Old and New

My husband and I took a Labor Day Week-end road trip to celebrate our anniversay. The first stop we made was in Smithville, Texas which is a quaint old town with lots of great antique shops. This home was the site used in the movie "Hope Floats" starring Sandra Bullock. It sits on the edge of the Colorado River and is the kind of place that makes me envy the children that grew up here. My gang of friends and I would have had a blast playing hiding go seek, hunting for lighting bugs, and exploring the river bed.
Today the people of Smithville are progressive in their thinking. Check out this "green" skirt design. I think it needs a little tweaking, but at least someone is trying to keep all these water bottles out of the landfill.


  1. Loved that movie! Best that house is just beautiful!

  2. Hey Kitty. Isn't that porch/home fabulous!!! So warm and dreamy.

    Thanks for coming by to visit me. You're just the sweetest thing and it means so much to hear from you.

    Hope you have a beautiful weekend. Hugs...Tracy :)
