Mini Marburger

I won't be making it to Round Top for the Fall Antique Show this time around since we are waiting on Baby Brother to make his debut any day now.  Mom and Sis-in-Law plan to make a trip down next week and visit all of you.  So sad that I won't be there, but probably best....the fields aren't the ideal birthing location!

To make up for it, we will take part in our own "Mini Marburger" this weekend in McKinney.  Octoberfest 2010 starts this afternoon and runs through tomorrow night.... food, fun, and festivities... all celebrating our German heritage.  Mr.58 took a peak on the Square this morning and noticed vendors beginning to set up tents and tables.  We're planning on heading up this afternoon to eat some sausage and listen to some good music.  The kids are hoping for a train ride! 

Antique Company Mall is hosting the Munich Antique Faire out on East Virginia Street. Some of our fellow dealers will set up outside while many others are holding great sales inside.  We are having our very own Booth 58 "Happpy Fall Yall Sale."  We made a bunch of mark downs in the booth yesterday.... Hope some of yall can head over and take a look.

Pumpkin Sightings

Haven't seen any real pumpkins in the store yet... but I have had a  few other  recent "sightings" that make me soooo happy!

I know,I know... quick bread from a box mix is cheating to many of you.... but I really appreciate the quick part of this yummy bread!
Thank you Starbucks and Pillsbury for the "happy return" of these treats each year this time.
One steamy August afternoon Mom and I "baked" up these "pumpkin spice muffins" and put them in this rusty vintage muffin tin.... That is our kind of "baking!"

It's Legal!

We decided that it is "legal" to say it's fall now.  September 1st means fall!  Yesterday, we took out the shells and added the pumpkins ... and it felt so wonderful.  Fall is our favorite.
I read a blog post this morning that asked the question, "Are you sad to see summer go?"  HA!!!  Those of us here in the Texas are all answering that quickly... "No way!  Bring on the fall!!!!"
Mom and I heard several comments from customers and other dealers as they watched us sprinkling our fall wares around Booth 58...All of them sounded inspired and excited ...We told them, "It's legal! It's September 1st!!!!" A few even  tried to buy our display only punkins' they were so inspired! 

Speaking of "punkins" -Our fall brings us the joy of adding our new Little Punkin' to the family.... so fluffing the booth will have to take a backseat to a few more naps for this mama.  Why not get a jumpstart on this festive season... Bring on the Fall!
