The Lion's BIG Adventures

OK, here is the post where I tell all about my week! The week started out normal, so to speak. At work where I got my promotion, we had the owner come in and stir up things there. Needless to say it was a long working week. I did manage to get two more trainees, trained and out on their routes. I also found a valued former member of the team and talked her back into working with us again! I missed Bridgett as much as I missed Sonya! It is good to have them back on board! I am hoping that things start running more smoothly!

Friday night was a big night for my Stephanie. Stephanie is a Senior in high school this year. I don't know if I had posted this but she made captain of the color guard. This past Friday was senior night for the band. I wound up having to come home from work and getting some sleep so that I could have enough rest so that I could go to the game and escort her on the Senior Walk across the field. I almost started crying. Another of my children almost out of the house! Why can they not just stop growing?!?

Saturday, now that was the fun day! I also forgot to bring my camera along or I would have had pictures! AAAHHH, well! Saturday I got to go to Warrington, with my CQ group. For those of you who don't know Warrington/Round Top, Texas once a year holds the biggest Antique fair that the world has ever seen! We spent about 8 hours there and did not get through even 1/3 of the vendors. That was just in Warrington! There is also Round Top!

You do have to be real careful when you go to the fair there though, there were ALLOT of reproductions! One of the items on my list that I was looking for was Silkies. There were not many there. The ones that were priced reasonable were not what I was looking for, the others that I found were WWAAAYYY over priced! Still other vendors had not a clue what I was talking about! Hard to believe they were antique dealers! (Right Renee??) By the way, Renee and I were a "stroll team" at Warrington. Renee, found a GREAT solid oak cabinet for stash storage! It is real nice! If y'all talk to her real sweet she might tell y'all all about her find! It came out of a 1920's hardware store.

The lace and buttons and other things were everywhere! You also had to be real careful there also. Some of those dealers were real proud of their items even though the quality was not there! The you ran into others that had more reasonable prices on their items.

Here are the pictures of the things that I did pick up:

Not too bad for an afternoon of baking out in the Texas sun! I am looking forward to this week as I am to be home early. The big boss at work has said "NO OVERTIME" WHOO-HOO! Vacation! I still have more posts but I am looking forward to getting them up this week that way all of y'all can see what I have been up to!
