Take a bus, drive a car, ride a donkey, but get to Warrenton, Texas!

Yes, I mean YOU! Get there! You won't regret it.

You will regret not taking a wallet full of money, a trailer or pickup, comfortable shoes, a wide-brimmed hat, a bottle of water, and an extra peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Here's a sample of the goodies you'll find there:

big flowers,

(well, maybe they were phonographs),
blue jars,
Theresa of Garden Antqs,
pumpkins that match your chairs,
A Junk Queen (Renee),
Indians (and I think I also saw a cowboy or two),
a creek bed of cranes,

baby heads (I don't understand the heads but I did like the stacked, flat bottles),

colorful coffeepots,
Andy of Found Around Fred's Place,
(for those of you confused, Andy is Fred!)

Andy's pipes,

pendulum clocks,
round wheels,

kids' chairs,
Ruthie's new dolls,
and good advice.


  1. My heart is thumping hard. Thank you, my friend, for the insight. I love Theresa's black umbrellas. Isn't she brilliant? And the stacked flat bottles rock. OH! And the blue jars. Way cool impact in multiples. I love that blue. Can't wait to see what else you have. You could very well be my new best friend. Thanks! ~Mindy

  2. have you ever entertained the considerable merits of the philosophy: 'one item in, one
    item (goes) out'?
    but, they are all so lovely and
    they call my name

  3. That actually looks interesting! But the cranes look more like egrets to me. Tell me more about those.

  4. Well, David, they're white. They live in a creek. They don't scare much. A good bow hunter, in case you know any, could take a couple down easily. Not good eating, I hear, though. You can see what they are for yourself if you bring Mindy down here!

  5. Yeah, David! Take Mindy down there and check out the white birds in the creek for yourself. Maybe for the Spring Show. he he he (~Mindy)

  6. Cher, this photo of Andy is wonderful! I love it and him too! He looks so happy! I think he must be in his element out there in the pasture. Could I please copy the photo, or can you e-mail it to me? You're done a great job selling Warrenton - keep up the good work. Thanks, Susan

  7. Cher, you really did a great job capturing pics. Thanks for stopping by and visiting and for the photo taking tips!!


Your opinion doesn't count, but I'd like to know what it is anyway! Please leave a comment!
