I Scream, You Scream,

We all scream for ice cream! When I was but a child, on the last day of school at the end of the day, if we passed into the next grade (and we always did!), Mom would take us out for ice cream. It was a treat that we always looked forward to.

As the day approaches for the Big Poetry Sale and the Blog Party, I have decided not to kill myself cookin'. Instead, for all you bloggers who come out to my house after the sale, I will provide the makings for some hot fudge sundaes. Hey, if I survive this big sale, after being sick for the last week, it will feel like I've passed on to the next grade! It will be a treat for all of us! Several of you have responded that you are coming to the sale. I am so excited to see some familiar faces and to meet some new friends.

Go back here and tell me if you will be coming to my house for ice cream so I can make sure I have enough Blue Bell. I am aiming to be packed up and ready to go by 3pm. You can come to the sale at your leisure, hit other local shops and then rally back at Primitiques by 3pm. We'll all entourage to my house from there. It's not a 5 minute drive. Sound like a plan?

Now, if y'all read David's last post, you know I am ripe to steal some of his flickr, here ya go!
All Dolled Up
David and I played dress up in Eureka Springs. The man is killer in a pair of chaps, let me tell ya! Go here to see another pose.
Here, I hold the ingredients (butterscotch schnapps and Bailey's cream) for a fine concoction. Good stuff! I really, really liked this box filled with old bulbs. David knew it wouldn't fit in the truck, so, we opted for a picture instead.

Happy Thursday!


  1. I like the box and lightbulbs, too. And wow Marshall Dillon and Miss Kitty have nothing on you two!! (I know I'm revealing my age here)

  2. Hey girlfriend!

    I see you are gearing all up for Warrenton and now I see you are getting ready for a sale???? :) Great stuff you are finding there...thank you for your loving comments at the Yaya, and all you have to do is call me when you are headed back to Houston, and I will MAKE sure to be there and welcome ya'll in with open arms!

    Have a beautiful and loving weekend! xo...deb

  3. What a picture!!! I've always wanted to do one of these dress-up pictures. How fun.


  4. Oh, I wish I could come up for the sale, & ice cream!!! ;)
    xoxo trailer trash
    P.S.I think I might need that drink recipe!

  5. you may like the chaps, but I'm guessing that's not what he's liking. :)
    Great pic.

  6. I wonder what butterscotch schnapps and Bailey's would taste like over Blue Bell's?

  7. YaYa Deb, Mom's next appt in Houston is July 21. We'll meet Theresa in Huntsville for lunch and then probably head your way before Mom's appt. I'll let you know when it's closer. Thanks! I'd love to see your place!

    Amy, the drink is called a buttery nipple. Indeed. It is half Irish Cream and half butterscotch schnapps. Most folks drink it as a shot. I prefer to sip it as a cocktail.

    Margo, there IS a lot of boobage going on, isn't there? Eeek!

    Debbie, if you are in town, come see us and we'll find out together. You might be onto something. Buttery Nipples on'll have to work on a name for it, if it's as good as I think it will be!


  8. Hi, Mindy, I see you are another junker too. What cute pics of you & your hubby, love those western photos. Thank you for stopping by to see me!

  9. I want ice cream! I love the cart below--the sink is cool in it, maybe with a board to fir over half the sink as some type of potting table?


I smile when I see each new comment. Ideas, acknowledgements, sharing. Your words are always appreciated. Thank you!
