This fabulous tree was in Vaudeville in Fredericksburg, Texas. Made completely from twigs and branches, it must have been at least 20 feet tall. Truly spectacular!!!

It,s always fascinating to work with the brilliance that is Robin Brown of Magnolia Pearl. Last Friday was no exception. We had been planning a Christmas photo shoot for her website for a couple of weeks. We we going for a sort of Nordic Christmas look with a Magnolia Pearl sort of twist. I think it all worked beautifully. You really must go see all of it at www.

Wonderful Saturday

This is the first time I have posted from my phone. And i'm not sure how to get the pictures where I want them to be.

What a wonderful saturday I had!!! After hitting a few sales and scoring some fabulous funk for the shop I headed over to Robin's for the second day of her Magnolia Pearl antique sale. I was so thrilled to receive a pair of bloomers that Robin had made from some vintage barkcloth that she bought from me the first time we met. Such a sentimental and sweet gesture. To the delight of all who were there a magical sort of wise man , I might even go so far as call him a wizard ,appeared. He enlightened us with his philosophy and thoughts. He told us that life is a gift from God that too many of us take for granted and that beauty and justice are eternal. I hope to get to visit with him again.

Then after that I went to Fredericksburg Trade Days. Theresa Canoe and her husband Cruz had great stuff. And of course Sister 's treasures always has a nice selection.

I was gifted a Folk magazine by my dear friend Anne Lorys which features her charming farm house.

Then I came home and took a nap and spent a nice evening with Dream man.

Which was fabulous and beautiful, and which I was so busy I didn't get many pictures of, at the Incredible Carol Hicks Bolton's Labratoire de Design.

We took a little trip to Cloudcroft New Mexico to play in the snow:
