There really aren't words that are adequate to describe this last week. Anne and her husband James arrived last Tuesday evening and it's been a whirlwind of talking, laughter, tears...good ones..., shopping, and eating. We left Friday morning to go to St. Louis where we spent a long weekend at my daughter's and son-in-law's wonderful home in University City.

But I couldn't wait to show you one of the highlights of the trip, visiting with Elizabeth Maxson and seeing her wonderful home that was just a few miles from my daughter's. I had met Elizabeth just briefly a few years ago, but we've kept in touch through comments and my blog "a day in the life..." which is my Bible Study Blog.
Elizabeth graciously let us take photos of her home and office/studio, which were featured in the May-June-July 2010 issue of "Where Women Create". I just took a few and let Anne have the honor of capturing these beautiful and inspiring spaces.

Look who else was here!
Anne will be sharing her photos soon I'm sure.
I was so blessed to be around these two amazing gals this week. For Vintage Inspiration this Thursday, I have some shots from Elizabeth's kitchen, which was featured in the premier issue of "Where Women Cook".
