Project 366 Rewind #21




Week 21, the end of May, wow, the year seems to be moving along fast! 
This is my favorite photo for the month. I love the fact that I captured the butterfly actually feeding.

Let's rewind my week!


 Sunday- My son Scott will turn 25 Monday, he wanted to go tubing behind the boat and have a fun day on the river!

 Monday- Darien's cute lace socks. She is such a sock person. :)


 Tuesday-My wedding Smash book arrived from K & Comapny!
 I love it!


 Wednesday-A storm came through and blew this limb down on top of my Crepe Myrtle tree.

Thursday- The baby birds on my back porch peeking out of their nest. 
Friday-Todd had the day off and built me a garden bench! Love it!


Saturday-Todd and I went shopping at the antique stores looking for vintage items for the wedding. I found this adorable vintage 1940's train make-up case! Total score! This will be used for guests to place cards in. I have to make a "CARDS" sign to hang in it. I love Pinterest!
All and all we had a pretty good week!
Thanks for stopping by,

Are you looking at me?! Humph!
Love this one!

 He was hopping around the front yard and my fiance told me to get my camera and come see!

I guess it was his attempt to fly that landed him in our front yard! Awe...he is too cute!

Sugar Mill Ruins

Recently we visited Fontainebleau State Park. As we were driving in one of the first things I noticed were  these crumbling old brick towers. So, we stopped to get a closer look. The bulletin board was of no help. All it said was it was a Sugar Mill, but I wanted to know more and the visitor center was locked tight. I began to walk around and take pictures.
Yes, of course you posted this sign, oh thank you!


A little tidbit from the internet ...
 The Sugar Mill Plantation had 2,800 acres, located in Madeville, La. built back in 1852 by Bernard de Marigny de Mandeville founder of  the town Mandeville, on the shore of  Lake Pontchartrain.




















 The plantation helped support his lavish life style. He named it Fontainebleau after a forest near Paris, a favorite recreation area for the French Kings.


















Gosh I love history!
