Time again to spend a few hours with our gracious, hostess Sally, who needs our prayers right now. Be sure you “ mosey” on over to her blog, Smiling Sally and round up a few blue thingies.
Friday was our day at the Houston Stock Show and Rodeo and of course Toby Keith. It wasn’t one of my better days, the wind was blowing 90 miles an hour and unless you were inside a building, it was not pleasant.
Now there was my favorite thing and that is shopping and there was plenty of it.
I met the nicest lady from Texas who designs, makes and sell western wear.
That is Ms Rhea seated at the desk. It is really hard to take good pictures in the hall because there are so many people.
This was here #1 seller at the show.
It is hard to tell from these picture but they are beautifully made shirts.
Her friend sells the boot candy, which is like a bracelet you wear on your boots. So stylish now are the rubber boot made like cowboy boots and decorated. Yes, ladies we must look good in the pasture or the barn cleaning out poop.
I also thought you might in enjoy seeing a few hats that were for sale, Of course, you can buy any color, material or price cowboy hat you want. Roy said these are the ugliest ones he had seen, and he should know, he has about 6-8 hats and is always looking for another.
Then I spotted one that was to die for and that tight old skin-flint wouldn’t buy it for me and he says he loves me.
IT WAS ONLY $10,000 DOLLARS…YEP YOU SAW IT RIGHT $10,000.
I guess I wasn’t worth it……..hehehe
Then I ran into an old friend from my days of owning 2 boutiques, I get to visit with her every year down there. She is from Colorado.
Barbara is a lovely lady and designs all the denim, and jewelry that she sells. Her clothes, jewelry and belts are well made and worth the price.
Yep, there were other booths besides clothes and jewelry.
These Chest were hand made and absolutely magnificent.
The bronzes were breathtaking.
My pictures of the rodeo and Toby Keith were disappointing, I , for the most part had the wrong lens.
I did talk Roy into riding the Bump Cars, but he is such a sissy, HE WOULDN’T RIDE ANY OF THESE SCARY RIDES. so we gave all our tickets to a little boy, whose family appeared to be less fortunate than Roy and I.
We sit right behind the chutes….they are called chute seats…go figure. Lots of perks come with these seats and the best one is you get to go down on the dirt when the performer is out there and sit in chairs on the dirt. We were much closer that my pictures show.
Thanks for being patient and looking at all my pictures, we had a great time.
