More Stops Along the Road

It seems that in my last post I forgot a few ladies who absolutely have to come along on our virtual road trip.


My sister, Joanne, found "Ramblin' Rose" at the junkyard...

So how could I not invite her to come along?


Joanne has her own little t@b trailer...already decorated for a dream trip down Route 66.


Now we've got room for more passengers on our little road trip through blogland.


Like my dear friend, Sandy. She and I often talk about taking a road trip together...we've just never managed to actually do it. In preparation, though, she made me a little album, noting favorite routes across the country and stops we could make along the way. So Sandy, you're invited on this one...and bring your camper...I think we're going to need it!


With my Casita, that will make three campers...plenty of room for all of you!


So get your virtual suitcase packed...

And don't forget your camera...with Brenda along with us, we're bound to learn how to take good photos.


Let's "Cowgirl Up", make a few detours, and pick up more of our blog sisters...



Like Lakeesha in Chicago...


Lakeesha and I became "blog girlfriends" when we were both grieving losses. I think we each found writing our blogs to be one way of healing. Lakeesha wrote that she would like to join us on our virtual trip...how could I have forgotten her in my previous post?


"Grandma Barb" (don't you love that "handle"?)  has asked to join our little caravan of crazy bloggers too...she's in Minnesota so we can pick her up on our way to see Vickie's sock monkeys.


Now that we've filled two of our three campers, it's time to hit the road again...


After all, we've got places to go and more bloggers to see.
Next up is one of my all-time favorite bloggers, Jane. Jane's blog, Mamie Jane's is amazing. Allow yourself at least a whole day to see it all. She takes vintage "junk" and transforms it into amazing decorative items for her home...and she even shows the rest of us how she does it.


Jane was featured in the Fall/Winter issue of Flea Market Style...and I'm still wondering when she will get her own show on HGTV. (Jane would blow "House Hunters" right out of the water!)

Luckily, Route 66 winds right through Missouri. so Jane...we're on the way. I think you deserve a few special blogger hugs right now, too.


Sherry from Back To Vintage will have to come along too.


She has a knack for finding antique malls and vintage bargains. Mississippi isn't that far off our route is it?


After we pick up Sherry, it's back to Texas for our little group of vintage dream travelers...we've still got room in our third camper...


For Geneva. In her blog, My Heart's Song, Geneva writes about transitioning into retirement and remodeling a mobile home. Geneva commented that she would love to decorate a vintage trailer...so let's invite her to come along.

And how could I have forgotten CeeKay, in Arizona? Although I don't know CeeKay well, I admire  her greatly. Somehow, while battling ovarian cancer, she manages to write a blog, raise a family and decorate a beautiful home. You can visit her at her blog, Thinkin' of Home.
(I'm not sure that CeeKay actually lives anywhere near Winslow, Arizona,  but I've always wanted to stand on a corner there!)

Nancy's kitchen stencil
The idea for a road trip was actually hatched by my sister Nancy and I one day in 2004 when we were sitting in her little kitchen booth making our summer plans...so I have to include this photo from our 2007 trip. (Our last "road trip" was in 2008...you can read about it here, at the blog Nancy and I wrote together.)



We were both a little a lot heavier back then but I think we figured that if we were color-coordinated we'd blend in with the camper and no one would notice. I know that Nancy will be with us in spirit  on our blogger road trip...and I guarantee she will bless us with lots of laughter along the route.

So we're on our way again and, as the sign says, the road never ends.




Wouldn't it be fun if some day we could turn this little road trip dream of mine into reality and actually all meet up for our own blogger Cowgirl Prom?

How much fun would that be?

I think it's becoming a blogger caravan!!!! Yesterday's post had me all choked up and now you've outdone yourself with the oh-so-fun images to go with your post. The photo of you and Nancy is precious.

It's a small world after all, don't you think?

I've been at estate sales for two days and I'm just now checking in on my favorite blogs. What a WONDERFUL surprise to be included in your camper caravan. As I was reading I was wondering if you would get down as far as Mississippi!!! I wish the trip could take place in reality...what fun that would be!!!
