For four days last week they had a Home and Garden Show at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, and on Sunday we decided to check it out. We were there for less than an hour because I thought it was more along the lines of Chelsea Flower Show but there were hardly any flowers at all, and that's why I really wanted to go. If you were in the market for some home renovating then this was the place.
Here were some of those flowers. The wall and brickwork impressed us so much that we put our names down for getting an estimate, We need to build a new walkway and steps in the front of our house. In the Spring we are going to be making phone calls because even though a nice lady told us they tackle small jobs, most of the work they do started from $20,000 to $80,000. Gregg looked a little green, I gave him a big smile as if to say "Don't worry My Love", said to the lady"Why thank you!" and off we went without a backward glance.
There was a handbag vendor but I wasn't in the market for one of those, and I think I have mentioned before I don't really like shopping unless I absolutely have to. There are still a lot of miles to go on the one I have.
I liked the look of this glass work but had my mind on those flowers and was still looking for them.
We both said what a beautiful fireplace this was and we would love one of those in our house, let alone on our patio.
Oh boy, loved this too but no don't think it's going to happen.
Okay, when I saw this sign I was immediately drawn to it - for some reason - and I think there is a trip to Manassas in our future.
We also liked the eagle but I don't think he is going to find a home at our house, he's just too darned big. He would look beautiful glinting in the sun though, and he was magnificent.
We were on our way and passed this RV advertising to the world, one of the vendors inside the center no doubt.
After stopping off at McDonald's we finally reached home. The bear family wanted to know where the heck we had been and why hadn't we brought them any breakfast. We were duly chastised.
