Mister and I headed to Round Top this past Friday and had the finest time despite the blustery weather and of course a lack of serious cash for things that I desperately need. Here are a few of said items:
We parked the car after sitting in quite a bit of traffic and from the lot I could see this monster's silhouette coming out of the wall. OUTSTANDING. I have never seen this mount before-- I had a place for him all picked out.
He was perfect. I could have really loved him.
He was $1150.00 and was therefore a tiny bit over the cash I had come with. And Mister doesn't understand need like I do.
The next picture is from a tent that a gentleman had full of Victorian children's caskets.
Questions: 1) How are you so terrible that you get into selling children's caskets? Where is your mother?
2) What are you doing to acquire VINTAGE children's caskets? Where do these vintage children go? How is no one else picking up on this? Should we call someone?
Ever seen an image of your mister and then thought -- that guy is so handsome?? -- I did. What a doll. And then that ship was to die for too, but for $2200.00 I had a real pause. But is could have been divine on my buffet. But the handsome man said NO and in the end he may be better than the ship. Tall, dark & handsome? I'll take it. Left with no boat.
Round Top is not only for the quirky, but for the divine as well. With the proper cash flow, you could indeed outfit an entire home with the gorgeous things found throughout the week. The above piece is an example of just that.
It is only fair to admit that when I did spy a fantastic lucite console from a mildly intoxicated vendor, the mister handed me his cash with no objection whatsoever. It was a good move on everyone's part.
AND I got a big chunk of quartz, a cold Shiner Bock, and a rad (if totally over-played at this point) wooden candle holder that I have replaced all of the bulky containers on my work table with. It has freed up a huge amount of real estate.
Apart from shopping with the masses in the country, I have also completed three Willie as Indian & Cowboy pieces.
Willie as Indian & Cowboy III, I & II
Until I get a shopping cart feature taken care of on this site, you can find all available works and their contact information through a Pinterest Board aptly entitled Available Willies. Go here. And always remember that I am more than happy to customize your Willie to your personal needs.
I'm also announcing that I have once again quit smoking. And I mean it this time.
I had quit for several years, several years ago and just had never gotten around to getting that done again. I have always known that it was dumb, but I do enjoy the enjoyable and I have always looked so cool catcalling & smoking on the corner.
RIP cigarettes. You were my finest friend.
And then Merle died on his 79th birthday and I cried and cried. He was a great songwriter, father to many, and an outlaw of fabulous proportions. We were lucky to have had him.
I include here my favorite Merle song and one that I kind of consider a personal theme. Mama Tried. It just gets no better.
