Back last Spring Diane Cook & I took our fella's & went to visit the sweet gal in the photo below. She is none other than Linda from Willow's Nest Farm. We were looking at her cute B&B that she had for sale in the darling town of Burton, TX which is very close to Round Top. Both the guys thought they didn't want property "in town" but, Diane & I LOVED the property & all of the buildings on it. Don't you love the bed that she has set up in her cute space at Marburgers?
I LOVED the pillows she had with the adorable baby dress stitched onto the front.
And I LOVE the way she has the rusty metal walls yet hung a beautiful garland of vintage laces.
I almost bought that beautiful lacy dress on the hanger below (to wear over my Magnolia Pearl bloomers) but, was still in "sticker shock". LOVE the lacy cones that Linda made.
Next is Terry's Shop. Darn, I can't remember her last name. She lives part time in Colorado & part time in Arizona. I bought my beautiful lace panels from her the last time I went to the Round Top show a couple of years ago. The bed in the photo below was stunning (too bad I couldn't crop the fan out of the photo but, it was nice to have the breeze).
Terry has a real knack for display. LOVE the gold wings below. Where could I put those?
And the grungy old display case was SOLD but, what I LOVED was the crown. Sorry Sandy they were out of my price range EVEN for a BDay!
The most interesting thing was this Murphy Tub shown below. Just like a Murphy Bed which would fold down at night for you to sleep & fold up to go in a closet by day... the tub did the same thing. Check out the heat source for a HOT bath. Right on top!!!!! This baby had a SOLD tag on it & Terry said it had been purchased & would be in Victoria Magazine in the future. NEVER HAD SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE! That night the vendors were staying open late & Terry had plans to ice down beer & wine in this baby.
Next was a jewelry designers booth that I had loved 2 years ago. And Susie fell in LOVE with this gal & her clever displays & the whole feel of her space. She makes the jewelry out of found objects or vintage jewelry & then uses vintage counter cards as her display piece. You buy the jewelry ON the card. But, the gal had terrible business cards (orange card stock stamped with the info on it) & Susie tried to talk her into starting a blog & new cards. Susie is going to surprise her & do some business cards for her & send them to her. Susie said "she is TOO talented to have cards that look like that". Susie has a heart of gold. She sooooooooooooooooo fell in LOVE with Texas
Susie also loved the Muse for the shop in the large photo. See how she used old greeting card spinners to hold the cabinet cards? Hmmm I have a couple of those in the storage unit.
