Tim Gunn is a Liar

True or False Statement:

Fashion is glamorous.

You be the judge after viewing these behind the scenes pics from Double D Ranchâ„¢'s spring photo shoot.

I think Tim Gunn is a liar.

Actually Hanna (the blonde) would fit right in with SOTF. She is from the Czech Republic, but loves Texas and her cowboy boots. Yall have got us all hankering for a trailer…I may be the next sister if I can find one!

I figured if I could put the bag lady in, then all was fair game.

Martha, you’re right – the weather was horrendous. The girls were freezing, but at least we got to keep our winter coats on and they didn’t. Poor things.

Lola, I think so too! Yall have me really desiring a cute camper….just not sure I could pull it and back it in. I never was good at which way to turn the steering wheel when backing up a trailer.

LaVerne, you make it sound simple. I on the other hand would take out trees, fences, curbs, mailboxes and just anything in a 10ft radius. I took out one of those Sonic order signs just the other day … and I didn’t even have a camper!

Elsie, you would have been glad to have missed this one. It was absolutely the worst conditions. Cold, windy, rainy. Simply unpleasant and the poor girls were miserable.

If Wendy can’t Photoshop the skirt into place, Colortek in St. Louis can.

Hi Lisa,
The last time I saw you we running through the Miami Airport together after shooting the kids’ book for JCP. Talk about going from hot to cold!

did you see that Elsie commented on you? Same post, just an earlier comment. (look above)
Yes we are freezing – I think it was colder this time than last year in SA. Wet + Wind + Cold = no good.

I agree, Lisa is fun and Groovy. She has been doing hair and makeup for us for about15+ years ( gosh has it really been that long?) She has such a terrific eye and she just “gets” Double D. btw: I checked on the package from you and Doris is not finding it on Susie’s desk. Can you drop me another? Same address but put it to my attention:

Cheryl – In a previous life I was an art director for JCP catalog down in Big D, little a, double l, a, s. We used Lisa for hair and make-up on some of our Kids’ Books. The kids liked her because she wasn’t much taller than they were. We liked her because she was always fun to be around. I think one of my best covers ever was one that she worked on.

Paul, thanks – I’m glad you like it. I will see about digging it up off Susie’s desk. It is a bit of a wreck right now since she has been out on maternity. If we can’t locate it, I will get with you to send another. btw: how do you know Lisa? We LOVE her!

Cheryl – Yes, I am Colortek. I sent a package to Susie E. some time ago. Last time I talked to her (before maternity leave) she said it was still on her desk. Doris L. may have it now. If you can’t put your hands on it, let me know and I’ll send another PDQ.

Paul

ps – I really like what you guys are doing down there!

Funrider, where are you from and do I know your neighbor? I would love to hear more about your trailer. I am seriously thinking about getting one and joining up but trailer backing is still an issue. Thanks for your comment – we would love for you to sign up for to our blog RSS feed. xoxo cheryl

Really enjoyed looking at all the colorful clothes, blankets, etc. photos. What a wonderful store this must be. My next door neighbor is from Yoakum and next time she goes “home” I am going to tag along just to visit your store.

The models were truly beautiful and the vintage trailer wasn’t bad either. I’m a new SOTF member and I encourage women all the time to join. It’s the greatest !!!

Thanks Cheryl. It’s on the way. I hope I get it to you soon enough. Due to the extreme conditions of shoot, I’m guessing y’all could use some help with your images. I’ll follow up in a few days.

I have to agree that this was one of the worst weather days we have ever shot in. We were lucky enough to be close to the house so the girls could warm up a bit but the wind chill was horrible.

I would like to personally thank Cheryl for picking the best pictures she could find of me! thanks a ton sis! I have gone from being the model to #1 pooper scooper!

Lisa, I still think the una bomber shoot was colder!
