Day Trippin' and Junkin'

Hubby and I took a drive to Forney, Texas, last weekend. Yes folks, Forney...rhymes with horny and their official school mascot is the (drum roll please)...jackrabbit. Hee hee. Lots of warehouses filled with all kinds of furniture. Since we are bursting at the seams in the house we are in, I'm not in the frame of mind for buying large pieces, but it's always fun to look., scratch that, WHEN I have my dream art space, I would love to have a religious statue of Mary to look over and supervise my creative messes. Or maybe a carnival-esque french fry dude to spice up my muse. It was so trippy to see all the life-size statues. One of the warehouses in particular was really cool and creepy. Taxidermic animals (I am both repelled and intrigued by them), mannequins, parts of carnival rides - I wouldn't want to be trapped there at night! Other than that local jaunt, we have been laying low these days. Hope you're having a great week.
