Too Much Talk And Not Enough Action...YET!!!

Cat Daddy and I are almost ready...Finally! I am supposed to be ironing and packing, but I just had to get in one more post before we leave out tomorrow afternoon. I am really looking forward to our mini-vacation and hopefully getting to meet a lot of y'all. I hope to see a bunch of y'all at the Blogger Party at Theresa's.C.D. finished loading the other trailer last night except for a few odds and ends, like lamps, mirrors, etc. and his jeans weren't the only thing drooping when he came in. Needless to say, we are both looking a little rough!
Aren't these windows tutu much! These were a last minute find of his. I think we have some great stuff this trip, but to be honest, I really don't know what all is on the trailers. He did most of the buying this time so if you like what you see, let him know.
That white rolling cart is one of my favorite things. I call it my mirror corral. When you do an outside show, you really have to think outside the box on what to display on. He usually builds me walls, but this year we figure we'll be doing good to just get it off the trailers and lined up in rows. Think old time junkers...that will be us! Nothing decorated, just great merchandise! Now enough about us...let's just move on to a pair who know a thing or two about decorating....Willow Nest. This is just for y'all, Barn House Boys! If this doesn't make you want to come to Texas, nothing will.
L & L just had their sweet opening of their potting shed and since we were in the neighborhood dropping off a trailer, well, we just Had to stop by, you know?
Linda was busy as a bee as you can tell. Love the checkout Ludmil built her...he is one talented man.
Get any ideas here Mindy for your coat rack?
I adore this fencing he built...I mean I REALLY adore it. Their shop, B & B, and new potting shed is not that far from Round Top, so drop by for sure. They will also be displaying their wares at Marburger Farms if you are shopping there.
Here is your latest Bella fix. What can I tell you except she is still doing great and holding her own. She is starting to get eyelashes and an attitude. Jenn is recovering nicely and has been released to start driving! If you are anywhere in between Roanoke and Baylor Hospital next week, I suggest you get out of the way!
And speaking of Bellas, Sue at Bella Shabby is having her 50th post giveaway! Sue is a treasure and has been a wonderful source of strength to me the last few weeks. She sent me a care package with chocolate and something to read while I was living at the hospital with Jenn. She is a wonderful, wonderful friend and her blog is a great read. Just wait until you see her header photo, Fab U Lous! So, get on over there and congratulate her and be sure and sign up.
This will be my last post until we get back from Warrenton. I will return with a vengeance with lots of stories and even more photos, hopefully some blackmail ones!!! Continue to keep us in your prayers for Bella to continue to get stronger and stronger! Love you all and in the words of Arnold, "I'll Be Back"!!!

Thanks SOOO much for posting these pix for us of The Potting Shed! You know that fancy slideshow of theirs doesn't let you gaze for hours on each photo...not that we have been trying to figure out any of their secrets or anything like that...nope, not us. Between L&L's and those two trailers of yours, we certainly have to make our trip to TX happen VERY soon! You and CD are going to make a killing this week!! Have a wonderful time and we can't wait to hear about all the fun...
