April Fredericksburg Trade Days

This upcoming weekend is time for another Fredericksburg Trade Days.  I know it's also Easter Sunday but you can always come early and shop on Friday or Saturday.

I know I haven't had time to show my space during this past show at Renck Hall or even the Blog Party.  As soon as I return I'll show you more.

In the meantime, I hope you come to Trade Days to see what I'm going to do with the Pink Awning:



I've got big ideas for it.  Hope to see you there.

Inspiration from Judy Hill

I've said many times just how much Judy Hill inspires me and I know that she inspires so many of you out there.  She just has her own style and the way she combines architectural items with industrial items and when she throws in a mix of plants, flowers, and her vignettes well I can't help but love her things. 

Take a look and tell me what you think:




Judy and Billy always include arbors they make.  Each one is unique and different.  This one was just so inspirational and loved the chandy too.



Here's one side of their booth.






 Loved the display cabinet.  Before her I would have never thought to include one and she's even used them in her home.  Her booth was at the Marburger Farm show where she's at each season.  Hope you enjoyed seeing her booth.  If you want to see more of her style, you can find her on Facebook at J Hill Designs.

Don't forget this coming up weekend is not only Easter Sunday but it's also time for another Fredericksburg Trade Days.  There's lots of changes going on here, a new Barn is being built.  Hope to see you there.  Have a great week.

Antique Show Inspiration

There were so many creative and inspiring booths at the Round Top Antique Show that I just didn't know where to start.  It took me a few days to wind down and take care of all that needed to be taken of while I was gone to the shows, but I could't wait to show you what all I saw there that inspired me. So I thought I'd start with Donald's booth.  He always inspires me with all he creates.  You have to stand there a while and just stare at all his vignettes, there's just so much to see.

Here's Donald Sparks' booth at Marburger Farm:


He had a little bit of everything, Architectural,  Americana, Primitives, Garden Items, French and so much more:











 All the awnings he used was probably my favorite since I just love using awnings.  If you can't get enough of his displays, he'll be at the Sugar Moon Antique Show in Hico Tx at the end of April. I'm already planning a trip there. 

I have so much more to show you and tell you about my time at Antique Week.

Let's Meet @ Renck Hall on Tuesday

Just a quick reminder that we'll be unloading on Tuesday morning at Renck Hall in downtown Warrenton Texas.  We are located by the alley way (that's what we call it) as you either enter into Zapp Hall or exit from that field.  We're bringing an awesome load of treasures.  Hope to see you during the show:



One quick reminder, we are having a BLOG PARTY.  It's going to be on Friday March 28 at 6pm.  Food is being provided for a small donation, walking taco's.  It's going to be at a new venue, The Rendezvous down from Marburger Farm.

 It's going to be a fun time at the shows and can't wait to see everyone!

Marburger Farm Roll Call

I love this time of year, when you can attend other shows and get so many ideas and inspirations from other fellow vendors.  This Spring I'm really looking forward to seeing what is new at the Marburger Farm Antique Show.

Marburger Farm has well over 300 vendors that set up in tents and out buildings and there's just so much to see.  They also have several places that you can pick up breakfast from or stay and have lunch too.  I'll head over on early Tuesday morning, hoping to beat the crowd, because you know they'll be a line of cars for miles if you don't go early.

I'm really looking forward to seeing these friends and new spaces too that I haven't seen before.  Take a look:


Theresa of Time Worn Interiors

Next is Judy Hill of JHill Designs:


Then I can't wait to see and meet the Perspective Design Crew:


Also looking forward to seeing Mike and Nancy of House Wren:


And I can't wait to see what Agnes has done to her outdoor space:


 and of course I'll probably run to Donald's space, he's so creative:


And of course I can't wait to get the best hug ever from this pretty girl and see her creativity too:



as well as seeing Shelly of Sweet Pea and Lauri of Lauri Evans Designs and so many others.  It's going to be a fun time there.  Maybe I'll see you there too.  Remember they open on April 1st.

I wanted to give a shout out to Tricia of The Red Door Antiques.



She's from Kentucky and finds the most unique things.  You can find her this Spring at The Red Barn Antique Show in Round Top Texas.

She always travels with her companion and yes her husband too:


So if you're wondering which direction to go to find her:


Just look for the booth at The Red Barn with the happy customers:

Renck Hall & Field

I'm so excited to announce that we will be at Renck Hall and field starting ONE WEEK from today.  We'll be there March 25 until April 6.

This is one antique show that you don't want to miss, so load up the kids and dog and as soon as you arrive on Highway 237 you'll know you've hit Junker's Paradise:


This is how your car will look once you've found all the cool treasures in the fields.

I am having a Blog Party this year, which will be on Friday March 28th at 6pm.  It will be held at a new field that Gina Galvin from Peacock Park and her friend Carrie are opening called at Rendezvous Field on Highway 237, down from Marburger Farm.   Just look for the Yellow House:



Bring yourself and come hungry, she'll have walking taco's.  I'll bring the dessert.  Hope to see you there.

1982 What a Great Year!

March 12, 1982 I remember it like it was just yesterday.  Waiting for our first born son to come into the world.  I was such a young mother, was so nervous, wondering what he would look like, would I be a good mother, as long as he was healthy was all that mattered.

Of course we waited all day for his arrival and finally around 7pm he came into this world.  I had to be put to sleep so I didn't actually see when he was born but I remember waking up and I couldn't wait to hold him. I think for the first month of his life he was constantly held by someone.

Today he turns 32, I can't believe how fast time has flown.  He's grown into such a handsome man and we couldn't be prouder of him.


He's the one in the middle.  This picture was taken at Royer's in Round Top a while back.


Happy Birthday Son!!!  We love you and wish you many more.

March Fredericksburg Trade Days

One show down this month and two more to go. 

This week we are headed to beautiful Fredericksburg Texas for another Trade Days.  And with it being Spring Break it should be a good one.  Not only is the weather going to cooperate with us for this Friday through Sunday, but Spring is making a welcoming entrance as well next week.



We will be bringing more great things for this show and then we'll be loading up for Antique Week in Texas which means in less than 14 days we will be setting in Warrenton Texas at Renck Hall

I can't wait for the great adventures that awaits us for these next two weeks.  It's also our oldest son's birthday this week and this is always a joyous occasion for us anytime we can celebrate our son's birthdays. 

Hope you get out and enjoy the sunshine this week and have a great week too.

Cat Spring Antique Show is Tomorrow

Just a reminder that the Cat Spring Tx Antique and Garden Show is tomorrow at 9am.  I love how my space has come together.  I'm inside the barn and outside as well:

Love the chippy white primitive cabinet I brought and the tall garden arbor is pretty fabulous too.  There are so many awesome vendors this time at this show.  I hope to see you this weekend.

20 Days!!!!!

What do you think of when you think of TEXAS?


Pic Via: Junk Gypsy's

Do you conjure up visions of BBQ (The Salt Lick is our favorite one in Dripping Springs Texas, be sure to sit on the screened porch for the best ambiance), 2 Stepin to music by 'Ol George singing into the wee hours of the night, is it the shopping that draws you here, a good lookin guy in Cowboy Boots and a gallon size Hat, is it the bright lights of Dallas or Houston or the Austin nightlife and eateries (and you know there's some good ones here like Guero's Taco Bar on Congress). 

Or is it the beautiful drives through the countryside like in the gorgeous Texas Hill Country, Fredericksburg Trade Days and all the antiquing that can be done on any given weekend in almost in any town?

During Springtime, do you think about all the gorgeous Blue Bonnets and wild flowers blooming all over our great state.


Pic Via: Junk Gypsy's

For me, I start getting nervous about this time in March because it means we are so close to setting up and shopping at the Biggest Antique Show in Texas (or the country for that matter)!

We are 20 DAYS away from being in Warrenton Texas to start setting up for the Spring shows.  This year we'll be at Renck Hall and Field, we'll be outside the field as you exit into the Zapp Hall field. 

But before we head to Warrenton Texas, we have two more shows we'll be at, The Cat Spring Texas Antique and Garden Show is this weekend:


Then, we'll load up for the Fredericksburg Trade Days show the next Friday to Sunday:


 And before I know it I'll turn onto Highway 237 and before long and many day dreams in between and then I'll see the Warrenton Texas sign and I'll know I'm home for the next two weeks:


Read my favorite post on Hwy 237.  See ya down the junk road...

Cat Spring Antiques & Garden Show

Happy Monday everyone!  We are busily preparing for the Rural Texas Cat Spring Antiques and Garden Show and I'm super excited to be bringing a truck load of new treasures.

I hope you'll join us this Saturday and Sunday for Farm Fresh finds along with new Garden Treasures.  We'll be located inside one of the buildings.  It's such a beautiful drive and the Hall is just a gorgeous old Dance Hall.  Just think you can start junkin before the Round Top/Warrenton Antique Shows start at the end of the month.




Hope to see you there.  Have a great week.

March Antique Events

Can you believe that tomorrow is March 1st?  Where has the time flown to.  There are so many awesome events to shop at in March and I'm so excited to be at some of these events that I can hardly stand it.  You know Texas Antique Week is just around the corner and for those that may not know Antique Week in Texas goes for almost three weeks, not just one.  It's a junker's paradise, so much to see for so many miles.  It spans many towns and mainly the Round Top/Warrenton Tx towns.

Here are the March Events that we will be at:

Mar. 8-9 is the Cat Spring Tx Garden Antique Show by Rural Texas  and we will be inside the building.  I'm so excited to be here because for many years this show kicked off the antique season in Texas.  It will be different that we are inside but that way we don't have to worry about the weather and you know in Texas it could be storming one minute and sunny and bright the next.  For more information about this show, click HERE.  It's a beautiful Hall and a beautiful drive there too.  You'll be glad you came to the show.





Pic: My booth during previous show with Rural Texas

After this show, we'll be heading to beautiful Fredericksburg Texas on Mar. 14-16.  We always look forward to spending time at the Fredericksburg Tx Trade Days show.  It's a great event with tons of Antique/Junk Dealers.  And since I can't remember showing you pics of my space, here they are:








Then, it will be time for "Antique Week".  We will be setting up in beautiful Warrenton Tx on Mar  25 - April 5, 2014.  You can find us at the Renck Hall field.



We will be hosting the Blog Party at Gina Galvin and Carrie Hurley's new field on Friday March 28 at 6pm at The Rendezvous, almost directly across from the Marburger Farm antique show on Hwy. 237.  To find out information about this new show, check out their Facebook Page.

Now hold on...

this isn't all the shows you can attend this next month, here's more:

Mar. 7-8: Fort Worth Tx Antiques and Art Show:



Mar. 15-16: Huntsville Tx Rusty Chippy Vintage Hippy & Garden Show 



And of course Canton Texas Flea Market has started and it's a fun place to shop too this weekend.  Hope to see you on the junkin road this month.  Have a great Friday and weekend!
