The Depot at Gibson Mills, Concord, NC

Saturday Jenny, Owen and I went on an antiquing adventure!  We went to The Depot at Gibson Mills in the town of Concord, NC.  Jenny lives in Concord and found out about this marvelous place! Here is what The Depot at Gibson Mills website says about this marvelous place:

"an antique and designer mall that was once a mill, located in Concord, N.C. With 85,000 square feet and 460 booths, we have quickly become the largest antique and designer mall in the South. Once a part of the old Cannon Mills, the charm of the 20 foot ceilings, wide wooden floors and exposed brick remains. From antiques and reproductions to imports, collectibles and new furniture, there’s quite an eclectic collection of quality merchandise under one roof."

Here are some pictures I took while we were there:

 This photo is only a very, very small portion of the place.
This was one of the booths I thought had some really nice things in it.
I loved this lace piece and the necklace!!
 I want this chair!!!  I love the toile pillow too!
 This booth as you can read the sign had vintage items in it.  Really nice!
I fell in love with this hat!  Too bad I don't look good in hats.  Just gorgeous!!

Jenny and I had a wonderful day and Owen was a trooper through the whole day!  He sat in his stroller and was singing and talking in his little language.  He also found time to flirt with a pregnant lady!!  The boy has no shame-LOL!!

It's days like this that memories are made!!

Oh, what fun! This is one of my favorite activities, not just the possibility of finding a treasure, but seeing how other people display their treasures!

We did have a great time! It was all overwhelming and we have decided to go back again (and again!!).

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
