Pink October Giveway!!!

It's my first giveaway and it's in honor of October Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It's a pink belt buckle that's been bejeweled with everything I could find. I'd like to think the ballerina symbolizes getting back on your toes and recovering from treatment or maybe being on "point" to do self breast exams! I've put a couple of other little things to go with it including a vintage 3 strand of pearls.

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, the winner will be picked on October 30th! I would also love it if you could grab my giveaway button and put it on your blog to help me spread the word. Please have a look around my blog while you are here. I'm a new to Blogland so I'd love to make some new friends! Thanks for stopping by!

She'd been raised to have poise, modest and grace.

She'd been raised to have poise, modest with grace, but right now she was enjoying the sun on her face. She felt one with with nature, inhibitions gone, when a voice out of the clouds said "Stella put your clothes back on!" She looked at the man like he was from mars, said, "Oh what's the fuss, now pass me that jar." He looked at her and then back at the jar, then realized it was the one he snuck home from the bar. He knew he'd be in  trouble when she woke from this bubble so he stripped off his clothes and poured himself a double. 


They woke the next morning in a moonshine haze and a smile came to his face when he gave her a gaze. She laid next to him in a field of flowers, then she shot up like a bolt  and said "church starts in an hour!" The girl in the field ran into the house, only to run out as a small church mouse. A she sat in the pew her head thick as tar,  she wanted to know what was in that jar!  It had the kick of a mule but it made her feel free, she needed to find out who the gift angel could be! 

When she got home from church her husband's head low, oh she's gonna be mad, I'm gonna sleep in the car! But she shocked him for the first time since they'd wed under the stars, when she smiled sweetly and said "did you bring home that jar?"

Wilma and Edna were sisters but nothing alike!

Wilma and Edna, twin sisters but nothing alike. Wilma's hair had curls and poor Edna's had spikes. So when Wilma got married her veil was as soft as a cat, while ol' Edna's veil looked like an old shower cap.Wilma married an actor with sunny hair and blue eyes, Edna married for love, when he proposed she even cried. 

Now Edna's married, in a house with feather beds while poor Wilma's been left for a man named Fred! So the moral of this story holds true till today, never marry a man too pretty, he'll never ever stay.

Birthday Trip to Round Top Texas September 2010

Wow what a wonderful birthday trip! We were 5 crazy girls from Fort Worth in an adorable little house...with only one bathroom! We shopped for days till I thought we would just drop but we would  go back to our little cottage to sleep and dream of all the things to look for the next day! 
We met wonderful, precious people, who invited us to the best parties....
We ate at Royers about 100 times, Bud was a doll as usual and the food is always beyond fabulous. That's where we had my birthday party, it was so much fun the entire restaurant got involved! 
But, the fun really started when we went to the Junk Gypsy Prom!! I didn't think we'd ever leave the house we were laughing at each other so hard putting on our wild outfits. We all wore petticoats and pink cowboy hats, it's party trick to dress alike, that way it's easier to find each other! 

We saw, we partied, we danced with men in formal wear,law enforcement, and then got home without having to make a phone call for bail money!! 
But then it was time to go back to Fort Worth. So it was sad seeing Round Top in my rear view mirror, but I'm gonna click my heels twice and come back in the spring! And I'm bringing my duck!

Magnolia Pearl Heaven

I felt like Alice in Wonderland who just fell down the rabbit hole, and landed in a fantasy land of poetry in lace and happiness on a hanger. I was awe of the vast creativity, yet simplicity of Robin and John's booth.

I couldn't decide if this was the Queen of Hearts or Alice herself. Can you believe they made these dress forms! Is there anything they can't do? I think not. I saw this at the front of the booth and my heart skipped a beat 
and a ran head first into the first rack of clothes I could find. Poor Faith was covered in my "want" pile in no time.
I loved these paper magnolias and of coarse the outfit, which I bought! I stress fractured my foot so it was kinda funny watching me hobble around the hay in a frenzy of buying! But it didn't slow me down to much. My 
friends did come check on me after two hours though...I was fanning myself as Cindy wrote my bill up, thank goodness I was sitting down!
And this was the slow time. The flowers beside Robin are from John for her. What a sweet couple.
I loved meeting Robin and John, what a beautiful couple, I mean please, do they wake up looking that cute?  I couldn't do that even on my best day in my best MP!
Miss Cindy after I had just bought the jacket off her back! I mean I really did buy the jacket off her back! Well, and the dress too... hey they were a set, I had to!
My last look of Pearl in my rear view mirror, I'll be clicking my heels together come spring cause "there's no place like Magnolia Pearl."magnoliapearl.com

Round Top Photos Fall 2010

On your marks, get ready....GO SHOPPING!
I wanted this so bad but where on earth would I put it?? I thought maybe a floor lamp? I'm  still kicking myself for not getting it!
My husband hates it when I go to estate sales because he says I'm buying dead people's stuff, so this booth was perfect! And I bought something!
Now who could resist not playing with these!!
Too many choices and not enough time to look at everything!
Just beautiful, it's much bigger in person so it was really impressive!
Saw these at Clutter, too neat, I love that place! I have never come to Round Top and not gone home with something from Clutter.
Handy idea to hang odds and ends of lace, where do I gt one of those?
I loved my horse growing up, I wish they made one for big girls! I'm pooped and I could use a ride about now!
These looked like grave markers but I'm not sure. They're not hide-a keys that's for sure.
There were just tables after tables of these beautiful old books, the rows were endless.
Loved this but just too pricey. That's the end of this day, more tomorrow!!
