Ice Carving

No wander Sarah is good at carving pumpkins! Look what she can do with a chain saw and a block of Ice! I can only imagine what my sculpture would end up looking like! I'd probably be so slow it would be puddle of water before I could get done! I am so proud of her!

Pumpkin Time

This is Sarah my youngest daughter and her son Willie, my grandson. She makes sure every holiday is special for him, she's such a good mother. Like all other young children he loves Halloween.
Sarah is only one semester away from being a CHEF!
And boy can she cook!

Willie is trying to decide if he wants to put his hand in the pumpkin!
Here goes!


At last the pumpkin has a face!

This is Sarah's boyfriend Jeff.

Happy Halloween!!

The Home of LuLu Redstar

While we were in Atlanta we had the honor of having dinner with LuLu Redstar and Phil, her sweet husband. I also had the honor of taking pictures of her home! Thank you LuLu!

Anyone who knows LuLu, knows she's a wild and crazy kinda gal! She's a hoot! Her home reflects her personality to a Tee! It's sorta oriental, country, frenchie, bohemian with tons of cool art! Not sure of any one word that would describe her style.

I really enjoyed the tour of her home, and the wonderful dinner she and Phil prepared for us to share. These are only a few of the pictures I took, I will post more next time.

Her home sits on top of a hill.

It was almost to dark to take pictures of the garden.

This is in the kitchen.

This is the family room.
Living room.

Foyer, most of the cool things in her home have a story to tell,
LuLu has traveled to many different countries.

Dinning room.


I love this dressing table.
And this is the Leopard Lounge, she even has a disco ball!
Imagine that!

And these are the
Leopard Lounge Lizards!!!
Lauri and LuLu

Thanks again LuLu, fun was had by all.

Clown Wig Pics

This is LuLu Redstar one of the 2Chippys trying on the fabulous clown wig! Looks real good on her, sorta natural! Yes?

And poor Lauri the (other2chippy) by the time she got to try on the wig she had one to many! Yes?

And this is a friend of Lauri and LuLu's, he was having way to much fun with the clown horn and the ball fringe around his neck! Needless to say we were all having so much fun everyone thought we were a little tipsy!

Are we still moving?

When we got home Monday night and I laid down in the bed, I felt like I was still moving! We have traveled so much in the last 5 weeks, I'm ready to stay home for a while.

The Lakewood show was a little soft this time, I think people are still trying to get over the fact they didn't have any gas for about a month, and they are afraid to spend any money. But we had a great time with all our friends.

These first few pictures are of the 2Chippys booth! Of course they had a theme! (She Dreams of The Circus) Their booth was so creative, enjoy the pictures.

This little blue Cottage table had 6 chairs with it! Can you believe 6 chairs that matched? I think LuLu still has it if you are interested just let her know! 2Chippys

All the circus stuff just makes you smile!

Clown wig pictures are for another post!

Lauri had a Frenchie masculine twist on her side.

I loved this Texas fire insurance policy from 1929.

And this desk and chair, Oh La La!
Here are few shoots of my booth. My camera did something strange this time, it only took half of a picture. Not sure whats up with that, I will have to read up on what I did wrong!
We had some great small cupboards and a couple of cool benches.

This arch top door went to a happy customer.

Next post I will be featuring Ms. LuLu Redstars home, you don't want to miss it!

Lakewood 400

Don't forget to come out and see us at the Lakewood 400 this weekend. I'll be in the same booth that I was in at the Sept. show (but I can't remember the number). If you can't find us just ask at the office. The 2chippys will be set up a couple of booths down from us. I will be taking pictures of LuLu's house on this trip, I can't wait!

We will be leaving Wed. for the show, so I will be MIA for about a week.

A Few More Pics

Here are a few more pictures of our Marburger Farms show! Enjoy!

This is a cool cupboard base and top Craig married together. This is one of several things Rachel Ashwell bought.

As you can see I love picture frames.

Marburger Fall Show

Craig and I had a great time in Texas. We got to see all our old friends, make some new ones and best of all we sold tons of junk! It was helpful that we had the extra truck with inventory on it. We had some very large items this time, a 10ft. table with 6 legs, a church arch that was 7ft. tall and 7ft. wide, and a very heavy 8ft. tall cupboard that was all one piece. Thank goodness all the very large pieces sold and we didn't have to reload them. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

This salvage piece was to die for. Two ladies that build small cottages in Round Top are going to put it in their next cottage. They also bought a chandelier from Italy and a cool mantel to go in the house. I can't wait to see pictures of it.

This is the huge one piece cupboard.

Ran out of shelf space so I had to resort to hanging stuff up!

I like the sugars and creamers hanging on the mantel.

This cute little cupboard went to Linda of the Willows Nest. Some the things I sold this time seemed hard to part with. Most of the time I can let things go without a thought. I will post more pictures later!

Home At Last

Wheeeeeee! We are finally home! We had a great show, but it's always great to come back home! I guess it's true what they say there is no place like home.

I got to meet a lot of great bloggers that came looking for me. I was happy to meet each and every one of you. I loved it when someone came in the booth and said are you Theothertheresa? I met people from all over the US and one woman from Canada.

We had a record breaking show at Marburger. Not a lot of dealer sales, but a huge retail crowd. Although I did meet some new dealers. Oh, and my new booth space at the end of the tent was great.

Got to see and talk to Nancy Soriano and Frances Bailey from Country Living, that was a treat! Frances looked me up so she could tell me a couple of pictures of the house made it into the 2009 CL date book.

And boy, was it great to get to spend time will all my friends! There was only one person missing from the posse and that would be Sharon! Hopefully she can make it in the spring.

I got to see me son on two different occasions, and he is doing well.

I will post pictures soon!
