I Forgot My Camera

Oh the joys of packing! I actually don't mind it especially when I am heading to Eufaula. I look forward to placing all of my little collections in the Shabby Old House. So when we headed to Eufaula, I drove my SUV and Dave drove the truck and we had both loaded down with all the things that I have been gathering for the house. We have the house to the point that we actually had some overnight guest over Pilgrimage.
I forgot my camera and so my guests are going to share their pictures of Pilgrimage. We had a wonderful time touring all the old houses as well as hitting every antique shop around.
I picked up a disposable camera for these shots. Ya gotta love a Kodak.
This is a Vintage Pagent gown that I found this weekend. Now if I start dieting now perhaps I will be able to wear it for pilgrimage next year...
No doubt some pretty "little" southern belle wore this.
Have you visited Dream In Cream blog and seen her blog banner? There are the most beautiful pillows made by Felicia of Bountiful and they have been my inspiration for my next project. They even inspired the girls over at Antiques in Old Town.
Here is a sweet old vintage sofa that I have been dragging from room to room.
It is here in the Master Bedroom for now.

I love the carved wood but it gets lost on the floors so....


I painted it and now the detail pops off the floor.
I am on the hunt for the perfect rug.
I will be making lots of pillows. I was just playing with some that I had.
Can"t you see it loaded with lots of those pretty pillows?



As pretty as this wood is it is a toe breaker.
Perhaps now that it shows up on the floor I won't stub my toe and then have to repent.

Hope you will come back soon
I will be sharing with you my friends Susie and Mark's shop, The Cat's Meow.
You are going to love it.
It's another great place for inspiration.

Bye for now
Becky

Great job on the couch. You can see the detail without enlarging the picture.

oh Becky I love those pillows and I have visited her blog and also drooled over them! Did you buy the pillows or make them, I wasn't sure if that pic was taken in the store you mentioned?? The couch looks so pretty painted, I can't wait to see it with the pretty pillows!

Hi Becky,

I think you did a great job on your sofa. The pillows and paint look perfect. Hope you find the rug you want soon. That dress is so beautiful.

Hugs & Blessings,

LOL.......
Oh Becky, I am laughing with you not at you!
You see our old sofa has the same feet!
We have stubbed our toes more times then I can keep count, hubby swears he is going to throw that sofa out the door next time he stubs his toe.
Thank God he hasn't yet! :-)

Love all the pictures!

Hugz & Blessings,
Dolly
