Warrenton Experience

A familiar sign in "these parts"!
We do love our George Strait!
My shopping buddies and I crammed into a local phone booth at Clutter. I have on Margaret's brooch. You know we love a good banner! That's Henry, my son's dog. He's staying with us this week. He doesn't like me sitting at the computer. He's going to have to get used to it. What we see as we drive to Warrenton from Houston. If you like some mounted heads...
I loved the sign below....
seemed conflicted to me...
Below was one of about 5 displays like this
in Clutter..
a fave shop ...
last time I bought ALL THOSE bottles there!
I do like my booths color coordinated, don't you?
Last July I combed Canton for a simple metal frog.
None to be found.
I mean it...
Apparently word got out that that was
a hot item...
They were EVERYWHERE in Warrenton!
Carole.... looks like something we could
do with those cute bottle tops you send to us ...
or Nathalie or Patty could
make this if you ship em!
If the shoppers get rowdy...
there IS control....
--->
Below is what I bought.
Not much...but it was stuff I needed!!!
I'll do a post about my collection of
little figurines with accordions
one day!
Yes, it's a sad, sad addiction!
So did you buy any good stuff recently?
Tomorrow we shall return to embroidery!
Yep, Virginia delivered for April!

Didn't you just have the best time EVER? I love Warrenton, etc. Didn't get to go this year. Maybe in the fall... sigh....

Linda Jo, thanks for coming by to check on me. And thanks for your prayers for my sweet mother in law. I truly believe that she's doing so well due to prayers from home and so many prayers from my blog friends. I've been so blessed by all of you here! Thanks!

Looks like you had fun! My group always goes to Marburger. We had fun but didn't buy much. May go to Warrenton next fall, talk about conflicted! Will probably post my little purchases on my blog. Didn't enjoy the traffic...
Can't wait to see the next VA original!
