Today I am grateful for a couple of Southern women that I really enjoy visiting.
I am a southern bell wannabe, y'all. I try to mimic my lovely friends from Louisiana and Texas. I know I can't really be Southern but maybe I will absorb some of that charm by osmosis.
I met a sweet Cajun gal at Silver Bella. Jodie LeJeune of Everything Vintage is a talented paper and jewelry artist and one of the dearest and most fun loving girls I have ever met. She is always searching for the next great photo and carries her camera everywhere. For good reason, as she is also a quite accomplished photographer. She has caused me great camera envy.I learned a lot of little artistic tricks from her at Silver Bella and as soon as I get Photoshop I will be leaning on her for tech support. She is a wealth of creative knowledge and cute as a bug on top of it all. Stop by her blog and Etsy shop and y'all say Hi!
The second lovely Southern friend I want to talk about is TNT Debbie from Talking Trash. I only "know" Debbie through her blog but we are "soul sisters" for many reasons. A real Texas chick who has all kinds of fun running around with her Cat Daddy buying up those great vintage goodies that seem to only be found in Texas. She is setting up shop in Warrenton right now for Antiques week. At this point I hope she is pouring herself an icy Dirty Martini and not having a come-apart!
She recently became a Grandma again, much earlier than expected, but things seem to be going well with her tiny new Bella Marie. So grab yourself a hang-down and a cold drink and go say Howdy. (Especially if you need to find out what a hang-down is) I am sure there will be lots of pictures of the goin's-on at Warrenton when she returns.
I think I have this Southern lingo down pretty well.
Thanks you my dear girls from the southern states, for being so much fun.
Y'all don't have a come-apart today, P.
PS The first photo is by Jodie and the second is Debbie's.
