Susan's house sits above the still-beautiful Blanco River, despite its loss of all the majestic cypress trees that used to hide those cliffs from view. In fact, her house took on five feet of water in the epic Memorial Day Flood, when the water actually topped those cliffs for the first time in history, and had to be completely redone. It made my heart happy to see that their lives were finally falling back into place. They lost so many treasures, but she did a great job finding these new/old mid-century treasures on Craig's List. Eat your heart out Alexis Lane!
Of course, ours wasn't nearly this cool! Sister Gus and I gave up a gorgeous antique canopy bed that we had to share, so we could have separate twin beds that we arranged like this, with a square table built by our dad.
Anyhoo, if there's one thing Susan has plenty of, it's nice, smooth river rock! So, what better project than to paint some of those rocks?
Our hosts fixed taco soup and the most amazing broccoli cornbread for lunch...
|LaNell reminds me so much of my sister Gus, I do a double-take each time I see her!|
So, if any you former Lucky Star gals live anywhere close to Austin, or if you have signed up for next November and want to meet some of your soon-to-be-best-pals ahead of time, I suggest that you ask Miss Tricia to add you to the Lucky Makers Meet Up facebook group, so you don't miss out on hearing about any of the upcoming gatherings!
And, if you haven't yet been to Lucky Star? Well, you just don't know what you're missin'!
