A Beautiful October Weekend and an Estate Sale

October has always been my favorite month but I have to say it has been quite the roller coaster ride this year. I'm going to start with some of the good things ; one was this past weekend when the girls of Mysticwood took a treasure hunting road trip, We started at an amazing estate sale at an enchanting historic North Carolina Plantation. The architecture of this house will take your breath away as will it's history. You just feel the footsteps of the past as you step out onto the lawn in the shade of giant oaks that has sheltered this family since 1859. I could have lingered, dreaming in that magical place there forever,                                                                      

                     We found some amazing antique linens, some that will be added to my collection and others that are going to be listed in our Etsy shop in just a few days, I have a ton of hand laundering and ironing to do but my favorite find of the weekend is this pair of well loved and tattered shoes. I have the perfect little dress to display them with and I am totally in love with them.


We said goodbye to the stately old home and drove the back roads through Edgecombe and Halifax counties. This time of the year the countryside takes on a glow of sheer beauty. We love the cotton fields and the golden glow of the forests that border them. We paid a quick stop by the old house and nearly cried to see that it may not be standing another year at all and that the little town so well loved has fallen into even more desperate disrepair.
From there we traveled on to Historic Halifax,  we are always so proud to walk in this lovely restored town and know that the Halifax Resolves began right where we stood as free Americans. Then there was more shopping and antiquing Riverside Mill in Weldon.

It was an amazing trip and I have much more that I will post later but I want to update everyone on the the little girl that I last posted about.

She is improving, she does have a way to go but she will make it. She has had surgery to remove a fragment of her eye that was damaged and infected. She is still undergoing treatment but soon she will be ready for her forever home. Everyone that has been involved in her rescue has fallen in love with her. She is so gentle and so loving. Thank you all for your prayers and healing energy. She is warm and eating well and will be ready to make some lucky human very happy with her sweet love and brave happy smile.
