As I was taking down my very own Christmas tree, hiding behind some ribbons and lights, was a red shapped Texas ornament. I have a few others that I like, well a bell and a Texas in more deep warm colors (I should of snapped some pictures of them), this one was bright red, with the words the Merry Christmas Y'all....but the best part was the little smiling face with google eyes on it! I have no idea where it came from, or who gave it to me, and if you did I do love it, but just have to add it to my Tacky Texas Treasures! Is it too early to hang it up at the restaurant??
If you have some Texas Shaped Items that you would like to donate to our collection Please let me know!!
The other day my husbands business partner found a Texas shape candy dish while shopping at a second hand store. I am always interested in what things can be Texas shaped or decorated... Well yesterday, I was shopping at the same store and found a cross-stitch, laced, ribboned Texas thing...and just had to buy it.
Then the thought came to me, I know Texans love their state, and I too love the state, however sometimes I think some things are better off not having the shape of Texas on it...I don't know what do you thing?
If you have something Texan, that you think just might be a tacky treasure, I'd love to have it, or at least a picture of it. Send me an email or feel free to mail me the item so I can post it on my blog and put it up on our Texas treasure wall at the restaurant. If you bring it in to us at Texas Pride Barbecue you will get a free dessert.
