Texas...Looks A lot Like...Iowa...

Had a Great Day! In Sooo Many Ways...Great seeing Everyone! Janet...Connie...Linda... Soooo Many Blog Followers...WOW! Thanks For Swingin' By!
Lynn, Lea and Peg.... were PRICELESS! {Especially, tonight at supper....Cindy B. joined us, at My Happy Place....We Laughed SO Hard! {our neighbors.... said our laughter was contagious...and it was Great to hear us laugh...I'll tell ya... we were ROLLING!!!!...oh my...Sorry....for any inconvenience....but...we had an Amazing Time...Tomorrow...we are going to be a group of 25.... Whew....Michael's... Love It!} {ya'll are invited!}
I had some Lovely Gals come through.... who do 'Round Top' in Texas.... I often am asked, if I do 'Texas'....I never have.... I always say..'no'... the Gal said..."You look a lot like 'Texas'... well...'You' don't...Your 'Look', is 'Texas'...I stood there, for a moment, and replied...
"No...I don't look like Texas.... Texas, looks a lot like, 'Iowa'...."
It was a Great Day...Peg and I are....ready to call it....
The Booth turned out Great! Thanks to Peg, Lea and Lynn....! By the time, I had a moment, to take images...it was disassembled... Lynn and Lea brought all sorts of cuttings from the Farm...Corn Stalks...Wild Cherries...{looks like white Bittersweet! COOL!} Pumpkins...and Gourds....Lovely! Peg sold 90% of her Amazing Gourds....wow....We hung huge Plum Colored Theatre Drapes, on the wall...with all sorts of lace....and french toile... then had the 9 foot corn stalks, in front of the velvet... and, behind a gnarly, old, old work bench....it was pretty cool! Paul Bunyan, was mighty pleased, to be back at Gold Rush! I'll try and Fluff...and take a few images, tomorrow....I expect it to be Very Busy, tho....
Lynn had fun... shopping...and visiting with Folk!
Here's my neighbor, Laura {the rusty pumpkin} and her Pal, Cathy! What Fun Girls! {Cathy said, after I took the image..."I wondered what the heck was in your hand... A CAMERA!.." I caught her off guard! She is Such a Sweetie Pie!
Laura, with a Cool Jeweler's Cabinet...it lasted about 5 minutes, in her area.... It sold, Immediately! To Alice, and John...{Alice's Wonderland, Mt. Vernon, Iowa} It was Great seeing them!
Lynn, and Lea... Laughing their Tails off... at Supper...and Guess what Comedian they were laughing...and pointing at....
Ahhhh...yep...That would be Peg.... She and Cindy B., were very entertaining....Peg...truly had us all...ROLLING! Oh Dear...The March Hare....
{Lea was actually crying....so was Peg...they were laughing so hard! I gotta tell ya...we were so tired... it felt Great to Cut Loose! Oh Man!}
See Ya!

Oh Barb I'm so happy to hear you're having a good time. I have no clue what is going on, but once again I think our minds are thinking alike...the way you described your booth sounds a lot like what I have planned for my fall display...scary. Please try to take more pictures, even if it's a little messy. Remember you're a diva, the best, a big dog...

Wish I were there. Everything looks amazing. We've always told everyone when they asked why we like to go antiqueing in Iowa, that we love that Iowa-look. You are definitely a Big Dawg Diva. Have a great Sat. Jan
