A New Month

Do you feel the excitement with the start of a new month and the changing of the seasons.  Do you wonder what this month will bring.  There's definately a crispness to the morning air here and I just love the start of a new month.  November is packed full of things to do in Texas, from antiquing to attending sales or spending time with family, it's all good. 

We will literally hit the ground running this month.  So much to do, so many places to go, and spend time with family for our Thanksgiving feast is high on my list.  I can't wait to see my boys and family all under one roof.  Making my boys favorite desserts and getting to sit and catch your breath and visit is a welcoming time.

You all probably know that the Canton Texas Flea Market starts in a few days.  There's always a treasure or two to find there.  Once you've shopped it, head on down the road to see Jo at The Quinlan Trade Days.  I've done a post on her before, which you can check out here.  She just got back from a shopping trip and I'm sure you'll find something with her, if it hasn't already sold.

Just this week alone there is so much more you can do in Texas.  Huntsville will have the start of a new monthly Flea Market, Kate's Gilded Lily Trade Days, begins on Friday.  You can find out more info. HERE.

Bloom and Bee Swanky in Waco will have their Christmas Open House starting this Thursday evening.  Check out their blog for details.

The girls @ Rusted Gingham are having their annual Barn Sale in Gonzales and several of my friends are setting up there.  See their blog for more info.

And if you are in the McKinney Texas area, check out Stephanie and other vendors at the opening of Treasure Spotter's Market.  She's already filling up her new space, indoors too, and it's looking great!  Check her blog for details.

You can find Robelyn of Red Neck Chic at the Funky Finds Sale in Ft. Worth on November 12.  Her blog will have info. on this.

On November 19, my friend is tentatively having an open house at her shop.  She is so talented and you won't be disappointed at her creative vignette's she'll have there.  I spoke to her this morning and she's working very hard to make this happen.  I'll have details for you as soon as she gives me the go ahead.  Just in case you are wondering who I am talking about, take a peek here at what she's had before.  Don't tell her I told you though (wink).

Of course at the end of the month, we'll be back in Austin for the City Wide Garage Sale.  We are going on a buying trip soon and should have lots for you to choose from.  Remember early shopping on that Saturday at 8:30.

Don't forget to turn your clocks back this Saturday.  Hope to see you soon!
