Big H & Mini Round Top

Last week my husband had a business conference in Houston. Well, I just had to tag along because my grandson happens to live in Sugar Land which is on the outskirts of big H. The first couple of days I was stuck in a downtown hotel. This was not too exciting, but I did get to go eat lunch with my son who works downtown. He showed me how to navigate the tunnels. I never knew there was a whole other world going on under all those skyscrapers! Downtown seems to have rebounded from Hurricane Ike and is running on high octane now.

I found the address and we promptly entered it in our GPS and "Go Go Guy" led the way.


These burlap sacks are being used to recover furniture.


Cool, but a little scratchy!



We did not get to the sale until about 12:30. I was told there were thousands waiting to get in at 9:00 that morning. Needless to say, everything seemed a bit picked over.

I loved this clever use of red faucet handles.


Carolyn Westbrook's booth. I took more photos of her booth, but there were so many people everywhere I kept getting their backsides and of course while they were bending over too.


All pink and pretty at Willow Nest's tent.
