Round Top Part Two

No trip to Marburger Farms would be complete without the MADNESS of Magnolia Pearl!!!!!  Usually I go in there & almost always come out with a few things but, this year… I was a good girl!  For some reason I just couldn’t go there.  I am a little claustrophobic & her tent just seemed TOOOOOO MUCH with TOOOOOO MANY this time. And… I’m just not a burlap girl.  Really???? Burlap to wear???? Stinky, scratchy burlap???? Do you like the look???? Not me.

Cindy did some shopping (I borrowed some of her photos for this post).  I did get to see my favorite “Pearl Helper” Krista…  As you can see we were OUTSIDE THE TENT!  This sweet girl is just a DOLL!!!!
Charlene & Krista
Below you can see she & Cindy looking cute as ever & the PILES of ruffles.  NOW……. That’s more my style.

And the decor of the tent was some of the same from last year with the wire MANNI’s (this one was on TOP of her tent under the big top of Tent A)
but she added a few different things…
Like a Bicycle with a bird cage, a doll & of course lots of “Pearl Style” lace.  See….
And then the big MANNI’s had all sorts of stuff on them
Stuff like BONES…. ICK!!!!!
A little of everything for everyone.  But, my favorite of all was this amazing velvet jacket that Cindy just HAD to buy.
Don’t you love it?  Aren’t she & Krista just DOLLS?  Speaking of dolls…
Diane's Dolls #1
Out in the fields we hooked up with my buddy Diane Cook of Rosa & Josie’s.  She spotted these vintage dolls & was wishing she had her camera.  Well, I loaned her mine.  See what I mean about the variety of goodies to be found?
Dolls of all kinds.

And why oh WHY did I not buy that beautiful pair of satin vintage wedding slipper there on the right??? I wanted them, I thought about it, I didn’t & now I’m kicking myself.  But, I did get one of those amazing feather dusters in black.
I love this shop.  I think her name is Tracy & she is from Colorado.  I buy from her every year.  Her style is so fun… Like candle holders with NOT Candles but, sheet music rolled to look like candles.
And then I always LOVE the work & original display of Skip to My Lu.  Everything is displayed on the ORIGINAL vintage cabinet card.

Speaking of coooooooooooool displays…
I LOVED the creativity of this vendor using beautiful tree trunks with that cool peely bark as supports & a wind mill as the top.  Soooooooooooooooo  over the top cool in a metal industrial style.
Speaking of metal…
This piece was metal & the most luscious color!!!!  The vendor told me it was from France & was of the same type/style as The Statue of Liberty.  I JUST LOVE THAT COLOR!  And so wish I had a place to put it.
Chandi Love
And then this beauty caught my eye.  I was walking way out in a hot dusty isle out by Clutter.  And with no electricity hooked to it… the sparkle caught my eye. HUGE!!!!!!!!!  This baby is HUGE!!!! 4 foot by 4 foot.  And as you all know hubby & I have been talking of building this HUGE barn with a very upscale “apartment” in it (& killer studio) but, we’re still in the looking for land phase.  HOW can you buy the chandi before the land? 
Chandi 1
Well Cindy fell in love with her too.  She is redoing a new studio space & although the room in not huge in size it does have 20 foot ceilings.  So, the decision was that since she has a place to put it NOW… she would buy it & hang it.  AND IF/WHEN I get my new building &  if I wanted it then I could buy it from her & we’d find her another one… Oh I’m so glad ONE OF US OWN THIS BABY!!!!!  But, shhhhhhhhhhhhhh don’t tell her hubby…  Do you think he’ll notice the new addition?   Come back for more adventure in Round Top…
HUGS! Charlene

Magnolia Pearl is too far off the charts for me. It is like wearing cast offs found in a dumpster. I am always amazed at what people will do to be chic......Yuck...
Have a Great Weekend!!

Well I'm glad you are being honest, cuz I don't like some of that stuff either....
Great post Charlene.
Lot's of eye candy for sure.
Cindy, I'm borrowing that VELVET Jacket,... nice.
Have a great weekend, what's left of it.
