Ride 'Em Cowgirls! Country Living Fair, Austin...

And a rip-roarin',
bigger than Texas, 
good time was had by all!

Austin, Texas played host to the 2012
Spring Country Living Fair,
and you'd better believe that this gal was there,
getting in everybody's way 
with her big ole' Texas sized camera,
snapping away!

 This no-nonsense fella and his buddy
were there to offer one and all a bovine Texas Longhorn
welcome as we made the walk
from one expo barn to another.

 Loved this piece!
I think I'm gonna make one of these myself!

 This lovely gal with the Texas cowgirl purse
is none other than junking buddy number one,
Shannon of Rusty and Redone.

And below, I found the immortal words of
quintessential Texan Lyle Lovett
on the side of this vintage camper...

 Darn right, Lyle!
It's never too late to become a Texan, we're a friendly bunch
and we welcome fer-e-ners ( aka Yankee's )
with open arms!

Just look at the friendly Texans me and Shannon
bumped into later that day at the Junk Salvation Show...

And to quote my buddy Sue of Vintage Rescue Squad,
wanna see my ab-fab purchase of the day?

This lawn chair with more colors
than a box of Skittles now resides out back
in front of one of our barns. Perfecto!

I have many, many more Country Living Fair
images to share in the days ahead,
as well as an exciting announcement!

Sending each of you
smiles and hugs as big as...
you guessed it,

Hmmm, I may have to get in better with those IL gals headed south next year.

Looking at the beloved chair I must have a goldmine in my barn. If the rain ever stops I have to do some digging.

I visited Dallas in Fall of 2010 and Love, Love, Loved it!!! My favorite place (besides Southfork Ranch that is) was Plano and all the wonderful antique shops. I brought home a few great pieces from there!

Looks like y'all had a great time at the Fair!

Angie @ Knick of Time said...

Looks like a ton of fun and I'm glad you got to spend the day with Shannon!


Debra@CommonGround said...

LOVE that chair. I've got a couple of super rusty ones myself, you'll get to see'em soon!

Dana said...

I thought I saw you there! I wasn't sure and didn't wanna make a fool of myself to say "Hi Anne" and it wasn't you. Dang!
Love the pics and your Skittles chair!

trash talk said...

Texas is a big ol' state, but you just never know who you might run into right around the next cow patty!
Fun seeing y'all.

Daydream Living said...

Hi Anne!
Well, we had the pleasure of living in Texas for 2 years and we loved it! Texans or Amsterdammers (people from Amsterdam, Holland) are a bit the same, big mouth, small heart so to speak. My daughter her first English classes were in Texas and to this day her English is with an T-accent!
Glad you had a good time, and btw, I love the photo on the header and you on your chair, cute!
All the best,
Maureen x
