Why is it....

I would swear...  I mean SWEAR that I had made two separate post last year...  One on my trip back to Texas and Fling  Jewelers (hand made jewelry, and Sam repairs old watches, as well as some Estate Jewelry and new stuff)??  and my trip to the Tacoma Beadfest, not to mention we did a quick stint up to Salt Lake City too???   Well I am not sure where they ended up at, but here we go..  I will do two quick and short blogs on them before I forget AGAIN!..

Texas..  My In Laws are all in Texas.   Houston area, Cleveland to be exact..  Well except a sister in Tennessee and  one down on San Jincato river (which you will get to see some of...).   It's always so weird because I hate the heat and I want to spend all my time hiding in the A/C world.   This time it was WONDERFUL!!  His sister Dahna has gotten 2 pools.   The joy the wonder~~   I swear I could have lived in them.   Wonderful tubs of water!! It made it so much easier for me to spend a month there.

See isn't that a beautiful view from the pool??

   I always enjoy my stay down there..

  The thrift shop down there had some cool re-purposed furniture..  Beautiful repainted Chair with a new seat.

 This end table became a game table...   


and these chairs?? Didn't match the table at all until it's been highlighted and the chairs refurbished. Now it's ready for any jungle room.

Dock out over the water..  Looks like a slasher film waiting..

Flowers by the road side what beautiful colors.

Beautiful House in Galveston
One of my favorite things about Texas is going to Bryan/College Station and seeing the new stuff that Jean and Sam Fling of Fling Jewelers

  They have unusual finds

     They have new rings and watches...       As well as some Estate..
This has an amazing inner cut that a picture couldn't get 

 These were a couple of my favorites this time... 

 Charlie does some of the coolest jewelry designing that I need to try again at getting good pictures of.   Some of them disappeared and others were blurry...

    Going to leave you with this parting shot.....

Follow The Yellow Brick Road...

Usually I know exactly where I am going, what I am doing and what the heck I am looking for when I get on Etsy.   Stop laughing..  Really I do.  (Get off the floor you look silly down there)
 It's really pretty simple...  I want something with Pumpkins so I go look for  pumpkins As Far as I can See which leads me to where I was heading in around about way.    I mean I can't just go directly there after all I might just miss something so exciting I'll just waste away from the unknowing ness of it all..
So any how I was trying to find Marcy the other day and not being able to remember the name of her shop..  I really took at LONG LONG path to get there..

I put into the search Yellow Brick Road   it was amazing to me what all popped up!!

Really really stunning.   Made me think..    Hmmmm..  What could I do with the Theme???

I keep looking at some of the wonderful stuff people have done under the theme of  "The Yellow Brick Road"   I mean seriously who would have thought?   I sure didn't.. 

Then...  I thought huh.. if  "Yellow Brick Road" has a cool search what on earth would "Timewarp" come up with...  I found this....

any how....   Enough of all that nonsense, I was trying to get a look at Marcy's newest stuff.
Come to find out she isn't on Etsy any more and is found at
