BLOG PARTY



Sunday afternoon Teresa of Garden Antqs Vintage hosted a blog party. We had a wonderful time and Teresa had a lovely table set for us with wine and Hors D'oeuvres. Here are a few photos from the party. I enjoyed meeting every single one of you ladies and I hope to see you all again very soon. Andy & I have gained so much knowledge and inspiration from the new blog world. Thanks to everyone who contributes. Love to all, Susan

WARRENTON OR BUST !!!


Well, once again old Brownie got us there. Andy promised her she could retire after this show if she would just get us there! Boy did we bring some loads! I drove the van packed up and Andy's uncle pulled the cargo trailer. My dad had room in the back of his pickup so we just filled it up too!! We decided to hire out the unpacking and those guys (2 of them) put us to shame. What took us days to load took them 1 hour to unload. We were so glad to see all our friends (family now). We had missed them all. We were concerned about how the show would go, (with the hurricane and the economy being bumpy) but so far it's been ok. Being as I had to come home and get back to the real job, I'll have a little time to post. Andy rode back home with me last week and filled up the van again. I sure hope we can sell bunches of junk so I won't have to find a place for it all when we get home. To anyone thinking about going and shopping, just hurry and get there! The weather has been very warm, but this week is supposed to be better. Don't miss out on lots of fun! There is something going on somewhere the entire time. This past weekend we attended the party at Leftovers in Brenham. There was a book signing there by the wonderful Mary Emmerling. We also met her husband Reggie and had a wonderful visit. The store was unbelievable as usual. I'll post more as the days progress.

INTRODUCING "GERTRUDE" GUARDIAN OF THE GARDEN

Andy has been after me to get Gertrude introduced to everyone. Remember that sale a while back where we hauled off 2 pickup and trailer loads? Well, she came from there! She is injured, but he loves her just the same. She just looks wonderful down at "Fred's World" by the garden fence. Best part she and the base only cost $7 Sure was heavy though, but when it comes to Fred's rocks, there's no stopping him!!!

JUNK JEWELRY



OK, you junk jewelry girls! I have been collecting all this stuff so I can make some jewelry of my own and guess what? How in the world did I think I would have the time! So, therefore, I am going to pack it all up and cater to all you girls!! Yes, come check out our booth at Bar W Field at Warrenton. We call our row the "Porta Potty Row". It doesn't officially have a row number, but it is at the northeast corner at the EXIT to the Farm Road. If you know where Renee Jackson's booth is, we join her. If you still can't find us, just ask someone where Cowboy Andy & Susan are. Andy is creating some awesome art work. Can't wait to show you!

FRED'S FAMOUS PECAN PIE


Andy makes the best pecan pie! He uses his aunt's recipe so he can't take all the credit, but man he can put the scald on it!! See how organized he starts out. (He didn't know I took this picture) We wiped it out so fast, I didn't even get to snap a photo of the finished product! Notice our Texas Ware bowl? I counted 12 in the cabinet now. 3 different sizes. Wandering how to date them. Andy did a little research and found they still made them up in the 90's. Does anyone out there know much more about them? We just love all the colors.
