All this George tawk has made me homesick. But, I got a good dose of Texas today! And that can possibly cure any ailment…even a missing King!
As I headed in to town to mail BB’s correspondence, I nearly fell over a package that the UPS man had delivered quietly sometime this afternoon! As soon as I saw the return address, I knew I had to stop and get that dude unwrapped! Yes, I’m a bit impetuous. But after George’s failure to communicate/sing, I felt like I really, REALLY
couldn’t wait needed to see last week’s purchase from the Great State of Texas right then and there!
I had seen this beauty years ago in a Southern Living magazine issue in an advertisement. I remember showing the picture to my aunt and my mom and we oooo’ed and ahhhhh’ed and wondered how in the world we’d EVER get our hands on it. Then came along the internet and it wasn’t hard to find at all! So last week I called a really nice lady at the Amon Carter Museum and she fixed me right up with this little creamer. AND….it was on SALE!! Can you believe it? I mean, this was meant to be! It was a sign that I had to have it.
BTW…it’s a reproduction from the Amon Carter family’s farm dinnerware first made in 1923. Imagine…your own china pattern! And they have the same fantastic taste as me!! *snort* Who KNEW?!!! Yeah, it’s a bit indulgent. Lord knows I have enough china and misc. dishes to supply half of Texas.
It’s my one weakness, to quote a famous lady!! We all have a weakness…right?!
So I’m sharing my pretty creamer and will follow-up with more bluebonnet finds in a post down the road a piece.
NOTE: One of my Central Texas correspondents reports that the bluebonnets are up at her place but they’re still small. More rain is coming to jack them up though. Another source from Austin says the Lady Bird Wildlife Center is predicting a bumper crop this spring!!!! More on that front later…..
