Ah South Carolina... you have seduced me! Bluffton and Savannah how could you be so darn good and keep it hidden from me all these years? Charming yes, generous hospitality certainly, style... and the food have alone whet my appetite for more. But the real kicker is this, let's just say I wish I could talk like you too! I want to be called Sister, or Miss Coco or anything except late for dinner.
The reason I was utterly lucky enough to come to South Carolina is not just to eat Fried Green Tomatoes and admire the Spanish Moss. I am here to help my friend Lynn (who reads my blog, wrote me, came to France, and then invited me to South Carolina) haul her French antiques across country to Marburger fair in Texas. But first we have to:
- Pack up her mirrors, chandeliers, dressers, farm tables, iron bed, stone garden urns... nothing light, nothing small, nothing that I can stuff into a suitcase.
- Gather tarp, ropes, boxes, tape, marking pens...
- Then drive (20 HOURS LONG) Lynn's stuffed to the high heavens truck across country.
- Set up the antique stand ...in Marburger... by un loading the truck to the tent and making it look pretty.
- During the fair, there are a few parties such as a faded grandeur prom, and a blogger's feast, and a day with Mari.
- and of course there will be plenty of Tex Mex.
Susana, who also reads my blog and met me a few weeks ago in France, will meet Lynn and I in Marburger and help too.
Good friends, antiques, a road trip and Tex Mex. Sounds like a Thelma and Louise style adventure...and since I saw him once, maybe I'll see the cowboy Brad Pitt again?
Lynn King's Stand will be at Marburger, Tent B Aisle A Booth 6, starting September 29 until October 3rd.
