Cynthia’s cottage in Country Living!

Last September, my friend and fabulous set designer, merchandiser extraordinaire
Vince Maggio, let me know he had staged a fabulous cottage in McKinney. I asked
if he would like photos taken of his work and he and Cynthia said “Yes”. As it
turned out, Cynthia was going to submit photos of her home to several publications
hoping to get them published, so perfect timing! Well, I stepped in the front door
and was in Heaven! Of course this home needs to be published! Needless to say,
Country Living has it in the current July/August issue so pick up a copy! In 2017
it will also be featured in a book, City Farmhouse. I had the pleasure of sitting in
onboth of the photo shoots, so you can image this little photographer
was especially happy!

Audie Murphy Day!

Every year, Farmersville honors Audie Murphy and all veterans and active duty military with a parade and all kinds of celebration! There was a fly over to start the festivities with 3 planes from the Ghost Squadron Commemorative Air Force in DFW, a Vultee BT-15, PT-17 Stearman and T-6. After that, a Vietnam era helicopter, The Ghost Ship Huey 197 flew over several times. Most memorable was a one man bio-play show at 1st Baptist with L.A. actor Duffy Hudson portraying Americas most decorated war hero, Audie Murphy. The scenes of what he went through in the trenches brought tears to many eyes. Of course, a Texas parade isn’t complete without a few horses, cowboys and antique autos!

Old Time Farmersville…Bains-Honaker House 1867

The Christmas parade was cancelled today due to the rain, but the

historic Bains-Honaker House was open for tours! I had been wanting to

see inside this home that I often walk by so I was happy to get to take the

tour! It was built in 1867! Guess I had better join the Historic Society…

The tag says that this child, Katie Neathery, died at 8 in 1883! So sad how many died from lack of penicillin

Griffith Observatory with a Full Moon!

2 weeks ago my friends Deborah and Ron took me to the Griffith Observatory
We had a full day going to the LACAM,the art museum most of the afternoon, and then after going to the farmers market and having a drink break, we headed up the mountain. There was a concert so the traffic was terrible but it was worth the view after all, especially because there was a full moon! You will have to excuse the quality of these images, I didn’t have my tripod so I was experimenting with my camera and settings….but I think it shows how beautiful the view was and how high up we were!
