A Break in the Land of the Alamo

Pin It
Mr and I have been visiting some of our children that live in the state of Texas. So far we have spent more time with our girls. Saturday evening we will get together with my son and the girls and all the families for dinner. Can't wait to see the other grandchildren.

Wow. It has been far too long to see the grandchildren and catch up with their growth.

I spent a day with a dear friend that used to live near us. We hit some fantastic fabric and quilt stores and drooled over many bolts of fabric and surreptitiously took pictures of quilts that we admired for future reference. I bought a pattern book because I didn't want to fill up my suitcase with fabric when I needed it for "finds".

My Grandson, "The Silver Craftsman", participated in a show called "Funky Finds" in the Fort Worth Convention Center (yeah, a big 2 day event). We just heard that he won the "Best Booth" Award! I know a lot of hard work went into his displays, his products and just loosing sleep wondering if you had it all together. You can read more about the show and see photos here.

Here is his Facebook page

I wish I could figure out how to post a picture of him at the show with his parents... It is in the second set of pictures on the Funky Finds facebook page (starts with a lovely large dog)  ninth row, on the right side... isn't this crazy! ? I should just learn how to do this... duh, if you go to Sheldon's page, it is right there!

I am currently learning about Instagram, I have a total of 2 pictures! wow! don't want to overwhelm you all. I am always trying to figure out ways to keep in touch with my kids.

We have a few more days of lazing around here before we head back home and get back to work. I think we want to hit a few collectible/antique stores today. I always get a few ideas on display and sometimes I get some really good deals.


  1. How fun! I wish we were in TX to see you all too! Glad you got to see mom and dad before they headed my way tho. Enjoy all those grandkids!

  2. Sounds like a wonderful visit. I haven't tried instagram yet. So much to learn :)
