The Treasures of Texas

well......... Finally, I'm given the opportunity to write to my fans again!!! My mom and dad have been so busy that they couldn't take the time to download all the fabulous pictures of me taken during the last several months!!!! Talk about a waste of talent!

Anyway, I knew everyone would be waiting with baited breath to see what's new with me, so here we go..... I have been keeping very busy with all my shop responsibilities, looking adorable, hunting for mice, posing for photos, you know all the regular "star" stuff. We have been traveling a lot but pictures were not taken until FINALLY, this trip to Texas! My mom, dad, and several of the girls from the shop all went to Warrenton for the big show. They all found so much cool stuff that every inch of our trailer was stuffed! They all had so much fun, but were all worn out, which I cannot relate to because I, of course, was pulled around in a wagon! Like I'm going to get my precious paws dirty walking through all the fields! There were so many awesome places, one of my favorites was Garden Antiques, we got to meet Theresa, the owner who was so nice and of course she LOVED me and wanted a picture of me and my mom. Her spot was so filled with fantastic ideas and finds that I could have stayed all day! We also ran into Sue from Junk Market. My mom knows her from when we lived in Minnesota. She just wrote a new book, to bad she didn't get a picture of me in it?!
So, I guess I should tell you who all came with to help take care of my needs. Gale Payne, Colleen Hancock, Sandra Finn, my sister Joanna, {who lives in San Antonio}, and my mom and dad. They all helped pull me around and carry me, except for Joanna, (it's a sister thing). She just won't admit that I'm more popular than she is! She is a lawyer so she thinks she's all so smart, but everyone knows, I'm the STAR!!
Well, I didn't mean to get all side tracked. Our next event is April 24, 25, 26 and it's our Queen for a day event!!!! It is going to be so fantastic! Texas was a great source for many, many fantastic antiques! We can't wait to share them all with you, and of course, I know you can't wait to see ME!!!!

Matilda and girls, it was so nice to meet you all! I wish I could have visited with you longer. I still have many more posts to do and yes you'll be included in one. Besides how could I not include you being as adorable as you are!

Good morning Matilda, have been a fan of yours for while now, but I didn't know you had a blog until I seen it on Theresas blog! Wish I had met you in Texas!

Oh Matilda~ you are to precious. When I was a little girl I had a dog like you named Bonnie Sue. I dare say you are even cuter than she was.
I'm going to have to post a link so I'll be able to follow your adventures.
Y'all come visit the cafe too!
