1  Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 30 GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by Eamea on: November 10, 2019 11:52:20 AM
We've been enjoying fall while we can.  Here's a picture of some trees on the way to a friend's house.

The Science Center had an exhibit on Pompeii.  I liked that everything was an artifact not a reproduction, but seeing the casts of the bodies was sobering.

The Lemp brewery closed about 100 years ago, and the complex was then home to International Shoe.  Even though it was more recently a shoe place everyone knows it as Lemp.  Anyway, it's now rented out piecemeal rather than one company doing business there.  I went to an estate sale and took some time to drive around the complex, thinking about what it was like to work there all those years ago.

Lastly, DH was wanting a poke cake so I made one.  That was really out of left field because I'll bet it's been at least 20 years since I've made one.  I'm not sure why he suddenly wanted one.  Flobot gave it the sniff test, and it passed.

Flobot and I are back from Texas.  Here she is on a cloudy day watching my uncle's horses get a snack.

From there we headed south to Ingram in Hill Country.  It's so pretty and peaceful there.  Flobot is pictured with the Guadalupe River and some cool fungus.  I tried to sound authoritative when I told her it was called duck-billed fungus because of it's shape.  I hope she bought it!  Wink

And of course, it's not camp if there isn't a fire in the evening for making smores.

Unfortunately it was dark both times we passed through Dallas.  Their night skyline is fun, but I was driving solo and there were just way too many bugs on the windshield to chance it.

Flobot arrived today!  Lucky for me she didn't eat all her snacks along the way, and she doesn't mind if I take her pillow to use as a dish cloth.

Echo is home with such an embarrassment of riches!  Here are all of the things:

Everything was so nicely wrapped, but my old heathen self didn't stop to take a photo of that.  Nope, I just dove right in.  Everything sent was wonderful, but my favorite is the tea towel.  It's exactly the kind I like:  100% natural fiber that actually dries rather than just pushing water around.

Another thing I thought particularly cool is the blue goose passport.  It lists the National Wildlife Refuges, and at most you can get your passport stamped when you visit.  I plan to send this out on future swaps in case there's a refuge nearby.  There's local coffee that smells wonderful and candy that looks tasty plus stickers, magnets, postcards (the otters!), a coin, reusable bags, cups, and so much paper ephemera to look at.  I've only scanned the scrapbook so far.  I want time to savor it and really look at the details.

Thank you so much for being such a generous host!  I feel bad that my box was downright anemic next to yours, but it is much appreciated.  Kiss

I apologize for being AWOL for so long.  I've flaked on posting but not on adventure!  I never thought my summer LV would see snow, but Baranof saw it in both Chicago and Madison, WI.

I found a new-to-me fabric store Batiks Plus.  Not only can you buy yardage but they have a remnant bin.  Picked up way too much.

I helped my cousin vend in Dallas at Frightmare, and Baranof easily made some friends there, including Gomez & Morticia Addams.

I got some holographic new kicks that light up!  I'm probably too old for such things, but then again, is anyone ever really too old for shiny shoes?

We also went to Paducah for the quilt show and spent Memorial Day putting flags on soldier's graves.

Baranof went with me to Tulsa, OK for his first vending job.  He did a great job displaying costumes

and had a good time hanging with the featured instructor David.

It was cloudy and cool most of the time, but on Sunday it was nice and sunny.  I took Baranof to meet the Golden Driller at the Expo Center.

There's a tourist trap along the way that enjoys the worst sort of puns.  It's the Uranus Fudge Factory, and they also have a restaurant, tattoo parlor, sideshow, and shooting range.  The fudge made in Uranus is actually really good, but I knew it wouldn't be fresh by sendouts.  I'm hoping to get back there for a longer visit.

Baranof arrived Saturday, and that evening we went to watch a friend dance.  Sorry the photo is so crappy (low level fluorescent lighting).

I had to redo my hair dye, and Baranof swore he was pretty good at it.  I didn't doubt his application skills, but I was worried he might get it all over himself so he only got to pose with the brushes and wiping rag.

He got pretty excited when he could help with relining a bra, though.  Here he is demonstrating how his holding skills are superior to any clip.

I just sent my questionnaire for Echo to go out on a new adventure.

Echo is home, and apparently she had a great time with WingsoftheWind.  There's so much loot I had to put it in two pictures!  Everything was wrapped so nicely, but being the heathen I am I didn't take any photos of that because I was too busy tearing into the box.  Here is the scrapbook, a favorite book of WOTW, hand painted seasonal magnets, the pretty bags things were in, and a magazine about North Carolina.  That biscuit cover is just killing me!  Oh, and there's also Echo's new Santa hat that fits her fin just fine, thank you.

Next up is all kinds of paper ephemera including a Krispy Kreme hat and postcards of barns with quilts on them.  I love this tradition, and the Seven Sisters pattern on the top card is a favorite pattern.  There's also a rubber duck and dancing jewelry.

I'm honored to have been your first LV swap partner, and I hope you'll do another round (or twenty)!  Thanks again!
