What My Eyes Have Seen Lately


So.....

The Market was a no go yesterday,
cloudy, threatening rain, a tad bit windy...

Plato Loco, Waxahachie, TX.

I went into town (Waxahachie) anyway just to get out.
I had breakfast in the little café
across the street from this Ý photo
Then I walked up the street to the "Junk In The Trunk" event around the
courthouse square.

Waxahachie, Tx. Courthouse
About 15 vendors set up selling all kinds of junk.
I bought a brooch for $5.00 and a mini park bench for $1.00.
I'm going to use the bench as a show prop and the brooch as a Terry prop.

Then I walked the few blocks over to the junk store
and found this ß for $2.00, (another show prop)
needs some work though.





On my kitchen counter
Then I perused the many antique/gift stores around the square.
I saw a lot of items in the antique stores that I have, and use on a daily basis.
Like.....
My breadbox, my cast iron corn stick pans, my Fiesta ware, my potato masher,
my cast iron skillets, my Eagle Snacks tin, my Coke tins.....
Just to name a few!
Most had hefty price tags.
I never knew my breadbox was worth $39.95,
the bread should be honored to reside within!

I did have fun though, looking at how things were displayed,
getting ideas for my own display....

I even ran across some Steam punk jewelry,
which was quite a surprise!
All in all it was a good day, although, not very profitable. 

But, maybe I needed a rest, a little eye candy, some fresh input?

The rain showed up today, a steady, all day type of rain.
Not good for painting, the suitcase will just have to wait.

I spent the better part of the day viewing blogs and trying to comment.
Notice I say "trying to comment", google was not cooperating.
I made some muffins using Sue's jam cake recipe, thanks Sue!
And generally just screwed around.


Neighbors' house, Ennis, TX.


Saw this Ý Friday when I was hanging clothes on the line.
?????????????????????

Saw this ß  in Marshall the last time I took Nathan back.

Marshall, TX.

Well, that's all I have for today,
till next time, stop and smell the roses!

My only guess is termite spraying?

My vote is for termites with the neighbor's house. That or they are hosting a not-so-secret-squirrel circus.

I love going to antique stores! I always find the neatest things there. Never anything I could afford, but still fun to look nonetheless.
