The one about the "fridge for sale" sign

On November 4th of last year, I put a picture of a sign in someones yard in texas that said 'frigerator for sale. Jess and I joked about it on the road in. I swear to you now, 6 months later, the sign and "fridge" are still in the yard. 'nuff said.

The one with the Zapp Hall prom pictures

Now we can talk about the prom at Zapp Hall, put on by the Junk Gypsies, and Cheryl and the great people at Zapp Hall. My new friend Nigel did wear a gorilla suit, commando underneath. He was certainly a hit with the ladies. A lot of the girls wore tutus and tank tops, some wore vintage prom dresses, and one took an old wedding dress and dyed it aqua, it was beautiful. I was a rebel and wore my ramones shirt, but it looked very cute with my fluffy skirt and new sandles. Jess looked super cute, as always. She has the best smile.
This is us with officer hottie. I am not one to ogle men, but he was beautiful.
There was a woman who actually wore a lampshade on her head, and a woman who dressed as Frida Kahlo. All in all it was very tame, everyone had fun and it ended much too early at midnight. We decided next time we would skip the prom and arrive in the beginning of antique week, when everyone is bright and perky.

The one where the readers of the Santa Cruz Good Times voted my store "best interior design" the first time

It does not come out for a few days, but Saffron and Genevieve was voted best interior design shop in Santa Cruz by Good Times readers. I work very hard to bring beauty to the store and peoples homes, so this makes me so happy. Thanks!

The one with more fun nights in Texas

Me and Jess in DT's booth - first night.

I just think this one is so cute,
Jessie calls it "don't fight, boys".

The one with the original spanish bullfighting poster from 1953

I finally got the pictures of our trip to Texas. It was like living it all over again, they made me laugh and smile. I'll start with my favourite find. It's a poster from a bullfight in Salamanca, Spain in 1953. It stands about 8' high. Here's a picture. My shipment should be here in a few weeks, I will post when it arrives.

The one about deferred adjucation

An interesting thing I found out. If you get a ticket in Texas you can request "deferred adjucation" from the judge. I promised not to get another ticket in Texas (which I did not), and the ticket was taken off of my record.

The one where I do shout outs to my friends in Texas

I just got back from Texas. I was not going to go, but some friends I met there last year were calling, I got nostalgic, and most importantly, Susan (you are wonderful) had an opening at the Hillcrest Inn last minute. Since Jessie took all of the pictures on her camera, you'll have to wait to see what I found. Real quick I need to say a bunch of stuff about some people you probably don't know, so I apologize.
I was so amazed to see all of the people we met last year, it was like we never left. Danny Tytenicz was still the gracious host in his booth, and a gentleman. Kathy was so happy to see us, and a friend of hers in New Mexico (?) had seen her pic on my blog so that was pretty cool. Clark was as cute as ever. David played his guitar and sang so beautifully (rock and roll!). Of course Mr. Jimmy was adorable. I should give a shout out to Chicago Joe "Hey Joe!" Also a hello to Jennifer, whom Jess calls "that cutie pie". I met a new friend, Nigel. You will see him later in a gorilla suit (at the prom!). Nigel, if you're reading this, I'm sorry for any comments about your head or anything else that you may have thought rude, it's the language barrier. You are a darling. If you were Scottish I don't think Jove would have stood a chance. (sorry sweetie)
