It wouldn't be complete without a hot pink chandelier and a leopard print set of deer antlers.

I am so excited to finally post these pictures of "my little slice of heaven on earth". After months and months of re- inventing, painting, restoring and cursing..... my daddy made all my dreams come true. Don't all southern girls dream of living in a trailer, especially a pink one? I absolutely wouldn't mind leaving the modern world and traveling the Texas backroads with a scarf tied in my bouffant hair and Tanya Tucker on the radio.

Christmas shopping finished yet? This vintage piece is made from an old rhinestone brooch, vintage pearls, and a retro clock face. Is it midnight Cinderella?

A big THANKS to Janet Green from Two Rivers Antiques in Paris, TX for putting together the first annual Antique Fair. There were so many great vendors set up and it was a huge success! My "sin on wheels" vintage trailer made her first public outing and she was a hit!! My soul sisters and I had to take a few tin types in the trailer before we went bootscootin' at the Two Rivers' Two Steppin' Prom. *Note how we are holding up our role models, I'd sell my soul to the devil himself to meet Dolly or Loretta!!
Here's a great photo of my vintage booth at the Paris Antique Fair.
And another fabulous picture of me with my Texas Trash gal pals!! Tara Swain had a great photo booth set up at prom and we couldn't resist having our picture taken.

It's time that my vintage soul joined this century so I've decided to hop on the saddle and create a blog. I hope this new ride will be worth my trouble of setting this blog up. So now that it seems to be kickin' along, I have decided to make my first post and introduce myself. My name is Ashley Burns Crim and I am the designer and creator of Texas Trash jewelry. I like all things vintage and retro and I'm pretty sure I was meant to live in a different time period. I'd prefer the wild west days where Texas was still untamed and cowboys were Texas Rangers. I'd like to believe I was part owner of a saloon myself or at least danced in one. Anyways, back to reality.... my jewelry is custom made from vintage jewels, trinkets and baubles. I hope you enjoy this blog as it will be my diary on this journey.
