I picked up Miss Talking Trash (aka TnT, aka Debbie) first thing in the morning and the treats began. She is a sweetheart! We drove to Waco and met up with (left to right) Rene, Cher and Theresa at Bloom and Bee Swanky, owned and operated by the sweet Miss Amy.
Repeat after me: "Ooooo. Ahhhh." Wow. Cool store. Wonderful decorating ideas. Great products. Jewelry. Bedding. Lighting. Furniture. Vintage clothing. Old stuff. New stuff. Wonderful blending. This is how it's done. Go check it out. What a treat!
We bought there, then headed to a couple other shopping establishments in the area. Of course, I bought stuff all day long! Dominoes, flash cards, green mercury looking candlesticks, a champagne bucket, a flower topped stand, a wooden drawer, a cute spice jar, a display tree, a wire tree. Check out the boot I found on the side of the road. I made the grab as Cher and TnT laughed at me. No, it does not stink. OH! And a butter pat with "Mindy" written on it. They knew I was coming and saw "sucker" written on my forehead. In honor of the Chippy's (and because I am a sucker), I bought it. Trick, indeed! The trees and spice jar aren't for sale, but, anything else is up for grabs.
Margo's contest is over (click on her name to learn how to order your calendar) and a Texas size congrats to my very own Snakelover for having two photographs selected for publication. Suweet! What a treat! Here is David's flickr photostream if you would like to enjoy more of his pics.
