Melissa Shirley Trunk Show at Chaparral

I took yesterday off work and my friend, Barbara, and I drove down to Stitches in Time and Chaparral to shop.  We had a great time.  DS decided to come along when I told him we would be eating at the original Ninfa's on Navigation (just down from Minute Maid park).  He never turns down excellent Mexican food.

Frances at Stitches in Time had this Melissa Shirley canvas marked at a good price and I have been looking for a Nativity backdrop for some time, so I snatched it up.
I also bought some threads for a Jean Smith floral which I will show you tomorrow.  Then we went to Chaparral (800-572-7743-website doesn't show the trunk sale but I am sure they would be glad to ship to you) where a Melissa Shirley trunk show was in progress (15% off), and I got these two canvases, a quail and pelican (I think).
Afterwards we went to Ninfa's, had a fabulous lunch (I had grilled redfish tacos-Weight Watchers friendly), DS had pork tamales which were huge, and Barbara had a mixed plate.  Had to skip their fabulous margaritas since I was driving and it was about 30 minutes back north.  Then DS had band practice from 3:00-6:00.
All in all, a great way to spend a day off, before school starts.
Wishing you a great one too.
