My Return to the Cowtown Mallroom and a Little Birthday Cheer

Last weekend, I took another trip to the Cowtown Mallroom in Kansas City. This was the third time I'd been and things are really filling out. I'm happy to see the new vendors and the fun crowd.

I've seen a couple of these lately - pieces off of the front of old cars or tractors. So fun.

How awesome would this be in my living room?

SRO (Standing Room Only) Video just closed about a year ago. It was a staple in the Waldo neighborhood for years and I loved it - a huge foreign film section and a very tattoo-ed, knowledgeable staff - my kind of place! Amazing how quickly technology has transformed this industry, video really did kill the radio star and the cycle keeps moving . . .

After Cowtown, we checked out a flea market at the City Market. We got there at the tail end of it all, but I ran into The Statuary Guy. Couldn't help but take a concrete skull home for the porch.

The wrought iron bracket came from Hyde Park Antiques, our last stop on the tour.

Dash turned 6 yesterday and the day started with a celebration at school. This, after Dash opened his first present of the day; two African dwarf frogs, which he named "Tod" and "Tad".

Then it was on to T-Rex to celebrate with family and friends.

  1. HAPPY B-DAY DASH...what fun, Tad and Tod...he's his parents child fer sure, he is sooooo cute!!!

    LOVE the skull and ALL the crazy stuff...I have to tell ya, my crazy hen 'Goth' is a strange one, always lurking at the back of the coop, when I'm in the hen-yard, she peaks around the corner at me, has darker feathers than the rest of the hens...and she's Brandon's main if she gets a tattoo and starts wearing a skull necklace I'm gonna start worrying...

    Have a great weekend sista...miss ya!!!
