Vintage Inspiration #98 Talking Trash

Blogland is full of characters...
(and I use that word "character" in the most flattering way)
so let me introduce you to one of the sweetest, funniest,
 most endearing you'll find;
Miss Debbie of Talking Trash.

Debbie with her precious miracle grandbaby, Bella

I started reading Debbie's blog Talking Trash about 4 years ago (and I remember her first post). At least a year before I started my own blog. She is one of the Grand Dames of the Texas Shows. This is how I found out what blogging was all about. Seeking inspiration for my own flea market and antique mall spaces I turned to blogging to see what all the Big Dogs were doing. I remember studying each photo that this gal posted. Her style is all her own, she's an original Texas Princess!

This woman is a creative powerhouse!

Deb confesses that she has a short attention span and gravitates to shiny objects. And she refers to her decorating ADD as to the dog from the movie "UP"; "Squirrel" Alert! If you haven't seen the movie, you should. One of the best!

Debbie is taking a giant step and will be selling at Marburger this Fall. So on any given weekend, this is how you'll find the Dynamic Duo; Debbie and her hubby, the legendary Cat Daddy, with their treasures piled high.
I'm excited to follow her as she prepares for the new venue. Knowing Deb, it will be quite the ride!

Now, just want to throw this idea out for the 2nd Anniversary of Vintage Inspiration, which will be the first week of September. I'd love to celebrate with a few Give Aways from you, the supporters of Vintage Inspiration. If you'd like to have Vintage Inspiration Sponsor a Give Away of one of your items, or a Gift Certificate to your online store or your Etsy Shop, or even your blog, then just get in touch with me. You provide the item, and it will be a part of the Big Celebration. If you're interested just email me with the subject Vintage Inspiration Give Away. I just ask that it be "vintage or vintage inspired".

You know the linky drill. I'm on the lookout for features of your blogs, so please have a link back within your post to be included. And please link up only Vintage or Vintage Inspired posts.

Check out these other great Friday parties 
while you have on your party outfit!

  3. Debra,
    Great features! I am off to check them out!Thank you so much for hosting!

  4. It's really hard to describe Deb, though I thought you did a great job. You just have to meet her in person. She's a one and only true Friend. She'll make you laugh, cry, and leave you wishing for more. Now that CD, that's a whole other post!! I'm so excited we are going to be at Marburger together since we were at Zapp together, it only makes sense to keep it going...

  5. Well, I think I need to go meet Deb! Sounds like a great gal, and one talented gal, too! Marburger? I dream of going one of these days!! What a veritable feast for the senses!!

    Hope you're having a lovely week!
    Hugs and Blessings,

  27. Debra, anytime you want to be my PR person, frontman, wingman, or just my friend your price. The job is yours!
    I've thought and thought trying to come up with the words to tell you how much this means to me and the best two I've found are...Thank you.
    Your friendship is exactly the reason I continue to blog. God would have brought us together sooner or later, but by blogging, He got it done a lot faster!
    You've opened up your heart and home to me and I am a very blessed woman for it. I wish there was a way I could tuck you in my back pocket and carry you around with me, but since I can't...I'll just tuck you in my heart for safekeeping.
    You are my sister and the miles between us can't change that!
    P.S. It's not fair. My photos look better on your page than they do on mine!
    P.P.S. Princess...has a nice ring to it!
