Slime, Sparkles and Squirrels...

What a crazy and FUN llllllloooooooooonnnnnnnnggggggg week-end I had!!!  First off - special thanks goes out to the great chef, the cook of all cooks... the guru of "slimy green stuff" - my Mother! She rebelled against her sense of "what's tasty and what's not" and made me some MARSHMELLAR salad!!!

I got a BIG bowl of slime!!! I'm so excited - I even got to bring the leftovers home (and nope, not in a cool whip container...)!!! Can you imagine?  Leftovers of marshmellar goodness? I have green stuff in my refrigerator...want some?  LOL

Then!  On Friday I wandered East.  Not really following a star or anything...just the sparklin' trail of glitter....  lots of pretty pretty sparklies...

I arrived at Winnie and Tulula's...and when I say I arrived I mean... I ARRIVED!!!  I was gonna go stompin' in wearin' my cowgirly boots and shout out thru my duct tape roll that indeed, the party could start since I wuz thaaar...but OH MY!  Was it goin' full force without me!!!  Talk about GORGEOUSNESS!!!  I couldn't even speak in the beginning 'cause my eyes were filled with sparklin' splendor!!! You know the whole "red.neck in a duct tape store" look?  I had it goin' on - I was skeert to blink in case I missed something!!!
Luckily for me I was greeted at the door by Daphne who steered me through the crowds to meet the great Mindy and David (not kidding - Mindy's a maniac! - it's like...there's another me out there! I love it!!!), then to meet the Trash Talkin' Diva herself -

Debbie (I want to be like her when I grow up!) and THE oh-so-famous Cat Daddy!!!  AND!  I got to meet Bella's Mama, Jenn (I'll babysit!!!)!

While talking to Debbie she introduced me to the absolutely incredible (and hilariously funny) Six Sisters!  All in the first 10 minutes!  Not kidding!!!  It was my idea of pure bliss - being surrounded by ABSOLUTE talent and fun - the glitter was the sparklin' icing on the cake!!!

And what glitter it was!!!  Everywhere I looked!!!  From Deb's space of Angels and silver mantles to Mindy's space of creamy Christmas trees and decanters (I'm trying to figure out how to get a ladder with a chandelier front and center in my living room at this very moment) -

all the way back to Margo's corner of "play with me and make something wonderful!"! Did I say - I GOT TO MEET THE ROBOLADY!!!

Oh... the luscious sparkles (and cool mannequins!) in between!!!  I had countless (and I mean countless) numbers of Debs' "squirrel" moments - I found someone to chat with and there I went, something to drool over and there I went...

and some havoc to wreak and there I...oh wait.  I always wreak some sort of havoc. Any.way.

Let's talk mason jars for a second here... *hiccup*... and the stuff that Mindy hides somewhere amongst her sparklies...

I'm going for more of that THIS week-end - and I'm bringing a really big mason jar with a duct tape label that says "mine.".  yyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeee-haw! Perhaps she'll even let me wear her hat while I make off with her egg nog?

Wanna know what I got?  The gold bedspread I eye-balled at the junk exchange sale, then she grabbed it up!  Thank You Mindy!!! Seriously - I'm lovin' it that there's another "me"!  I AM going to have to take her one of my extra fire extinguishers...

I spent many a minutes loitering in the eye-candy-licious Willow's Nest area - everything was just so gorgeous! I walked away from that glittery eye candy with the most amazing pattern flower - with tons of glitter and a vintage button!!!

I thought for sure at one point I was going to double over from the constant giggling... between Mrs. Angelique and Mrs. Misty (The Six Sisters!) my sides were startin' to twitch!  They are HILARIOUS!  Add in Ms. Morgan (Misty's daughter) and the fun really kicked up a notch! One was holding faucets and springs in her hands while the other had visions of furry creations dancing in her head - both of them MEGA talented - and Morgan wandering around talking about the "old stuff".  (oh...I hope I didn't fall in that category... hmmmmm)

Then - I had to tear it up with Mrs. Trash... she definitely has true "white trash" style and grace (seriously - that's totally a compliment in this here neck-o'-the-woods)!!!  It was reflected in her glittery haven as well as in her words! AND!  She makes me feel so much better about leaving my sweaters hangin' 'round in my dining room...

don't you just love that?!!? The flower bouquets were made by Jenn - I need those too when I do my laundry. (mischievous grin goes here.) And oh my sparklin' stars - Cat Daddy has some stories to tell!  I could have parked myself somewhere and listened to all of his fun for days!

There were so many different talented talented vendors - each and EVERY one of them with BEAUTIFUL goodies I needed to bring home with me!!! I left a trail of duct tape so I can find my way back - SOON! Really, there's a good chance I could rattle on for hours, so how 'bout I send you over to David and let his gorgeous photos speak for themselves?! Some FANTASTICAL and GLITTERICIOUS fun was had by all I do believe, and I'm SO glad I didn't miss a single SECOND - or a single drop of glitter - or a single meeting of the coolest of cool bloggin' pals!!!

Dear Santa baby - you can drop EVERYTHING that was in Winnie and Tulula's down my chimney... I promise, I been a good red.neck for the past 5 minutes year.
;-D (that's my purely angelic grin...)

After all of THAT fun I got to hang with my most favorite 3 nieces (one of them is SUCH my mini-me!!! poor girl!), and their parents and their Uncle (who YAY just moved here from Florida!!!)  Watch out world - I've got back-up in the form of my lil' brother now..whooooooooowheeeeee  And Anne?  He's in your neighborhood.... bwoo hahaha!

Now, I'm off to glitter the single-wide, the cat and the resident teen if he stands in my way...

Have yerself a Happy Monday!!!
Comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide... hee-hee

  4. I'm hearing silver bells and jingle bells and visions of incredible stuff and sugarplums are a dancing in my head!! WOW!!! I want to meet every one of you Texans! So come May or June, if we jumped on the Harley.....could be a nice ride!! Wonder how much stuff we could get in the saddle bags, a small bike trailer and my backpack????????Hmmmmmmmm..........Gold stars and bows all around - what a creative crew!!

  5. So did y'all bust out the good dishes (cottage cheese container) to bring the green slime home in? Just how does that taste with ketchup?
    No, no, no girlie...I wanna be you when I grow up. Oh wait...I'm like Peter Pan...I won't grow up...I won't grow up, etc.! I swear when I read your posts, I'm out of breath by the time I get to the end. It was great getting to "see" it through your eyes. There are some really cool people that I get to play with at W&T's and I am so glad you came out to play with us!
    Now, where did I leave my mason jar?
    (Psst! Don't tell anyone buy you and Margo are both ooops! She's kicking it back in my striped slipper chair!

  6. It was sooooo awesome to meet you!!!!

    I can't wait to come out to yer neck of the woods with my coolwhip container in tow...LOLOLOL!!!!

  7. You are just tooooooooo funny!!! I am wiping tears from my eyes as I type. (So if there are any misspelled words - it is because I can't see I am laughing so hard.) It was truly an honor to meet you- you will have to be an honorary triplet. By the way the "slime" looks awesome. And so what if it came home in a coolwhip bowl?? LOL- ROTFL!!!!

  8. Girl, you are too much fun! I agree with the post above about being breathless after reading your post. Just found you from ~The Feathered Nest~ and it's well worth taking the scenic route to find you. I'm now a follower as a Mississippi Redneck (Queen of His Double-Wide Trailer) gal! I will definitely be back to hang out with y'all; keep up the fun stuff!

  9. I don't know what tastes better, your green slime or the yummy eye candy you've hit us with here! Girl! Purty, purty pics! But where are some of YOU? I wanna see what a doublewide diva looks like! Oops, sorry, I forgot you were just a singlewide... ;-)

    Still eyballin' those purses of yours...


  10. Holy cow! You write like you're talking and I always think you are right next to me as I'm cackling away! Bring your mason jar or I'll supply! Maybe we can go shopping local, after my open house becomes a close house...or we can go eat or something. Too much fun is what you are and we just can't let the party end! Thanks for all your sweet words and I can't wait to see you Saturday! Don't forget to empty the junkmobile before you come. I'll help ya load 'er up! ~Mindy

What a great time that must have been! I also loved seeing pictures of you on the flickr site!! You're beautiful and it's great to have a face to go along with your blog!!!
