Taken a Break

I'll be away from the internet for a bit.  Time to recharge my batteries.  Here's a little something till I get back....

Now where'd I put that miniskirt.....  ;)


What a Poser

If you're ever looking for some self portrait pose ideas, this is your goto video.

I seriously wish I had thought of this.....


Please Pick the Flowers

Well, it's hot here.  Today my car read 106 before 2pm!  Needless to say, there aren't many flowers in these parts - as they need a less hostile environment to thrive.  My rose bushes bloom, but by the time the evening rolls around, they're - literally - toast!

Needless to say, I was delighted to find these alternatives to the real thing while nosing around Etsy today.  I love each and every one of these beauties. 

Beautiful tissue....

And these make me want to get married all over again, just so I could have one on my dresser.
So lovely......

Goin' Junkin'

So this past Sunday was supposed to be one of the hottest days here, thus far (103!).  What do we decide to do? Go to the Flea Market at the Cattle Barn in Fort Worth, of course!  There's no air conditioning!  That's how much my husband, son and I LOVE goin' junkin', as my mother used to call it.

Still, we were not prepared for just how HOT it was inside - even though they did have giant fans blowing.  We only stayed 30 minutes and I didn't buy anything this time.  I just wondered around with my camera so I could share this with you.  I usually give my son $5 and he goes wild!  On this day he managed to buy two action figures.  He even haggled someone down from $3 to $2!!  That's my boy.

It was a little skimpy.  Who could blame anyone for not showing up. 

Vintage jars.
I just know there's something in here I need.  Oh Yeah!  Fake chicken leg!!

Vintage 1930's cast iron toy car.


All original vintage 1930's car with matching trailer.  LOVE!!  If I had the $600.00 cash in my pocket, I would have walked out with this thing.  I really SHOULD carry more cash!
She's looking over at my favorite room.  The room with the only air conditioner FULL of vintage snapshots.  I've posted many of my finds here.
