road trip....










i went to 3 old country cemetaries on a geneology hunt with an old school friend and while she looked for her great grandparents i found these beautiful stones.... they are from my favorite style period....1860 to 1880...

i love the hands together.... so romantic....and also isnt the finger pointing up to heaven very nice?....we took my little grandson noah, and he ran around with his butterfly net.... hes into catch and release...

Very interesting stones. I have never seen some of those designs before and I've been to many old cemetaries here in our town. Nice new Fall items too.

I love that headstone with the finger pointing up, wonder if he was hoping or was sure!
Love the wreaths, I love the natural wreaths,or as my kids tell me all the dead stuff around.
