Get Your kicks... on Route 66!

Nothing like the OPEN road! Just possibility before you and you are the master of your destiny.

sort of.

When traveling I believe it is imperative to have a good co-pilot... some one to help navigate the unknown. Crosby would agree.

When my sweet brother and his amazing family left Denver - they invited Sophie to "hop in" and come stay with them in Altus. So she did...

When figuring out how to get her home I was thinking Flight? or Road trip? As a gypsy junkin'
mom there was only one choice... Road trip. ( That wayI could get my hands on those babies again too.)

So Off to Altus Ok. I went ( location of Altus AFB home to magnificent men and women who serve our country!) ... When I got there everybody appeared normal... hot but normal.

To make the most of the journey I plotted our return trip to intersect with the Historic Route 66- and some amazing shopping... I believe in efficiency!

One place that Sophie or I can NOT quit talking about is NEST.

What a cache of fabulosity! Like the jackpot of ART/Design/ retail and industrial chic...

We fell in love with this place!

2900 sw 6th Ave. Amarillo TX 79106... nestled in the best little antique district right on the Route 66.~ from6th.blogspot

This is Kasey. Kasey Robinson ~ Her and Theo are the proprietors of this haunt featuring local mixed media art, high design interior accents, gifts and handmade- recycled treasures.

Warning- I could not stop finding amazing things to share so there will be lots of pics...

What an adventure. Sophie actually began to "enjoy" junkin and I had her all to myself... for 24 hours...I loved every minute of it!

The drive home through New Mexico inspired me to plan another trip soon...
How beautiful is New Mexico?

How lovely is she? XO.

Needless to say, I gathered a truck full of treasures and have already loaded up my shop with them... I love my job! Thanks for the memory Sophie...I love you.
