I had the best time this summer with Jme from CherryBones Photography taking these amazing pinup pictures. She used my little pink trailer, slip dresses, and jewelry in the pictures!! They turned out precious. Here are a few behind the scene shots....

The Great Divide

Can I just tell you that this Texas girl loves OKLAHOMA!!! This summer I went to OKC to the incredible Junk Hippy Roadshow and had a blast!! Junk Hippy is one of the best shows that I have participated in. I will be back in OKC on October 5!! So Oklahoma vs. Texas- you decide.

The first stop on our road trip included the Tornado victims in Moore, OK. Texas Trash was able to make a donation to the people there. The devastation in this town is heartbreaking to say the least.

I was shocked at the vendor booths at this show- simply amazing!!! Can't wait to go back!! 

So if you decide to head to OKC on October 5, 2014. Be sure to head to Bricktown and visit the Whiskey Girls bar. Great food, drinks, and a really good time.

See y'all soon!!

Repurposed Parts

"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving." - Albert Einstein

This is exactly how I feel these days. I must keep moving to be successful. Anything you encounter in life that's worth having, requires a lot of hard work, dedication, and a VERY SUPPORTIVE FAMILY. Recently I purchased a jewelry display from Brandy Evans at Pocket Full of Heirlooms. It was a fabulous piece made from a  vintage bicycle seat. I decided I needed more of these fabulous stands and the hunt was on for creative pieces to put together.

My Dad had a friend who restores amazing retro and antique bicycles. We went to his house to dig through his barn looking for salvage pieces. I was shocked by the supply in his barn. 

Loved this turquoise one!

The coolest part was his 1929 Chevy that still runs like a dream.
So we hit the backroads for a country spin. You definitely view the world a little slower and sweeter in this ride.

He was very generous is helping me fill my request for bicycle parts to display my repurposed jewelry.

 Here is another idea I found on Pinterest for a display idea.

I'm proud of the way my display pieces turned out. Thanks Daddy for taking ideas and turning them into works of art.

Any other ideas for creative jewelry displays?

Pinkalicious Prom and Vintage Show

On April 26, 2013, if you happened to be driving down a little Texas backroad, you may have been prompted to follow these little signs. If you were so lucky, you embarked upon one of the grandest events Anna, Texas has ever had......PINKALICIOUS VINTAGE PROM AND ANTIQUE SHOW.

We had over 50 talented vendors from all over the great state. Grayson Hills Winery was there selling their sangria and Barn Red wine. Southern Cross band kicked off the prom with country classics and old rock n' roll. And everyone dressed to impress with old prom attire that was nothing short of Grits n' Glamour. 

Miss Hailey Hargrave... she painted my "fix your makeup" sign.

My best friend Jessica and I. 

Sweet little future gypsies.

Kacy and Chase share a dance in the barn.

The gals from Southern Willow in Celina.

The gals from Junk Ju Ju...

Perhaps the Belles of the Ball were Saint and Sinner... the two pink Shastas.
"Saint" belongs to my mother dearest.
I guess you can guess who "Sinner" belongs to. She happens to be the Gilded Lilly House of Sin after 10 PM.
