Did y’all know I have a brother? His name is Jimmy Don Holmes. He lives in Crawford, Texas, home of Bush Ranch and long time home of many many Holmes. (tongue twister huh) My brother and I are kind of night and day. He likes to shock, I like to please. He was a wild child, I was (for the most part) well behaved. And He is country and proud of it. And I am snooty he would say;; (except he would say it in a VERY colorful way;;) lol! (But I’m not snotty I am pretty darn country too as those of y’all who have heard me talk know;) But no matter how much teasing he has given me over the years, I am proud of him. He is a hard worker and is finally getting some recognition on FIXER UPPER. That’s right, Jimmy Don is on HGTV’s Fixer Upper. I am not even going to link to this show’s site, because Magnolia and this show are a sensation y’all. Total sensation!
And no I haven’t met Chip and Joanna but he sure has and their success has been a blessing to many in the Waco Community including him and I am so happy for them all! Waco is a special place that has always gotten overlooked over the years. Its smack down between Dallas and Austin. Then you add in some Davidians and you get a bad rep. Our Grandpa Grusendorf grew up in old East Waco and we loved to hear him tell stories of what it was like back then riding his bike all over town delivering newspapers or during the crazy tornado that hit in the early 1950s. I love me some Waco, Texas.
And I have so many clients that LOVE this show and mention it often….When I say “oh yeah my brother has been on that show” and they are starstruck and I love it! They are like “OMG shut up REALLY he is your brother?” It’s hilarious!
Jimmy Don, the people love you! Even though you cray Bubba!
Kudos to Chip and Joanna for appreciating local talent and being so good to Waco. Here are JDH and Joanna making some metal magic.
Jimmy Don has been making metal art for years. For the Texas Rangers, Texas Monthly, people far and wide both custom and in stores. His badges and flag holders are really popular. So now in addition to his own design he is also making signs for the Gaines’ show and online shop like this below…which he can also do custom.
Just look at that JDH sign all hanging up on that shiplap wall!
I love this Good Eats sign too!
This Texas badge is a Stars Over Texas original!
So proud of you Bubba, keep up the hard work but don’t work too hard . . . you deserve a vacation soon!
Here he is loaded up with a load of metal to take to Magnolia…see his sticker “doin’ bidnis” … that is Jimmy Don! All work all the time! Don’t work too hard Bubba, you need a vacation!
You can shop JDH signs here at the Magnolia website, or go by and see him in Crawford if you want something custom. And you can reach him by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or visit his website
Stay tuned here, who knows maybe we will collaborate on some monograms or a kitchen sign one day…I am feeling it~! What would you like to see Jimmy Don and I create???
