First, let me start by saying that I hope everyone's Christmas was Merry and Happy! Even if you didn't get gobs of presents, we should all be thankful for having our families and loved ones around us during this Season....
that's the biggest Blessing of all!
Now, on to the final White Wednesday of 2009!
This last installment of WW for this year consists of some of my own personal collections and pics of things or collections that I'd like to have one day!
Let's start with some of my collections~
And now for some of my favorites and what's on my Wish List~
I hope you enjoyed my WW
and may all your wishes come true in the New Year!

White Wednesday~

I apologize for not being consistent with 'White Wednesday'. So with the weather being too cold outside to be shopping and doing what I need to do to prepare for Christmas...I thought this would be a good time to join in the fun. It's too warm and cozy in my house to not want to indulge in today's 'White'.
Here's a few pics of my home in 'White' dressed for the Holidays!
Enjoy and stay warm~

Warm Wishes To You and Yours~



Peace, Love, and Blessings~

I know it's been a while since my last post but my computer has been sick and just got out of the hospital.
I do hope that everyone's Thanksgiving was super! I was very blessed to be able to spend the day with my family and eat way too much. But hey, isn't that what it's all about?
My home and table~
So, with Turkey Day over it is now time to tackle the task of decorating for the Holidays, do some shopping and so much more. Next week I will attempt to get my house decorated and maybe do some entertaining before December really gets crazy. Christmastime has always been one of my favorite times to decorate and entertain. To me it's the one time of the year that conservatives like me go out a little more than usual with their decorating.

May your Holiday Season be filled with Peace, Love, and Laughter.


Monday's Show and Tell~

Happy Monday to all!
I want to start this post by saying that I hope your weekend was grand and may your week be equally great.
Since coming back from Warrenton I haven't been much for junkin' so today I decided to treat myself to a visit of one of my favorite places in town, The Outpost Resale Shop. They are putting out Christmas decor and I came upon some santos that I thought would make a nice addition to my small but dear collection.
I love Santos that have the chipped paint, vibrant old colors and just to imagine where they were once loved and by whom. It's the Old World Style that I like to use when decorating for the Holidays or anytime of year for that matter.

Here's a close-up of the church I also picked up today. It's actually a candlholder, but I loved that it was silver and a little tarnished. The Clay Rosary was not purchased today but I did acquire this beauty last week while stopping in at Laurent Street Antique Mall. I absolutely fell in love with this rosary awhile back and when it was marked down I had to have it. It sits proudly around my favorite dress form in my bedroom.

Have a blessed day~


And The Winners Are~

Connie Meyer of She Dreams Big and Theresa Cano of Garden Antqs Vintage. Congratulations ladies for your stories and for taking the time to do so. It's always a pleasure when a fellow blogger takes the time to leave you a comment or just to say Hi!
Connie's story was to me a very sweet and exciting story, she is going to be a Grandma! It's always wonderful to hear that a baby is on the way, not much can beat that! Congratulations! Connie, we can't wait to see pictures of the baby.
Theresa's story was a funny one because it involved a very sweet helper from Zapp Hall named Jose. It was pouring down rain and he wasn't going to let that stop him from helping whomever he could help that needed it. So, he decided to dress himself in black trashbags to try to keep a little dry. I don't know that it helped him stay dry, but his heart was in the right place.
Thanks so much to everyone that took the time to write about their story. I enjoyed reading all of them. Some were all too familiar when it comes to being in Round Top/Warrenton.
And now for the prize these lovely ladies will be receiving. These giftbags and tags are handmade by moi! I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them for you.

Peace, Love and Blessings~



A Happy Halloween~

Fall is definitely in the air. The sun is peeking out and the birds are singing. So Nice!
It's a chilly Halloween morning here in South Texas. I can remember when I was growing up that Halloween seemed to be the start of the Fall season. Everyone was decorating their homes with hay bales and pumpkins. Plus it was about the only time we were allowed to eat so much candy that we didn't want any for about a month. This year my decorating is very limited but I did want to share with you some vignettes that I put together at the last minute.

Here's wishing you and yours

a very

Spirit-ed Halloween!


Warrenton and A Fall Giveaway~

Well, I'm back! Sorry for the delay in posting on the Warrenton Fall show but I decided to take some time off from blogging for awhile to re-coup. As you can imagine when you've been gone for 2 weeks straight things can get very busy around the house. As soon as I got back I had to catch up on all the cleaning, washing, etc. and of course spending time with my family. My daughter showed her pig at the County Fair this week and tonight is the auction. Many great things happening for her and I don't want to miss out on anything. She will be in high school next year and then off to college...where does the time go!
Aside from being almost washed away with all the rain this was a very interesting show. I'm sure that every dealer that was set-up in Warrenton and anyone else that attended the Fall Show for that matter has a story or two to tell about this show. I wanted to do something different to kick the Fall season off right. So, I'm doing a giveaway that involves everyone...not only if you were there or not...tell me your most interesting story during that 2 week span and I will pick my favorite and post about it and send you a gift.
How does that sound! Well...what are you waiting for?
Here's a few pics of my booth....and I do mean a few! I lost most of the pictures on my camera....don't ask me how...they're just gone!
Can't wait to hear from everyone!
Fall Blessings
My Home to Yours~

White Wednesday & Canton Trip~

Kathleen's White Wednesday's are too special not to miss...so I am combining my Canton trip post with today's White Wednesday.
I had a special traveler with me on my trip...Linda Gregory (I have featured her shop before in Victoria called Past Time). She was going to Canton that same week so we decided to go together and enjoy ourselves for a few days. We went to Huntsville to meet up with Theresa Cano of Garden Antqs and followed her to Canton the next day. What was really special about this trip is the southern hospitality that was given to us not only on the day we got there but the whole trip. Marion, Theresa's "Junkin' Buddy" was a wonderful host to have us over for a summer lunch at her home on Wednesday when we arrived. I can't tell you how thrilled Linda and I were to be treated so special. Being in Marion's home was all we needed to get those creative juices going. Marion has a very special talent for putting together the most sweetest and interesting vignettes together. I will feature her home in a later post, I'm sure you have seen her home on Theresa's blog....just beautiful! Theresa and Marion "Junkin' Buddy" were such wonderful hosts for putting up with us during the trip to Canton. They are junkin' pros and well...we are just amateurs. They were very patient with us. We thank you both for all you did to make our trip a memorable one.
Now, I want to share some photos of a few things that I picked up on my trip. You will be able to see the rest in Warrenton at the show in my booth at Tree Park Field.

This baby picture was given to me as a b-day present from Linda. She bought it for the frame it was in and I fell in love with the picture and now it's mine!

I Love It!!!!

Thanks so much Linda, you're too sweet!

The baby shoes are a favorite of mine..I love baby shoes and clothes, any kind of baby item. Check out the mannequin I bought from Theresa...I had to have her when I saw her in person.

Just Darling!

I don't know if you can see them real well, but I also picked up a great pair of gold sconces.

And I can't decided if I want to sell this mantle or the other one I bought in Canton....decisions, decisions....oh! well you'll just have to come see me and check it out for yourself.

Again, Myself and Linda had a great time and we hope to join Theresa and Marion again real soon.




Junkin' Finds~

It's Monday and I'm so excited about this week. There are some interesting things going on and I want to share them with you. First, I headed out to one of my favorite places in town this morning...The Outpost Resale Shop. Take a look at some of the things I picked up while there. A baby doll, a creamy vase, a couple of ironstone plates, and some odd pieces of glassware.
But my most favorites of them all is this unique magnetic hurricane tracking map. I thought it was the neatest thing, it tells you about "How A Hurricane Is Born". Too Cool! It's got some rust on it but hey, a little rust never hurt no one!

And now, for the really interesting news. I am going on a small buying trip to Canton this Wednesday thru Friday before I head to Warrenton in a couple of weeks! I will be joining Theresa of Garden Antqs Vintage and her "Hubby" Cruz and "Junkin' Buddy" Marion. I am so excited about this and hope to see some of you in Canton!

Here's to everyone and a Good Junkin' Week~




Another White Wednesday~

O.K.....I know it seems that the only time I do a post is on White Wednesday's. I just can't seem to find enough time to sit down and download all the pics that I take and then come up with a "catchy" title and something to say that goes with all the photos and blah, blah, blah!!! I won't bore you with all of this I think you all know how this goes.
Today's White Wednesday consists mainly of my booth when I ran in the other day to fill in some spots that needed tweakin'.
Don't forget to stop by Kathleen's at Faded Charm and check out all the White Wednesday participants!
Have a great week!
Peace, Love and Blessings~
