Come See Us!

When I was a kid, we'd go to visit my Grandmom and whether we were there for an afternoon or a week,when it was time to go, Grandmom always hugged our necks and said "Come see us!" This confused me. We were there. We'd been there. But, she wanted us to know we were welcome to come back. And the sooner the better.

Grandmom would have loved Robelyn of redneck chic. I can just see Grandmom pinching her cheeks and teasing her about her crazy red hair. They would share toothy grins and have a mutual admiration club. When it was time to go, Grandmom would hug Robelyn and say "Come see us!"
Kelly & Robelyn Hug
(My sister hugs Robelyn)

As for Cathy of Girls Gone Junkin', I think Grandmom would enjoy all the lace and fashion that IS Cathy. Grandmom liked creating and I think she and Cathy could chat and share and inspire til the cows come home. Without a doubt, Grandmom would hug Cathy and holler at her as she drove off "Come see us!"

I haven't had the privilege of meeting Pam and Sue of GGJ, but as much as Grandmom would enjoy Cathy, I believe she would giggle with Pam and Sue, too. The way I figure, if they hang out with Cathy, Grandmom would hug 'em as they departed and yell out "Come see us!"

Grandmom never met David. If she were here today, she'd give him the once over, ask him a few questions about his intentions and she'd hug his neck, cover her teeth with her lips and gnaw on his jawbone. This was the ultimate show of love, the gnawing of the jawbone. (Yes. Quirky runs in my family!) Then, as David loaded up the truck and put it in reverse, Grandmom would stand at the end of the driveway, wave and yell at David "Come see us!"

Tomorrow, Saturday, February 26 from 10-5, there will be lots of talent under the same roof at The Primitique. Robelyn, Cathy, Sue, Pam and David will be joining me for Tailgates & Trunks. The weather will be glorious. The shopping will be amazing. And the company can't be beat.

Come see us. We'll help you shop. We'll help you load. And when you leave, I can't promise a jaw gnaw, but we will wave and holler, "Come see us!"

Happy Friday!


ps. If you can't come see us, go see Val of Red Shed Antiques. She's throwing a shindig tomorrow, too!

  2. Mindy:
    We'll be in town for a week after March 5th....just may try to come out there since we will be visiting my folks in Forney, Wylie, and friends in Greenville. Royse City isn't THAT far away. Not sure if we are driving yet....we may fly. Course, when Henry drives he DOES fly! Would love to see what you have....I am looking for stuff to put on the wall in my greenhouse, and some unique wall art and pots, etc. Anyway, will touch base with you when I know more about this trip! Would love to see you!
    BTW, my daughter Jenna has lost more than 70 lbs and is looking great!
