Euella - A Once Upon A Time Story

Now when Euella was born in Clarksville, Texas, her father insisted that she be named after the most famous man to ever come out of that town – Euell Gibbons - who wrote the classic book Stalking the Wild Asparagus.  Actually her name was quite a misnomer as Euella Rose Darling turned out to be the ugliest child in the state.  Why they had to tie a porkchop around her neck just to get the dog to play with her.  And the dog wasn’t a looker either.  But honey that didn’t stop Euella from wearing the brightest clothes or slatherin’ on the makeup.  And believe it or not she ended up marrying a millionaire!


  1. How cute is this!
    I just came by to say hello and to tell you I am trying to add a page at the top of my site of people like yourself that sell your beautiful pieces.
    So hope you don't mind me putting your site on the list

  5. Oh you made me laugh!

    I have to say I am absolutely thrilled that you will be joining me on the carriage ride destined for Royal Wedding Wednesdays. When I hit the "publish" button I had a momentary feeling of panic that my post would be met with only the sound crickets chirping. It has been quite the opposite, so much so that I feel we have a kindred spirit/sisterhood sorority.

    Here's to fairytales!

  6. You are one crazy woman! I love Euella and her story!!! LOL!!!
