One more Fabulous Marburger Find

This was a real find at Marburger, unbelievably talented lady, the name of her business is Skip 2 my lou, I went back twice to get pictures, each time the booth was swamped. These necklaces, pins and bracelets were amazing. I loved this one with all the watch faces. It was called "Face it." She attaches all of them to old photos and then writes a little story on the back about the piece, or the item she used. Too cute. Her displays were great, old racks, luggage and metal boxes. I'm sorry I don't have more info, I only got to ask her to make photos and then she was busy again..........but they were wonderful.


And check this out, no where else but Texas can you get a hunk a cheese shaped like Texas!!!!!!!! I love it.......This was at some party we went to, but I forget where it was or when it was, it was after 5:00 so don't ask.......Its all a blur now anyway. Cheers, Lauri

Hi sweetie!

I talked with her for a long time also! She is coming by the Yaya to bring me her "treasures" to see what I can buy for the store!!!

I didn't take pics, cause like you said they were ALWAYS busy! Don't ya just love the way she displays the jewels and then writes all the history on the back! Very creative...

Her work is just unbelievable. I saw her at a show I was at in East Texas. The pieces are like works of art and the presentation is just over the top! Hey, where was I when you cut the cheese? Debbie

P.S. Do you know how thrilled I was when I saw my garden bench as your header photo? You made my tent look way better than it actually did! Thanks, Trash
