It's Not Just About The Junk...

Someone said that Candy and I seem to do a lot of "shopping"... Well, truth be known... we do get together every month or so to go Junkin' , along with Candy's best friend Terry. But I'm not sure you could call what we do... "shopping"...
Most of the time...
It's not just about the Junk...
Most of the time it's about seeing friends and visiting favorite places.... Like Glory B's in Geronimo...

It's difficult to get past the front porch most days...

because Beverly seems to have just the right stuff...

And Beverly is the kind of special shoppe keeper that Candy, Terry and I just love...
She's a little goofy... just like us!

and sometimes... it's not just about the junk...

In fact, I'd say, most of the time it's about spending fun times with good friends looking for treasure and then relaxing together with an ice cold margarita...
Aaaahhhhh.... now that's Treasure Hunting Texas Style...
Down here in French Lique...

I agree it isn't always the shopping that matters, it's the visiting with dear friends and just relaxing and enjoying ourselves. Glad you had a good time. I am going to do a little junking and a lot of visiting tomorrow.

To me it looks like a F.U.N. time!

donna baker said...

My kind of shopping, but I usually get more done by myself. But then it's not as fun.

You girls have way too much fun, but that's what it's all about. You have to have girl time occassionally, right. I've so been wanting to come down and see Beverly. I guess I'm just going to have to plan a trip. Hope you have a great weekend, T

Deb said...

Girl, you know how to have a good time, and I wish I could shop with you! Do you know that Mr. Magpie applied for a job in Texas out of law school, but we took the one here. We have a fair amount of family and friends there, and I always loved the Texas girls on trips I used to go on for a women's group I belonged to back when I was a young thing. Yep, y'all know how to have FUN!

Love you...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Denise said...

I want to go shopping with you! Please, pretty please? :) I'll look you up if I'm ever in Texas and you can show me around a bit. :) Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love making new friends.

Hey Dixie!

I love that vanity in one of your pictures! I have been looking for one for my daughter for a good year and can't find one that has a lot of drawer space like that one has.

Hugs,
Angela
