I'm still Travelin'! Yep, this summer has been one road trip after another, and 'That's A Good Thing'!
Come Travel Back In Time with me through a recent PhotoShoot at the Annie Riggs Museum in Fort Stockton, Texas. We visited there via this post... Vintage Patriotism At The Annie Riggs Museum during the Fourth of July Holidays, and I saved this part of the tour for a Pink Saturday Post.
My favorite room in the Annie Riggs is the Ladies Room.
Let me claify....this Ladies Room has no potty or lavatory.
It doesn't allow visitors to freshen up their lipstick or powder their noses.
It discourages one from touching the glass and discarding trash.
It's a Ladies Room where ladies wore cream colored dresses with layered ruffles and handmade lace.
It's a Parlor where ladies studied the violin. (You can hear them now...just turn up your volume)
It's a Place where delicate Victorian Lace Collars and hand pieced album quilts are displayed.
It's like 'Stepping Back InTime'! It's Magical!
It's a Favorite Place of Mine!
Here I am after 'The Magical Trip Back InTime' in the Ladies Room...Back to 2010!
I am particularly proud of this Buggy as it once belonged to a Rancher that my Daddy worked for
when he was a young Bronc Buster in Grandfalls, Texas.
It was donated to the Annie Riggs when I was a Board Member and it's restoration was one of my favorite projects.
How wonderful it must have been for The Ladies to go for a Summer afternoon Buggy Ride
Down the Hot Dusty Rocky Rutted Trails of West Texas!
Thinkin' about that, I'm really glad to be back in 2010 and ready to get back on the Road again...
in my Buggy with radial tires, faster engine horses, tinted windows and a cold air blastin AC.
Also, notice I'm dressed for 2010 Summer....
....but I still love those Lace Collars and Long Skirts.
As you can see, my Sister Connie and I 'Stepped Back In Time' to experience the Lace Collars, Long Skirts and Parasols.
It was a Magical Summer~TimeTravelin Together!
I'm back home now, and we are having a very unusual and rainy July, while I hear some of the rest of Ya'll are having a Texas HeatWave!
So, I'm sending Ya'll these Rain Soaked Roses from my FourBush Rose Garden that's so confused and DisComeBobULated with the weather, it's forgotten the ChainSaw Massacre and just KeepsOnBloomin'
Happy Pink Saturday, July 9, 2010
