Well since this the very first annual Elizabeth Wants to See It! Creative Display Competition, I am just making it up as I go. So, I think it will be fun (and easier for me at the moment) to show the displays in several different postings. Mainly, if I waited until I got them all loaded, and comment upon and so on, you would get frustrated with me for taking so long...and besides...this makes it look more official...don't you think?
Well, it does to me.
So heeerrrreeee we go... (now playing soft, pageant, runway music...)
In a soft voice I am announcing:
Okay, so for our first posting, we have one very lovely Debbie York of Athens, Texas. Debbie loves puppies, makes pies, and will work for world peace - but only if she gets weekends off with her boyfriend, Skip....
Screeeech! Now you hear the record scratching really loud as this music comes to a screeching halt...
And now turn up the volume, stomp your cowboy boots (to kick off the poop), clap your hands and whoop and holler as the banjo and fiddle begins to play for......
Talkingwhitetrash DEBBIE YORK!!!!
Debbie is a gal on the prowl. The only pies you will see her handling are the ones made farm fresh that she is chipping off her boots. World peace is great, but if you hang with Debbie you will learn that her personal world is a piece of its own. Boyfriend, girlfriend, old friend or new friend, it doesn't matter, Debbie will welcome anyone into her trashy world if they walk the talk and can yackety yack. Debbie puts the talking in talkingwhitetrash and if she is talking to you that only means you are one trashy friend - the best kind!
If this hasn't got you clicking on her link by now you are either numb, blind, or your aren't paying attention which means you have to go back to the end of the line and start all over again before you can scroll down. Click. CLICK on her site! Yes, that is a requirement. In fact, I designed this post so it won't be able to scroll down until you actually click on her talkingwhitetrash site. I mean, I highlighted for you and everything...so click it! CLICK....ON....IT!
(Now don't go and tell me you actually clicked on the word, "highlighted" did you?) :-)
I bet you scrolled down to just test me didn't you? That means your are ornery. That's good. Debbie loves ornery people - so you are her people or rather, you are one of her peeps.
So you waited long enough....below is a peep for her peeps at her version of relaxation that she calls "Texasfied"
Okay, I know I showed this one photo already, but I didn't want to disrupt the flow of the photos. But don't you just love it?? NOW can't you hear the fiddles, the whooping and hollering and how this poor gal needs to relax? I love it! This poor gal is so pooped she doesn't have the strength to pull off her other boot! Look at her - she needs a good looking cowboy in there pulling off that boot and giving her a massage - but if Debbie did that, then she might have to put a red light in the window....and may get a citation for starting a red light district. Ha-hahaha! But for now you can find her without any red lights (yet) at Winnie &Tulula's, an antique mall owned by Gloria Kerzee. The address is 119 E. Tyler St, Athens, TX, phone 903-677-6868.
I met Debbie at Round Top Antique Fair in Texas a couple of years ago and we have stayed in touch "cyberally" since, so I felt safe with my bold fun with her. But if you ever get a chance to meet her, you will understand. Okay, this is the first posting, so not that I feel I need to, but just in case, I will take a moment to remind everyone that this is a friendly "competition" to inspire others, make us smile, and to give us ideas. And if the only idea you get is that you need to go get a good soak and relax, then the display did its job.
The more I stare at the photos, the more I want to steal those boots - literally. I love cowboy boots. I have about five pairs. Six would be great. :-) Feel free to leave comments of encouragement or comments on how you are going to steal every idea you see here - I mean - borrow for future projects and how you will put your own spin on it. I hope you are having as much fun with all this as I am.
Stay tuned for more postings with fun and creative displays....
Thanks for sharing, joining in, and being a part of my life. Oh, did I mention that my boot size is 7 and a half?
from my house to your house,
