Beautiful Blends

I've had the pleasure of getting to know
so many wonderful dealers at
Fredericksburg Trade Days
over the past few years.

I consider most of these fines folks to be
good friends now,
and two of the finest are
Diane Schwartz and Roger Gallamore
BLENDS in Georgetown, Texas.

I paid a visit to their dreamy shop recently,
and although I knew it would be stunning,
 it truly blew me away.

The lovely Diane, ever the gracious hostess!

 And Roger...what a character!
He knew full well I was snapping his photo,
and carried right on with lunch. Attaboy!

In addition to visiting my good friends Diane and Roger,
I was so happy to get to meet one of their customers Dana,
who is also a follower of my blog.
She brought along her sweet grandbaby, Ryan!

 Ryan posed handsomely for me
after we became buds.
Those eyes!

The great thing about Blends is that not only
do Diane and Roger have a marvelous collection
of vintage wares, but they also carry an absolutely
fabulous array of romantic clothing.

One of their most popular items are 
what Diane refers to as "dance pants"...

 Here I am in the photos above and below
sporting my dance pants / bloomers in white
from Blends.

They come in many different colors,
and are truly flattering on every body type.
And so affordable, too!

But back to the shop itself...

You can visit Blends in their brick and mortar store
4230 Williams Drive, Georgetown, TX
Open Wednesday-Saturday 10-5 

or at
third weekend of every month
next up... August 17th-19th.

 I'll be there next go-round...
see you there?

My FOLK Magazine Features

A lot of you already know,
but for those who do not, I was 
a contributor on the current issue of

Not only was I the author and photographer
of a piece titled "Old House Love",
but I was also the subject of a feature story
by celebrated stylist, writer, photographer, designer and artist
 I encourage you to visit Debi's new blog,

She has been featured in Where Women Create, Somerset Life,
Porch, Retreat, and a whole host of other publications.

Debi's story on me is called
"A Life in Focus"...

Yes, I see the irony that much of the above photo
is OUT of focus. I blurred it intentionally.
Can't have y'all reading the whole article
and not rushing out and buying a copy, can we?

 Debi was thoughtful enough to want to include
a good deal of content on my precious mama,
who passed away this past September. 
Thank you Deb, that meant a lot.

But I was also able to contribute
a little story of my own in this same issue....

 It's titled "Old House Love", and is the first in what
I envision to be a series on what it's like for life-long
city dwellers to embrace the joys and simplicities
of life in a century old Victorian farmhouse.

Right now, it's available at
right here in Fredericksburg, Texas...

 And you can also grab a copy
via the FOLK website

Thank you for all your kind words of support
and encouragement in this new endeavour,
I'm having a blast!
