Deer Me!

Last night I'm driving across the little bridge to enter my subdivision
and little Miss Deer is taking her sweet time strolling
across in front of me.
So I took a picture with my phone.
(note the nice temperature here in Texas!)
When she got across, I rolled down my window
and spoke to her about the safety issues she
was ignoring.... I often roll my window down
and speak to them...
they think I'm nuts!
Then when I started to upload these shots,
I noticed I've taken some before....
see below...

 Apparently this is the gang that comes home from work after 5 p.m.....
and if I've blogged about this before.....
I'm guessing I can't remember and
the deer are such a part of my daily life I
figure you want to see them, too!

Recent Read

I seldom read fiction these days.
Hard for me to find book I REALLY like...
But I did recently read this one and it was really good....
And if you read my blog, I suspect you would like it, too!

Warrenton 2013

 In keeping with the "shopping season" theme.....
Spent yesterday at Texas Antique Week ...
often referred to as Round Top! (Round Top is a small Texas town)
I usually head straight to Warrenton,
which is down the road from  Round Top....
 But yesterday two friends and I kept stopping along the road before we got to Warrenton.
Actually helped us pace ourselves and hold on to a bit of energy.  It was quite hot here in Texas yesterday.
Like that boot chair above?  The toe part slides away like an ottoman. 
Would work as a child's chair.  I can tell you about where it is, if you are interested!
Just some images inside Clutter.....
which is a favorite shop simply because of the way they display things.
I only bought a brass R stencil there
(which I think I might already have)...
 but for $3 I couldn't leave it.
Oh..... I got a blue and white plate there, as well!
I can't remember what I buy!!!

They always have great vintage pages/images for sell, too!
Lots of dishes!
I like this area where they have just all kinds of little goodies
 bagged up and fastened with clothes pins.

And then... close to Excess (in Warrenton)..... I found these....
great, great booth...... the owner is from Atlanta....
I always forget to take more pictures.......... but.... if you love cement planters and quirky stuff....
Some of the heads had open eyes and some didn't.
I bought one for me with filled in eyes (so things don't grow out of it)!
For some reason I loved these metal warriors........
There were about 5 of them standing there.
I asked the maker "who buys these?" 
He said, "Rich people."
They are also in restaurants.
He made some special ones for ZZ Top.

We left just before 8, which is when Junk Gypsy Prom starts...
I think it gets bigger every year!
If you haven't experienced it...
put it on your list and consider
dressing up....

Yesterday I asked my friends...
"Who puts up all these tents?"
If you have attended or want to attend..

Tomorrow is the last day for this year!
