Baton Rouge & Lafayette Louisannia

Sorry .........
I haven't ignored you...just busy!  The last time I wrote, I was getting ready to go to Houston to house hunt. I spent 9 days there and did not find a house.  I did  spend 2 days with my friend, Donna who lives in Lafayette, La. We had so much fun. I took some pictures of our days together so I could share them with you. We haven't seen each other in about three years. We met in Buffalo, NY at The Chapel.
Wednesday Donna drove to Baton Rouge to swim at the Hilton where we were staying.
                       These are pictures of the Mississippi River from the third floor of the hotel.

                                   It was a beautiful sunny day. Lots of activity on the river!

                                                       The pool over looking the river.
 Donna brought a picnic lunch and we laid out in the sun until about 2 or 3 just relaxing and chatting!
                                                       It was a great way to catch up!

                                                         I did get a sunburn!!!!   OUCH!

The next day I drove to Lafayette and we went to Tinsel and Treasures put on by the  League of Women! It was many booths to visit. I forgot to take pictures too!
I was overwhelmed with the amount of ladies looking, buying and bumping into!
What a treat! You could find just about anything....... caramel apples, clothes, jewelry, Christmas things, Halloween things, silver, baby items, husband items, just a lot of everything!

       I thought the tops of the trees were so pretty and since Christmas is around the corner......
maybe you'd like to try something new! Deco mesh seems to be big now!

A little inspiration........I love the white fluffy things. Whatever they are! lol

  Maybe try something new this year?????/

A whole lot of new.........this didn't come out to clear but I loved the candlesticks.

A new fall door ...perhaps! I snuck this one in.....

A subtle change...a new exotic bow.

Or how about some sweet gold birdies! I wanted these but then passed them up!

This was so much fun. I am glad Donna invited me! Thank You, Donna!

After this wonderful afternoon, my husband met us at Donna & Kurt's for a lovely dinner! I will share that on October 23rd.
Remember our challenge from Kathleen, white dishes for the 16th! I set my table already....waiting to see all your tables.

Have a wonderful week!

Blessings My Friend,

P.S.  Not sure why we are having so much trouble buying a house in Texas. I do know that I am trusting in the Lord to get us one!


  1. I'm so glad that you had such a wonderful time with your friend. The League event looks like there was a lot of inspiration to absorb. I lift your house hunt in prayer. I know that the Lord has just the right one out there for you. He may not have it listed, yet. Cherry Kay

  2. Sounds like you had a great time, in spite of the problem about buying a house. your photos are wonderful, and all of those pretty Christmas trees made me want to start getting out Christmas décor! Good luck with the house hunt. laurie

  3. You should have visited me. I am only an hour and a half away. Sounds like you had a great time with your friend. Pretty Christmas décor! Good luck house hunting!...Christine

  4. Hi Elaine, glad you are having a good time when you can, house hunting can be fun but exhausting at the same time. Good luck and yes, God will lead you to the one! Take care - Dawn @ We Call It
