Texas Treasures.....

Words cannot express how I feel about these guys.  Michael and Ed of Leftovers.  I can sum it all up in two words, The Masters.  (Lulu you knew this was coming.)  The first time I ever met Michael was at the Heart of Country Show in Nashville.  This was when I fell head over heels in love with butter pats.  The guy had taken little bitty plate hangers and hung about 20 of them on the wall.  I almost died.  The entire booth was incredible. And I am thinking, where was this guy 20 years ago?  Oh I know, in diapers.......

Seriously, I proposed marriage to him right then and there.  I thought anyone this talented I got to have.  He laughed. 

So when I stepped into that store a few weeks ago I was speechless.  If you are a lover of old things, at least once before you die you have to see this store.  I think we were there three hours. Taking into consideration all this wonderful stuff and that killer collection of purple bottles, all I could think was how am I going to get this guy back to my house...........to decorate it.  And after serious consideration, I decided to propose to him again.  Lulu said I shouldn't, but it was mostly because she didn't think he would fit in the truck with all the stuff we had already bought. (but, if he had accepted I would have put her happy ass on a plane back to GA, sorry sweetie.)  Laughed again. 

So I am still trying and I am just wondering if he could just look past the Starbucks lattes, and Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Mama's CornbreadGLAMOUR SHOT 004......Well maybe........Okay stop laughing everybody has a Glamour shot.  What was I thinking?  Better yet, what am I thinking now to show you this..........I must be crazy.  Anything for a laugh.  Chippys Fav #5 Leftovers, enjoy the pictures.  Lauri

This entry is a classic example of when to invoke "lulu's disclaimer".
