a historic trip...

I was privileged enough this weekend to attend a beautiful military ceremony in historic Fredericksburg, VA for my cousin who is retiring from the Navy after 20 highly decorated years of service. He was a Lieutenant Commander for the Seabees and has traveled the world protecting our country putting his life on the line more times than I care to know..  I am so incredibly proud of him and the trip to Virginia is one I will never forget...
There was a stop we made on the way back north in Leesburg, Virginia that was almost equally exciting to see...







I was like an excited little kid when we pulled in!! I was actually at THE Lucketts - the place I had read about for years from Miss Mustard Seed!! It was a beautiful, very sunny day and I just took my time wandering though this massive place taking it all in... I took around 60 photos! Here are some of my favorites....




These were the outside vendors... How they styled and made use of old materials to create their little "huts" was pretty amazing!



The porch itself was packed full of goodies too...


Then I made my way inside... This large old house is made up of what must be hundreds of small rooms! You wind through it like a maze... You have to look in all directions with every step because there is something to see from top to bottom and in every nook and cranny!






















The intense sun made photographing the rooms a challenge! And of course I was glad I got to see Marion's space before she moved out completely...


All of her paint products were 30% off which was a nice surprise! And of course I stocked up on a bunch of goodies!!

The entire trip was so memorable and amazing!

I am now in high gear getting ready for the Indie Arts & Vintage Marketplace in Carmel, Indiana! Less than two weeks to go!!
