home...

{Ocala Train Station}




Leaving from Orlando Airport, it was nice to be heading back to home & family, but so hard to leave behind the good times and beautiful weather we enjoyed while in Florida...



While our trip was mainly to help Mom with work around her home and yard {and check on the fruit trees Dad planted last Spring}, we also fit in some fun & sunshine; and of course some shopping and thrifting as well...



I found some great things at Goodwill, a red & white linen dish towel at an antique shop,



...and these wonderful alphabet ribbons at the dollar store.Best of all, though, was the time we four 'girls' spent together.

  3. It sounds like you had a wonderful time. I also love all that red and white baker's twine that you have in that basket. I am south of Atlanta, but I would still love some warmer weather - I know you were loving it!

  5. Welcome back!

    It is hard to come back up north after time in the south. We just got back from N'awlins. From 70 degrees to 14 degrees,ouch.


    You are such a nice daughter to help your parents like you do.
