Touch. 

I hope that you had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend. 
We did. 

I started my weekend early with a trip down to Cleburne, Texas. 
Two great antique stores are down there. 

One of them used to have a wonderful selection of white ironstone but she was running a little low. 
I'm sure she isn't able to get out and get new stock for her store due to Covid. 
I picked up a couple of pitchers, a vintage oil painting and a darling mini copper mold. 
The Bus Depot is a darling store. I was able to find some brown glass for some autumnal color this fall. 
I took Bill's car since my truck was all gassed up and ready for a trip out to the lake.  I wrenched my back when I got out of the car at home. I did this once before because it rides so low to the ground.  So frustrating. We left for the lake a few hours later. Unfortunately, I spent most of it hobbling around. 
The weather was gorgeous. We were able to do a few water activities for one last time this summer. 
I was ready to get the fall bins out as soon as we got home but I need to give this another day or so to heal. 
I've done some retail therapy since giving up on the little farm. I'll have a designated post about my antique finds.
That's about it for me.
Now for the features. 

I love these bird sightings from The Marmelade Gypsy. 

I enjoyed catching up with Sarah from Hyacinths For The Soul.

  1. I know you're disappointed about the farmhouse, but that was beyond fixing at anything like a tolerable cost. Good hunting!

  2. I have a new bird sighting for you this week, Katie. And a fawn, a bride and more! Thanks for hosting and featuring my bird!

  3. I’m sorry about the farmhouse and wrenching your back! However, shopping dies always help. Thank for hosting!

  4. I hope your back feels better soon. A wonky back is the pits!

  5. Shopping sure helps take our minds off disappointment. I'm so glad you all had a good inspector on the farmhouse. Seems like God shutting a door, so He will open a new one in His timing. Hope you're back is better soon!

  6. Katie,
    Sorry to hear about the farmhouse but I am a true beleiver that everything happens for a reason and it just was not meant to be for you...Something better may be right around the corner.... Sorry about your back, I do that to mine frequently...
    Thanks so much for taking the time to host each week!!
    It is greatly appreciated!!
    Stay safe, healthy and happy!
