I've shared with y'all that my husband has decided to go to law school. Well, this past Friday we got the big news. He got into his #1 choice. Looks like we are moving to Mississippi.
I'm very excited about this next chapter in our lives. However, I'm a bit overwhelmed with leaving the Lone Star. We've been calling Texas our home for nearly 6 years. It will be strange not to be a Texan any longer. I remember pulling into Austin and unloading the moving boxes from my car. It seems so long ago. I also remember getting the news that we had to move to Houston for work. I thought the traffic was bad in Austin, ha! Houston definitely takes the cake on traffic. It seems like only yesterday turning the key to the front door of this house.
I wonder what my first memory will be of Mississippi?
This past Friday I happened to be driving by one of my favorite thrift shops in Houston. I ran in for a quick tour and came across the most divine little set of plates. I really like the dark blue pattern. I have the perfect cobalt blue goblets that will look perfect with them. I imagined that they would be fab for a summer brunch.
And I wanted to share my little miniature portrait of Napoleon. I happened to spot this little jewel at an estate sale. However, you wouldn't believe what I paid for it. I managed to pick up this little guy for only $20.00!!! On my holiday trip over to Bayou Country my husband and I spotted a few in a pricey antique shop. They were the exact frame and backing as my little Napoleon. However, they were priced over $700.00!!! Yes, I believe that I hit the jackpot. I doubt I'll ever find another miniature portrait (not be mistaken for miniatures) again at this price. I did find a scratch that I'm hoping a dab of black paint will fix. This will be going in my bedroom.
