AiRSTReAM ChRONiCLES: chapter 3-channeling texas bars

March 11, 2010

YeSTErDAY amiE shocked herself not once but twice, I sandEd the floor once twice 3 TiMES, DaD reworked the salvaged CirCUS WHeeL bar top more times than we want to admit & JaNIE was STiLL wishin for a CoRONA.

we’ve channeled LeGENDARy TeXAS baRS, BLoWN the EleCTRiCiTY and had deliveries of LuckenBACH souvenirs, OLd DIXiE ChiCKEN wood, & HoMEMadE DING-DoNGS. 4 DaYS left…the SaGA continues…

{this is the floor at step 62 of 97}

 yeS, it really took that many steps…(or maybe it just seemed like it…i’m not sure anymore….maybe i’m delirious from the paint fumes…)

{step 86}

If Lovin’ you is WroNG, i don’t wanna be right…

{incomplete but gettin’ there…}

MeanWHiLE we cosmically channeled LeGENDary TeXAS bars all day. we started off our morning with a visit from the girLS of the DiXIE chiCKEN who brought us a little piece of hiSTORY for the AiRSTREAM…

{carved up planks from DiXIE ChiCKEN tables}

ThEN…we had a special delivery from the MaILmAN…

{goodies sent StrAiGHT from LuCkenBACH, teXAS!}

which i have decided was DesTINY channeled directly from my cosmic vibes since i just happened to be sportin my LUckENBACH tee yesterday!

{yes, i’m a little giddy about the arrival of a LuCKEnBACH package! it’s like ChRISTMAS!}

AND the day just kept getting beTTER! because then a little angel named PaTRICIA showed up with a little piece of heaven in to-go boxes filled with soul food and HoMeMADE desserts! deeeee-licious homebakED breads, chicken spaghetti, tortilla soup, and hellllloooo cookies, kolaches and HomEMADE ding-dongs courtesy of MeLiSSA & ThE BAKE ShoPPE all the way from CyPrESS, TeXAS!

{CooKIEs, KoLaCHES, and yes! HOMeMADE ding-donGS!}

{XOXOXO back at ya, MeLiSSA!!}

We’RE movin in the furniture, hangin the HoMEmaDE curTAINS, and fillin’ our BeLLIES with good grub!

LiFE is good and we’re glad y’all are here! PuLL up a chair & stAY awhile…the completion is near!

    Girls- Amazing as always!!! How fortunate to have a little piece of the chicken grace the airstream- I was straining to see if my initials were any part of it! I would love to have an old board or two from the Chicken around here!! Can’t wait to see you– Warrenton is near!

    I adore that ceiling reflection! You girls are fabulous! I love the chronicles coming as you work so hard, but the goodies and treats are to die for as said! Sing while you work!

    Smiles, Cyndi
