Be Inspired Friday


It's another Friday here at my store Country Roads.  I am always, without a doubt, and a bit frightened as well, with the passage of time. I wish I could figure a way to slow it down a bit. These pictures today are courtesy of my son, Bryce. This is where he displays his stuff at Country Roads.  I think owning a store these past twenty years have inspired us all, including my son and Katie and Brande, my daughters. Below are a few of Bryce's vignettes and lamps he's made.






 

The old huge chippy door in the background came from the old Lincoln Heights jail. Back in the 1950's in LA, the jail was primarily used as a "drunk tank" for the Hollywood celebrities.  One of the things I love best about antiques is the stories they have to tell.  Also, if you are looking for something to do tomorrow, Old Towne Orange will be celebrating its 125th birthday!!  Be sure to where something Orange and come on down and wish her a happy birthday!! Also I'm linking up today with Debra for "Be Inspired Friday"! Please stop by her blog to visit not only her post, but many others that are participating.  Take care.

Wouldn't it be great if some of those "stars" had chiseled their names onto the door. Kinda like "For a good time call Marlon, BR5-49"! LOL
Great photos as always Sue.

I'm with Trash Talk and think a celeb should have etched their name on one of those doors. Love the backstory! Hope your weekend goes smoothly Sue! Ann

Dear Sue, Thanks for the comment on my post... I have lost both of my parents too, I took my Dad home to my house to live out his last 13 days, he passed in 1995, Mom in 2002. I bet Bluebonnets bring a special smile to your face when you see them.
Have a Beautiful week & Happy Memories ~
