Fun times in Hico, Texas

Another great trip to Hico, Texas for the  bi-annual Antique Show.  This is my favorite antique show (just a tad higher than the Paris Street show in Denver)
I really enjoyed my time with my friends Pattie and Stephanie who made the driving trip so much fun.  I laughed until my face hurt.   I am proud of my Witherspoon Antique Mall  "sisters" who had such beautiful booths.  They had the greatest booths of all.   I meet new friends, Denis and Taylor from Lonestar Antique Mall in Fort Worth,  Brenda from the Homestead Store, Dorothy from the Shabby y and many more. And ran into my good buddies Jennifer and her beautiful daughter Shelbie.   And as an added bonus.....I met the singer Jewel!
she sat with us while we had tea and cookies. She is so stunningly beautiful and so very sweet and down to earth.  (See Denis from Lonestar Antique Mall blog..
rubygraces.blogspot.com.  She bought a vintage prom dress from him)


My friend Pam's booth, love all the cream and white
colors with the gorgeous Christmas wreath.  She is a talented
artist with an great eye for collections.
My friend Georgia's booth, great collection of everything
vintage. She can make beautiful things with anything.
I bought the large table...perfect for my new
studio!
I purchased this great typewritter..it is in perfect shape!
The Shabby Y booth, lots of fun trinkets and
whatnots..


 I am sorry that I did not get a photo of my friends Thoma Lou and Janet's booths.  They were equally as beautiful.  Both gals are very talented and have an eye for all things beautiful and antique.  


I brought home lots of things treasures.  I will be busy creating something out of them.
But the best treasure of the day was spending the wonderful, sunny fall day with my friends....
