Canton...a little bit of heaven

There is one place on Earth that truly makes my heart sing with Joy and that my friend
is Canton. For you that do not know it is the largest Flea Market in the USA- of course everything in Texas is the biggest-right? Last Thursday I took my sister -Brenda, friend Kaye and off we went for a day of pure discovery. That's how I always feel when I go because I always discover wonderful new things for my Home and new things to make myself and of course more old -rusty-chippy things to make into something wonderful. Its a day of catching up with friends on the trip down(3 1/2 hours) and a day of laughs and just having fun with the girls! Of course we visited my favorite booth - Laurieannas- in the Arbors - a gorgeous,creative booth that I could just live in! This time I bought a wonderful green moss bunny and green eggs and moss carrots - perfect for my Easter Spring table. I also added to my flower vases, I think I have bought about 4 from her now, I love picking my flowers in the spring and putting them in my pretty little vases. I also bought jewelry this time, something I have never done there but it was all handmade and sooo creative.

We plan our route around eating at the Texas Cafe ( a big red barn in front of the Civic Center) We ONLY eat at this place - we have never tried any where else. And we ALWAYS eat chicken salad croissants curly fries and of course a homemade apricot fried pie. I did not even like apricots till I ate one of these. This time Kaye and me ate a cheeseburger with grilled onions and it was great too! They can not cook anything bad!!!It is a family that runs the place- of course I like that concept!

On the way home we always plan when we can escape again to our little bit of heaven on earth-want to go?
