Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you have a love for vintage things, well....you have come to the right place. We have a really good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies on display that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.
Today, in following the rules...I am resharing one of my vintage Colorado Plates. My heart is so heavy this evening, I am just not up to being creative and doing a new post.
The mountains my husband and I love so much are engulfed in flames....the memories of past time spent in these mountains and the beautiful landscape is forever being turned to ash. I am sure none of it will return in my lifetime.....and my hearts hurts from it.
I am sharing some photos of the devastation in and around Colorado Springs, Colorado. All photos are via the web. Please pray for the workers fighting these fires and pray they make headway in getting them contained. Please pray for those whom have lost everything.
My mountains facing west from Colorado Springs....this was taken from the mall, and Pikes peak is behind the flames.
It is hard to believe these tree filled mountains are reduced to ash.
Homes in the Colorado Springs area......heart breaking.
Hwy. 24 Closed from Colorado Springs going west. This is the road we take to go to our cabin only a few miles away......
Hwy. 25.....never would I believe there would be an orange sky, and not crystal blue beauty to look at while driving down this freeway....
looking at part of Garden of the Gods....a well known tourist spot.
I can not imagine how it would be to see my home going up in smoke and flames.
I have a friend from High School that lives in the area and please keep her and her family in your prayers...her name is Patricia and she is ever close to all of this destruction.
Thanks for linking in today, and thanks for understanding why I am just not up for it. The familiar beauty that my husband and I call home is being wiped away in a blink of an eye....it is almost more than one can actually believe would be possible.
Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday.
