St Louis Trip

I told you all in my last post I was headed to St Louis 125 miles away to visit a sweet cousin on my mother's side of the family. We use to see each other maybe twice a year when we we little 6-9 years old.Then we didn't see each other till about 4 years ago. I was the poor country girl never been to town shopping and she was the rich St Louis city girl who had it all. LOL however she was always so sweet and her mother Aunt Lou use to bring me hand me downs and I always couldn't wait to see what she brought me. I showed a picture once in a post of a Christmas picture where I had on an Easter bonnet they had brought me one Christmas when they visited. I was so happy I wore it all Christmas day.
This is a beautiful crewel needlepoint type rug I purchased at a resale shop,to put in my bedroom It's 9 x 12 feet and now I need help moving all my big furniture to change out my rugs. i love it

                                                                               
 I stopped at a yard sale where a couple was moving to Florida and selling everything in their house,they said they were only taking their clothes and a few kitchen items.Their new condo was completely furnished. Anyway they had stuff priced to sell. I bought this beautiful 3-D marble/plaster romantic picture and want to hang it in my bathroom soon as I find my wall stud finder.The gold frame is gorgeous and this picture is about 24x 30 ? just guessing
 It will be so pretty in my bathroom
 Then I like Phillip Stark ghost chairs and found this chair at Home Goods store and knew I wanted it. It looks goon next to my glass top table

We also went to a couple Goodwill stores and we each bought about 11 beautiful hardback large cookbooks, Martha, Julia and Lidia's and I got best Southern Living pie recipe's cookbook with gorgeous pictures in it.I gotta have pictures.
Oh also at the moving yard sale I got a small metal fold up bakers rack for $5 and a iron and wicker fold up corner rack for $3. The white spray can paint has already dressed them up. Soon as my back recovers( laid on ice 2 days) from all my shopping and lifting I'll move them in a sewing room I am fixing up.
 Driving home my car was full front seat and back I looked like a road gypsy LOL We had a great time together.Her husband was real sweet to let us run all weekend he just waited at home till we got back then took us out to eat every meal .
