What I Am Working On Now

Well, fall is my favorite time of year. I say it every year. It's time to start cooking and decorating... and here in Texas it's really the best time to be outside.
Mom and I are going to be a part of the Heritage Society's trunk show again this year. Washington County has a wonderful old mansion that we have weddings and large events at. Every year, on the weekend before Thanksgiving, they have a holiday trunk show and home tour. It is always really fun.
Mom and I will have a booth there again this year. Tons of fun things like hanging baskets, potted containers, antiques and cute "junque." Mom will be making box lunches to sell also for the shoppers. It is going to be so good: tea sandwiches, pumpkin bread, spiced tea, fruit salad... all the good girlie stuff! I like the trunk show also b/c it motivates me to get some of the projects done I have been meaning to do all year.
This rose topiary with the black urn will be there, available for purchase.

So will these cute pedestals I made. Just some vintage plates and candles sticks make some really cute dessert displays!

And then there is my fall garden!! I am so proud of it this year. I am growing cabbage, tomatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce and tons of herbs.
I have parsley (curly and flat), rosemary, lots of lavendar...
The herbs I love to put in flower orders. I will be drying my own lavendar to use in the spring for weddings and other orders.

This is a picture of my pot shed. That is really all it does is hold pots. But, it's really cute.
Everytime I tell Dusty I need a potting shed, he tries to tell me I already have one.
I always correct him: I have a garden shanty, not a garden shed.
BIG difference.
Hope you are enjoying fall!

This and That

Okay... these pictures are not linked together in any sort of way, so bear with me. These are just little snapshots from the cell phone... my life in a large nut shell. This is my brother Rob (or Robert as me and mom will ALWAYS call him, sorry Robert.) This is one of the first weeks he was officially out of the army. That day we met him and his girlfriend Krystin for lunch, and then Robert was going to find an apartment.
He is back in school finishing his degree (now on the Army's tab) and making excellent grades.
So proud.
Owen eating something that looks gross... maybe a popsicle, but honestly I don't know.

Funeral Spray for a Veteran, actually a prisoner of war.
It's wierd because I actually start to feel like I know my customers. This is a niece that called from California. She was really nice and by the time we were off the phone, I wanted to send her a sympathy card.

The light was bad... but you know the rule... you NEVER wake a sleeping baby.

Can anyone tell me please, why J.Crew hasn't called him yet for a modeling contract?

Aggie Game Day

Hey there! I am sorry it has been so long since my last post. We have been super busy here at the Robinson house.
This past Saturday all the guys went to the Aggie Game. We played Mizzou (I think) and we lost. So, we had a few angry Americans around our house... but they all had a great time.
We are turning it into a yearly tradition that all the guys go to the Aggie game and all the girls can go shopping.
The girls had a great time. It was me, my mom, Dusty's mom, Krystin (my brother's girlfriend) and Owen. Yes, Owen had to come with us. There is no way he could sit through even half the game. The guys had pretty good seats. They were actually really close to where the team runs out of the locker room.

We just got rid of this camera... time for a new one. Look at that blurry spot on Blake's face. ARG!

Gig 'Em, Ags!
