Road trip to Lucketts

I spent the weekend with 2 of my sisters.  We took a road trip to Virginia.  We didn't accomplish the mission that we attempted but we did get to spend great quality time together.  I was the passenger in the backseat, not paying any attention to where we were going.  At one point I saw a sign that said welcome to Leesburg VA.  Sister #3 was telling us "this is a very historical town that we are driving through now."  The light bulb went off and I thought I remember that Luckett's Antique Store was in Leesburg.  I immediatly sent a text to my girlfriend back home and asked her to check the Miss Mustard Seed blog and see exactly where Lucketts is located.  She sent me the address and the Phone number by text.  (Thank you Jennifer you rock.) 

Once we checked in to our hotel we called Lucketts and got directions.  We were only 8 miles away. Yipee! So first thing Saturday morning we headed to Lucketts.

My friend Jen loves these bottles

I'm trying to decide which color paint I want to purchase from Miss Mustard's Seeds new paint line.

This is crazy sister #4 buying long johns and a Russian hat to wear when she goes hunting.  Yes my crazy beautiful sister loves to hunt.  Only she could pull off long johns and a fur hat.

My color choice was Tricycle.  I can't wait to try it out.

 I had such a nice weekend traveling with my sisters.  We get so caught up in our own families that we don't spend enough time together.  Honestly we are all so different but we truly have the strongest bond to each other.  I wouldn't trade my huge Irish-Italian family for a million dollars.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit Luckett's Antique Store I would recommend it 1,000 times.  The staff was awesome and the rooms were full of great stuff.  I was so inspired by it all.

Looks like fun! I hear so much about Luckett's and I am in KC so its too far to drive, but the next time I am in the DC area, I am going! :)

Can't wait to see how you use the milk paint too!

Awesome trip! I just got my first color of milk paint from Lucketts a few weeks ago. Excited to see what you do.
