Blue Monday... More Junkin' in Geronimo!

Please visit Miss Smiling Sally's Blog for more Blue Monday... this Monday and every Monday! Thanks Sally... now hosting from Tampa, Florida...
Sally, thanks for being such a gracious hostess, and inviting us all in to view all things Blue...

I love this little blue chair I found while junkin' with Candy last week in Geronimo... It's been callin' my name... it's saying... "Dixie... Romeo would love to have this little chair sittin' on the front porch just for him..."
I'll be back in the area this week... it's possible this little blue chair is going to find a new home...

down here in French Lique...

Hi Dixie! I went back to get caught up. It looks like you and Candy had a great time! Isn't it fun thrifting with a fellow blogger? I love that chair! I have my mom's little wicker rocker that she had as a child. I painted it white and kept it in my daughter's room when she was little. Romeo will LOVE it! Have a great week!...hugs...Debbie

I'll keep my eyes peeled to see how handsome that chair gets once you've loved it some. Happy Blue Monday.

Hey Dixie Girl, I can get on your blog and stay there....how wonderful for me...been missing you.

Love the blue chair..Where is Geronimo and do they have lots of stores?

Sharon and I are always looking for new places to go.

Happy Monday Dear friend.

Dixie said...

Geronimo is between San Marcos and Seguin on Hwy 123... just a few places to junk... but great places none the less!

That's such a cute chair, and such a pretty shade of blue. Hope you decide to take it home. My father's family lived in the Seguin area for many years, but I've never been to Geronimo.

Mornin' Dixie...

Girl, I just left you a note on your Sunday Favorites post...thank you so much for joining in yesterday!

Oooh...I love this little blue wicker chair! Would you paint it or leave it as is? It really is a pretty color of blue and I love the old distressed character of these pieces! Hope that this little beauty does find its way home with you!

Girl, sure wishes I would have known about Geranamo when I was in Texas...I would have loved to check it out!!!

Have a marvelous Monday, my friend!
Chari

Candy said...

I just know I need to go back. I never saw that sweet little chair, which makes me wonder...what else I missed...panic!
Taking MIL to dr. appt tomorrow in San Marcos. Maybe I could take her by Twice Blessed.

Peacocks?...couple years ago two adopted my house. They would hang out around the front door...well I had bird %*#@ everywhere. We finally were successful in running them off. But yes, they are pretty.

Monday blessings,
Candy
