In the fields of Round Top you can find anything…
Burlap for table skirts or teepee’s. Yes, that’s the door to a cute little tent of clothes, jewelry & home decor.
These talented folks bring it all… From beautiful to RUSTY!!!
Thank goodness there was a SOLD sign on the fountain below or it would have been shipped home for sure. You can walk for MILES!!!! Did you hear that word MILES? You walk & walk & walk…then you drive & you walk some more. Yes, we are talking miles of tents set up in Cow Fields.
Fountain LOVE!!!! I loved the color, the design, everything but, the SOLD sign. We shopped for 2 days in the fields.
And then on Tuesday Marburger Farms Antique Show opens & the anty is upped two fold (usually the prices too). This is where the serious design stuff & displays come into their own. Above is the amazing aviary designed by Linda (& her husband) of Willows Nest. Linda used to own a dress shop in San Luis Obispo & was good friends with my buddy Diana Frey but, now she lives in Burton, TX.
She does stunning displays & vignettes.
While at the special Bloggers luncheon on Monday we met this sweet gal Gwen (below on the right with Cindy on her left). She needed a ride back to Marburgers so we gave her that ride with the promise of a good discount when the show opened the next day. It’s a good thing I had the “discount” as I needed it!
Shells were all the rage at the show this year so I am glad that I have been ahead of the curve with my “OCEAN LOVE” already in full bloom. I bought many shells & a lot of French papers & documents from Gwen & her sister.
Next up was Judy Hills beautiful space.
I have always wanted to go to her Open House in her home in East Texas but, never seem to make it. Instead I always visit her at Marburgers.
Sandy was so excited about meeting Judy that she needed a photo OP!
Doesn’t everyone use a chicken nester for display? And a manni in a wheelbarrow?
And a rusty spring for a lamp???? And a bed full of hay???
And one of my very FAVORITE THINGS I saw at the show was this wonderful Coin Purse Art Display.
There was manni’s with ATTITUDE!!!! And a manni that I got a great idea from… Cindy gave me a cruddy one & I think I’ll decoupage her to look like this baby on the left (Below).
Well, you’ve been a very good audience but, I’m afraid I’ve made this post soooooooooooo full of eye candy you may leave me. So, I’ll say good bye for now but, promise to return with more goodies from Round Top. Do you promise to come back? HOPE SO!
