treasures found...and left behind






mary grace and i made our annual trip to Kansas this past weekend to take big brother back to college...oh how i dread driving away and leaving that beautiful boy of mine behind...so mary grace and i drowned our sorrows in a wonderful dinner in kansas city, a night at the hilton (for $49- thanks to william shatner & Priceline!) and then we shopped our way home... we've made this trip 3 times now and my favorite stop is an antique mall called "the brass armadillo"... i just brought home a couple of treasures this year...a couple of scary ladies to add to my collection of scary lady cabinet cards, a half dressed and dirty raggedy ann that i couldn't leave behind (she needed a mom), a few postcards, and a wonderful baby planter... but i'm really missing the real treasure i left behind in kansas...
