Take A Tour Of The Depot At Gibson Mill

Good afternoon, my dears.

I found the pictures from my hubby's 35th birthday dinner and thought I'd add them to the beginning of this post.

On the Wednesday, after my hubby's birthday was Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Since my hubby works for a ministry and television network he had the day off of work.

We decided to take a drive through the country, along the winding tree lined roads, to The Depot at Gibson Mill.

It's well known to locals that the set designers for the movie, The Hunger Games, shopped here, as it's the largest antique mall in the South on over 85,000 square feet, and 460 booths.

One of the stalls had a collection of vintage postcards from England, so I looked through and recognized the Holy Trinity Church, perched upon the River Avon in Stratford-Upon-Avon it's where William Shakespeare was buried.

There was also a collection of vintage yearbooks. The ones before the 1950's were intricate and had such delightful portraiture and captions, one of my favorites was Miss Ruth George, "Most Literary".

There was also a store that reminded me of the show, Little House On The Prairie.  

A little blurry, but something I wanted to share was this teacup, cut in half and attached to a nightlight. There was a wall with so many choices, a perfect gift for the tea drinker in your life.

Hope you enjoyed the tour of some of my favorite finds at Gibson Mill. It took us several hours to walk around. We met so many courteous and friendly people, and even an adorable Pomeranian.

I bought a vintage washbowl and jug, an antique blue and white vase which I've planted peace lilies in, and some electric candles that were made to look like they belong in Ma and Pa Ingalls cabin.

Have a blessed day,

Happy 35th Birthday To My Hubby

Last Friday, we celebrated my hubby's 35th birthday. He was twenty-eight, a few weeks from turning twenty-nine when we first met six years ago. We had a simple weekend of going shopping, to dinner, and a movie. We also did something we enjoy doing once in awhile - we gathered a bunch of magazines and browsed through them as we sipped on pumpkin spiced latte's.

Here's a throwback, back to the early 1980's. My hubby on the left, and his older brother on the right.

Happy Birthday my dear.

Carolinas Aviation Museum 'Home Of Miracle On The Hudson'

A few weekends ago, we had a day out at the Carolinas Aviation Museum. It just so happens the museum is a permanent home for the airplane from Miracle on The Hudson, also known as Flight 1549.

The flight was on it's way to Charlotte, North Carolina so many of the passengers were local and often come to the museum to talk about their experiences.

Afterwards, we were guided outside onto the air field where we could view a few more airplanes, as well as watch flights taking off, and landing at the Charlotte airport.

To most people going to see airplanes isn't all too exciting, but it reminds me of my dad. He was in the Rhodesian Air Force from the late 1970's, to the early 1980's and went on to carve our a career in avionics (electrical engineering) in aircraft. He was partner, and president of his own company for nearly twenty-five years from 1989 until he passed away in 2013. So I spent much of my childhood in airplane hangers, and airplanes.

Are you a plane person? Excuse the pun!
