Come On Granny!

The Hillbillies ride again!! If all goes well we will be on the road in the morning! Look out Texas here we come!! I still have to load the clothes in the RV and we have a couple of things to put in the back seat of the pick-up! Just couldn't get all this junk in the box truck! We made sure to put Granny's couch on top so she could ride in comfort! She could even lay down if she wants!

I think I could get a couple more things in the box truck, what do you think? I see a small hole at the top right! You think you could get something else in there Craig??!!
Hee!! Hee!! I don't want to run out of stuff at Marburger! We will be gone for 2 weeks, but I plan to take a tons of pictures, I even got a new small camera last night so I can carry it in my pocket! That way I can point and shoot any time I see something I like. My other camera is so big and bulky it is hard to carry while you are shopping!
OMG! Did I say I was excited?? I am!!

You guys take care!

Sorry I've been MIA!

I can't hardly believe that Marburger time is here again! We have been working like crazy people to get things done around here! Slowly but surely it is all coming together! Some how I don't feel like I have a fabulous load this time. There are times when you know you have good stuff and you are really excited about decorating with that stuff! Then there are times when you feel like you stuff is a little generic and your not sure what you are going to do with it when you get to that 20 x 30 foot space in the plain white tent! You worry if you will be to tired to be inspired, or will things just fall into place! These are a few pictures of the fall show, and I was very excited about the load we had!

Make no mistake I am very excited about going to Texas, I can't hardly wait! We will be driving 2 trucks this time, just don't think it will all fit in the box truck! I have some very heavy industrial stuff that will have to ride in the back of the pick-up truck. So I dread that 22 hour drive to get to the show! But boy when I get there my heart starts beating real fast and I just can't wait to get out into some of those fields to meet and greet old friends and do some shopping!

I finally have my Internet up and running for the second time! The cable guy has been here 2 times this week, guess he is getting sick of me by now, but I think he fixed the problem this time!

Hope you enjoy these pics of past booth and I look forward to showing you pics of the spring booth! Keep you fingers crossed that I haven't lost my decorating mojo, been six months since we sat up at a show! Can you tell I'm nervous?

The Nest

We had the pleasure of shopping at
The Nest
while we were in Iowa! It was a cold day outside, but inside the store, the only thing on our minds was spring! Birds, bird nest, eggs, moss, flowers, rabbits, frogs, I could go on, but I think you get the picture. The shop was very well displayed, hats off to Amy for a job well done! If you see something you can't live without go to Amy's web site, I'm sure she'd be happy to get it right out to you! Enjoy pictures!

Great Time In Iowa

I love these black and white plates with birds!
As you know by now I had a great time in Iowa! It happens to be one of my favorite shopping places! The shops there are fabulous, well not all of them, but I do have my favorites!
Sisters Garden and Bloom happen to be one of those! If you haven't been to her blog you must go visit and tell her I sent you! She plans to have a web site very soon. I hope you enjoy these pics, I have more but I have to save some for later.

Who can resist tons of pearls?

Mercury glass mushrooms with speckled eggs.

These flowers are new, but they looked old.

More bird eggs

You can't help but think of spring with
all the birds, eggs, feathers and nest!

Great flower holder

Garden Club Sign

These eggs looked real!
