Shop til you drop!

One day last week my friend Connie called
and said she wanted to go to
and did I want to go with her.
Well, it's in the 90's here and we are dodging tropical storms for the last two weeks...
but hey, she NEVER wants to go there...
so I said, "sure give me 10 minutes".
So thought I'd show you some things I saw!
See those books above... we can GLUE something to the spine!!!!
And below are some great boxes.
They were in the shop with the black banner...
a side street close to Thad's....
if you live in Houston you'll appreciate my directions.
Are you inspired yet? Here are the required shots from Thad's.... my favorite shop out there or anywhere near there! Can you find Connie in this picture?

I bought the Papaya Book of Days!

You would LOVE it!

The cowboy is what Connie was looking for.

She's furnishing a ranch house....

...and a parting shot of sweeeeeeet Thad's!

.... spend to the end!

What are the box tops made with - kinda looks like scupley clay. Makes me want to go to Thad's. I saw my bag in the picture!

I haven't been to Old Towne Spring in a long time. I will have to make a trip soon and check it out.

This place is astounding -- how I wish I was there! Those boxes -- I have to make a box now. They would never come close to these boxes, but what a challenge! Oh, my -- I wouldn't have been able to stop!

I am inspired! I adore old books, but mostly for their pages. Do you ever want old spines? I love those boxes...looks like polymer clay to me...what do you think?

Papaya...so cool. I have not seen the book of days. I think I will want it!

Fun shopping and great inspiration!

Hugs,
