Artesian or Bust

Well, we made it to the Artesian and while the website left little to be desired, we're actually quite impressed. Air hockey, foosball tables, volleyball court and much, much more! We've got the best "seat" in the house, lot 10, and the bluebonnets are in full bloom. While you look at these photos, I can't help but want to say in my best twangy voice, "that there's an RV. I borrowed it off a buddy of mine. He took my house, I took the RV. It's a good looking vehicle, ain't it?" But, don't you go falling in love with it now, because, we're taking it with us when we leave here next month."




After setting up the lights and chairs [and having a cocktail to celebrate, of course], we were off to Round Top with money in our hands and eyes open wide. We headed directly to the opening night of Clutter and barely made it out. The displays were as fantastic as we imagined and the wall of found objects had me entranced. We grabbed our goods and continued winding our way through the fields. Best score for me: striped water skis. For Erika: old French notebook with hand drawn railroad objects.




Best item we left behind because I didn't have $1,000 or the room height needed for 10' doors:


Best part of the whole trip even though we're only on Day 1, happy helpers:

I happened upon your blog through Erika's blog. She had posted photos from my project with D'Ette Cole when she still owned Clutter in Warrenton. I pretty sure I saw you gals in a couple of booths ion the Warrenton fields. Ya'll looked like you were having a great time hunting junk.

Thought I'd say hello! It's a small world.

Peace,
