Partying with Binky la Faye

I am so glad that I was invited to Binky la Faye's 11th hour Celebration of All Things Fall through facebook. We were already planning to be in Fredericksburg and Llano wasn't much farther down the road. The party was held inside of her antiques store.
Isn't this one of the coolest witch hats that you have ever seen?

 This is who greeted us at the door. Very cool costume.
 Part of the celebration was a Halloween fashion show and this costume was my absolute favorite.
 We even partied with a voodoo witch. (Cindy is probably the nicest voodoo witch you could meet)
 Binky posed with me for this one. She put on one heck of a party. People at her party were trying to get Howard and I to move to Llano. It's a sweet town. You can live in Llano without paying the high taxes of Fredericksburg. Sounds good to me.
 We met lots of cool people. I can see the benefits of living in Llano.
I even won a door prize. Like my new hat?

Warrenton draws me like a magnet

On Friday, my sister and I got up early and drove over to Warrenton. We saw houses for yard birds . . .
 . . . and houses for song birds.
This bench had so much cool all over it. It would be perfect on someone's front porch. It wouldn't be for mine because we barely have a porch on our house.
I even saw my sister kiss a pig. It belonged to Oleta of My Pig Flew. I scritched its snout. I certainly had no interest in kissing it even though it was a friendly pig. I guess most pigs are and I hear they make good pets. I just would have to be paid or lose a bet to kiss one.
I even spotted a metal weinie dog.
I bet Mike Wolfe would be all over this one!
Some people are just plain genious. How fun would this be as an entrance to your side yard?? I saw many, many more really fabulous items, but as usual, my camera stayed in my backpack most of the time.
Now Saturday was another story. My sister had to work so she couldn't join me for a second day of shopping fun. The radar made it look like the rain had moved east, so I decided to drive back over there only to have the sky opened up and dump some much-needed rain to the area about an hour after I arrived. It made shopping incredibly challenging. I wouldn't recommend it. You have to be made of tougher stuff than what I am made of.

The ladies that I usually see at Warrenton have moved over to Marburger Farms which opens tomorrow. I sure wish I could be there!!
