Marburger's Best (revised)

Theresa of Cottage Gardens (who I've featured in previous blogs) and Debra of the Tattered Cat both displayed their unique treasures at the Marburger Show this past week. Their displays were fabulous, but I don't have to tell you that. If you've ever seen them in previous shows, not only in Texas, but Georgia and Brimfield, you'll know what I mean. They both have such of way of putting together things that's amazing. Don't forget that Theresa will be in the next issue of Country Living. I've seen the proofs and they are amazing!! Her house is just as fabulous as her displays, maybe more. I'm still in awe at her creative talent. She is in the process of creating a new blog, the address is http://cottagetiques.blogspot.com/ and maybe she'll feature more pictures of her home. For those of you that don't know Theresa, she is from Kentucky and does several shows a year. She's also opened a shop in her hometown. Debra is from Tennessee and is moving into Dawn and Cindy's Antique Shop in Georgia, The Plum Tree Antiques. To see more of Debra's things, check her out at Dawn and Cindy's blog at: http://plumtreeantiques.blogspot.com. These pictures are the recent ones I took at Marburger:

And, the picture below was Linda Parker. She's another creative person. She sets up at the Austin Citywide Show and she's in Uncommon Objects Antiques in Austin Texas:

This last picture was of French Vanilla; she was in last month's Country Living. Her booth at Marburger was great as well.

  2. Lidy,

    Thanks for stopping by. I'll try to keep posting cool pictures. I also love to visit other people's blogs to see what new ideas they may have or new places I may want to visit, even if only in my dreams.

  4. Hi Theresa...Thanks for your visit. Oh...I wish I could have been with you on these trips. What wonderful eye candy! I could have gone and carried your purse...held the camera while you took pictures...something. I wouldn't have gotten in the way.

  5. Hi Theresa,

    Love, Love all of your pictures! I know that the next Marburger and Zapp Hall Shows are this Fall, is that right? I was wondering if you could share (even in a post) tips on the best way to get the total Marburger,Zapp Hall Show experience for us novices that are dreaming of a trip. My friends and I may try to hit the Fall Shows but would love your expert advice!

    Thanks so much,
