when the GoIN gets tough…the tough hits the roAD!

September 7, 2010

to pick up where i left off…..

BeCAUSE there was no time for rest, we decided we had no option but to: a) adhere to mom’s torturous, inhumane, just-let-us-die, homeopathic ALfaLFA-therapy regime, b) pull ourselves up by our bootstraps, and c) GeT to WoRK.

the tents went up…

thE port-A-PottY rolled in…

{nothin says party like a port-a-potty!}

and i’m not sure what it is….but nothing says ‘PhoTo-OP’ to amie and me like a potty in transit! 🙂 ya know what they say…you can take the girl outta the country but you can’t take the country outta the girl…

{we like the fancy photo-ops!!:)}

ThEN we loaded up for a little roadtrip with the FiLM crew on our tails…it was a convoy across TeXAS like none other! here’s a shot of amie…

{JeRRY & PiERS adjusting our windshield-road cams. yes she’s eating here…but she had a mouthful in all my shots…she might kill me for posting this :)}

and here’s me…

{it appears chris might have been giving me some important directions here…seriously chris, give me a moment…i’m ready for my close-up!}

we were EaSTBOUND & DoWN! breaker-breaker 1-9! we FouND tonz o’ JuNK and hauled it back to GypsYViLLE for our JuNK-A-PALooZA

{AMiE & DaVID…we’ve just loaded and gettin’ ready to get back on the road!}

BuT first…JeRRY and the guys attach and secure the OFFiCiAL trailer-cam before we go…

annnnd then we made it back to the LanD o’ GypSYViLLE to get ready for our BiGGO GaLACTiC JuNK-A-PaLOOZA….

{the front corner of the tent…FLeAMARKET whimsy…}

JuST like a GypSY…

{LoVin this JuNKYard find! (thanks to anthologieimages.com for the pic)}

AnD here’s one of our new tee designs…SaVE the PLaNET! it’s the OnLy one with CoRNBREAD!

{mmm-hmmm!!! HoNEY HuSH!}

and another tent shot…

{a hodge-podge of random AMeriCANA greatness! sweet LaND of LiBERTY!}

 and oh-how-much we looooove the ‘moonlight-on-the-tent’ shots. there’s just something magical and peaceful and beautiful about this moment…the fruits of your labor, chandeliers glowing, tent decorated, under the canopy of a striped tent…all nestled safely under the TeXAS sky. twas the night before….

{the calm before the storm…}

stay tuned!!! JuNK-A-PaLOOZA pics headed yer way!
