Thankfully We Escaped

I went to church last night and while in church I had my phone on silent. When church was over and I got in the car the first thing I did was check my phone. I had several missed calls and a bone chilling text from Craig that said a TORNADO just passed over the top of our house! I immediately started to shake in my shoes! I called Craig and was terrified of what he would have to report! 

He watched the tornado come across the field where these building were destroyed. It is our county fair grounds. It was a large wedge tornado. He watched from the front porch until the wind was so great he had to go inside. He said the tornado was on a straight path for our house. He gathered the dogs and they went to the bathroom. He said he never heard a noise like this in his life, he said it was like a train on top of the house. While in the bathroom he said the whole house shook, vibrated and made loud cracking noises. He said he expected the house to lift off the ground at any second! But it held strong!

Just a few hundred yards from our house the TORNADO lifted off the ground and passed right above our roof! As Craig went outside he said he expected the roof to be completely gone, but it was still there! God was defiantly watching over us! We had a few minor things damaged, but nothing we can't fix ourselves!

These photos are of the fair grounds right across the road from us.

This is the house at the end of our street.

It blew our RV off the blocks and turned it about 3ft.

Thought this was odd! Lifted this glass out of the table and gently placed it on the floor of the deck without breaking it! Most of the damage was under the porch.

Rachel Ashwells B&B Ranch

While we were in Texas my friend Theresa Cano got invited to tour Rachel Ashwells B&B. She could bring 2 guest and I was lucky enough to get chosen for the tour!

The place is breath taking! My pictures don't even do it justice! It was rainy the day we were there and I can only imagine how lovely the place must look when the sun in shining! 

Rachel and her assistant was our tour guides! 

I've only shown the main house in this post! Guest cottages will come later! It was hard to take whole room pictures of the house because Rachel and her staff were staying there during the big show. So.......all of their belongs invaded most of the space!

I hope you enjoy the tour!

Theresa Cano of Garden Antiques

The first time I ever set up at Marburger
I had the pleasure to meet 
I walked in her booth and I was going nuts!
I wanted to buy about half of her booth!
 She has a great eye for unusual things and a great talent for creating wonderful vignettes.
 She always has these tallow berries, they grow in her yard!
I love these berries, they don't grow in Kentucky, so she happens to be my supplier!
 I love the way this chandelier looks sitting in the bird bath!
If you want to check out more of her great booth, click here!
And I'm sure you all know she is the wonderful hostess of the famous blog party!
I have some great photos of that event that I will share in the next post!
