Round Top Frenzy & Theresa’s Blog Party!

Round Top Spring 2011

As everyone knows I am A TWITTER with excitement for the up coming Antique Show in Round Top, TX this spring. I did a post HERE that listed all the AMAZING, FUN ,TALENTED gals who are coming with me. And I can now tell you the list has GROWN!!!!! We have friends coming from California & Arizona as well as many from around the great state of TEXAS! I have added another new Arizona friend Barb to the mix via my friendship with Joy. Barb & I spent over an HOUR visiting on the phone & setting up a dinner for one night while we are there. She is just starting into jewelry design & is very excited about taking classes with my friends & mentors Diana Frey & Diane Cook. Isn’t it funny how those threads connect us to each other.

The Button above (& Below) were designed by/for my precious friend Diane Cook. For she is going to be one of the featured artist at Theresa’s Blog Party which will be held in Theresa’s booth right at the entrance of the famed ZAPP HALL! OUR GROUP will be there with bells on!

Last year Diane & I attended the party & really enjoyed our time there. Theresa does an amazing job of planning & putting this together. Everyone get’s together to enjoy a bit of food & drink, shop, & get to know each other. So many of us visit with each other via our blogs/emails but, it’s GREAT to put a face with a name. THANK YOU Theresa for doing this for us. And I am soooooooooooo pleased you have chosen Diane as a “SPECIAL GUEST” as Diane’s work is AMAZING! So, as you see here she will be one of the featured guests at the Blog Party. But, she will also have a booth at the Marburger Farm Antique Show that opens Tuesday March 29th. Be sure & stop by & see her at both locations if you are in the area.

To be dressed in Magnolia Pearl Style be sure & click on this button & go visit my sweet friend Cindy Craine. She is having a give away where the winner will get an authentic pair of Magnolia Pearl Bloomers. Cindy is a MP Fan & I think half her closet is Magnolia Pearl. What a little doll she is all dressed in her finery!

This morning I was laying in my bed & drinking my first few CUPPA’s of coffee (a morning ritual) & enjoying the new FLEA MARKET STYLE MAGAZINE which I just adored.

I missed getting to go to her Christmas Open House & I am sad for sure!!! I am anxious to go this spring. She does an open house twice a year. Get the magazine & enjoy as well as BE SURE TO CLICK on her name above & it will take you to her blog where you will fall in LOVE with post after post.

In the Party Planning Post I showed you the Flea Market Cart that I ADORE which belongs to Shea & Debbie !

And Joy is making liners for her cart & for sale. Isn’t hers cute? She will be stylin for sure in those fields. If this is your style hop over to see her (click her name above for the link).

But, in the new Flea Market Style Magazine I fell HARD for this little jewel made by Amy Hanna. NOW the hunt is on for the bags & a trip to the Army Navy Surplus Store is a must…. WISH ME LUCK with this project.

ARE YOU LOVING THIS? Do you know of anyone selling the bags? If so please let me know. It’s just so DIFFERENT than anything else I’ve seen. ANOTHER PROJECT!!!!!!!!! LIKE I NEED ANOTHER PROJECT!!!!!!!!

Speaking of projects… I have completed my Bijoux Box INSIDE & OUT for Moulin Rouge Art Event (see post HERE) & with some more help from Jan the pillow for the Pocket Pillow Swap (hosted by precious SANDY) is now complete. I will try to get photos of it posted soon. Until then… I have company for a week so I might seem a bit MIA! Have a wonderful week!

Hugs! Charlene

Ok, thaat's it!! I have heard and read so much about this Round Top TX, I think I'm going to jump in my car and take a look.
It looks like so much fun, and I would love to put some faces with blogs. I am also a big fan of the special guest. Wow what a talented woman. So if you don't mind please drop me a e-mail with all the details and I just might make tracks from Utah to Texas.
