~BACK IN THE STUDIO and a Visit With My Sister~

~MY BEAUTIFUL SISTER and Me~
***Loved Pink Even Then***

I'm back in the studio today working once again in my Bone-Zone.  You may not see a whole lot of me this week because most of my time will be focused on finishing up merchandise for my soon-to-be-reopened website.  More about this soon!  I'm more excited than I can say...

Also...

In exactly two weeks my Mr. AGPMan and I will head east for a visit with my sister, Linda and her hubby, Greg.  Because my Sis will be out of school for Spring Break we decided the best time for a little trip would be in April.  Along with being a Principle at a private Christian school, Lin is also an accomplished antique dealer.  She has a fabulous booth at a local antique mall and I'm so looking forward to seeing it for the first time.  

No worries...I'll have my camera strapped to my hip and I promise to take lots of pictures while I'm away.  The two of us are looking forward to fun days of shopping and junking while my Mr. AGPMan finishes up some renovation work on their home.  He will also be spending time with my brother-in-law who is presently still recovering from a stroke from last June.

With Linda on my mind I couldn't resist showing you my very favorite picture of the two of us snapped many moons ago.  The year was 1976 and I was a Senior in High School.  We were on our way to have a family picture taken and our daddy took this photo of us all decked out in frothy pink dresses.  I'm soo lovin' the cameo pins at our neck...

Ahh...those were the days.

Blessings...

Hello!! I love the photo of you and Linda in your dreamy pink dresses
I always have liked PINK, too!
I have met your sister, you know, at her fabulous booth in the antique shop out of Nashville. We stopped by to pick up a chair I had won on one of her auctions and I walked out with so much more than the chair!!
She had some great finds...and she is also sweet, like you!! It was such a pleasure to meet her...
Wishing you a sunny Monday...Hugs, Francy

Bec, if you don't stop saying "many moons ago" I'm going to march out there and knee-cap ya, sugar!! I'm old enough to be yer MOOOOOTHERRRRRR! I don't wanna hear "many moons ago"; it's just "a few years ago", chick, so let me hear you say it over and over: a few moons ago. Hmmmmm???? ;-)

Love the "bone-zone" reference. Know precisely what you mean. Me too. Today's been a day.

Ah..prettiest young faces from what seems like yesterday, huh? As I'm writing this, I'm looking at your photo in the sidebar by your bio, and Rebecca,I think you've grown even more beautiful.

Have fun on your upcoming journey! Blessings, Joy and Monday Sunshine, Terri

G'morn, Rebecca ~ May your trip be safe & full of enjoyment. I know that Greg has had a long recovery ... hoping that things are on the uphill for him. It will be fun for you & Linda to have 'girly' time once again.

Love the pic of you two pink frilled beauties ... awwwww! Cameos! love them.

Anxious to see all your new creations ... don't overwork yourself, tho.

Hugs of love, Marydon
PS Connie is right ... a 'couple of years' will suffice ... chuckle!

I was so thrilled to hear that you are going to Tennessee. I know your suitcase will be filled with alot of LOVE & emotions, It is a journey that I am sure Our Lord has guided you to make and be in the presence of your sister's family to offer your gentle comfort.
Wishing you a safe trip and prayers from The Woodlands TX

Linda said...

Sweet picture of you and your sis. Such girlie girls you are. (:>)

Have a fun visit with her and do take lots of pictures to share of your time with her, and of her booth at the antigue mall.

Looking forward also to the things you are creating now. You have such good taste and such an eye for beauty.

So glad to have you as a blog friend.

I hope you and Mr. AGPMan have a wonderful trip to see your sister and her hubby! I know you all will have lots of fun! I am sorry to hear about your brother-in-laws stroke. I know he will enjoy your husband's company.

Enjoy your visit with yoru sister!

I really enjoyed meeting her at a Bartlett antique mall ~ tea room. They were on their way to your daughter's wedding.

Rick said...

Wow! We know each other for sure. Faith and Greg have an interesting connections with Marylynn and I. We were married on the same night they were, June 9th. Only Faith got pregnant on the honeymoon. We, thank the Lord, did not. We lived in Chapman dorms for a while at the same time, but having a child there was something SNU didn't allow, so they moved out. We've prayed for Greg and his health. You on Facebook? I'm guessing, if you are, you're listed with Faith's friends. It's a small world.
