More Treats than Tricks

Slap your momma and holler "Yee Haw!" cuz, yesterday was more fun than the law should allow. Treats galore!

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.


  1. I can only imagine you two together! Second thought, no I can't. What a day you two must have had. I love the nick name TnT... wait till you try her Martinis!

  2. You are DANGEROUS with a camera, girlfriend! It was a ton of fun.

    Congratulations, David. Way to snap!

    The Texas woman

  3. Woohoo! Congrats to David on the photos!

    Sounds like you girls had too much fun! Care to make the trek to Ohio so I can have some junking buddies?


  4. Congratulations, David-see what happens when you run with the rich and famous. I tell you girl, that one photo knocks me out. It looks like a barbershop quartet minus an escapee(get it?) I had a great time and watch out Judy Hill, we may be headed in your direction next! Tn'T

  5. I talked to Theresa on Saturday night, but she didn't tell me about seeing all you guys. Looks like you guys had a great time, wish I'd been there. TNT is a hoot!

  6. We did have the best time, as you can see from the photo!! Sorry TOT, by the time I talked with you I was feeling really tired, didn't mean to leave this out :) We'll have to do this again!

  7. The spice jar with the watch picture frame is cool. Thanks for the congrats on the calendar photos. Glad you guys had a great time!

  8. Hey, I recognize that champagne bucket! I'm a dealer at Bloom and Bee Swanky, but I could not be there Saturday, so maybe I'll see all of you another time!
