Welcome, Shady Couple

This is my favorite photo of the "Shady Couple" taken when they were on vacation last year in Seattle. If you knew them it is obvious exactly who is in the photo although all their features are completely in the dark. Ms. Shady has made the big move in recent weeks to cohabitate with our LondonBrother. Moving down from hipper and cooler Austin, you know it must be love. We are all excited she is here!
They live just half a mile from us. Also renovating their charming Spanish style stucco bungalow. Also in the Deco District.

This weekend we visited the Fredricksburg Trade Days along with the Shady Couple. We picked up these chairs on our journey- they thought for ourselves. While they stayed overnight, we headed home to spiff up our finds for a surprise Housewarming gift.
one down, one to go!

These beauties were waiting for them when they got home at their place. The chairs will look smashing in their entry way. Welcome to the neighborhood!
