Houston’s largest collection of used cowboy boots, and a great selection of random Texas junk.
The owner is Bob Novotney, a baby-boomer hippie kind of guy with long, gray hair and a soul patch on his chin. He spends his weeks scouring his connections across Texas for the goods - nice used boots, denim jackets, cowboy hats and other miscellany that he can reload his shelves with. And, because he is shopping during the week, the store is only open Fridays and Saturdays. Bob says that over 30 years ago with just $50 to his name, he started the company selling various odds and ends, but he came to realize that the boots were a big draw for his customers. As his selection of boots grew, so did his customer base. "I'll go just about anywhere to pick up some new stock. I buy boots in any condition and I'll buy every pair I can find." - See more HERE

Fabric & carpet should be here in a few days. I ordered my fabric HERE because I found the lowest prices on this website and the shipping was free with orders over $35.00. The only local fabric store in my area is Joann Fabrics and we all know they ain't cheap! The fabric I chose is Home Decor Fabric. The total cost for my curtains, door window and two pillows was $54.36

This is Lola above on the left and Lilly on the right.
I wiped them down and the paint started coming of of Lola's ear, I was like WTF!
The only reason I did not throw a fit is because I was going to paint them.
First coat on Lola or Lilly I can't tell them apart anymore
I was not able to find any quality pictures this week of interiors so I decided to find all things that were popping the year I graduated from William Tennent High School. Some are not exactly from 84' but mid 80's. Here goes, like if you remember better yet leave a comment!

SO I CHECKED THE REST OF THE HEAD AND NO CRACKS OR HOLES SO I WHIPPED OUT MY GLUE AND THERE YOU GO ONE PERFECT ELEPHANT HEAD READY FOR PAINTING, AFTER IT DRIES. NO THANKS TO AMAZON THOUGH.
I am about to break out by brushes for a mural. My Sista Max wants me to paint a mural on her Teen Laurin's room. She said she either wants some type of wave pattern or cheetah. Her base color is going to be purple to match the comforter prints below. This should be fun. I'm gonna be all over it once they get the room painted with the base color. She asked me if they had to paint the ceiling, I said hell yeah. I ain't putting my work on anything that's gonna be half ass. That's not how I roll.
Heidi over at Honey Bear Lanehas got it going on! She did an awesome job on this piece. I wish I had room for a table like this. It's doesn't exactly fit in with my style but this could be that unexpected piece. Using bar stools for the legs, I'm speechless!You know what to do now, click your way over to her site see more pictures, directions and be inspired. Go ahead the link is right up there!
Today's junk is by way of Texas, once again. I told Ya'll that Texas is the junk capital. We are visiting the Cathedral of Junk. The owner of this property is Vince “Junk King" Hannemann has been collecting other people’s junk in his backyard since 1989. Over the past several years, he has constructed a massive “Cathedral of Junk”, much to the amusement and fascination of locals. It has become a tourist attraction. In 2010 the city closed the structure claiming it was unsafe and demanded Hannemann obtain proper building permits for his “auxiliary structure”. Last year the Cathedral was in danger of demolition and it got down to the wire. Luckily, Vince found the engineer, the lawyers, and architect and an army of volunteers moved 40 tons of junk out of the easement and he got his permit.
I picked up some items like the vents, light switches and stuff like that. I am this close to making up my mind on the furniture and hope to place my order this week. Checked out some accessories and getting ready to order fabric for my curtains. Lot's to do, lots to do.
This was the winner, see that price below.
Basic toilet for the powder room.
I am gonna try to talk my other half into replacing the sink in the powder room,
This is a inexpensive and nice little sink for downstairs. We shall see.
New vent covers, switches and sockets.
Pineapples anyone? This would be cute in my kitchen.
Coat hooks for the family room?
I love theses book ends but they were made of plastic and not real heavy at all.
I don't think they would hold anything up.
Ahhhh, I almost bought this one.
Thinking real hard on this piece for a side table.This lady was like that's a great price for
that piece but it will show too many fingerprints. I agreed and looked at her funny,
I wasn't sure but I think she was trying to get me away from it so she could buy it.
