Weekend Getaway and a House Full of Antiques

Our Mountain Weekend Getaway
was more than I ever imagined
it could be.

The road was long and winding.
Of course, I got car sick.
I was hoping we'd make it through, 
"Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise."

Well, the creek did rise!

And I thought we were lost several times.

But we made it, and
the view from the top was spectacular.

Rocking chairs on the back porch 

and the cool morning and afternoon rains,
made for an inviting place to retreat, relax, and refresh.

The cabin was full of antiques and vintage items.
What I would love to do with this glider.
It's just rusting away, maybe the owner will sell.
You think?

Stained glass windows like this one
hung on the front and back porches.

Every room was full of antiques
and every room had mirrors.
You know my love for old mirrors 
and the natural peel.

The upstairs bathroom was unfinished, 
The laboratory was the exception.

Five and Tens still exist
in some remote places
of the world.

Mr. H said, 
"I'm taking us to a hole in the wall for breakfast."
I didn't know he meant 
"Hole in the Wall."
It was YUMMY!
And the food wasn't too bad either.

Vintage fishing gear

And old fashioned light fixtures
adorned the wall.

Antiques are wonderful, 
but these beauties
 CAPTURE my heart 
and take my breath away

And this one MELTS my heart with just a smile!

Oh, what I'd do for a whole week of this!

Hope you'll get your getaway soon!
Everyone deserves it!



  1. Hi Bonnie! Oh, what a time! So glad to hear the creek didn't get too high. How wonderful to spend time with your family. Thank you for visiting my blog. I love the name of yours - made me think of the song by The Carpenters - We've Only Just Begun! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
