Friday I couldn't wait to get out of work! I was so pumped to head to Dallas The Literary Greats at Bryan Street Tavern and then CANTON!
BTW... I got this HUGE poster-sized Ryder (my nephew) for my walls. What do you think? Creepy? I can't help it, this kid brightens up my life in seconds and now I'm five hours away from him, so I couldn't have thought of a better addition to my trailer walls.
On to the show...
Yeah, they're awesome.
If you don't believe me, check them out here.
I spent the whole day in Canton, Texas. Every first Monday of the month weekend, the whole town turns into a gigantic flea market and it is HEAVENLY. I am definitely going back next month and am taking my piggy bank with me. Here are a few of my favorite finds:
I wanted this Singer case so bad. I'm such a sucker for wooden cases and luggage.
These made me miss my brother sooooo much. Love ya Bub.
I thought this was super cool. Has anyone ever made one of these before?
The stone feather owned my heart immediately. I told myself, "Oh, I'll get it on the way out" then I forgot where it was. Plus, I didn't have cash and this trip was more of a scoping things out trip v. splurge.
I collect tins (I had to leave them all in Houston :( ) and this table was all just tins. Amazing.
I have a terrible fear of dolls that no one can quite understand, but seriously, look at this picture...CREEPY.
Alan on the other hand couldn't get enough of the dolls. He wanted to buy a few dolls, but I told him there was no way he was getting in the car with one of those.
(for all you Thermos lovers out there)
Justin bought a road sign early on and ended up carrying it around all day :(
I honestly didn't want to go at first because I was so tired, but I was so happy that we did because I loved the music and the musicians were so wonderful. Check out the ceiling of the All Good Cafe. It is completely covered with paper cranes and butterflies. This inspired me to change up my room...
I figured out Origami (it took a while) and started decking out my ceiling.
old maps and kraft paper
After I completed stringing my first set...sooooo happy.
I hope you had a great weekend too!
