Fun Weekend & Fun Finds


We went to the Biltmore this weekend for some relaxing family time!!! The Spring flowers, especially the azaleas, were in peak bloom! I thought I'd share some pictures with you!




The girls were getting sillier and sillier!


One of the kids took this pic of me and Hubby! They did pretty good :)!
(Check out that crazy wavy humidity hair on me!! :)



Everything was SO beautiful! We just loved wandering the Gardens!



We had a great time together! We toured the gardens and the Biltmore house, went to the children's petting barn, and also did some local shopping!! The prices were pretty high in Asheville, in my opinion, but I managed to snag a few vintage treasures anyway!!


So I thought I'd join in Rhoda's Today's Thrifty Treasures party!


I got this fun old galvanized tin seed tray! Love the slots on either side of the handle for a label!


I also found a pair of decorative wood pieces that (so the dealer told me) came off of a mid 1800's dresser. They'll get a nice coat of paint and be hung at our new house....when we get one! :)

A 1950's globe and a fun Florida tea towel with pink flamingos on it (!) round out my fun finds!



I hope that you all had a great weekend!
I have some fun posts planned this week, so come and visit again!

You have a beautiful family!

We toured Biltmore at Christmas 2007. We'd love to go back sometime!

You found some wonderful things. I love the seed box.

I love Biltmore - we have year long passes but don't get to use them as often as we'd like.
The pictures are great.
Enjoy your Monday.

Didn't you just love the Biltmore? We love it there and look forward to visiting again and again.

You really found some great things. The seed box has so many possibilities and the colors in the Florida towel were beautiful.

Great finds, and your family is beautiful. I dress my boys alike a lot too because they are only a year apart. Don't you just love Biltmore? We love to go at Christmas and see all their spectacular trees.
