Junk O Rama Prom 2011

The Prom came and went in the blink of an eye! We don't spend as much time prepping and preparin' as what the high school prom girls do- but I bet we have more fun!!!

Suzanne dressed for Prom I enjoy vintage dresses so much- I even appreciated them before I was married....guess I've always appreciated a classic style. So this year I dug out of my closet a dress I bought 14 years ago at a Vintage Clothing store in Petaluma, California . To add to it- my 1960's custom eagle boots and a stamped leather belt with the name Stella that I hand painted. The belt was a Warrenton purchase last year- I had to have it......Stella was my great grandmother's name!

We met our annual prom dates and headed north to Warrenton for the evening- along the way we spied the best field of bluebonnets.....we spun the wheels around to snap a few pics!

The weather was wonderful for the event-
couldn't have been better!

We spied a pair of boots on our way in (notice the short brown boots on the left in top photo)- so 2 booths in my friend headed back to the car to put away her daughter’s old brown boots- for an Older pair that were purchased for her feet! She danced the night away in them! She matched my daughter as I had just purchased a sweet pair of brown semi vintage kid boots from Mindy at The Primtique when we were shopping there a few days earlier! Now note tall brown boots in the photo below on the sweet girl on the bench!

It is always so fun to visit with the Gypsy family-
they are smiles all night long! We all are-even non family!

Music playing- The John Evans band honkytonk style, stars twinkle, pics in the old outhouse, shopping in the Gypsy tent and meeting and catching up with old friends while starting conversations with new ones as well!

It's hard to describe- I just know it's one night that I love sitting back and smiling as my daughter and her friends dance and dance. Occasionally they give us funny looks in regards to other attendees’ choice of attire for the night- so we laugh it off and enjoy.

The girls with curls in Pink twirling as much as they can. I know it takes a lot of effort on the Gypsies part- so we are Thankful for their desire to allow so many to have such a fun time in Warrenton! Thanks Amie, Jolie, Mr. & Mrs. Sikes- we love your Junk O Rama Prom!
