I'm more of a distraction than anything else....

Back in early February... Candy and Terry (along with my sister from Mississippi, Lili) came to Geronimo to help me move my booth from the back to the front... here's that story... The Fairies of French Lique... and I remind you of this because...

just this past Friday... two of the fairies... Candy and Terry... were doing a little work in their own booth near Wimberley, Texas... My sister, here again from Mississippi..., and I decided to go and visit Candy and Terry and uh... help? Well, as it turns out... I'm more of a distraction than anything else... after our arrival... they worked for another half hour and then I talked them into quitting and running off to Wimberley for some serious sisterhood style shopping with Lili and me...

I forgot to take photos until we got to Brocante... I just loved these bottles... and the photo of the flapper in the cloche (background)...

Terry loved this debutante gown draped over a wicker chair... she's been wondering what to do with an old gown she has for sale... and now... she knows...

This fabulous piece of art reminded me of the beautiful creations of Miss Rock Candy herself...

but this... oh my... was the Pièce de résistance ...
I absolutely fell in love with this beautiful piece of art... from head...

to toe... Magnifique!
the price... $1800...
probably worth every penny...
but way-way over my current frivolous art budget...

after ooooohhhhing and aaaahhhhhhing... and walking around for about 2-hours... (yes of course I bought something.. but that's for later)...
we decided to stop and get a little Texas Iced Tea...

yes... it is true... I'm more of a distraction than anything else...
but Candy, Terry, Lili and I...
always seem to have a really good time... no matter where we go or what we do...
down here in French Lique...

Hi Dixie,
You girls look like you might be up to somethin in the last photo, um???
I'm so glad that you had fun. There is nothing like serious Sister Time for shopping and being together. Makes me miss my sister (sniff, sniff).
Gosh you saw some lovely stuff, WOW is all I can say.

hugs
Sissie

Candy said...

O.K. I'm ready to go again! Looks like to gals that can't hold their Texas Tea ;-) and looks like I had on the same outfit...what's the odds?
Distraction was right! now I have to schedule another day to finish the booth, but glad we had the day to recharge our fun factor.
How did it go at the cottage?
See you gals soon....

Ok, so you might be a distraction, but I'll bet shopping with you was more fun than working.
The art work is, well, different and certainly out of my prize range.

Hi there! Yes, I can see that you do lead these girls astray! LOL! But my goodness, what glorious fun and laughter that you have - wonderful.

That lady artwork on the wall is fabulous - just amazing.

Come see me - would be honored if you'd follow me too...

Everyone needs a good distraction now and then. Isn't that part of why we blog?

The figure on the wall is stunning. I bet you could make a simple version using one those decorative dress forms made of wire. I've seen many that are flat to hang on a wall. It would certainly be fun to try!

Hugs,
Dawn

Dixie said...

Dawn... you really do "know" me way too well!

Oh, that's beautiful the way they have the Santos head displayed in the case! I sell those in my store, but hadn't thought of displaying them like that. Beautiful!
