Juneteenth - 150 Years - 1865 - 2015

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States.  Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galvestion, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.  Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation - which had become official January 1, 1863.

Say Snow One Mo Time!

We had RECORD breaking snow this week in Fort Worth, Texas!

So what did I do on this snow day you ask?

I cleaned the outside of my kitchen cabinets I painted 4 years ago and then touched them up with left over paint!  

Then I added more new cabinet door knobs that had arrived earlier this week!  They are crystal!  

Love them!

Come on Spring!
